It’s gonna be “unpredictable”.
With the release date of Call of Duty WWII drawing closer, anticipation surrounding the game is ramping up. One of the things that has people most excited, though, is the famous zombies mode. Every iteration of the zombies mode, ever since its introduction back in 2008 with Treyarch’s World at War has been received extremely well, and the mode has become a fan favourite since then. It’s obviously exciting news then that Sledgehammer Games claim that the newest rendition of the mode is going to be the most intense one yet.
The game’s creative director Cameron Dayton and Activision’s senior director of development Jon Horsley recently spoke with Games Radar in an interview about the upcoming zombies mode, and they said that the unpredictability of the moment to moment gameplay in the mode will contribute to it feeling much more intense and scarier than ever before.
“I think this is, without a doubt, the scariest version of Zombies that you will have ever seen,” said Dayton. “It’s the perfect storm of technology, and studio talent, and an audience that I just think is ready for something that is going to scare the hell out of them. And I think it is something that I’m going to recommend, for first-time players, do not turn the lights off.”
“It’s unpredictable, you don’t know where you’re gonna be, or what way you’re gonna be, and where your friends are,” Horsley added. “And so we had to make sure the experience was compatible with that. And it’s really interesting, we have the characters themselves – their vocalizations reflect their level of fear. So you hear them getting scared, you’re scared, your friends get scared. It’s infectious, I guess, fear’s infectious. I didn’t know that.”
Call of Duty: WWII launches in November for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more updates on the game.
