KEY POINTS

  • The ever-popular Zombie mode was teased during the multiplayer reveal of "Cold War"
  • CoD insider Tom Henderson said the mode will take place in Nacht der Untoten
  • Zombie mode will feature Russian and Nazi zombies, WW2 weapons and a "new crew"

The fan-favorite Zombie mode of “Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War” was teased during the game’s multiplayer reveal with Treyarch keeping its promise to bring the dead back to life.

Activision’s “Black Ops Cold War” came as a sign of good things to come, especially now that next-generation consoles are poised to carry the title after it will be officially released on November 13. Among other things, the game’s Zombie mode has always captured the interest of hardcore CoD gamers because shooting hordes of the undead is as close to relaxing as it gets.

The clip was brief – around 11 seconds short – but it was enough to give fans a scare and a glimpse of what they could expect next month. A player was seen making their way through a corridor filled with graffiti armed only with a pistol and a flashlight. The camera pans down and showed a large horde of zombies. As the player tries to move away, another zombie appeared with the classic downward slash.

Following the teaser, “Call of Duty” insider Tom Henderson took to Twitter and provided some “specific details” about Zombie mode. Game Rant said Henderson confirmed that another fan-favorite – “World at War”’s Nacht der Untoten map – will be making its return in “Cold War” after the Russians reused the site for their nuclear program.

The leaker also pointed out that there will be Russian and Nazi zombies, a new crew and World War 2-era weapons. Players will be limited to a torch to illuminate the rather dark and creepy expanse until they can turn on the power.

Another fact about Zombie mode is that it will also be “directly linked” to “Warzone.” Game Rant said in a separate article that Treyarch claimed that the arrival of “Cold War” would signal the next “evolution” of “Warzone.” This will come in a form of a crossover since data miners have found evidence that the battle royale will get its zombie treatment either in the main game mode or some sort of a limited-time event just in time for Halloween.

“Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War” will be released on November 13 for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will also be launched on the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
