Activision has announced that zombie mode included with Black Ops’ Escalation Map Pack is not only titled Call of the Dead, but it stars horror vet George Romero in it, among others.

Other stars include The Walking Dead’s resident racist thug, Michael Rooker, as well as Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robert Englund, and Robert Rodriguez’s cousin and go-to guy, Danny Trejo.

“Our latest zombie creation, Call of the Dead, is unreal,” said Treyarch head Mark Lamia. “We set out to create an exciting new zombie experience for fans of the genre that takes Zombies to an insane new level.”

“This is Treyarch’s tribute to the legendary George Romero, who truly defined the zombie genre and whose incredible work has been such an inspiration to our team,” added the game’s director Dave Anthony. “It was an absolute honor to work with such an amazing and talented cast whose passion and energy brought their characters instantly to life. Fans are going to love this.”

The Call of the Dead zombie level will launch first on Xbox Live May 3 with the Escalation Map Pack.

No word yet on when it will hit PC and PS3.
