The fourth and final Call of Duty Black Ops 3 DLC pack, Salvation, was released last week Tuesday for PlayStation 4 and with it the final Zombie map for Black Ops 3, Revelations; a map that has had all Zombie fans extremely excited since the ending of Gorod Krovi was first discovered and players were introduced to Dr Monty.
All of the previous Zombie maps included on all past Treyarch Call of Duty titles have been building up to this point, with Revelations supposedly acting as an end to the Richtofen/Dempsey/Nikolai/Takeo saga. Whether you are interested in the Zombies storyline or not, there is no denying that there is a good number of Zombies players pining to know the fate of these characters.
However, something odd has happened with Revelations; it has been almost a week and the Easter Egg is yet to have been solved. Why is this odd? Well, the Easter Eggs of the previous Black Ops 3 DLC maps were all solved within a matter of hours of the map being released.
Revelations, however, has proven to be rather tricky. Popular Zombie YouTubers have spent hours upon hours searching for the Easter Egg with very limited results of what the steps may be. Treyarch very well may have just created a map that cannot be cracked.
The whole situation is rather odd, particularly seeing that Revelations in itself doesn’t seem to be a very hard map.
Zetsubou No Shima was rather difficult in that it required a lot of points for just about anything to be done in the map and playing the map solo meant not having access to the bunker to switch on power and buy perks for at least five to six rounds. Pack-a-Punch required that even more doors be opened to find parts to unlock the machine, which delayed one even further and resulted an increased likelihood of an early death.
I also found Gorod Krovi to be a rather difficult map, especially in terms of the Easter Egg. There are so many different steps to it, it is a wonder how anyone actually discovered how to finish it. Perhaps I just couldn’t get the feel for this map, but finishing the Easter Egg and reaching Round 36 seems to be the most that I’m ever going to do to on that map.
On Revelations, due to the Easter Egg not yet being discovered, we have been limited to going for high rounds. I’ll readily admit that I’m a pretty average Zombies player, but in my second time playing the map, I was already able to reach Round 31 with a group of friends (the round count could have been higher, but I had to end the match as I had to go somewhere).
Therefore, the reason that the Easter Egg has not been found is definitely not due to the map being too difficult to play (not that the difficult nature of previous maps really stopped anyone before). The perks given by the hats and masks does, however, suggest that some steps in the Easter Egg or the final boss battle is going to be rather difficult.
Due to the YouTubers inability to solve the Easter Egg, I have spent some time searching for the Easter Egg, but have found nothing. At the rate that the discovery of new steps and how to do them is going, it seems that it is still going to take quite a bit of time before there is any proper tutorial on how to beat the Revelations Easter Egg.
