You into zombie slaying? Yea sure you are! Why do you think there's tons of zombie games out now. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 comes out on November, and just like the first game, it will have its very own zombies mode. Treyarch has finally spilled the beans on the changes to Zombies, plus a trailer featuring one of the three game modes for zombies.
Above is a game mode called Tranzit, a campaign mode that lets you and three friends ride a bus heading to location after location picking up supplies and killing zombies. When reaching each location, you are tasked to hold off the incoming zombie horde until you are allowed to move on to the next area. To travel to the next area, you can go by bus or by foot, and the zombies won't stop coming, so holding the horde off continue even as you go forward.
It's a good change, but just in case you want the traditional horde-like mode seen in the first game, they have that too. Survival mode is all about survival. Building defenses and pretty much see how long you guys can last. No word yet on the changes done, but its good to know they didn't scrap the old for the new.
Were not done yet, there's still one more mode to be introduced, and this one is a bit more in the competitive side. The last mode is called Grief. It's a 4 versus 4 match where you try to outlive your competition. You can't kill each other the conventional way, what you can do though is make the zombies do the killing for you. Of course, they haven't went into much detail on how you get to do that. I can already imagine hilarious moments coming out of Grief mode.
Looks like Treyarch put a lot of thought into Zombies this time around. Three game modes for zombies? Sounds good to me.
I have pretty high expectations for Black Ops 2. I bought the first game mainly because of Zombies, but to my surprise it turned out to be one of the best Call of Duty games I've ever played. I Was not feeling the whole futuristic setting for the sequel, but the changes in Zombies got me back into the hype. Oh and multiplayer? Been there, done that.
