After months of waiting, it’s finally here. Activision and Infinity Ward have released a gameplay trailer for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Zombies.
The reveal gave fans some a much-needed look into the game mode. For instance, gamers could see a bunch of new zombies in what looks like a retro theme-park circa the 1980s. A few protagonists were also introduced, complete with automatic weaponry and old-school clothes. And, of course, we can't over look the breakdancing...zombies? The trailer's VHS-aesthetic is also getting some buzzworthy conversation as fans are now dissecting the footage.
Of course, today’s reveal shouldn’t be all to surprising for fans. After all, the team behind Call of Duty has been teasing the zombie-tastic news for awhile now. On August 14th, the official Call of Duty Twitter posted an image which featured Infinite Warfare Zombies’ logo. The poster was uploaded alongside a message which told fans to get ready for “all the #IWZombies intel you can handle” at the annual Gamescom convention in Europe. And, just last night, the Call of Duty account replied to fan’s tweet, saying “Infinity War has created some really epic gameplay...get ready to get your mind blown.”
The Call of Duty Twitter has also teased there's more reveals for 'Zombies' to come. In fact, they recently tweeted the following message:
However, the poster teaser was just one of several promotions the team undertook. Most interestingly, the Call of Duty team tweeted a GIF of a mysterious box with the Infinite Warfare Zombies logo on it last week. The box had a timer on it which was set to countdown until today, and a message beneath the clock read, “Do not open until clock hits zero.”
Prior to today’s reveal, fans knew very little about Infinite Warfare Zombies except for that the new mode would be a totally different from its predecessors. And, what’s more, fans had only seen one brief teaser image of the mode that featured a blood-spattered film reel and pieces of popcorn.
If you're looking forward to more updates on Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, fans should be getting a look into the game's multiplayer mode at Call of Duty XP in September. So, for now, let's all just relish in this new gameplay footage Activision and Infinity Ward have gifted us.
