Modern Warfare II’s Haunting starts now with surprise guests stars like Evil Dead’s Ash, Hellsing’s Alucard and more

There’s a heck of a lot of cool horror stuff happening as a part of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II’s just-launched Season 06.

Good, bad, I’m the guy with the gun

Okay so the version of Ash Williams in Call of Duty’s new Season 06 is from Evil Dead II and not Army of Darkness, but you get the idea.

And if you’re as big of a fan of the horror-hero as we are, then he’s probably enough to get you pumped for the FPS’ latest content drop as anything else. But before you run over to your platform of choice and buy the new season, there’s quite a bit more that you’d probably like to know about as well.

For one thing, Ash isn’t alone in terms of guest stars. Masters of the Universe’s own Lord of Destruction Skeletor is included too, along with Todd McFarlane’s Spawn and Clown, Inarius and Lilith from Diablo, and Alucard from the iconic anime Hellsing.

Want more? Well, that’s good if you do because there’s a ton of new zombies stuff, including the new Vondead map, plus fresh rewards and a certain chainsaw from a certain ID Software FPS…

Yeah, sorry we forgot to warn you about the uh… The Butcher. But there’s even more than all of that, so scroll down to check out what’s hit for which game, and then head on over to the official Call of Duty Blog for the full rundown.

In Warzone:

  • Welcome to Vondead: A demonic incantation unleashed an uncontained zombie outbreak across Vondel. The undead have ravaged the streets under a bloodred moon. Shocking secrets are waiting to be discovered!
  • Zombie Royale is back on Al Mazrah and Vondel: Tear into this infamous limited-time mode, with all-new innovations but the same chaotic premise — return to battle as a fast-moving Zombie. Survive, or get eaten!
  • Operation Nightmare is a GO: Investigate sinister anomalies across the map, and face a host of monstrous targets as you gradually clear a Bounty board of otherworldly terrors!
  • Lockdown returns, otherworldly loot, and events: Head to Vondel for more Lockdown action, gather Souls for in-game rewards, and prepare for plenty of jump scares, eldritch equipment, and much more.

In Modern Warfare II:

  • Two Haunting Map reskins. El Asilo celebrates Día de Muertos, while Embassy becomes the site of a bloody zombie attack.
  • A frightening twist on classic modes. Jump scares, skulls, zombies, and more descend on your favorite classic modes, including twisted takes on Domination, Kill Confirmed, Grind, Drop Zone, and Infected.
