On Wednesday, Treyarch announced first details for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, including the fact that zombies will make a return for the series’ newest entry.

Zombies is a mode that’s been a hallmark of the Treyarch Call of Duty games for over a decade, starting with Call of Duty: World at War. The mode generally involves players — either alone or in co-op — defending an area from hordes of undead enemies. Players earn cash for every kill they get, which they can use to buy weapons and power-ups for the increasingly-difficult waves of enemies.

While we didn’t get many actual details about the mode in the new game, Treyarch did share a few of its out-of-game features. Zombies in Black Ops Cold War will benefit from the game’s cross-generation cross-play feature, which will allow players on all consoles, both current generation and next generation, to play together.

Treyarch said it would share more zombies info sometime in the near future. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One on Nov. 13, and will be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X when those consoles launch during the holidays later this year.
