Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is doing its Zombies mode in a totally new fashion, if this trailer is anything to go by.
The trailer, which you can see below, is titled "IX". What that exactly entails, whether it's a campaign mission or not, isn't exactly clear. But what is clear is that for this particular story, we have a group of Indiana Jones-types who drink some oozy green juice and travel back in time to what looks like a very Romanesque arena.
They go from wearing early-20th style century clothing to gladiator gear, and await as a masked figure in black robes hoists a scepter and, slamming it into the ground, transforms a few chained individuals into zombies.
Classic, gore-filled, gladiator-on-zombie violence ensues.
There's nothing to suggest that there is any gameplay involved in the trailer, as the inclusion of melee weapons surely suggests a change of pace for the franchise's most unique gameplay mode.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 releases October 12th.
