The Haunting of Verdansk also adds Zombie Royale
Call of Duty is throwing another Halloween horror crossover, and this year Billy the Puppet from Saw and Leatherface from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre are here to play. Don't worry if you see them running around in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare or Call of Duty: Warzone. Well, be a little alarmed.
Activision has a full recap of the Haunting of Verdansk – the event starts October 20 and will run until November 3 – but there's also a quick and accurate roadmap below in one easy image.
Along with premium Saw and TCM skin packs (for Morte and Velikan, respectively), Warzone is getting a "night" variant, there are Trick or Treat supply boxes to collect (with 16 total rewards to find), and the Zombie Royale mode will dodge Gulag skirmishes to turn fallen players into zombies who can move faster, jump higher, hit harder, and rely on heat vision to track down their prey.
“When a player is killed, they drop a syringe that spawns on the map. Collect two of these syringes as a zombie and you'll parachute with your loadout onto your squad for a second chance! The last squad standing with a surviving Operator wins... even if the rest of the squad is turned undead. "
Even though horror movie outfits are way overpriced, I still appreciate a good Halloween event.
