‘Call of Duty: WWII’ dev teases zombies mode reveal for Comic-Con

call of duty wwii zombies mode reveal
Since its debut in Call of Duty: World at War, the franchise’s “zombies” mode has become an essential part of the overall experience for fans. Now, it seems like we’re only a matter of days away from learning how this game type will factor into this year’s Call of Duty: WWII.

Earlier this week, Sledgehammer Games studio head Glen Schofield shared an image teasing the game’s zombies mode on Twitter. An undead maw is accompanied by text reading “July 20,” which seems to suggest that the mode is set to be unveiled at San Diego Comic Con.

Call of Duty, specifically its zombies mode, is no stranger to the event. In 2015, Activision unveiled the star-studded voice cast that took on the horde in Black Ops III, according to a report from Gamespot.

Call of Duty: WWII is a “return to the series’ roots” in many respects, and it seems that its zombies mode is no exception. Just like in World at War, players will be facing off with undead Nazis, rather than the more varied undead opposition that we’ve seen over the last few years.

The image shared by Schofield is pretty disgusting, and sets a much darker tone than we’ve seen from the zombies mode as of late. Recent installments in the franchise have put a comedic spin on zombies — the framing narrative for the mode in Infinite Warfare cast players as actors being tormented by a deranged film director. However, it seems more than likely that the Zombies mode in WWII will go in a very different direction.

Call of Duty fans have plenty to look forward to when it comes to this year’s installment, and a compelling zombies mode will only sweeten the deal. Heading back to the past seems to have shaken things up considerably, and there is already far more hype surrounding WWII than there has been for the past few titles in the series

Call of Duty: WWII is set to release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 3, 2017. San Diego Comic-Con runs from July 20 to 23, with the zombies reveal scheduled for day one of the event.
