While playing in the Warzone Rumble playlist, gamers discovered a possible easter egg hinting that Cold War Zombies are coming to Activision's battle royale. Upon approaching a new machine that's been added to Verdansk Hospital players are met with an "Activate Zombies" interaction prompt. The machine has a strikingly similar look to the trials machine in the Cold War's Zombie mode.
Call of Duty is infamous for its elaborate zombie easter eggs, so it's quite possible that fan excitement over this small addition to the map is justified. Around the end of last year, developers hinted at the first integration between Warzone and Cold War through players experiencing a random in-game static screen. On Thursday, at the beginning of a Warzone match one player experienced this same effect after opening a chest.
It's unclear what Activision's goal is, but with their track record fans should be very excited for what's to come. It's quite possible that these hints could mark the return of the Zombie Royale game mode that allowed fallen players to come back as the undead. Whatever it is that the developers have in store for fans it'll be sure to excite both Warzone fans and zombie fans alike.
