Call of Duty‘s first downloadable content has hit the Xbox One today, bringing with it some maps the competitive folks should enjoy and a chance to soak in the sound bytes of four prominent actors while shooting mechanically-pulled zombies. That’s my jam. 3
Warning: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare story spoilers ahead. 4
First off, I just typed out “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare story spoilers” with a straight face. Lacking the sort of complex motion capture technology required to scan John Malkovich, Jon Bernthal, Rose McGowan and Bill Paxton’s heads into the first installment of the new Exo Zombies co-op mode, you’ll just have to take my word. “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare story spoilers.” Okay, that time I laughed.
At some point in the storyline for the main game a biological agent is released by some giant evil company I’ll not mention to avoid spoiling it. The agent is supposed to kill non-employees of said company. Instead it turns everybody at the company’s headquarters into a zombie. Everyone except for a security guard (Bernthal), a Rose McGowan, Bill Paxton as your dad and John Malkovich as the foul-mouthed janitor with a heart of gold.
You may have seen last week’s story trailer. Here is the full intro for the game mode’s first installment.
