The latest news on Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies revealed some exciting developments for a fan-favorite World at War map potentially returning.
The trailer didn’t just reveal information and details about the story direction, it also hinted at a fan-favorite map returning.
Vanguard Zombies will launch with a new mode called “Der Anfang,” which is said to combine the classic round-based format with features seen in Black Ops Cold War‘s Zombies and some new innovative mechanics that haven’t been seen before in Zombies.
As we know, the mode will be created by Treyarch, but in the Vanguard/Modern Warfare engine, and it will carry on the Dark Aether storyline introduced in Cold War.
During the trailer, it’s clear that players will be going through rifts and traveling across various maps to complete challenges.
One of the maps the players in the trailer travel to is a classic from World at War, Shi No Numa.
In Der Anfang, not only will players be battling hoards of Zombies in areas exclusive to Vanguard, but also the swamps of Shi No Numa, and who knows, maybe even more classic Zombies maps.
Shi No Numa is a great Zombies map to bring back into the Zombies mode for Call of Duty, allowing those new players to experience a classic map and giving those dedicated fans a nostalgia trip.
This particular map was one of the first that helped put Call of Duty Zombies on the map and become the global success it has been over the years, with Vanguard taking the franchise back to World War II and Treyarch leading the development of the game’s Zombies mode. Shi No Numa is a perfect choice for incorporating classic areas into the franchise’s latest game.
