It appears the much loved Zombies mode is rearing its rotting head once more in Sledgehammer Games’ Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, although the co-operative horde mode will only be available to Season Pass holders. As it stands CoD: AW does come packing the Co-op Exo Survival mode against human enemies, and making your through every map and wave of enemies unlocks a bonus zombie wave, but Sledgehammer has far grander plans in store for the walking dead.
A press release issued by Gamestop looks to have spilled the beans, claiming that access to the Zombie mode along with 4 multiplayer maps and the exclusive Zombie Gorge map would be available as part of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s $50 Season Pass. Yep, $50, these season passes look to be getting out of control.
"Breaking News for Call of Duty Fans - Zombies are Back!” reads Gamestop’s email. "This just in, Zombies are back as part of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare season pass! Stop by any GameStop to pick up one of the most anticipated games to launch this year, along with 4-multiplayer map packs, Atlas Gorge, and yes - ZOMBIES.”
The Zombies mode is traditionally the domain of one of the two other Call of Duty studios, Treyarch, who worked of Call of Duty: World at War, Call of Duty: Blacks Ops, and its sequel Call of Duty: Black Ops II, so it’ll be interesting to see what Sledgehammer has up its sleeve for this one.
The Exo Suit survival mode that comes with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has you and up to three buddies blasting away at waves of human enemies in each of the game’s 13 main multiplayer maps. They're split into four different difficulty tiers and have players performing all sorts of different objectives such as defending locations or going out and collecting dog tags.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is out today on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Will you be forking out $50 for the Season Pass to get your hands on Call of Duty: AW’s Zombie mode? Or is it this a little too steep on top of an expensive retail title?
