When Call of Duty’s DLC ‘Escalation’ announced it’s all star cast for zombies level Call of the Dead, pop culture fans rejoiced with glee. I would know, I was one of them screaming with excitement, and if you don’t believe me, you can see so here! Well now, the four playable characters Danny Trejio, Michael Rooker, Robert Englund and Sarah Michelle Gellar have spoken out in interviews which have appeared on gen16com’s youtube channel. Unfortunately, no interview with the antagonist, legendary God of all Zombies George A. Romero has not apparelled in an interview yet. There is also behind-the-scenes footage of vocal recordings, and motion capture footage. Yeah, thats right! To my surprise, and Im sure many of yours as well, it is revealed that the actors actually acted using motion capture, rather than animation, so players really are controlling the movements of the actors they play as, making it more authentic, and really showing off the amount of hard work put into this one, simple level! Truly impressive.
I’d also like to mention another thing I found impressive-just how enthusiastic all four of them seem in the interviews. I don’t think I’ve ever seen actors so eager to answer questions, and they all laugh the whole time like they truly are enjoying themselves, making them all very entertaining to watch! Surprisingly, they each all have stories to tell about Call of Duty from their personal lives, and the history a few of them have with each other, and how much fun they’ve had on the project. A great watch if your a fan of any of these actors, or the Call of the Dead zombies map!
