Who doesn’t enjoy a good zombie apocalypse in their shooter game? Especially when it has been refined over the years and has proven to be an extremely popular mode executed to perfection. Because shooting zombies is fun, even when we’re not in a horror game. And Treyarch knows this very well because, without beating around the bush, the zombies mode has been revealed for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Presented with a cinematic trailer, the biggest change compared to previous zombie modes is that this time it will feature an open world. As reported in a blog post on Call of Duty’s website, this will allow squads to team up with other squads to take on the zombies, who are more numerous than ever this time around. Additionally, the missions themselves will be significantly more complex.
With different regions that increase in difficulty, this mode aims to bring a different vibe to the Modern Warfare 3 gaming experience and to the franchise’s other zombie modes as well. Therefore, it will be an open-world PvE survival and objective extraction mode with special missions.
Adding to what we’ve already discussed about teaming up with other squads, they have all the ingredients to make this the most epic and wild zombie mode experience in history. Especially because they’ve indicated that we can expect unique elements, challenges, and cinematics that will enhance the most important aspects of the story.
Modern Warfare 3 will be released on November 10, 2023, for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. The game is being developed by Sledgehammer in collaboration with Infinity Ward, with Treyarch handling the zombie mode.
