Sledgehammer Games’ Glen Schofield has compared the upcoming Call of Duty WW2 zombies to EA’s Dead Space series. Many fans on Twitter are excited as the Dead Space series has a more emphasized gore and horror approach to undead and reanimated creatures. Schofield also said that Sledgerhammer Games’ zombies has its own dark vibe different from the Dead Space series.
As seen on his Twitter posts, Schofield replied to many fans asking about the Call of Duty WW2 zombies’ scare factor. Instead of directly answering the fans, Schofield asked if they liked Dead Space. Many fans were hyped not only because Schofield’s hint of a more horror-focused zombies game mode but also a potential substitute to EA’s missing horror series.
Schofield also confirmed that Call of Duty WW2 zombies has a similar vibe to the Dead Space series. “The world is definitely in its own dark place. Very dark. Fun as hell tho,” said Schofield on Twitter. Potentially, the upcoming Sledgehammer zombies iteration will focus more on horror. This a big change of pace from Infinity Ward’s Infinite Warfare zombies mode as it focused more on novelty and lighthearted stories, as seen on its characters and settings.
Meanwhile, EA’s Dead Space series has been remembered for its gory dismemberments when enemies and the player character is killed. Additionally, its bosses and major enemies are grotesque amalgamations of corpses, which make them slightly nauseating to fight. However, EA has yet to add another entry after Dead Space 3 which was released last 2013. If Call of Duty WW2 zombies pushes in this direction, players may have to brace themselves for a scary Call of Duty zombies experience. So far, players can shoot off limbs of zombies but the game mode never adds a gory touch to it.
In July 20, the Call of Duty WW2 zombies world reveal will happen in the upcoming San Diego Comic Con. We can confirm what Schofield said on Twitter when the game mode is revealed on stage. Stay updated with more Call of Duty WW2 news here on The BitBag.
