[dropcap size=small]J[/dropcap]ohn Malkovich is one of the most prolific actors in Hollywood, and the veteran can now add Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to his extensive résumé. Sledgehammer Games and Activision have released a trailer the new zombie mode DLC for Advanced Warfare called Exo Zombies, which features Malkovich delivering a haunting voiceover. Check out the trailer below.
The game will feature a virtual version of Malkovich along with seasoned actors Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal who will portray the lone four survivors, working as part of a military company called Atlas. The subject matter is no new territory for any of the four actors: Malkovich starred in the zombie rom com Warm Bodies, Paxton fought off cannibals in 2013’s The Colony, McGowan had a machine gun leg as her weapon of choice against the undead in Robert Rodriguez’s Planet Terror portion of Grindhouse, and Jon Bernthal portrayed Shane on AMC’s powerhouse drama The Walking Dead.
Activision has brought on major Hollywood actors to appear as part of zombies DLC for Call of Duty in the past: Ray Liotta, Michael Madsen, Chazz Palminteri, and Joe Pantoliano (all known for playing mob characters in their films) took part in Mob of the Dead, the zombie map from Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
The first episode of Exo Zombies will be available in the Havoc expansion pack that will be released in January. The DLC can be purchased individually for $15 or as part of the Season Pass, which will include four packs for a total of $50.
If someone can assure me that Paxton’s iconic line from Aliens will be somehow worked into the game, I’ll buy the Season Pass right now. “Game over, man! Game over!”
