When it comes to the Zombies game mode offshoot of the Call of Duty franchise, one of the biggest pulls for the mode has been the consistent stellar cast of characters, and Call of Duty: WW2 is going to be no exception. Already, it has been confirmed that former Doctor Who David Tennant will be in Call of Duty: WW2 Zombies, and now an extremely prolific horror actor has been added to the mix.
The actor in question is Udo Kier, who will no doubt be very familiar to horror fans in general. Over the years, Kier has appeared in large number of horror movies, ranging from classics like Suspiria, high profile releases such as Blade and the 2007 Halloween remake, and cult movies like One Point O and Shadow of the Vampire. Now, Call of Duty: WW2 is being added to Kier’s significant roster.
The news was announced over on the official Call of Duty Twitter page, revealing Kier’s role as Doktor Peter Glucksbringer Straub, who according to information gleaned from the Call of Duty Zombies ARG seems to play a rather significant role in the plot. More will no doubt be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con where the full reveal will take place, as teased by the Twitter post itself.
In 2 days, new horrors will be unleashed.

This is not the only time that Udo Kier has been involved in something related to video games, either. Previously, the actor had appeared in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, for instance, taking on the role of Yuri. As a perhaps more infamous example, however, Kier also acted in Uwe Boll’s notoriously poor film adaptation of Far Cry, which was released in 2008.
So far, the Zombies portion of Call of Duty: WW2 seems to be shaping up nicely, at least when it comes to a cast perspective. Alongside Tennant and Kier, the Zombies mode has had some other cast members announced, including Katheryn Winnick from Vikings and Elodie Yung, who plays Elektra in Daredevil.
All in all, then, the cast of Call of Duty: WW2 Zombies seems to have a very strong balance, although how it appears in the final release remains to be seen. With the Comic-Con reveal coming very soon, however, expect a big update on the status of the game mode then.
Call of Duty: WW2 will launch on November 3, 2017, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
