A New Trailer For ‘Call Of Duty: WWII’ Has Leaked And It’s Absolutely Horrifying
Activision’s hotly anticipated game Call of Duty: WWII goes back to the franchise’s roots, and, in the process, dusts off an old fan favorite: zombies. But this time, it’s grisly, bloody, and straight-up creepy.
A new trailer, which was originally set to release during Comic Con later this month, was leaked online a bit early, and while the game developers are probably pissed about that, die-hard fans of the franchise’s undead-centric survival game should be stoked. Why? Because unlike its campier predecessors, this zombie mode is “I will only play with the lights on and my dog next to me” freaky.
In the trailer, hordes of stitched-together hell-creatures in Nazi uniforms shamble across the bloodstained tile floors of a laboratory, with all their mangled fleshy bits and distended jaws caught in the flickering light and bursts of fire from Thompson machine guns. All the while, the narrator proclaims the coming of the Fourth Reich over a gritty speaker system.
Zombie mode was always a blast to play in the Call of Duty games, and it pretty much always ends the same way: with the player being devoured by undead flesh-eaters. With the new rendition of the minigame, it looks like Activision wants it to be less about fun gameplay and more about terrifying immersion as you sit on your sweat-soaked couch trying to get away from nightmarish monsters; like this guy, who looks like he got beaten to death with the ugly stick, twice:
If you’re in the simulated Nazi-killin’ business, get ready for the game’s launch on Nov. 3, because with hellish footsoldiers of the Third Reich rising from the grave, the Nazi-killin’ business, is a boom’n.
2 years after the Fitzgerald and McCain collisions, the Navy has no idea if its new ship-driving training is working
Two years after a pair of deadly collisions involving Navy ships killed 17 sailors and caused hundreds of millions of dollars of damage, the Navy still can't figure out whether its plan to improve ship-driving training has been effective.
In fact, according to senior Navy officials quoted in a recent Government Accountability Office report on Navy ship-driving, it could take nearly 16 years or more to know if the planned changes will actually have an impact.
The command chief of the 20th Fighter Wing at Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina, was removed from his position last month after his chain of command received evidence he disrespected his subordinates.
An Air Force private housing company faked its maintenance records to get millions of dollars in bonuses
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) - A U.K. company that provides housing to U.S. military families came under official investigation earlier this year, after Reuters disclosed it had faked maintenance records to pocket performance bonuses at an Oklahoma Air Force base.
At the time, Balfour Beatty Communities said it strove to correctly report its maintenance work. It blamed any problems on a sole former employee at the Oklahoma base.
Now, Reuters has found that Balfour Beatty employees systematically doctored records in a similar scheme at a Texas base.
The Air Force is urging airmen to avoid using any products with cannabidiol oil, also known as CBD oil. Why? Because products with CBD oil can make airmen test positive during a urine test for the presence of marijuana, which is still illegal under federal law.
The Air Force announcement comes three months after the Department of Defense reminded service members that CBD use is "completely forbidden."
