Activision brought a lot of fanfare to San Diego Comic-Con this week, including an a look at the new Call of Duty zombies co-op mode. “Call of Duty: WWII – Nazi Zombies” was revealed today at SDCC alongside members of its all-star cast of characters, which in full includes David Tennant, Elodie Yung, Katheryn Winnick, Udo Kier and Ving Rhames. I should add, this game mode looks downright horrifying.
Launching on November 3 as part of Call of Duty: WWII ($59 at Amazon) the Nazi Zombies cooperative mode delivers a sinister original story from Sledgehammer Games, offering up new terrors to the popular Call of Duty zombies mode.
“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,” said Glen Schofield, Studio Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games. “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.”
Call of Duty: WWII – Nazi Zombies 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 (Doctor 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 Nazi Zombies San Diego Comic Con panel was hosted by YouTube personality Greg Miller, co-founder of Kinda Funny Games and featured the cast along with developers from the Sledgehammer Games team. Panel attendees got a first look at all new zombies footage, plus a behind the scenes sneak peek at the making of the new cooperative mode.
Call of Duty: WWII is scheduled for release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
