So I've been thinking and playing old zombies maps and I don't know if anyone remembers, but in the Buried intro cutscene the 4 characters walk past the pyramids. I thought, woah I wish this could've been a map. I would love to see what could happen with a setting of Egypt. I would've made it in Black Ops 3 Mod Tools, but I don't have a good enough computer or the money to buy one. So I thought I could pass on the idea to a modder here.
Setting: Giza, Egypt, at the pyramids.
Characters: Preferably the Green Run crew (since they passed the pyramids to get to Buried), but the O4 will do.
Backstory: Group 935 have built a facility near the pyramids of Egypt because they discovered an abundance of 115. One of the pharaohs(choose any one) were awakened from their eternal rest and is furious that they dare try to change his land. Then, bodies of Ancient Egyptians start rising from the ground and their pyramid tombs. The zombies eyes will be red. The facility is overrun, and the pharaoh destroys modern day Egypt and rebuild his kingdom. As the characters are passing by, they are lured to the area by a mysterious voice begging for help. You hear an intercom (like Dr. Groph in Der Eisendrache) with the voice telling you his location until he is interrupted and starts screaming in pain. You then hear a blaring alarm and the voice telling you to escape now while you still can and that he is doomed. Then, the ground around the facility and the pyramids start to lift off the very earth itself, so you are now trapped.
Gameplay: The zombies should preferably have new models to make them look Egyptian. Or you can take the body model of Khalil from the campaign and zombify the heads and arms. The map should be about the size of Gorod Krovi at least, because the size of Origins is a bit too much to ask for. The Wundersphere should return. Sliding is replaced by dolphin diving. Afterlife Mode should return, it just makes sense, ancient Egyptians believed in the Afterlife, connect the dots.
Perks: The normal 9 you get throughout BO3, but PhD Flopper and Vulture Aid could be two possibilities imo. Banana Colada you could add I guess if you wanted.
Specialist Weapons: The Skull of Nan Sapwe should be in this map, and it should help do some of the easter egg.
Wonder Weapons: Ray Gun, Ray Gun MK 2, Ray Gun MK 3, Apothicon Servant
Classic Weapons: BAR, MG42, PPSH-41, M1 Garand, STG-44, M1911
Buildables: Dragon Shield, Keeper Protector
Pack a Punch model: Der Eisendrache/Origins Model
Pack a Punch camo: Afterlife camo from BO2 AKA THE RITUAL CAMO FROM SOE BUT BLUE.
Easter Egg Plot: Discover the true identity of the mysterious voice and break the cycle.
Break the cycle- Kill the mysterious voice and end the game
Continue the cycle- Save the mysterious voice and end the game.
Just some ideas, you could expand on this more and pick and choose what you agree with. Heavy scripting and all that would probably be needed. Pass this on to a modder who is very experienced or take the challenge on yourself!
