Call of Duty: WWII Zombies Mode Gets Brand New Details
Brand new details have emerged regarding Call of Duty: WWII’s Zombie mode, including where the mode will take place, what we can expect from the game mode itself, and much more. In an interview at the PlayStation Blog, Jon Horsley – the senior director at Sledgehammer Games and lead on WWII’s Zombie mode – was asked a bunch on the upcoming zombie mode, and gave us a ton of great details on what to expect.
The mode is still primarily focused on four-player cooperative combat against waves of zombies. Horsley claimed that the game mode in Call of Duty: WWII is “grounded in a gritty, horrifying setting based on World War II, and we take things to terrifying new levels.” According to Horsley, the goal of the mode was to make this iteration “the most terrifying Zombies experience we’ve ever created.”
Horsley revealed that Zombies will take place in a Bavarian village in Germany sometime during the tail end of World War II. “ Players will be transported to a horrifying corner of the town, where bloody sewers, evil laboratories, and ancient tombs will reveal their dark secrets. It’s an immersive thrill ride, and developing the canvas and the environment the player is immersed in was a fun challenge for our team.”
The Zombies mode in Call of Duty have become known for having a relatively deep and complex story, and this one seems to be no different. According to Horsley, the Third Reich has built an army of the dead in a last-ditch attempt to salvage the war. In that sense, the zombies manage to save some of the discipline of their former selves. Horsley teased various zombie types that will make their appearances, including flaming and running zombies.
The perk system – or something close to it – seems to be appearing once again, as Horsley said that they will provide “rewards and upgrades”, some of which are permanent, throughout the mode. Make sure to check out the rest of the interview over at the PlayStation Blog.
Call of Duty: WWII releases on November 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
