Last month, Activision confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will feature a full-blown Zombies mode - a first in the history of the Modern Warfare series. We've not seen much of it in action yet, however a new cinematic trailer has delivered a little bit of a setup for this year's Zombies experience.

In the above intro, you can see some familiar faces unleash a bioweapon of sorts - one that raises the dead and turns anything in its path into flesh-eating monsters. Lovely! Anyway, here's how Activision describes the new mode:

"The Zombies experience arrives in the Modern Warfare universe as a team of multi-national Operators assist the members of Task Force 141 against vast undead hordes brought on by a second major enemy threat. Watch the trailer and dig into the lore of this massive, open-world experience launching with Modern Warfare III on November 10."

Sledgehammer Games is at the helm for this year's Call of Duty title - a studio that has delivered plenty of undead goodness in the past. In fact, every single Sledgehammer-led CoD game has featured Zombies in some fashion, from Advanced Warfare right through to Vanguard.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is bringing campaign, multiplayer and Zombies to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on November 10th. At the time of writing, this one won't be included in Xbox Game Pass as Microsoft continues to figure out its Activision Blizzard acquisition.

Looking forward to some Zombies action this year? Let us know down below!
