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.
It sure would be nice to know what the hell is going on in Afghanistan. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently claimed the U.S. military had killed more than 1,000 Taliban fighters in little more than a week – because body counts worked so well in Vietnam – and President Donald Trump said during his speech commemorating the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks that the United States had gone on the offensive against the Taliban.
"The last four days, we have hit our enemy harder than they have ever been hit before, and that will continue," Trump said, without elaborating further.
It's clear that Afghanistan is the new hotness, but the only people who aren't talking about how the strategic situation has changed since Trump abruptly ended peace talks with the Taliban via tweet are the U.S. military leaders in charge of actually fighting the war.
Nearly a decade after he allegedly murdered an unarmed Afghan civilian during a 2010 deployment, the case of Army Maj. Matthew Golsteyn is finally going to trial.
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) - The Taliban have sent a delegation to Russia to discuss prospects for a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan following the collapse of talks with the United States this month, officials from the insurgent group said.
The move, days after President Donald Trump canceled a planned meeting with Taliban leaders at his Camp David retreat, came as the movement looks to bolster regional support, with visits also planned for China, Iran and Central Asian states.

Per his final demands, Joe Heller was laid in his casket Thursday in a T-shirt featuring the Disney dwarf Grumpy and the middle finger of his right hand extended. He also told his daughters to make sure and place a remote control fart machine in the coffin with him.
"My father always wanted the last laugh," daughter Monique Heller said.
The Essex volunteer firefighter and self-described local "dawg kecher" died on Sept. 8 at age 82, and the off-color obituary written by his youngest daughter has become a nationwide sensation — a lead item on cable news sites, a top story on The Courant's website and a post shared far and wide on social media.
Laced with bawdy humor, the irreverent but loving obit captured Heller's highly inappropriate nature and his golden heart, friends who filled the fire station for a celebration of his life on Thursday evening said.
A 19-year-old man who planned a July mass shooting at a West Lubbock hotel that was thwarted by his grandmother was upset that he was considered "defective" by the military when he was discharged for his mental illness, according to court records.
William Patrick Williams faces federal charges for reportedly lying on an application to buy the semiautomatic rifle he planned to use in a shooting, according to a federal indictment filed Aug. 14.
He is charged with a federal felony count of making a false material statement during the purchase of a firearm on July 11, a day before he planned to lure people out of a hotel and shoot them. The charge carries a punishment of up to five years in prison.
