Zombies developer Treyarch is aiming to create a unique undead experience despite the lack of a round-based map. Der Anfang launched without a main Easter Egg quest, Wonder Weapons, and no round-based action Zombies is synonymous with.
On February 8, Activision published a blog detailing the new content ranging from the return of classic Wonder Weapons to a brand-new Objective for players to complete.
Vanguard Zombies Season 2 Map
The multiplayer map of Red Star currently acts as a hub for each gateway in Der Anfang and in Season 2, a new experience called "Terra Maledicta" will arrive. Set in the Egyptian desert, players will access new gateways alongside the Dark Aether.
Within the Dark Aether is a "beachhead" where players can obtain a page from the Tome of Rituals.
Vanguard Zombies Season 2 Entities
The current chapter of the Dark Aether story involves players taking on an evil entity with the help of other supernatural beings that provide advantages. The latest to arrive is Vercanna the Last. Through the Wand of the Wilds Artefact, players can receive an instant boost of health through mystical beams of light. Check out the upgrade tiers for the ability below:
- Tier I (Base): The Wand of the Wilds summons Vercanna’s Life Energy to instantly heal yourself and allies to full health.
- Tier II: Knock down normal enemies and stun Special enemies near each player.
- Tier III: Revive all downed allies.
- Tier IV: Revived allies have their lost Perks returned.
- Tier V: The Life Energy persists at each player’s location for 10 seconds and continues to heal and revive players.
In addition to a new ally, a new villain has joined forces with Kortifex. Zaballa the Deceiver can bring players to their knees in an instant through electrical eruptions.
