Call of Duty: Modern Warfare finally Reveals Zombies Mode in their recent statement on Twitter, and some of the detail of this mode has been revealed too
Infinity Ward was once exploring zombie mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, however, the idea never past the conceptual stage. Taking to Instagram, Infinity Ward artist Aaron Beck confirmed previous rumors claiming Infinity Ward was considering zombies mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. In a new post, Beck even revealed some of the concept art for the Zombies mode In the game, which he notes is from “early in production”.
The concept art doesn’t reveal much about the mode but does feature a Russian special forces soldier and his quadruped robots capturing some zombies via leashes and forcing them to march. It’s not knowing why the soldier is doing this, but it does create for some nice concept art.
“Finally got clearance to share more art from Modern Warfare”, said Beck in the aforementioned Instagram post. “So to begin here’s an unused concept from early in production. I was thinking it would be fun to play with the classic Call of Duty zombie gameplay, hinting here at some sort of Russian special forces soldier and his duo of quadruped robots, holding captive zombified soldiers by leashes around their necks”.
In the past, Infinity Ward said that they did not release a Zombies mode in the game in order to preserve it’s “authenticity” as a dark, gritty, and realistic take on what modern warfare looks like it. In its place, Infinity Ward released a Special Ops mode. And it sounds like this decision was made early, as Beck notes the mode never moved past the conceptual stage.
“We’re trying to create an authentic, realistic feeling world”, Infinity Ward said. “We don’t have the flexibility to do something like put zombies in the game. That would compromise the feeling of playing in a world that feels realistic and authentic and relative to today’s conflicts and things we face.”
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. it will come later this year and also be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X.
