"Call of Duty: World War II" is the latest title released by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. Since the release of "Call of Duty: World at War," the franchise had included a special game mode known as "Zombies." The game mode became highly popular and had seen several comebacks to later titles like "Call of Duty: Black Ops," "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" and again in "Call of Duty: Black Ops III." The zombie mode received such a strong positive feedback and had gained a strong fan base that it had to be included in the latest entry to CoD series.

In CoD: WW 2, the zombies game mode had its original storyline set in an alternate history setting separating it from the campaign. The game mode takes place in the events of World War II, as the Third Reich undertakes a desperate move to turn the tide of the war by creating an army of undead soldiers. While the said mode is based on science-fiction and is a fictional take on the war, Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey states that the story of the mode is based on some "real events." Aside from what the fans loved from the zombie mode, game developers promised genuine scares and difficult secrets in a recent interview.


The zombies game mode has been known for carrying on the tradition of odd Easter Eggs within Call of Duty games.

"We think it will make it one of the hardest, secret-laden zombie games released," said John Horsley, the game's development director. The team behind the zombie game mode designed several layers of content within CoD: WW 2 that is devised for entertain and the amusement of players, ranging from the general easter-eggs to hard core level secrets to challenge players in completing the game.

Cameron Dayton, Sledgehammer's creative director, states "Once you open up that little cornucopia of dark mysteries, it presents an entirely deeper level of the Easter eggs, and they're all tied to the narrative."


WWII Nazi Zombies is a new take on the existing game mode. A dark and sinister plot unfolds while players attempt to stop the enemy's plan to unleash an invincible army of the dead.

The game takes players to a snowy Bavarian village in Mittelberg, Germany, as they embark on a mission to recover priceless works of art stolen by the Axis powers in World War II. The village holds a shadowy secret key that holds an unimaginable and monstrous power. The zombie mode takes on a new philosophy in horror where the scare factor comes from a familiar space and holds the element of realism that players can relate to. The new zombie mode promises a new experience for CoD fans.
