Activision has officially confirmed weeks of rumors and speculation today that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Warzone will be adding zombies. The upcoming limited-time Halloween event, known as Zombie Royale, will be a part of the upcoming Haunting of Verdansk update that will release Tuesday, October 20th, just in time for spooky season.
The limited-time event will feature a night-time version of Verdansk where players will get to take on hordes of the undead along with a few other interesting changes. The most prominent change will be that instead of players being sent to the Gulag when they die, they will now respawn as zombies with supernatural abilities such as faster movement, higher jumping, more powerful melees, and thermal vision.
Other notable Halloween-themed changes will be happening with the standard Modern Warfare multiplayer. Among these, Gunfight will become Gunfright, and there will also be a Halloween Moshpit playlist. It appears that Activision and Infinity Ward are ramping up interest with less than a month to go until the release of Black Ops Cold War.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 13th.
