Treyarch, the developer behind Call of Duty: Vanguard's Zombies mode this year, has dropped a ton of information to prepare players for taking on the zombie hordes.
This comes courtesy of a detailed ‘Gameplay Guide to Vanguard Zombies’ post on the developer's official website, and it breaks down everything from new Dark Aether mechanics, building on its introduction in Black Ops Cold War, to equipable covenants and upgradable perks.
Call of Duty: Vanguard's Zombies mode will see the introduction of four Dark Aether entities, each of which offers a unique artefact to players which can be used to gain a powerful ability.
The game will also have eleven covenants which can equipped in return for new Sacrificial Heart loot items, with three covenants able to be equipped at once.
Perks have been reworked from previous games too, with five perk fountains found around the Der Anfang map. The base tier of each perk will be completely free, but you can upgrade them up to a maximum of Tier 4 by spending Essence, improving the potency of each perk. You can check out the five perks below.
There's plenty more information about Zombies to discover, so check out the blog post for the full lowdown, if you want to prep before the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard on 5th November 2021.
