Activision held a panel on the first day of San Diego Comic-Con to reveal the anticipated “Nazi Zombies mode” for the upcoming game, Call of Duty: WWII. This mode will eschew the nostalgic and sometimes cheeky vibe of the last few zombie modes in favor of actual fear and horror. Players should expect several different types of zombies, ranging from shambling to running. From slightly gory to zombies with missing appendages. In addition, I expect to see at least a few “uber soldat” (super soldier) zombies. According to actor Udo Kier, who plays an evil Nazi doctor, “I’ve created the devil himself.”
Speaking of which, the Nazi Zombies mode has a cast of top-notch talent, including David Tennant (Doctor Who), Elodie Yung (Netflix’s Daredevil), Ving Rames (Pulp Fiction), and Katheryn Winnick (Vikings). They were on hand at the Comic-Con panel to offer up their opinions on both the new mode and their voice-acting experience.
Players will embark on a chilling, dark and mysterious journey through Mittleburg, a snowy Bavarian village in Germany, which holds a secret key to an unimaginable and monstrous power. This coop mode supports up to four players, and each one is distinctly different. They range from engineers to art thiefs, and their goal is to recover stolen art and save it from being destroyed by the Nazis. Call of Duty: WWII Nazi Zombies mode comes out in November on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
