Treyarch and Activision have rolled out a trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies, giving us a taste of what's to come once the game launches and promising the biggest day one Zombies offering since the mode officially came to be.

So, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies co-op mode will be coming with IX, Voyage of Despair and Blood of the Dead maps available right from launch, which indeed confirms Activision and Treyarch's claims. Considering how far along the mode has come since it launched in CoD: World at War, it's no wonder users are asking for a full game spinoff.

Furthermore, this marks the first time CoD Zombies mode comes with two separate storylines. Blood of the Dead is basically a remake of CoD: Black Ops 2's Mob of the Dead, while IX and Voyage of Despair make up the new Chaos storyline.

The new trailer focuses on the Chaos storyline, together with the new cast consisting of Scarlett, Shaw, Diego and Bruno. As the story goes, Scarlett Rhodes is trying to discover the whereabouts of her father, who mysteriously disappeared. Apparently, she tried to stare into the abyss and the abyss gave her a gun. Seems legit.

Scarlett teams up with Shaw, Diego and Bruno to fend off the hordes of the undead and "uncover a prized relic wielding an extraordinary power that threatens all of humanity." Must be a Wand of Honesty or something along those lines, wink wink.

The search for her father takes Scarlett and the gang to RMS Titanic, where they get mixed up in some dark magic and waves after waves of undead zombies. Ultimately, they are transported from Voyage of Despair's Titanic settings to IX, which takes place in a Roman Colosseum, where they're again forced to kick some behind and chew bubble gum. The Roman-meets-zombies kind of bubblegum.

So there you have it, in case you've been looking forward to any kind of singleplayer, Zombies is the closest you'll get. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launches for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 12 October 2018.
