Here's a superb first look at Call of Duty: WWII's Nazi Zombies


'I have created the devil himself'

When word broke that this year's Call of Duty would be set during World War II, everyone knew what that meant for Zombies mode. The wave-after-wave horde mode is such a staple of Call of Duty that Activision doesn't dare cut it. And, the setting is ripe for those zombies to also be Nazis. They're twice as evil so you don't have to feel bad about killing them a second time.

Today, Activision released the first official trailer for WWII's Nazi Zombies, and goddamn it looks fantastic. The trailer is light on shooting and heavy on Frankenstein's evil laboratory vibes. As easy as it'd be to take a campy approach to zombies that are also Nazis, developer Sledgehammer seems to have something that's grimdark and serious.

The plot of Nazi Zombies was outlined in a press release that Activision attached to the video:

Players will embark on a chilling, dark and mysterious journey through Mittelburg, a snowy Bavarian village in Germany, as they attempt to recover priceless works of art stolen by the Axis powers in World War II. This village holds a secret key to an unimaginable and monstrous power, so visitors must be on their toes and beware of the twisted and occult horrors that guard these treasures.

We're killin' Zombie Hitler, aren't we? Yeah, we're killin' Zombie Hitler.
