"The time has come to join Doctor Monty in The House, where an ancient evil threatens the survival of our heroes' immortal souls..."
— Mission Briefing

Revelations is the twenty-third Zombies map and the final map featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The map takes place within Agartha after the release of the Shadowman from the Summoning Key. In contrast to other maps, the cosmic appearance of Revelations is distinct from other previous maps. The map features recurring gameplay elements such as the Guard of Fafnir and the Ragnarok DG-4s, but introduced new features such as the Corruption Engines and a new type of enemy, the Fury. Furthermore, fragments of past maps such as Shangri-La and Origins feature as structural components of the map.

The Primis crew return for the final time as the playable characters. Enemies such as the Panzersoldat, the Parasites and the Spiders also return.

It was released on September 6th 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and then later released on October 6th 2016 for the Xbox One and PC as part of the Salvation map pack. This was also accessible to Black Ops III Season Pass holders.


Upon Primis Richtofen summoning the souls of Ultimis Dempsey, Nikolai and Takeo in Gorod Krovi, they are transported into "The House". Just before they arrive, Maxis instructs the children to 'put the toys away' and ensure that 'the windows are locked before [they] come down to the basement'. As each of the souls arrive in "The House", Monty transforms each member of Ultimis into their younger self as a means to restore their innocence.

Upon the arrival of Primis, they bring the Summoning Key along with them, which Maxis is mesmerized by. Primis Richtofen and Maxis destroy the teleporter to prevent any further corruption of the universe. Later, Maxis begins hearing the voice of the Shadowman and is lured down to the basement where the Summoning Key is located. Maxis accidentally released the Shadowman, which trapped him inside the Key. As a consequence, he releases the Apothicons from the Dark Aether and corrupts Monty's 'perfect world'. Primis fights alongside Monty to banish the Apothicons and defeat the Shadowman once and for all.


"The House" (starting room)

This is where the player(s) will begin. It is set within Agartha. The area is spacious with plenty of room for escape opportunities and area to run, but quite linear in the sense that the player(s) can generally move in one direction. Each door to the left and right of the player(s) cost 500 points to open which lead to Origins on the left and Shangri-La on the right. There are five spawn locations for the zombies.

Intro Cutscene

Intro Cutscene Transcript

Monty: Okay, uh... let's recap a bit, shall we?

A view of a countryside can be seen before the view goes towards a house.

Monty: This was meant to be a new start, really, a perfect world, free from all the evil that had corrupted each and every corner of the known and unknown universe.

The camera goes up a flight of stairs and down a hall.

Monty: It was going to be a place of safety for the kids, the little yous... You - little... well, so far, so good.

Monty opens a door, revealing Fluffy, Samantha, Eddie and three other children resembling "Tank" Dempsey, Nikolai Belinski, Takeo Masaki before an airhorn blares. The kids stop playing with their toys and look around before the screen goes black.

Monty: But things started to go wrong soon after you arrived.

Maxis can be seen facing a teleporter as the Origins cast arrives.

Monty: Now, I can understand your initial shock coming face-to-face with Maxis, especially after so long.

Richtofen hugs Maxis as the others look around the room. Richtofen then reveals the Summoning Key to Maxis, who looks at the Summoning Key with a shocking look as he begins to hear voices before shaking his head as Richtofen puts the Key away.

Monty: But you did the right thing. You followed the plan. You brought the Summoning Key here, and you destroyed that bloody machine once and for all.

Maxis then hands Richtofen an axe as the two then dismantle the MDT. The screen goes black.

Monty: Thing is... Maxis went and ballsed everything up.

Maxis can be seen asleep within a chair as he begins to hear voices until he wakes up.

Mysterious Voice: Please... you must help me.

The door to the basement of the house opens as Maxis heads downstairs.

Monty: He heard voices, you see. Calling to him.

Maxis walks over to the Summoning Key, which is now shaking and glowing violently as he slowly reaches for it.

Mysterious Voice: Only together... can we prevent the destruction of your world.

The Summoning Key then flies into Maxis' hand. Suddenly, he is forced to activate the Summoning Key as he is preserved within it, with the Summoning Key being caught by the now physically released Shadowman.

Monty: It wasn't REALLY his fault, you know he hasn't got his soul yet, all I got was a brain. Anyway, the KEY thing - as in the thing that is key - is that Maxis fiddled around with the Summoning-thingamajig and accidentally released an even bigger bastard.

The Shadowman flies through the hall before exiting the house.

Monty: Someone even I didn't know was in there - The Shadowman.

The camera views his face as he then breaks a part of the porch as he levitates to a nearby hill overlooking the valley.

Monty: The one and only - original - harbinger of doom.

The Shadowman then creates a massive rift in the sky, causing lots of destruction to everything as everything becomes broken. The remains of the entire area are seen as a set of floating islands appearing out of thin air. A view of the Shadowman now in his Apothicon form then turns back as the camera zooms into a window, where the Origins crew and Monty are.

