The Modern Warfare III Reveal Event has finally taken place. New details about the campaign, multiplayer and Zombies has been shared by the teams over at Call of Duty. For the first time in the franchises history a Modern Warfare game will have a Zombies mode. But, if you are a fan of traditional round-based zombies don't get too excited just yet.

Sledgehammer's next title Modern Warfare III will have what is being referred to as Outbreak 2.0. If you played Black Ops Cold War you might remember this mode. It was basically an Open-World version of the Zombies mode on large maps.

The good news is that Treyarch Studios are leading development of this newest Zombies rendition. But, what do we know about the mode so far?
