Not too long ago, Sledgehammer Games promised that the first official trailer for Call of Duty: WWII‘s Nazi Zombies mode would be showcased at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Well, that was yesterday and the developer held true to that promise in spectacular fashion, treating us to one of the creepiest Zombies mode trailers we’ve ever seen.
Call of Duty‘s Zombies mode took a turn for the silly in recent months with raving and groovy kung-fu zombies, and while those are pretty damn fun, we can’t help but miss the slightly less ridiculous tone of the first few maps. Luckily, it seems like COD: WWII‘s offering is going back to its horrifying roots.
“Players will embark on a chilling and mysterious journey through a snowy Bavarian village in Mittelburg, Germany, as they attempt to recover priceless works of art stolen by the Axis powers in World War II,” explains the video’s description. “This village holds a shadowy secret key to an unimaginable and monstrous power. Nothing is as it seems in this zombies horror, as a dark and sinister plot unfolds to unleash an invincible Nazi army of the dead.”
Call of Duty: WWII will be shambling onto PC, PS4, and XBO on 3 November.
