Zombies have broken out of Call of Duty: WWII‘s Nazi Zombies survival mode and have invaded its competitive multiplayer in the shooter’s latest community event.
WWII‘s Attack of the Undead community event introduces three new multiplayer modes, all of which involve zombies. At least one of the modes, Hordepoint, will have AI-controlled zombies, while another, Infected, will have them exclusively controlled by players. AI-controlled zombies will behave as they do in the Nazi Zombies mode, attacking any living being they see, so both teams will have to focus on keeping the undead at bay while also battling each other and completing objectives.
The three new multiplayer modes can be found below, with each going live on a different date over the course of the event.
- Infected (May 29th) – This classic game mode is very much what gamers expect. As each player falls, they are turned into one of the undead, and the winner is whoever survives the onslaught of their recently-turned allies the longest.
- Hordepoint (June 5th) – As it sounds, this mode is essentially Hardpoint with an undead twist. Capture points randomly spawn around the map, and teams must hold them while fending off the enemy team and the undead alike.
- Relic of the Undead (June 12th) – This literal interpretation of Kill the Carrier has players pick up and hold a cursed relic for as long as possible to earn their team points.
The three modes will be playable on select multiplayer maps, including a new limited-time map, Groesten Haus, which takes players to the cabin that kicks off the game’s Nazi Zombies survival mode. To aid in our survival, a new cache of free weapons has been dropped into the game, including the Type 2 submachine gun, the Blunderbuss shotgun, the Claymore melee weapon, and more.
Players can face the zombie hordes in style with new undead-themed gear options, including the new face paint customization category for soldiers. New themed collections, contracts, and orders are also live during the event, so players will want to consistently check in with Major Howard and Captain Butcher to see what event goodies they have on offer.
Finally, a community challenge has launched in tandem with the event, with five tiers full of rewards for killing as many zombies as possible across any competitive or cooperative mode. The third-tier reward will cause the Nazi Zombies mode’s Tesla Weapon to drop randomly in event multiplayer matches, to give an idea of the rewards in store.
All of this content can be checked out in the event’s trailer below.
WWII‘s Attack of the Undead event is live right now, and will run until June 26th.
