Call of Duty: Black Ops is coming soon, and since this is a Treyarch developed Call of Duty, of course there’s a zombie mode. But no official word had surfaced on the details of the zombie mode in Black Ops, which has frustrated some fans of the game. Now there’s been a huge leak at Activision and the details on the zombie mode are finally out. Note:
EXTREME SPOILERS AWAIT
Now that that’s out of the way, here’s what the big secret is. In the zombie gameplay mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops, you aren’t killing zombies as faceless soldiers. In Black Ops zombie mode, you defend the Pentagon from hordes of zombies as John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Robert McNamara, and Fidel Castro… wow! When I first heard of this, I couldn’t believe it. The screenshots convinced me otherwise though.
Yeah. It’s awesome. The actual gameplay hasn’t changed that much from Nazi Zombies in World at War, but the characters’ contextual chatter is full of personality, and some pretty ridiculous lines fit the tone of the mode perfectly. The zombie mode will be unlocked after you beat the single player campaign, and if you buy the Hardened or Prestiege editions of Call of Duty: Black Ops, you’ll get 4 zombie maps from Call of Duty: World at War. There’s also some very interesting implications for singelplayer in this new mode. If Treyarch has a Richard Nixon, Fidel Castro, and Robert McNamara model lying around, won’t they be using them for singleplayer as well? Or did they just strongly feel that they should just use ex-presidents and leaders for their zombie mode? Anyway, part of me wishes that this wasn’t leaked, because it’s so awesome, but then again – I’m really happy that we now know something about the zombie mode.
