Not too long ago, Activision and Treyarch delivered the fan-favorite area known as Nuketown to players of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, and now it looks as if the latest entry in the long-running first-person shooter franchise is going to receive yet another DLC map. This time, however, it appears as if the publisher and developer are set to expand upon the game’s Zombies mode, as a recent image making the rounds online has leaked the next map on the way.
As seen in the image below, a French version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 shows that Activision and Treyarch plan on incorporating a brand new Zombies experience with the story dubbed “Night of the Dead”. According to a paraphrasing of the map’s description, some associates of the relic hunter Alistair Rhodes–father of IX and Voyage of Despair character, Scarlett Rhodes–are invited to a grand ball in England during 1912. The guests include the likes of a fortune teller and a show cowboy, as well as a retired general and his loyal butler. Naturally, they don’t expect “the horror that awaits them.”
While its pretty easy to discern three out of the four characters’ faces in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 mode as Kiefer Sutherland as the cowboy, Helena Bonham Carter as the fortune teller, and Charles Dance as the butler, with a big beard obscuring the general’s face, it’s anyone’s guess as to who will be playing him. A quick glance suggests that comedian Zach Galifianakis has taken on the role, but with neither Activision nor Treyarch having confirmed as much, there’s no way to officially know just yet.
For those unaware, this won’t be the first instance of the Call of Duty franchise hiring an all-star ensemble cast to represent the players in a Zombies experience, as 2014’s Advanced Warfare featured the likes of John Malkovich, Rose McGowan, Bill Paxton, and even Bruce Campbell. It’s also worth noting that this won’t be Kiefer Sutherlands’ first rodeo when it comes to lending his talents to a game production, as he voiced Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain.
Taking all of this into consideration, we will simply have to be patient and see just what else Activision and Treyarch have planned for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s next Zombies experience. Of course, with The Game Awards 2018 taking place tomorrow night, there’s a good chance the publisher and developer won’t make us wait too long, and could officially confirm the “Night of the Dead” map at some point during the ceremony.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
