Modern Warfare III Zombies – What You Need To Know

Following the worldwide announcement of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III yesterday (August 17), Activision has outlined what fans can hope for from an all-new zombies mode, teasing a PvE (player versus enemy) experience “against some of the biggest enemies in Call of Duty history.”

“For the first time, team up with other squads to survive and fight massive hordes of the undead in the largest Call of Duty Zombies map ever,” a Call of Duty blog post explains. Modern Warfare Zombies, otherwise abbreviated as MWZ, was designed by Treyarch, best known for their work on the Black Ops sub-series, who banded alongside Sledgehammer Games to bring this latest version to life. In a recent blog post, Activision teased the next MWZ would be “the largest Zombies offering to date.”

MWZ delivers “an involved and unearthly Dark Aether Zombies story” and takes place within the Modern Warfare universe. Players can partake in “missions across different regions that escalate in difficulty, with core Zombies features and a cavalcade of secrets to discover.”

In the lead-up to yesterday’s reveal, a Zombies Mode had been foreshadowed in the form of cryptic SMS text messages, which proved that Zombies would be making a comeback. As shared in a clip by CharlieIntel, a phone user would be sent a zombie soundbite after texting the ‘Z’ word to a phone number.

The retelling of the original Modern Warfare 3 is a collaboration between Sledgehammer Games and Infinity Ward. Sledgehammer’s previous efforts include Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the 2019 reboot of Modern WarfareWWII, and Advanced Warfare, from 2014.
