Fans are curiously waiting to see Zombies inside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 when the game comes out this year. Since the announcement was made regarding the debut of the undead in the MW universe, there’s been a growing hype throughout the COD community. However, turns out things may not go as planned.

So far, players have only received an extended look at the gameplay from Zombies mode during the COD Next event. They are yet to witness the entirety of this open world mode. However, a renowned COD expert has recently shared his early impressions of this unique experience. While revealing multiple thoughts, he mentioned a DMZ feature, usually seen in Warzone. And going by the early impression, it could spell trouble for the highly anticipated Zombies mode.

MrDalekJD is a reputed gamer and COD YouTuber. He’s earned a huge name across the community for being highly accurate with his updates and overall knowledge on the series. Especially when it comes to the Zombies-based titles.

In one of his latest videos on YouTube, the COD expert shared his honest thoughts on the upcoming Zombies mode in MW3. Although Dalek said that he’s generally liking Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Zombies, there are several issues that need to be addressed. One of them happens to be the involvement of AI soldiers.

According to him, a Zombies mode shouldn’t have artificial intelligence in the first place. And that several previous attempts to mix AI Mercenaries with the undead in DLC maps like Carrier and Descent haven’t really worked out well. The YouTuber said that it’s okay to have AI in DMZ due to the storyline, but there’s no actual need to use this strategy in MW3 Zombies.

The YouTuber tried to imply that MWZ is very similar to how DMZ plays out under Warzone. So much so that most of the features inside the Zombies experience are relatable to the extraction-based mode. With all this mind, players will surely still want to try it for themselves to decide how they feel about the Zombies mode. And while players are undoubtedly hyped about it, there’s a ton of other exciting features.

What to expect from Modern Warfare 3 upon launch next month?

It will offer a lot of content apart from Zombies. Modern Warfare 3 will feature an improved Multiplayer experience, packed with 16 remastered maps. To name a few, players will be able to revisit areas like Favela, Rust, Estate, Highrise, Afghan, Derail, Skidrow, Scrapyard and more.

Not to mention the traditional Campaign mode that will return as well. Its story will continue from where last year’s Modern Warfare II ended. This time, however, an iconic arch nemesis of Task Force 141 will also make his comeback. Vladimir Makarov, who was last seen in 2011’s original Modern Warfare 3, will be the ultimate threat for Captain Price and his team.

And then, we do have the Zombies mode, of course. It will be based on a PvE format. Players will need to either form teams together or go solo against massive hordes of the undead. Their main objective will be to finish certain story-driven quests, loot items, and extract successfully.
