Today’s reveal of Call of Duty®: Vanguard Zombies is just the beginning. Developed by Treyarch, “Der Anfang” marks the opening of a new chapter in the Dark Aether story that began with Black Ops Cold War Zombies. Take a look behind the scenes at everything revealed today with members of the Treyarch dev team:
Taking place in 1944, Vanguard Zombies shifts the focus of the Dark Aether story to the disturbing occult activities carried out by the Third Reich during WWII. This is a completely new tonal direction for Call of Duty Zombies, and one that offers plenty of opportunities for new gameplay and storytelling experiences in Vanguard.
AN ALL-NEW ZOMBIES EXPERIENCE
The gameplay of “Der Anfang” blends fan-favorite Zombies elements with fast-paced, objective-based action, ensuring there’s never a dull moment as you and your fellow Special Forces operatives fight to survive the undead. From the war-torn battlements of Stalingrad to the classic setting of Shi No Numa in Japan, your squad will face the undead threat on every front.
Get a deeper look in the official Gameplay Reveal Trailer:
Players will also be introduced to a brand-new cast of Zombies characters, including the sinister Oberführer Von List, demonologist Gabriel Krafft, and several Dark Aether entities that have entered into a pact with humans to achieve their own mysterious goals.
