Zombie killing enthusiasts are in for a treat with the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation’s undead campaign. Santa Monica’s Activision and Treyarch have revealed that the DLC will be starring four well known horror actors.
Robert England (Yes, Freddy Kreuger from Nightmare on Elm Street) Sarah Michelle Geller (Buffy) Michael Rooker (the annoying “white power” guy from The Walking Dead, Mallrats) and Danny Trejo (Machete, Spy Kids) will be voice acting and lending their likenesses as the four playable survivors in the campaign. Treyarch says this zombie experience will be one like never before.
“This is Treyarch’s tribute to the legendary George Romero, who truly defined the zombie genre and whose incredible work has been such an inspiration to our team.” Black Ops director Dave Anthony said, “It was an absolute honor to work with such an amazing and talented cast whose passion and energy brought their characters instantly to life. Fans are going to love it.”
Not only will the Call of the Dead be inspired by the legendary “Godfather of all zombies”, George A. Romero will be also be starring in the Escalation DLC in what looks to be a zombie role from the official trailer. The zombie massacre will be set in a snow-clad Siberia with a shipload of forsaken crew members mobbing your favorite horror stars.
The next Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack will be featuring four new competitive maps along with the zombie map. It’s set to come out on May 3 to Xbox live, most likely for the usual $15. PC and PS3 users will probably get their hands on it about a month afterward, assuming it follows the trend of past releases.
