We’re getting a first look at Zombies mode in the upcoming Call of Duty: Vanguard tomorrow. The timing of the reveal is a little weird, however, because it’s exactly the same as the Battlefield 2042 Hazard Zone premiere.
Could be a coincidence, but it’s probably intentional. The Vanguard Zombies co-op mode will be revealed Thursday at 8am PT, 11am ET, 4pm UK. This will likely take place on Twitch, though the Tweet announcing the news didn’t specify.
Zombies is always a major component of every Call of Duty release, but it’s a little more important this year because it’s being produced by Treyarch, who’s generally the favourite team for Zombies fans.
The Vanguard Zombies story is a prequel to the Black Ops Cold War one, set in the same Dark Aether world. This is a first for Call of Duty, so it’s at least interesting in a narrative sense.
Beyond that, it’s not really clear what will be shown tomorrow, though we do hope it’s a lot of gameplay.
Zombies + Dark Aether + Demons!? 🤘#Vanguard is bringing one of your favorite modes with a sinister twist.
