All-Star Comic Con Panel, Hosted by Kinda Funny Games' Greg Miller

SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
An all-new, twisted take on Activision's Call of Duty zombies co-op
mode is here. Call of Duty®: WWII - Nazi Zombies, a
chilling, dark vision of undead horror, was revealed today at San Diego
Comic Con alongside members of its all-star cast of characters, which in
full includes David Tennant, Elodie Yung, Katheryn Winnick, Udo Kier and
Ving Rhames. Launching on November 3 as part of Call of Duty: WWII,
the Nazi Zombies cooperative mode delivers a sinister original
story from Sledgehammer Games, delivering a new definition of terror to Call
of Duty zombies.
"With Nazi Zombies, we're creating a frightening world full of
terrifying characters and events that will make you jump and look over
your shoulder. There's an incredible amount of myth and lore, which our
team has poured through in our development," said Glen Schofield, Studio
Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games. "This is unlike anything
before, we're taking players to some very dark, grim places in Nazi
Zombies. This is one hell of a horror experience."
Michael Condrey, Studio Head and Co-Founder of Sledgehammer Games added,
"We couldn't be more excited to showcase our reveal of Nazi Zombies
here at San Diego Comic Con. It's been great to return to creating a
horror-based experience, and with Call of Duty, head back to the Nazi
Zombies roots. The team at the studio is proud of the opportunity to
deliver something special for the fans."
Call of Duty: WWII - Nazi Zombies is a terrifying,
new zombies cooperative experience that transports players into a
labyrinth of chilling occult Nazi zombies experiments, and monstrous
creations set mythically in World War II. The story unfolds as an
international team peels back the vile layers of a malevolent plot
masterminded by the Axis powers to harness unimaginable occult forces
and create an invincible undead army. Featuring voices and likenesses,
the global cast features David Tennant (Doctor Who, Broadchurch), Elodie
Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Daredevil), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings, The
Dark Tower), Udo Kier (Blade, Melancholia) and Ving Rhames (Pulp
Fiction, Mission Impossible - Rogue Nation).
The Nazi Zombies San Diego Comic Con panel was hosted by YouTube
personality Greg Miller, co-founder of Kinda Funny Games and featured
the cast along with developers from the Sledgehammer Games team. Panel
attendees got a first look at all new zombies footage, plus a behind the
scenes sneak peek at the making of the new cooperative mode.
