Not that aliens in games, or any media for that matter, are anything new, but this years Call of Duty replaces it’s much adored zombie survival mode with something I certainly didn’t see coming from this series. Aliens have always been a popular form of apocalypse. From movies like The Day the Earth Stood Still and, well.. Alien, to games like Halo and X-COM. But now, they’re making their way into another one of the most popular franchises of all time. The new Extinction mode has you fending off alien hordes while attempting to destroy what seem to be nests of their brethren.
From the teaser trailer below, it doesn’t actually look half bad. But then again, it’s only a trailer. It very well might just be a reskinned version of the Zombies mode. Or it could be something new and interesting. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. For now though, enjoy the creepy crawlies in the official trailer.
