At a remote facility in the Alaskan wilderness, the shadowy Nightfall Program has been researching the origins of the “Alien” threat. When the scientists lose control, a small team of elite soldiers must retrieve the intel, exterminate hordes of hostile creatures, and survive a three-story tall terror unlike anything they’ve faced before. Get ready for Episode 1: Nightfall, the first installment in Extinction’s four-part episodic narrative!

    Good lord! Now THAT is a trailer! Looks like there’s gonna be some sort of cutscene to go with it. Maybe we have to save those two researchers? Gaah TUESDAY COME NOW

    • Grigori

      Finally a real story! I’m still confused who that “Ghost” guy is..

      • HenryDF

        I think it’s teasing the possible character customisation that they’re gonna be adding.

        • Grigori

          But with custom characters you don’t have some real characters with a story.. :/

          • Shardlotte

            I think it’s a good thing. IW wants to focus on the aliens themselves, their backstory. I think having too many different things going on at once can get pretty confusing and downright awful later on. Look at Zombies, for example. Everything is just a mess because every map answers little yet asks a lot. With this, we’re just regular soldiers, and I like that. I feel like people want this to be Zombies so badly that they can’t see that this game mode is not and will never be Zombies.

          • Grigori

            I understand, thanks

            Maybe you can’t customize their character (How they look, skin tone, etc) but you can customize their gear, like hats, outfits, etc. In that way, it’d be more realistic since they are part of the army or military, by the looks of things.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Oh, nice. By the looks of things, the story will be focused on the aliens and how they came to be, as well as destroying them. You just play as random soldiers. I can dig it, it’d be nice to have some character background, but I can see how this could work.

      • Well whoever they are, they were wearing Logans mask.

  • FeboooH

    This look really fucking cool (pardon my french)
    I love how it looks like a campaign (something I missed in zombies)
    Really looking forward to this!

    • Shardlotte

      Yeah, they’ve even referred to it as a campaign in some interviews, which is neat.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        Well, it did say there are 4 chapters.

        • 111AlaN111

          and that this chapter has 3 episodes

          • Grigori

            WRONG! 4 episodes, every dlc one episode.

          • 111AlaN111

            No, because in the trailer they say the 3part chapter.

          • 111AlaN111

            wrong, the 3 episodic chapter

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      On the contrary, I don’t want zombies to be like a campaign. I liked the small easter eggs in maps like Der Riese that made you piece together small bits and pieces, put them all together, and infer what the story was. It made you work to figure out what happened in the area, and it was fun trying to figure it out with some friends, looking for scraps of paper, reading them aloud, listening to quotes. I think a campaign sort of thing will suit Extinction good though.

  • Grigori

    Exciting!!!!

  • Batman

    Still have an ending so still boring

    • Shardlotte

      And you know this how?

    • Edwin Cortez

      Everything needs an ending…thats Something i hate about zombies, that almost all of the maps had no ending, except the last dlc.

      • noobsdontlie

        Actually Zombies never ended it just showed how it all began

        • 111AlaN111

          I think he refers to a cutscene at the end

  • Shardlotte

    Also, just noticed that they have “Alien” in quotes for the description. Hmm, maybe these aren’t aliens after all…

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      My guess is test subjects created in a secret lab as some secret government project (Not the lab in the trailer, probably a lab in Colorado), which then escaped. Another lab takes them in to examine the species to a lab in Alaska (The one in the trailer), not knowing about the aliens because it was top secret. They escaped again, then they started growing hives and reproducing, causing mass terror. Then the government sends a squad in to fix their screw up, not giving them any details on the “aliens” and how they came to be, just ordering them to destroy all of the hives so that they stop reproducing.

      • 111AlaN111

        The aliens will evolutionate until they become the “zombies” we see in BO1 and 2 and WaW

        • bob

          This is modern day, bo1 is in the 1900’s -_-

          • 111AlaN111

            time machines, duh

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          nope

          • 111AlaN111

            time machine

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            That just doesn’t make sense overall. Plus, IW and Treyarch wouldn’t cross story lines like that.

          • 111AlaN111

            then why with the LOL easteregg (look for it) there appear alien toys like the one in Nuketown in BO2? Maybe a human crossed with an alien and BOOM! Zombies

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            No.. No offense, but that theory sucks and has no evidence or anything to support it. The dolls barely match the ones on nuketown. Plus the aliens act nothing like zombies, and they act nothing like zombies. We know how the zombies started from the zombies storyline. Aliens has nothing to do with zombies. And like I said, IW and Treyarch are 2 different companies. IW created aliens because they can’t copy zombies and nothing they previously had competed with it.

          • 111AlaN111

            The alien dolls are identical. In Sovereing, theres a window where you see teddy of zombies. So they kinda help each other

          • 111AlaN111

            samantha was a human, and richtofen an alien, and they had babies, wich were humans but with alien eyes and sounds. Then richtofen wished to be human to be with samantha and a comet passed so rich became human but samantha loved aliens so she left him. Then samantha had a babie wich was maxis, and sam fell in love with maxis so richtofen wants to ruin their love

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Okay, now I do mean to be offensive. You’re retarded.

          • 111AlaN111

            🙁 You don’t have a heart
            The only thing I did wrong was falling in love with you. I hope you find someone better…. my friend

        • Mitch

          Yup. These Aliens in 2016 (I believe) evolve into these zombies in 1918. derpie hurp durpppppppp

          • 111AlaN111

            time machine DUH

      • Grigori

        The one in colorado was because of a meteor..

  • character customization will be on Extinction this update

  • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

    At least it’s something better than Spec Ops.

    • Ryumoau

      yeah i never really liked that mode, even in MW2.

  • Ryumoau

    nice trailer.

  • Lord Madara

    This gave me goosebumbs so thats how “I” know its gonna be good

  • The Telephone Pole

    Looks like more customization features like, snow themed armour and probably a new female head model. They should add more special weapons as well.

  • Pretty sweet trailer!

  • Chris Mason

    After watching this video, I remembered the people on this board who criticized IW’s Extinction mode. And I can’t help but grin.

  • I’d love to see a bonus DLC thrown in. The Modern Warfare Weapon Pack. a DLC which includes one weapon in each class from all 3 Modern Warfare games. It would include:
    AR: The G36C (MW3 variant) or M4A1 (MW2 variant)
    SMG: The P90 (The MW2 variant, it’s up for debate but I feel it fits the art style.)
    Sniper: The M40A3
    The WA2000 as a Marksman Rifle
    LMG: The AUG HBAR
    Shotgun: The M1014
    Handgun: The Desert Eagle (MW2 variant. Fixed Iron sights, and stats of CoD4’s variant.)
    7 weapons, all completely different from the stock weapons in game.

    Any thoughts anyone? Balancing issues? Integrated attachments?

    • spamtastic

      You really have nothing else to do than spamming the same stuff all over again? get a life.

  • Ih8hckr

    They really need to focus on patches to ban hackers as well can’t even play a good game of extinction without hackers.
