Call of the Dead

The next piece of downloadable content for the record-breaking Call of Duty: Black Ops is getting a little help from some famous friends.

Danny Trejo (Machete), Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead) and Robert "Freddy Krueger" Englund are featured characters in 'Call of the Dead,' a new mode included in the upcoming 'Escalation' content pack releasing May 3 for Xbox 360.

Inspired by the works of legendary zombie director George Romero -- who also puts in an appearance -- the new game mode sees players battling hordes of corpses on a snowy Siberian island. And in keeping with their new tradition of stylish Call of Duty trailers, Activision has released a video that would make Robert Rodriguez proud.

(Warned: filled with lots of zombie killing mayhem. Viewer discretion advised.)
