An all-star cast has been announced for the Zombies content in Call of Duty: Black Ops’ upcoming Escalation DLC.
The new zombie level is titled Call of the Dead and will feature characters voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Robert England (Nightmare on Elm Street, Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead) and Danny Trejo (Machete).
The level even stars iconic horror director George A. Romero as himself. Romero’s films, such as Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead, served as inspiration for the new DLC.
Our latest zombie creation, Call of the Dead, is unreal,” says Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia. We set out to create an exciting new zombie experience for fans of the genre that takes Zombies to an insane new level.
Black Ops director Dave Anthony added: This is Treyarch’s tribute to the legendary George Romero, who truly defined the zombie genre and whose incredible work has been such an inspiration to our team.
It was an absolute honour to work with such an amazing and talented cast whose passion and energy brought their characters instantly to life. Fans are going to love this.”
Escalation will be available on Xbox Live from May 3rd. PSN and PC versions will be released at a later date.
