It’s an exciting day for Call of Duty fans! Only a day before the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard, a cinematic trailer for the game’s Zombies mode has dropped that introduces our big new antagonistic Oberführer Wolfram Von List, and a new chapter to the ongoing Zombies storyline.
With the war going fairly terrible for the Nazi regieme, they’ve sent Wolfram Von List to collect artificats from across the globe to help win back the war. None seem to work, until Projekt Endstation (a zombie map previously featured in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War) bears fruit. Now the artifacts have erupted with power, and Wolfram Von List has made a pact with an occult entity that allows him to raise the dead. Causing havoc in the eastern front with his new powers, it’s up to us to stop him from winning the war with his new spooky powers.
At this point in the series’ history, Zombies has gained a reputation for exciting and often extensive narratives. With Call of Duty: Vanguard’s version of the beloved game mode, it looks like we’re getting a closer look at the more occult and magical aspect of the Zombies story, as opposed to the sci-fi horror angle we typically see.
