Name of Obligation’s Halloween occasion has a Zombie royale and horror crossovers
Activision at present dropped the trailer for its Name of Obligation Halloween occasion: The Haunting of Verdansk. We’re getting just a few new recreation modes, a bunch of horror themed packs, and rewards, each in Trendy Warfare and Warzone.
Warzone gamers will get to expertise Verdansk at evening, and it’ll come with “various Halloween-themed frights” — and I’d be content material with that, to be sincere. However Trendy Warfare‘s also getting a fright-themed coat of paint. My favorite new addition is that, if you get three kills in a single life, your operator’s head will flip right into a jack-o-lantern. Get ten kills, and it’ll gentle on hearth. MW additionally will get two new modes: Snipers Solely, which is simply what it seems like, and Onslaught-er, which entails discovering and seizing a Juggernaut swimsuit that spawns on the map and doing one thing with it — I think about I’ll discover out if/after I ever get that far.
CoD seems to be taking a leaf from Mortal Kombat‘s guide, together with some basic horror film villains to boost the roster: specifically, Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Bloodbath and Billy the Puppet from the Noticed collection. Each will get applicable skins and content material packs, as will a personality known as Dr. Karlov. I received’t fake it’s not darned spooky to see some acquainted faces within the trailer, and it seems Billy and Leatherface will each pop in Haunted Verdansk, if the above trailer is something to go by.
And naturally, there are zombies — it wouldn’t be a Name of Obligation spook-fest with out zombies. On this case, we’ll have Zombie BR, a limited-time mode by which lifeless gamers are resurrected as zombies, with potential to show human in the event that they slay sufficient of their fellow gamers. You possibly can’t wield weapons as a zombie, however you’ll be able to run, punch, and usually overwhelm with numbers, as zombies are wont to do.
The Haunting of Verdansk begins on October 20 and runs by means of November 3. Activision can even apparently drop some extra themed bundles throughout the occasion, together with one impressed by Dia de los Muertos.
