There have been some weird and wonderful Call of Duty advertisement campaigns over the years, and arguably, the most head-scratching one yet has now given us a first glimpse at Modern Warfare 3 Zombies.

Call of Duty's ad campaigns have gotten the series into a bit of bother, as Modern Warfare 3 was broken to the world by a leaked Monster Energy campaign, and now, history is repeating itself.

Ahead of the Modern Warfare 3 showcase on October 5, a brand-new cereal campaign advert has offered an exclusive look into the undead game mode, although we're unsure that this is something you'd want to be thinking about whilst crunching on your breakfast.

Zombies is quickly becoming one of the most highly-anticipated elements of the October 5 CoD Next event, with fans dying to see how the franchise-first open-world mode will work

Now, Modern Warfare 3 Zombies has been showcased for the first time, as cereal brand Offlimits has teamed with Activision to make a themed breakfast munch.

From first impressions, this wacky crossover shows that the Zombies mode will be played out in the daytime, akin to Outbreak, although there will likely be some inside elements where darkness kicks in and jumpscares rise.

The moving corpses also appeared to be pretty mellow, although it could be a low round, which has spurred players on to think that MW3 Zombies will be easier than previous instalments. But maybe they want you to underestimate them...

Modern Warfare 3 Zombies will see Monkey Bombs return


As a staple of the Call of Duty Zombies mode, the classic Monkey Bombs have been confirmed to be back, playing as big a part as ever before.

The undead-distracting device appears to be back in its former glory, with the crazed monkey crashing the cymbals to attract hoards of zombies to it before dealing a devastating explosion. It should give players a few seconds of rest.

For those who are somewhat unsure about the open-world setting, at least there will be some element of training Zombies and blasting them into oblivion with the help of our mechanical sidekick.
