Call of the Dead: Zombie of the Week

Posted by Grey Friday, May 6, 2011

Buffy, Freddy Kreuger, Machete, and The Walking Dead's Merle Dixon allied to take on a horde of zombies led by legendary zombie film director George Romero? Sold.

Last Tuesday marked the release of "Escalation", the second DLC map pack for Activison and Treyarch's monster hit, Call of Duty: Black Ops. While consisting four new multiplayer maps named "Zoo", "Hotel", "Convoy", and "Stockpile", the DLC pack also included a new Zombie Mode map known as "Call of the Dead", in what has been perceived by many as an extraordinary fan service for the Zombie film lovers.

Promising "an exciting new zombie experience", Call of the Dead is a star-studded affair featuring Zombie film legend, director George Romero as himself in the episode, working on a zombie film starring Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy), Robert Englund (Freddy Kreuger), Danny Trejo (Machete) and Michael Rooker (Merle Dixon in TV's The Walking Dead). Naturally, an actual zombie apocalypse happened and it's up to the unlikely quartet to take on the horde of undead led by Romero himself.

Here's the Grindhouse-inspired trailer of the episode.

For more of the gloriously undead madness, check out the below clip from Kotaku, featuring the game's opening and a batshit insane monologue by Romero himself.

Here's a better look at the gameplay sequences from the game.

Set on a ship rather than the usual war-zone against Nazi zombies, the episode has been made available on May 3rd for the Xbox 360 and later on the PlayStation 3 and PC. Hit the jump to check out screenshots from the game.
