In a press release and video shared at San Diego Comic Con today, Activision announced they’d be doing that thing that I could have sworn they already did but apparently hadn’t:
Call of Duty WWII with Nazi Zombies!
An all-new, twisted take on Activision’s Call of Dutyzombies co-op mode is here. Call of Duty®: WWII – Nazi Zombies, a chilling, dark vision of undead horror, was revealed today at San Diego Comic Con alongside members of its all-star cast of characters, which in full includes David Tennant, Elodie Yung, Katheryn Winnick, Udo Kier and Ving Rhames. Launching on November 3rd as part of Call of Duty: WWII, the Nazi Zombies cooperative mode delivers a sinister original story from Sledgehammer Games, delivering a new definition of terror to Call of Duty zombies.
Call of Duty: WWII – Nazi Zombies is a terrifying, new zombies cooperative experience that transports players into a labyrinth of chilling occult Nazi zombies experiments, and monstrous creations set mythically in World War II. The story unfolds as an international team peels back the vile layers of a malevolent plot masterminded by the Axis powers to harness unimaginable occult forces and create an invincible undead army. Featuring voices and likenesses, the global cast features David Tennant (Dr. Who, Broadchurch), Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Daredevil), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings, The Dark Tower) Udo Kier (Blade, Melancholia) and Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction, Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation).
I’m a fan of First Person Shooters. I’m not any good at First person shooter, but I’m a fan all the same. Call of Duty had been more of a spectator game for me. The franchise had a knack for engaging and realistic story telling and attracting a really aggressive online community that scared the shit out of me.
Nazi Zombies have nothing on the hordes of online gamers who go rabid over a supply drop, camping snipers, or someone like me just plain sucking. On the brights side, Call of Duty WWI: Nazi Zombies will have a co-op story mode so you can play with actual friends not just angry strangers on an online battlefield.
Personally, I think everything except the zombies looks good based on the trailer. Shrugs. It looked like a weird mix of modern art for everything except the zombies which looked like they were pulled from a previous generation of consoles and pasted into the game.
If you can’t wait until November, You can go back to the previous Call of Duty games featuring Zombies:
