Today Activision have released a new trailer to clear up any misconceptions and confirm that Exo Zombies will have it own mode and will ship with the 1st DLC for all consoles.
The trailer is just the zombies cutscene, but towards the end of the video text saying a new breed of zombies pops up which is evidently trying to separate the mode from Treyarch’s signature zombie game mode.
Activision have also confirmed that the mode will have a wave of new information and it will be available in the coming weeks and will showcase more gameplay of this new breed of zombie. And after the taster we received in a bonus wave in Exo survival the mode will most definitely be unique addition to Advanced Warfare. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGVxcwdqqAg
