Zombie Mode Details

Sledgehammer has released a teaser trailer for the Exo Zombies in Advanced Warfare. The mode has a new breed of zombies that will add horror.

The trailer gives us a back story to the entry of the zombies. A DNA bomb has been detonated by killing people and leaving more people mutated. The game will allow four role plays of  actors John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and Jon Bernthal.

These four are the members of the military corporation Atlas and they are not properly trained or prepared for such a zombie outburst.

Some of the zombies will have the exoskeleton and exojump features. A closer look at the zombies will also see different categories, this is noticeable when one observes their eyes, there are zombies with green eyes, yellow eyes and red eyes.

YouTuber Ali-A analyses the teaser trailer and says that in one of the frames there is a small map layout and it does not look like anything that has appeared before.

Exo Zombies will be releasing with the Havoc DLC that will be rolling out in January 2015. Players can buy it individually by paying $15.

Previous zombie mode in Activision games has included actors like Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano and Michael Madsen.
