Activision has shared a teaser for Call of Duty: Vanguard's Zombies mode, briefly previewing the mode's story and promising a full trailer Thursday.

The teaser is only 15 seconds long, but it packs a fair amount of content into that runtime. It opens on a zombie arm reaching up through the ground in front of mysterious burning glyphs. It then cuts to what looks like a German officer shedding his cape as zombies rise around him, presumably to do his bidding. He turns to the camera as a huge, four-armed monster emerges from a fiery portal behind him.

The teaser ends with a splash screen showing Call of Duty: Vanguard's Nov. 5 release date, followed by the information that players who pre-order the game digitally will receive the Night Raid Mastercraft and Operator Arthur Kingsley.

The music in the trailer is "bury a friend," by Billie Eilish, remixed by Chris Avantgarde.

The full trailer is set to premiere on the Call of Duty YouTube channel at 11 a.m. ET on Thursday.
