by on April 27, 2011

On top of the regular maps included in the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops – Escalation map pack which Activision showed off a couple of weeks ago, there will be a new Zombie mode map thrown in. entitled Call of the Dead, the map “inspired by” the films of George A. Romero, and will feature a cameo from the king of Zombie flicks himself. Set on a stranded freighter in Siberia,players must escape the hordes of the undead. Alongside Romero, the mode will also feature a team of four famous film stars as the group of survivors for this Zombie outbreak.

The game features playable characters modelled on Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Robert Englund (Nightmare on Elm Street), Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead, Mallrats), and Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn). The team must battle wave after wave of Soviet Zombies.

“Our latest zombie creation, Call of the Dead, is unreal!” says Mark Lamia, Studio Head of Treyarch. “We set out to create an exciting new zombie experience for fans of the genre that takes Zombies to an insane new level. This is Treyarch’s tribute to the legendary George Romero, who truly defined the zombie genre and whose incredible work has been such an inspiration to our team,” says Dave Anthony, Call of Duty: Black Ops Director. “It was an absolute honour to work with such an amazing and talented cast whose passion and energy brought their characters instantly to life. Fans are going to love this.”
