Call of the Dead makes Black Ops’ Escalation DLC awesome

Another month, another bog standard Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC pack — wait what’s this?!

Treyarch are pulling out all the stops for their new zombie map, Call of the Dead, that launches with the new Escalation maps next week. Not only is the level taking inspiration from the works of legendary zombie director George Romero, but it’s also set to star himself, Robert Englund, Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy!), Michael Rooker, and Danny “awesome” Trejo (we came up with that nickname).

The trailer above shows that the map is lifted from one of the levels in the game’s campaign. Heads fly/burst as these horror stars rip up hordes of the undead; looks like a bloody good time.

As mentioned earlier, Escalation is out next week.
