Mauer der Toten takes place on February 2nd, 1985, which is after all of the previous Zombies releases. On the game’s website, Activision recommends that those looking forward to the new map catch up on “all the Dark Aether Zombies experiences released so far.” The Dark Aether storyline has been a compelling part of Zombies mode, and it will be interesting to see how this chapter continues the narrative! The trailer presents a lot of questions, and one dark, shadowy figure.
While the trailer offers a lot to love, Klaus might be the true scene-stealer. The robot has an awesome design, and it will be intriguing to see how it works in the game. From the brief snippet of footage, it looks like players will be able to activate the robot for assistance, but Activision hasn’t given any additional details. For now, players will just have to find out for themselves when the update launches next week!