Monty: So, I am going to be absolutely truthful with you. Things have gone way too far out of control. This isn't any vague "woo-hoo-hoo" evil, we are talking about the Apothicons.

Several Apothicon beasts are seen floating in an unknown space, entering and exiting a massive blue glowing sphere. One of the beasts then spit a blue meteor into a portal.

Monty: The most powerful and evil entities in all the existences that ever... existed. And now they're here in our perfect world.

A fractured view of Nacht der Untoten can be seen as zombies with red eyes close in on The House. The Origins crew then steps outside as they ready their weapons.

Monty: I'm not going to sugarcoat things... It's a fucking shitshow.

Monty closes the door behind them as the shadows of the zombies approaching them can be seen behind them on the wall.

Ending Cutscene

Outro Cutscene Transcript

The group gets teleported to Samantha's room in the House. ​In the room, a Monkey Bomb, a rocket, a toy rabbit, a toy elephant and the Teddy Bear is seen in the middle of the room, circling around the Summoning Key before infusing with it. S.O.P.H.I.A. is seen at the back of the room.

Ludvig Maxis: Sophia...

S.O.P.H.I.A: Maxis...

Ludvig Maxis: You know what we must do, my dear.

S.O.P.H.I.A is then seen preserving the Summoning Key into her A.I. body.

S.O.P.H.I.A: Yes, my love.

Ludvig Maxis: We will do it together. As one we are, now and forever.

The screen fades to black. S.O.P.H.I.A is seen zipping into the giant blue Apothicon Sun, followed by the Summoning Key. The Apothicon-infested world now ceases to exist and shows a scene in space. Screen fades to black once again and a sunrise can be seen.

Monty: With the evil vanquished, I can start making it all nice again. No undead, no Apothicons, no Shadowman. All of it gone, forever, but, here's the funny thing. You snowflakes shouldn't even still be here.

The scene changes to the four characters, as Dempsey looks down at one of his blood vials, with it being empty.

Monty: You should be fading out of existence by now. Those blood vials...

Dempsey and Richtofen share a glance at each other.

Richtofen: I was wondering when you would bring this up.

Monty: They're from realities we already closed off. They shouldn't be here, they CAN'T be here!

Monty walks up to Richtofen as he grabs his empty blood vial.

Monty: Such a paradox means you're putting my perfect world at risk.

Richtofen takes a step back from Monty.

Monty: You guys and your bloody free will. What to do? WHAT TO DO? Well, you certainly can't stay here.

Nikolai and Takeo nod at each other and are about to draw their weapons when Richtofen interrupts.

Richtofen: You could send us somewhere else, somewhere we've never been.

Monty: Mhm, I suppose I could make a little corner somewhere in history. A place where I can dump some of the other shit that I have left over, or I just wipe you from existence.

The four characters are seen fading away from existence.

Monty: Ooh, hang on! Actually, that all works out perfectly!

The screen fades to white then to a close-up on Dempsey. The screen pans back to show Dempsey, Richtofen, Takeo and Nikolai standing on a mount, each wielding an original elemental staff and wearing crusader armor. A crowd is seen cheering for them as the four raises their staffs as conquering heroes. The screen transitions into the "Primis" image from Origins. The image burns and the words "THE END" appear.

  • The map features many different aspects of previous maps, such as Mob of the Dead and Origins.
    • The maps that make up the various locations in Revelations are Origins, Mob of the Dead, Kino der Toten, Der Eisendrache, Shangri-La, Verrückt, and Nacht der Untoten.
      • Call of the Dead and "Five" are referenced in Radio Messages.
      • The test tubes found in the bunker of Zetsubou No Shima can be seen when entering the Verrückt portion of the map.
      • The round change music is synonymous with where the player's located. For example, if the player is in the Origins trenches, they will hear the Origins round changing theme; if they were in Nacht der Untoten, they would hear the original round changing theme, and so on. This is also the case for when the player dies, as the Game Over music is synonymous with the location the player died in.
        • The round change music in the Verrückt, Kino der Toten, and Shangri-La sections seems to have changed; Instead of using the original round change music, each map gets its own unique music. For example, in Kino der Toten, as the round ends, it reuses the one in Buried, and as the round starts, it reuses the theme used in The Giant and Der Eisendrache with a sound effect of a film projector.
  • Unlike in previous maps, all of the icons relating to the previous Easter Eggs (the Summoning Key for Apocalypse Averted, and the Gateworms for Paradoxical Prologue, My Brother's Keeper, Seeds of Doubt, and Love and War) will appear on the map selection screen.
  • The zombie's eye color are red, much like Mob of the Dead and Gorod Krovi.
  • According to some audio quotes, the GKZ-45 Mk3 was originally supposed to be in the map.[1]
  • The Demonic Announcers were originally supposed to be either Dr. Monty or the Shadowman, possibly depending on the players' choice, but this was cut from the final version of the map.[2]
    • Also found in the video as well as one of the Revelations trailers was the Rocket Shield from Shadows of Evil and Der Eisendrache, but it was replaced with the Guard of Fafnir.
