This news arrives a few days after the debut of a Black Ops 4 Zombies story trailer. In 2018's Zombies mode, players step into the shoes of Scarlett Rhodes, whose eccentric father has recently disappeared. While Rhodes and her trio of friends look for the missing man, they uncover a special artifact with powers strong enough to threaten the fate of humanity. When Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launches Oct. 12, the game will feature three separate Zombies maps based on a gladiator arena, the Titanic and a remake of Mob of the Dead called Blood of the Dead.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is available Oct. 12 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
