Vikings Star Katheryn Winnick Joins Call Of Duty: WWII Zombie Cast

As is widely known, Call of Duty: WWII will have a Zombie mode, in which the lead roles will be played by famous people. David Tennant (Doctor Who) and Elodie Yung (Daredevil) were already known to be featured as zombies. Now it has been revealed that Vikings actress Katheryn Winnick will also be seen in the series.

Call of Duty: WWII Zombie mode gets one more actress

Winnick will play Marie Fischer, whose character is described as “intrepid” by Activision. While not much is known about the character, it is believed that she will be part of the Resistance that fights the zombie horde that the Nazis created.

More details are expected on July 20, the scheduled date for Activision’s Call of Duty: WWII Zombie panel at San Diego Comic-Con. So there are good chances more actors are being added to the game gradually.

Call of Duty: World War II is scheduled to launch on November 3 on the Xbox One, PC and PS4. A multiplayer beta of the game will be hosted by Activision and Sledgehammer Games sometime before the launch on November 3. For now, the beta has been confirmed for the Xbox One and PS4, and there is no information on the PC version. You will have to pre-order the game to get access to the beta version.

What makes Zombie mode different this time?

According to Michael Condrey of Sledgehammer,  Zombie mode is a favorite of most fans and has been created to make sure that it leads to an adrenaline rush for players. The Zombie mode is already popular, and making it star-studded makes it even more attractive. In the past, we have also seen stars featured in the Zombie mode. Zombie mode in Black Ops 3 featured Jeff Goldblum, Ron Perlman, Heather Graham and Neil McDonough.

Developer Sledgehammer previously said that players will get to see an “entirely new story” in Call of Duty: WWII Zombie mode, and it will be a “pretty horrifying experience.” This mode is about desperate attempts by the Third Reich to create an army during the final stages of the war.

A leaked YouTube trailer for the game which has since been taken down showed a lot of dead bodies covered in blood with scary music playing in the background. However, one thing that was more noticeable this time is the dark theme. As usual, the developer wasn’t pleased with the leak.

“Leaks aren’t ideal, but know that we appreciate the support. We’re almost done with the Nazi Zombies Trailer. Hang tight, it’ll be worth it!” tweeted Sledgehammer last week.

Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey also urged fans to avoid leaks.

Previously, Sledgehammer has tried different things to make the game more appealing, but this time, it has decided to do something entirely new by making the game’s entire backdrop much more gruesome and scary than all of the previous series.
