Today at #SDCC, the new trailer was released for the new zombie mode coming to Call of Duty: WWII! Check out the trailer below, then keep reading for more details on the new mode from Sledgehammer Games!
Call of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies is an original, co-operative mode that unleashes a brand new horror story for Call of Duty zombies fans. Players will embark on a chilling, dark and mysterious journey through Mittelburg, a snowy Bavarian village in Germany, as they attempt to recover priceless works of art stolen by the Axis powers in World War II. This village holds a secret key to an unimaginable and monstrous power, so visitors must be on their toes and beware of the twisted and occult horrors that guard these treasures.
According to the press release, Glen Schofield, Studio Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games, said “With Nazi Zombies, we’re creating a frightening world full of terrifying characters and events that will make you jump and look over your shoulder. There’s an incredible amount of myth and lore, which our team has poured through in our development. This is unlike anything before, we’re taking players to some very dark, grim places in Nazi Zombies. This is one hell of a horror experience.”
Michael Condrey, Studio Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games added, “We couldn’t be more excited to showcase our reveal of Nazi Zombies here at San Diego Comic Con. It’s been great to return to creating a horror-based experience, and with Call of Duty, head back to the Nazi Zombies roots. The team at the studio is proud of the opportunity to deliver something special for the fans.”
Players join a group of international art experts from the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives Section (MFAA) on their dangerous pursuit to reclaim some of the world’s most important works of art from the hands of the Axis powers, all while trying to survive a horror like no other. Here are the characters –
- Jefferson Potts – Strong, assured, and educated, Jefferson has both the military and academic prowess the MFAA need.
- Olivia Durant – A former art historian of the Musée du Louvre, and weapons expert, she is an extremely savvy and capable member of the team.
- Drostan Hynd – A former art thief, this brash and rough character was given a choice: go to jail, or help reclaim stolen art.
- Marie Fischer – A brilliant engineer and tactician, Marie attempts to help salvage stolen treasures and rescue her brother, Klaus.
The 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).
The trailer looks really intriguing. Obviously, it looks really gory and brutal, as a zombie mode should be. I will be curious to see what kind of tweaks they make to the zombie mode, if any. Will it be a typical horde mode? Or something more? We will bring you more info as it becomes available.
