When you think Call of Duty: Black Ops, you think Call of Duty plus some zombies to kill. Well, the first Call of Duty title for the PS Vita, Call of Duty Black Ops: Declassified, will not have Zombies mode. The reason? For the developers to focus on the game's "core strengths".
These core strengths are of course the game's singleplayer and multiplayer. Activision rep Dan Amrich confirmed that Zombies mode will not be included to prioritize on the game's single player and multiplayer features. "This is the first Call of Duty game on Vita, and it needs to deliver on its core strengths - arguably, multiplayer gaming with twin-stick controls in a portable format," said Amrich.
For me, Black Ops won't be Black Ops without Zombies mode. But even with them stating that zombies has been removed to focus on more important features, they announce that Declassified will include a new mode called Hostiles Mode, which is you defeating waves of enemies.
But it looks like the game's developer, Nihilistic Software, would love to add it into the game. In a report coming from IGN, a Tweet from the developer says that "Only Activision and Sony have the power to greenlight Zombies mode for CoD Vita".
Still worth the buy now that Zombies mode won't make an appearance?
