Call Of Duty: WWII adds a new Nazi Zombies chapter in January’s Resistance DLC, and you can watch a trailer for it above. The clip offers a tease of the new weapons, foes and stories your squad will encounter in The Darkest Shore.

Last month’s multiplayer trailer offered a brief description of what the next chapter of Zombies might entail, and now we get to see several of those ideas in action. The plot takes our co-op quartet to a small island north of Germany surrounded by fog. Just like in The Final Reich, Marie and her crew are apparently one step behind the devious Dr. Straub who has bred an army of undead enemies on the hazy shores. Visibility is low so scares have the potential to be extra high. Threats hide beneath the ground and in the ocean, so no inch of territory is safe.

The clip doesn’t reveal much about the map itself, but there are a few interesting details. For one, it appears German airstrikes will rain down on our heroes in addition to the enemy masses on the ground. Teams shot down electric-powered blimps in the first chapter, so it’s possible planes could be leveraged in a similar fashion this time.

We also get a quick look at a new zombie type that’s more demonic than anything we’ve seen yet. Its red eyes are menacing, and Sledgehammer previously described the creature as “clever and strategic” like the devil himself. In other words, it doesn’t look like this guy will behave like a traditional run-and-gun bullet sponge. The final major detail, of course, is the neat Ripsaw weapon that slices decayed flesh to shreds. Hopefully we won’t have to diverge too far from the Easter egg path to get it.

That big-picture stuff will appeal to the casual Zombies fans, but we’ve also got one hardcore secret to report too. Around the 94-second mark, you’ll hear the familiar Wisp sound that played a key role in Black Ops 3’s Der Eisendrache map. The general assumption has been that Nazi Zombies doesn’t relate to the established Zombies canon, but maybe the fine folks at SHG have been fooling us.

We don’t fully comprehend the lore of Nazi Zombies, and hopefully in this DLC chapter some of  those questions get answered. The fate of Klaus depends on which Easter egg you’ve completed, so we’ll be interested to see how those diverging paths play into the larger plot. What takes us to this island? How is Straub able to control this massive army? Most importantly, is there a way it can be used against him?

The Darkest Shore is the second chapter of Nazi Zombies, and it releases first on PS4 Jan. 30. In addition to the horrific plot, the season pass content features three multiplayer maps and one War Mode map. For more details on those competitive multiplayer extras, click here.

Call Of Duty: WWII is available now on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The Resistance DLC can be pre-ordered as a standalone now.
