Sledgehammer Games hosted a panel today at San Diego Comic Con 2017 to reveal Call of Duty: WWII’s Nazi Zombies mode. The official reveal trailer is viewable here.

Here’s a round up of the details they announced during their panel:

  • Official name of map not being announced today.
  • Perks and Mystery Box will return.
  • WWII Zombies is not connected to another other Call of Duty Zombies game.
  • “Hardest easter egg hunt you’ve ever been on.” Marie and Klaus’s father was toy-maker. Lots of traps and more.
  • The back story for the mode is based on a real story of finding stolen art during World War II. Men and women risked their lives to save works of art.
  • Marie Fisher became a spy for the US. Ended up having to look for her brother Klaus. Their father was a weapons maker.
  • The Doctor created the devil’s himself.
  • Each character has a rich backstory to how they got in their situation.

In addition, Activision has shared more details on the mission that players will embark on in the WWII Zombies mode.

  • Players will embark on a chilling, dark and mysterious journey through Mittelburg, a snowy Bavarian village in Germany, as they attempt to recover priceless works of art stolen by the Axis powers in World War II. This village holds a secret key to an unimaginable and monstrous power, so visitors must be on their toes and beware of the twisted and occult horrors that guard these treasures.

Alongside this, here’s the bio of the each of the characters in WWII Zombies:

  • Jefferson Potts (played by Ving Rhames) – Strong, assured, and educated, Jefferson has both the military and academic prowess the MFAA need.
  • Olivia Durant (played by Elodie Yung) – A former art historian of the Musée du Louvre, and weapons expert, she is an extremely savvy and capable member of the team.
  • Drostan Hynd (played by David Tennant) – A former art thief, this brash and rough character was given a choice: go to jail, or help reclaim stolen art.
  • Marie Fischer (played by Katheryn Winnick) – A brilliant engineer and tactician, Marie attempts to help salvage stolen treasures and rescue her brother, Klaus.

All of these characters are considered international art experts.
“Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives Section (MFAA) on their dangerous pursuit to reclaim some of the world’s most important works of art from the hands of the Axis powers.”

  • >Perks and Mystery Box will return
    So pretty much this confirms that this is probably going to follow Treyarch’s formula? Fair enough I suppose

    • I hope it’s not round based, want them to spice it up a bit and take more risks

      • BradyAlucard

        I’d like that change. Depends on how it’s executed though.

      • Seeing how perks and mystery box are confirmed I think its safe to assume this gamemode will be round based. Which I think is pretty disappointing. I was hoping they would take more risks and make this different in some way. But ill be fine with this mode if they live up to the horror aspect.

        • Thomas the Tankswag

          It could be time based with zombies getting stronger every couple of minutes and continously coming in.

      • The Vision

        Extinction wasnt round based. Look how that turned out. Honestly in my opinion it should have been

    • At least they’re not calling them some crap name such as exo abilities/abilities or whatever

      • Michael Romo


  • Gamerazor247

    I think the term “Easter egg” is getting lost within this series, lmao…

    • Yeah it’s more of just a super complicated quest than a EE.

      • RdJokr

        Well it started out as easter eggs anyway. The term just stuck, but everyone knows it’s story quests.

    • Patriciakking

      our classmate’s mom makes $80 per hour from home and she has been laid off for six months and the previous month her profit was $13155 just working on the internet for two hours a day…➤ see➤ this

  • Well the hard Easter egg comment is my first negative thought on the game so far. Was hoping we would have a zombies mode that wasn’t all about cryptic, difficult Easter eggs for a change

    • Sentinel

      Don’t be a bitch, mate.

      • Still completely psyched for the game and zombies looks epic, I just cba with the easter eggs, unless they’re solo-able.

        • Sentinel

          Don’t dwell on how Treyarch implement “Easter eggs” in their game. Sledgehammer has the spotlight now. So far you we can all agree that some horror is going on in the zombie mode.

    • Michael Romo

      That’s the best part though. Finding these EEs is fun

  • Kyle Johnston

    Its called endless rounds of zombies for a reason

  • Emre

    Lets hope for 2 zombie maps in the base game.


    an art historian in france played by an asian woman. lol?

    • RdJokr

      Elodie Yung’s half-French.

      • DEMOLITION12

        and half not french. does not belong

  • Alex Fraser

    arent people bored of zombies yet?? this got old in the second game it was in

    • Jon

      for you maybe

  • I can’t find Mittelburg, Germany anywhere. All I get is a castle called the Mittelburg Castle and Mittelberg, Austria. Is this supposed to be a real-life location?
