Activision and Sledgehammer Games today released a teaser trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's upcoming zombies mode, Exo Zombies. The trailer sets up the story, and reveals that the four survivors you'll play as are none other than virtual versions of John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan, and Jon Bernthal. Check out the trailer above to hear Malkovich deliver an emotional monologue.

Activision says the four survivors, who are members of the fictional military company Atlas, are "untrained and unpreprared." That's unfortunate, considering they're about to face off against a pack of nasty undead.

The first episode in the Exo Zombies season is included with January's Havoc expansion, which you can get through Advanced Warfare's $50 DLC pass or by itself for $15. The expansion also adds new multiplayer maps and weapons to the game.

This isn't the first time Activision has enlisted the help of celebrities to sell Call of Duty zombies DLC. Actors who played movie mobsters, including Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano, and Michael Madsen, have all appeared in past Call of Duty zombies content.
