Dropped on a mysterious, ice-covered Siberian island, Call of the Dead has players controlling a “dream-team” of zombie hunters as they fight to survive the marching undead onslaught. It also stars George Romero.
The Escalation map pack will harbor the Call of the Dead zombie mode, which features playable versions of famed actors from popular horror movies. In addition, the king of zombie movie directors, George Romero, will be making a “undead” cameo in the expansion. According to Kotaku, Call of the Dead will begin with players stranded on a shipload of the undead in Siberia.
“Our latest zombie creation, Call of the Dead, is unreal,” said Treyarch head Mark Lamia, who revealed the developers expectations. “We set out to create an exciting new zombie experience for fans of the genre that takes Zombies to an insane new level.”
