Developer Treyarch and publisher Activision shared a new trailer dedicated to the Zombies mode arriving with the upcoming shooter Call of Duty: Vanguard on November 5th. Zombies is a four-person co-op mode that expands on the Dark Aether story first experienced in Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War. It is set in the ruins of Stalingrad during World War II.
The Special Forces operatives are stranded in the snowy graveyard of Stalingrad with no backup and no means of communication. Antagonist Oberführer Wolfram Von List gained the power to raise the dead. What better field to create an army of undead than the mass graves of Stalingrad, a year following the Nazis’ worst defeat in one of the war’s most decisive battles?
The operatives have one slim hope in the form of help from unexpected sources. Professor Gabriel Krafft, a demonologist forced by Von List to uncover the five artifacts, sent out the initial distress call that got the operatives stuck there in the first place. The characters can also get special abilities from the four entities that oppose Kortifex the Deathless, a creature from Dark Aether that bonded with Von List.
