Activision and Sledgehammer Games‘ latest military shooter, Call of Duty: Vanguard, is on the precipice of its Nov. 5 launch day tomorrow, and to celebrate, the companies have dropped an epic cinematic trailer showcasing the story of their much-anticipated Zombies mode.
Feel free to take a gander at the freshly cut “Der Anfang” footage down below:
Opening with that distinctive jingle that tolls at the beginning of a wave, the new video pulls back the curtain on the nazi origin story of how the zombies came to be in Call of Duty: Vanguard.
On the brink of defeat, the nazis unleash a mysterious supernatural force that – you guessed it! – raise an army of undead soldiers that’ll need to be defeated. That ol’ chestnut!
For those unaware, the Zombies offshoot mode was first introduced back in 2008’s Call Of Duty: World At War and has proven to be an incredibly popular addition to the first-person shooter series. The mode pits players against endless, increasingly deadlier waves of undead hordes.
Not only has it gone on to become a mainstay in Activision’s beloved annual franchise, but it’s arguably one of the most well-liked modes in the entire series, which is no small feat, indeed.
