After the multiplayer and campaign reveals, we now have the CoD: Vanguard Zombies trailer. What does the trailer show us and how does Treyarch continue the story?
Call of Duty: Vanguard will be released in a few weeks, on November 5th, and we've already seen the Multiplayer Reveal and the Vanguard campaign trailer. We were even able to test the multiplayer in great detail during the beta, which we of course reported on in detail:
- The CoD: Vanguard Beta - Review
- 6 Things Sledgehammer Needs To Fix Before CoD: Vanguard's Launch
- Which Edition of Call of Duty: Vanguard Should You Buy?
But now we get to see the CoD: Vanguard Zombies Trailer - before the official announcement even.
The CoD: Vanguard Zombies Reveal Trailer
As soon as the official trailer goes live in good quality, we will embed it here, but for the time being, we can only offer the trailer to you in poorer quality:
We have known for a long time that Treyarch took over the development of the Zombies mode in Vanguard - and you can see that in the trailer. The entire thing is very reminiscent of Black Ops Cold War Zombies, which is no wonder since it was already known that the BOCW Dark Aether story would be continued in Vanguard.
What's In The Trailer?
In the trailer, we see, among other things, the multiplayer map Hotel Royal, which has been adapted for the zombie's mode, and we also get a glimpse of the classic Zombies map Shi No Numa. So that's absolutely nuts. Clearly, someone very wise at Sledgehammer has realized how much of a gold mine the older CoD: World at War is.
We also already see some artifacts that CoD Leaker Nanikos kindly summarized for us:

Frost Blast, Energy Mine, Aether Shroud, and Ring of Fire seem to be part of Vanguard Zombies. And as in BOCW, we won't have to play as map-specific characters, but as operators of our choice.
What About The Zombies Story?
As for the zombie's story, I'm a complete noob, unfortunately. However, the trailer shows the Nazi Heinrich Freisinger, known from the campaign trailer, who enters into a pact with a kind of demon that provides him with a zombie army. With a view to the campaign trailer, in which the Third Reich is about to fall and Heinrich speaks of plans for a fourth Reich, that makes perfect sense. Nazi Germany is on the verge of collapse and to prevent that, Heinrich simply gets a zombie army.
Of course, I might be completely wrong here, but at least that sounds logical to me.
Once the official trailer goes live, we'll update this article.
