A new teaser from the developers at Activision has fans excited about the zombie horde spreading deeper into Verdansk, which may be followed up by something even bigger.

In the teaser trailer, we watch a horde of zombies escape from an abandoned shipwreck. In Season 2 Shipwrecked is the only area on Verdansk where players can encounter zombies. With them leaving the ship it's clear that in the next couple of updates players be seeing the undead in more areas throughout the map. This may ultimately change the way that Warzone is played moving forward.

Prior to the release of this trailer, audio files for a new game mode in Warzone called "Plague" were leaked on March 4. The files include voice lines about Verdansk being "overrun" and the city being "lost," all before confirmation of a nuke heading towards the island.

Between the Zombie horde spreading and the leaked voice lines it's possible that this could be a rollout for an entirely new Warzone map. Players may find themselves battling through the wreckage of a post-apocalyptic wasteland having to watch out for both players and zombies. However, there's no confirmation that this will be Activision's next step so we'll just have to wait and see when they release the upcoming Nuke event.
