A zombie tiger is the star of new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies trailer

There’s a new story trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Zombie mode and it has itching to grab our squad and start blasting away the living dead.

The three minute trailer sets up who the new characters are and how they ended up in their current predicament. Scarlett Rhodes is on the trail of her eccentric father, along with three cohorts (Shaw, Diego, and Bruno) who apparently owe her absent dad a “great debt”.

However, the ship they’re searching ends up being taken over by a dark magic that turns everyone but them into zombies. After blasting through a seemingly never-ending horde of zombies, they’re transported back in time to a Roman-esque coliseum. Phew, looks like things won’t be easy for us this year!

Naturally, a few things stand out during the trailer. At the top of our “did you see that!” list is the zombie tigers that stalk the coliseum of new map IX. We advise not getting too close to these bloodthirsty creatures.

On top of that, we got a look at what appears to be new melee weapons you’ll be using in the mode. From a hammer that seems to be generating purple lightning to a spiked disc that cuts through waves of the undead, these zombie-smashing tools look like great fun to wield.

We won’t have to wait long to learn more though, as Treyarch have confirmed they’ll be discussing Zombies at San Diego Comic Con this week.

With the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 multiplayer beta dates announced this week, we won’t have to wait too long to get our first taste of the game!
