The Zombies mode for Modern Warfare III was one of the biggest talking points of the game. With Call of Duty promising the largest Zombie mode offering, fans were keen to find out what that entailed. New details reveal it is quite different than what fans expected, with the mode being a mix between Outbreak and DMZ.

To begin with, the mode will be a mixture of DMZ and Outbreak, only with the addition of Zombies. Instead of speculation of the mode being on Verdansk, it will take place on the new Warzone map.
