The zombie experience comes to the Modern Warfare universe, with a team of multinational operators helping the members of Task Force 141 against the enormous hordes of the undead, caused by a second major enemy threat.
Watch the trailer and delve into the story of this massive open-world experience, launching alongside Modern Warfare III on November 10. “Looks like we have our weapon.”
For the first time in Call of Duty history, zombies come to the Modern Warfare universe in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III. Developed by Treyarch in collaboration with Sledgehammer Games, Modern Warfare Zombies is an iconic co-op experience that challenges players to team up with other squads to survive and fight massive hordes of the undead on the largest Call of Duty Zombies map in the world. the history.
Watch the trailer (below) and read on to find out what happens as all hell breaks loose:
The scene begins with a squad of men in military attire, about to carry out a night raid on an unknown location. A familiar voice calls for support to distract the local police, while the military unit advances to force the back door of a hotel building. Inside, they quickly plant an explosive and open a hole in the wall, which reveals stairs leading to their underground destination. What they find in that room changes the nature of the threat in an instant.
Around a table there are four very decomposed bodies, almost unrecognizable. In the center of the table is a strange device that opens to reveal two vials filled with an active substance. One of the assailants picks one up and removes his mask to inspect it better, revealing that he is none other than Viktor Zakhaev, the ultra-nationalist arms dealer and enemy of Task Force 141. He seems surprised and pleased to have found what he equipped her with. Looking For.
The squad puts the two vials in a protected container and leaves, but finds that the local security forces have raised the alarm and the military police have sent reinforcements. The firefight that follows is explosive and bloody, and Zakhaev’s forces are seriously outnumbered. As the melee continues, all but one of Zakhaev’s men are eliminated. Under fire and in a desperate situation, he resorts to throwing one of his vials at his attackers before retreating to his armored vehicle. The container shatters on the ground and, almost instantly, a cloying, purple fog spreads rapidly through the streets, suffocating the police forces and quickly transforming both the living and the fallen into bloodthirsty zombies.
Safe in the confines of their vehicle, Zakhaev and his squadmate witness the transformation firsthand, as one of their downed men screams and writhes, his eyes flashing red before attacking the nearest survivor. Far from being afraid, Zakhaev smiles; This weapon is unlike any other he could have conceived.
after the disaster
Following the events on the ground, a helicopter descends over the outbreak zone while SSO Kate Laswell and Sergeant Johnny “Soap” MacTavish brief an unseen operator on the mission in question, codenamed Operation Deadbolt. Accompanying the team is Captain Sergei Ravenov, an operator and mission specialist with experience in these types of raids. On the ground they are directed by a certain SSO Greene. The group has information that Zakhaev was planning something a few months ago, but they are not sure what exactly it was…
They are about to find out.
Exploring the lore
“Until we know what is happening, containment is the name of the game. Nobody comes in and nothing, I mean nothing, comes out.” –Soap
In this iteration of zombies, there are both living and undead enemies. The threat from the living comes in the form of Terminus Outcomes, a private military company hired by Zakhaev as muscle. Led by Jack Fletcher, the soldier who survives alongside Zakhaev at the end of the trailer, the PMC does not judge the motives or ethics of its clients. If the money is good, the job is done.
Veterans of the Zombie Dark Aether narrative will recognize the substance contained in the vials: Aetherium, now in a highly enriched state, derived from processing large quantities of the harvested crystalline form.
Operation Deadbolt, an emergency contingency plan put in place by the CIA, was created following the disaster witnessed by Requiem’s agents during the events of the Cold War.
SSO Laswell is tasked with preparing the plan, placing SSO Selma Greene on the ground as the de facto commander of the operation. When the team arrives at the Exclusion Zone with Soap and Ravenov, a few weeks have passed since the events shown in the first part of the trailer.
As a member of the team, your operator joins other multinational operators to counter the threat posed by the Exclusion Zone, all under the basic principles of Operation Deadbolt: “Nothing in, nothing out.”
