Get ready to face “The Devil himself”
Call of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies was first announced back in April and, for the first time, we’re finally getting a detailed look at what the highly anticipated game mode will look like. When compared to its earlier counterparts, WWII Nazi Zombies looks like it may just shape up to be the the most captivating and downright horrifying zombie mode of the entire bunch. Developer Sledgehammer Games dropped a new trailer for the upcoming game mode which also gives players an idea of the eerie story that is connected to their new zombie-filled adventure.
“Players will embark on a chilling and mysterious journey through a snowy Bavarian village in Mittelburg, Germany, as they attempt to recover priceless works of art stolen by the Axis powers in World War II,” an official press release explains. “This village holds a shadowy secret key to an unimaginable and monstrous power. Nothing is as it seems in this zombies horror, as a dark and sinister plot unfolds to unleash an invincible Nazi army of the dead.”
The description itself sells the eerie concept wonderfully but the haunting voice and visuals that are featured in the trailer are what really gives the hype train some serious fuel. It seems like zombies will feel less like a Call of Duty add-on and more like an actual horror game that even newcomers to the series would fall in love with. It’s unclear what exactly this mode will entail, outside of blowing the heads off zombies of course, but the trailer hints at an evil even greater than just an army of the undead. According to the growly voice in the background, some sort of twisted mad man has created “more than just a new kind of soldier.”
“I have created the Devil himself,” the voice promises just as the video begins flashing images of zombie foes relentlessly chasing their target. That, of course, would be you. While there wasn’t much additional information provided about the zombies game mode, WWII Nazi Zombies has come out the gate with a strong first impression and a haunting set of images that are sure to leave Call of Duty fans thirsty for more.
Players will be able to embark on this new chilling journey and face the Nazi army of the dead on November 3.
