I don’t follow video games, except for the old consoles like Game Boy Advance and XBox. So, I really have no idea what Call of Duty is other than some sort of war or battle type shooting game. However, a new entry into the series – Call of Duty: Black Opts Escelation – will combine World War II style gaming with horror icons. Coming as a new, second “map pack,” the game will feature a zombie map dubbed Call of The Dead. I’m guessing map pack is a term used to describe a new arc of playable levels? The map takes place on a ship, and instead of fighting other soldiers…you fight zombies!
Are you wondering who the four playable characters are yet? Sarah Michelle Gellar (I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, The Grudge), Robert England (A Nightmare On Elm Street franchise), Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead), and Danny Trejo (Grindhouse) are your horror stars who will be shooting up zombies in the Call of The Dead map. Also, more importantly, George A Romero will appear in the video game, although I can’t confirm whether he will be a playable character or a boss/villain. Call of Duty: Black Ops Escelation – Call of The Dead will be released May 3, 2011 for XBOX 360. Click here to view the trailer for the game.
