It didn’t really make a lot of sense initially, taking the serious war vibe of the Call of Duty series and adding zombies to the mix.

But once everybody got to immerse themselves in it, it made sense!

It all began with the WWII-set Call of Duty: World at War back in 2008, whereby Nazi zombies were an Easter egg at the end of the game’s campaign. It proved so popular that it’s been an evolving, ongoing thing. For some, it’s now the best part of the Call of Duty series.

The video below features Jason Blundell, senior Zombies executive producer, giving us a quick history, plus a look at the three undead adventures in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The game includes two new zombie experiences – the gladiator-styled IX and the Titanic adventures of Voyage of Despair – plus the continuing Aether story.

Zombies will get in your head when Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launches this Thursday, October 12, on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
