In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Call of Duty Zombies, Black Ops 4 is giving gamers three different story modes with the dead sprinkled in. “Voyage of Despair” will be set aboard the RMS Titanic, where four characters discover what befell the doomed passengers one fateful night; “IX” will be set in ancient Rome and feature a coliseum with ritual sacrifices; and “Blood of the Dead” features the characters from “Origins” taking a trip to the purgatory dimension Alcatraz.

That’s a lot of dead people!


When the first Black Ops 4 trailer dropped, we noted that this isn’t a throwback to on-the-ground fighting in WWII as in previous editions. Black Ops 4 is going all in on being a futuristic thrill ride, switching perspectives and blasting along at a breakneck pace.

Here’s more on the plot—and new game’s fiery heroine—from EW:

The Black Ops 4 trailer now takes us to Scarlett Rhodes, who’s trying to solve the mysterious disappearance of her father in “Voyage of Despair.” According to Activision, Scarlett, “with the help of three loyal outcasts,” will “fight waves of the undead and uncover a prized relic wielding an extraordinary power that threatens all of humanity.” As shown in the trailer, dark magic was at play that cursed the passengers aboard the RMS Titanic to live as the undead.


Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies will debut October 12 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Hope you’re ready.
