Sledgehammer Games has announced the Attack of the Undead event for Call of Duty: WWII, which is a MP and Zombies crossover event for the game. The event goes live with today’s new game update for Call of Duty: WWII and ends on June 26.
The event features new game modes, new MP map, new weapons, new gear, and more.
The event features the return of the fan favorite Infected mode – with a twist: those infected are actually Zombies, alongside the new Hordepoint mode and Relic of the Undead.
- Infected: This mode will make its Call of Duty: WWII debut during Attack of the Undead, so be prepared to keep your friends close and your recently turned undead friends as far away from you as possible.
- Hordepoint: Hardpoint with an undead twist! Capture the Hardpoints with your teammates, then be prepared to defend them from your enemies as well as Nazi zombie attacks!
- Relic of the Undead: In this game mode you must hold onto a Nazi zombie head for as long as possible to earn points. Think of this game as Gridiron without any goals, or a deadly version of keep-away.
In addition, there is a variety of new weapons for Call of Duty: WWII with the Attack of the Undead event, including five ranged weapons and two melee weapons.
- PTRS 41 Sniper
- Stringer LMG
- Fire Axe
- Claymore Sword
- Lever Action
The event also features a new map – Groesten Haus – as part of the event for a limited time.
Groesten Haus is where the tutorial for Zombies takes place and has now been transformed into an MP map.
Set near the Kyffhäuser Mountains, Groesten Haus is anything but a peaceful cabin in the woods. Close quarters fighting is plentiful inside the cabin, where there is little room to hide from enemies. This will also be the setting where three new Multiplayer modes featuring the undead will take place.
