Call of the Dead Plot Revealed?
A page has surfaced on iMDB that reveals the plot summary and all-star cast list (Danny Trejo, Robert Englund, Michael Rooker, Sarah Michelle Gellar and George A. Romero) for the new Zombies map in the upcoming, second Call of Duty: Black Ops content pack, Escalation.
Although the article has been written by “Anonymous” and may be untrue (UPDATE: it has now been confirmed), it seems to tie-in with a brief glimpse of Call of the Dead that was spotted in last week’s preview. Check out said screenshot below and read the plot summary below that.
A shipwrecked crew of fearless explorers are hopelessly stranded in a remote abandoned Siberian outpost. Their dream of discovering the true origins of the mysterious Element 115 unravels into a Hellish nightmare hosted by hordes of ravenous Zombies. Written by Anonymous
It’s anchors away for mayhem! In this epic tale of survival inspired by legendary writer and director George A. Romero, a group of four fearless explorers fight for their lives amidst an army of bloodthirsty Russian zombies. The story begins with our heroes stranded in the frozen wastelands of a forgotten Siberian outpost. On the hunt for the origins of the enigmatic Element 115, they head for the site of an ancient meteorite impact crater but their ship mysteriously runs aground. In the midst of a horrific snowstorm, our intrepid adventurers inadvertently unleash an unearthly horde of ravenous Zombies. From the island’s deserted lighthouse to a shipwrecked ocean liner and a precarious zip-line in between, it’s kill or be killed. And with shiploads of zombie Russian soldiers, scuba divers and sailors that rise out of the frozen ground and icy waters it’s not going to be easy, especially considering the deadly surprise that one particular (and somewhat notable) Zombie has in mind.Written by Anonymous
