Activision and Sledgehammer Games have finally released the official trailer for Call of Duty: WWII's Nazi Zombies mode, which will take gamers back to the classic World War II era of zombie survival, and it's one wild ride.
The trailer, which aired during the San Diego Comic-Con, starts with a look at the map for the mode, which takes place in a snowy Bavarian village set within the northern part of Mittelburg, Germany. You certainly wouldn't be able to tell that it was Mittelburg just by looking at the way the Call of Duty: WWII trailer starts off, which has some seriously horror-themed Gothic tones to it.
The camera pans down, giving gamers a look at the advanced lighting system at play, where shadows dance across the stoney brick edges of the old German homes, and the snow-topped streets hide the ridged cobblestones underneath.
The trailer finally begins to give us glimpses of the old familiar zombie themes the Call of Duty games are known for, with a venture into a bloody sewer system with a frightening looking cage resting in the center. It doesn't end there, though.
The camera continues its creepy flyby mission into an even more stomach-turning room where some obviously twisted science experiments were taking place. We see trails of blood where bodies were dragged across the floor, and various operating tables where unspeakable horrors were committed.
After nearly 30 seconds of flyby footage of the new level, we finally get a voiceover explaining that he's seen the Fuhrer's version of the future. He talks about the death of the old world and the drums of the new world.
In between the short speech we get tons of clips of some dark tunnels filled with zombies, and a look at a Nazi zombie looking pretty decrepit. It's obviously not the bright and goofy take on the mode that we've been receiving in the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare DLC nor is it like Treyarch's anthology of zombie titles that started in Call of Duty: World at War and wrapped up in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
The voiceover then explains that he's done more than just create a new soldier; he's created the devil himself.
In between this time we get to see some of the new zombie types players will be facing off against, some of whom have no arms, others who are completely missing all of their skin and flesh. It's safe to say that Call of Duty: WWII's zombies are most certainly more horror-themed compared to the other games.
The clip rounds out by teasing a boss character of sort -- the devil that the Doctor refers to, which seems strikingly similar to something out of Killing Floor 2 -- and then reminds gamers that the newest Call of Duty will drop for Xbox One, PS4 and PC on November 3rd later this year. They also remind gamers that you can sign up for the beta by pre-ordering the game from the official website.
