Zombie mode is making its glorious return in Call of Duty: Vanguard, Activision announced Thursday.
“Zombies,” as it’s more commonly known, is one of the series most popular modes — and we’ve not seen it for several years. So its return in Call of Duty: Vanguard is a welcome surprise. After all, who doesn’t love grouping up with some friends to crack some undead skulls of the concrete? Nobody, that’s who.
Zombies in Call of Duty: Vanguard looks like it’ll be pretty similar to how it was in past entries in the series. At least, if the trailer is any indication, check it out for yourself below.
Your mission: Stop the undead army with new powers from the Dark Aether… 😈

There’ll be an extended gameplay reveal for the mode tomorrow for anyone that can’t wait to see more. Though Sledgehammer Games and Treyarch, co-developers of Call of Duty: Vanguard, did leave us with some interesting nuggets of information today. Chiefly among them that this will continue the Dark Aether storyline.
“Vanguard Zombies reveals that entities from the Dark Aether dimension had contact with humans going back centuries,” Treyarch said on Call of Duty’s blog. “We’ll get a better sense of what was happening in the Dark Aether before the events at Projekt Endstation changed everything.”
It’ll be interesting to see the full breakdown from Sledgehammer and Treyarch tomorrow. Yesterday, Activision announced its new Ricochet anti-cheat would be coming to Call of Duty: Vanguard as well. So at least we know none of those undead buggers will be cheating!
