Zombies have two stories Chaos and Aether. Chaos is about an ancient cult set on destroying the world as we know it. In Aether, players set out to secure their own souls and end up on Alcatraz Island. Call Of Duty Black ops tried its luck with their version of battle royal mode Blackout. Blackout has a twist with perks you can use for a short duration time, also throwing in AI simulated zombies in the zombie locations on the map. Multiplayer mode puts you in the year 2043 playing as elite operators of your choice some of which were brought over from BO3. Automatic health regeneration is removed, and players have to use a manual healing system if they choose. The weapons and the operators have gotten a serious upgrade with a BO2 feel to the game play.

There are so many more games coming out this year it was hard just to talk about the three you have read so I have picked a couple honorable mentions. Hitman 2, Battlefield 5, Just Cause 4, and Call Of Cthulhu. Every gamer has different taste in games from RPG to first-person shooters. 2018 looks like it will satisfy the taste of gamers everywhere.
