4th Nazi Zombie Level Coming for CoD:WaW

Hmmm ... let's see. Left 4 Dead four levels of Zombie mayhem. Call of Duty: World at War four levels of Zombie mayhem. Sadly, no matter how much we love L4D, we have to concede that with the addition of the new Zombie map “Der Riese”, COD:WaW levels the playing field a bit in terms of pure co-op against the living dead fun.
