Infinity Ward will spill its guts about Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's zombies mode next week

The reveal goes down on August 16, one day before Gamescom officially gets underway.


Activision and Infinity Ward issued a tweet to announce that Infinite Warfare's zombies mode will be revealed next Tuesday, August 16 (via Charlie Intel).

"It’s almost time for the big premiere! Grab the popcorn and get ready to scream..." the tweet reads.

While previous zombie modes took place within the same universe as the campaigns of their respective Call of Duty games, Infinite Warfare's undead appear to be stalking the living in a disparate setting. Activision's mention of popcorn references a teaser image depicting a film reel and popcorn released earlier this year.

Activision and IW could be implying that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's zombies mode will play out as some sort of in-game movie that you'll play through, as if experiencing the struggle from a character's point of view.

All will be revealed next on the 16th, one day before Gamescom kicks off. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is still on track for a November release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
