Call of Duty:Mobile zombie mode ready to lurch back from the great beyond
Stop and think about zombies for a second, and the brilliance of them is them is that they are us, only totally clueless. Think about that for a second. Almost every monster you can think of—ghosts, demons, vampires, mummies, Donald J. Trump—has some vague idea that it’s not a nice person. And is totally okay with that. Zombies, on the other hand, literally have zero idea what’s going on. Cut off their arms, and they don’t seem to know you’ve just caused them grievous bodily harm. Ask them “Don’t you love you any more?” and they’ll respond by chewing off your fingers. And that you can feel great about killing them is what makes today today’s Call of Duty:Mobile zombie update so exciting.
A community update on Reddit has revealed that the zombies mode that was removed from the platform last March 2020 is about to come back from the dead. Initially, players will need the Chinese edition of Call of Duty:Mobile to play.
Rather than take our word for it, here’s what the Reddit thread reads:
“Greetings Call of Duty: Mobile Community! Season 2: Day of Reckoning is in full swing with the featured event, Pursuit, now available and full of new rewards to collect. We’ll have more details on that below, but the first thing we’d like to address this week is something that is important to many players out there and always asked about every single week – ZOMBIES!
“Our original ZOMBIES map, Shi No Numa, will soon be available in the Chinese version of Call of Duty: Mobile. For the rest of the world we haven’t forgotten about you! Hang tight a bit longer Call of Duty: Mobile players — we are planning to release a new ZOMBIES experience later in the year.”
Call of Duty:Mobile zombie mode first debuted in 2008. Since then players have been able to do battle with the dead everywhere from Siberia to the Pentagon.
Watch for the official worldwide return of the walking dead later this year. And thank the lord you won’t have to be doing battle with the Prince of Darkness, Beelzebub, or the ghost of Leona Helmsley.
