The much-loved zombie multiplayer mode is making a return in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The catch: it’s not in the main game as an added feature like it was in previous versions of Call of Duty. If you want zombies in Advanced Warfare, then you need to buy the Season Pass.
The Season Pass, which is priced at a ridiculous $49.99 (more than R500, or almost the price of Advanced Warfare to begin with) will include four map packs, with the first pack being made available on Xbox One in January 2015. Other platforms will have to wait longer.
Somewhere in the mix of these numerous multiplayer map packs will be the addition of a Zombie mode. The news hit thanks to an email from game retail giant GameStop. “This just in,” the email reads, “Zombies are back as part of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare season pass! Stop by any GameStop to pick up one of the most anticipated games to launch this year, along with 4-multiplayer map packs, Atlas Gorge, and yes – ZOBMIES [sic].”
Further details about this zombie mode are scarce. Now that GameStop has let the cat out of the bag, you can expect an official Activision press release in the next few days.
Advanced Warfare hits shelves tomorrow, 04 November. Digital versions of the Day Zero edition are available now on Xbox One.
