Call of Duty: Warzone Haunting of Verdansk event introduces new Zombie Royale


Warzone's Haunting of Verdansk event is mixing things up with a new nighttime map, zombies, and killer costumes from some famous horror movies.

If you're anxious about running out of time, then you don't have to fret as the Haunting of Verdansk event won't come to an end until Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Those planning to play the update and experience the event for themselves can jump in right now, as the event official came to a start on October 20, 2020 at 1 p.m. ET. Nighttime infiltrations will only be available in select modes such as Trios.

Although the full moon's glow prevents total darkness, operators might want to still pack some Thermal optics in their Loadout Drops to help spot enemies lurking about in low-light areas or use Cold-Blooded to counter these high-tech tools.

Operators can fight against and alongside powerful zombified creatures as part of Zombie Royale, a limited-time mode where death is far from permanent. Those who die during a match of Warzone won't be sent to the Gulag. Although zombies can not use weapons, they have supernatural abilities: increased speed, improved jumps, deadlier melee attacks, and thermal vision. If you do end up turning into one of the undead, you can still respawn as an Operator.

Also in Warzone are new Trick or Treat Supply Boxes. Activision is warning players to go after these Supply Boxes at their peril.

ActivisionZombie Royale sees players fighting off - and even becoming - zombies, in Modern Warfare's Halloween event. Activision says there are some spooky changes in game modes too, "expect scarecrows on Domination points instead of flags, skulls instead of dog tags in Kill Confirmed".

Two new multiplayer modes are included with this update as well: Onslaughter and Snipers Only.

While we eagerly await more details about the film, Call of Duty fans can take advantage of a special The Texas Chainsaw Massacre bundle, based on the original 1974 film, allowing players to terrorize each other as Leatherface.

Haunting of Verdansk kicks off on October 20 at 10:00 PDT / 13:00 EDT / 18:00 BST, as reliable CoD fansite Charlie Intel notes on Twitter.
