Fans have discovered a Doctor Who Easter Egg hidden in Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
Buried in Nuk3town – the update version of the original Nuketown map, originally based on the Nuclear Test site as seen in the likes of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull only less terrible and featuring 100% less gophers – if you take the time to shoot off all the arms of all the pursuing futuristic mannequins, they start to act like the Weeping Angels, in that they will all attack you…but only if you’re not looking.
Don’t Blink…not even when your XM-53 goes off.
While it’s not an explicit reference – no, you have to pay for those – it’s not difficult to draw the conclusion that this isn’t some sort of happy Who coincidence. Hold on to your hats but Doctor Who is quite popular in the US and, quite a few of developer Treyarch staff are British.
It isn’t the first time there have been references to Doctor Who – LEGO Batman 3 included a reference to the Weeping Angels before LEGO Dimensions made that connect explicit.
