Yeah, Zombies Will Be in CoD: Black Ops

Can somebody explain to me why we need zombies in our non-zombie games? I remember the first time I played the zombies mode in World At War, and I was like, “meh, I didn’t get this game because I want to kill zombies,” and then I never played it again.

However, we always sorta knew that someone at Treyarch or Activision, someone who undoubtedly makes more money than me, would decide it would be a good idea to put money and resources into a zombie co-op mode for their big blockbuster title for the year, and Treyarch’s Mark Lamia has confirmed that suspicion today.

Zombies have been such a hit with our community that we were committed to bringing brand new zombie experiences to Call of Duty: Black Ops. We’ve taken extra special care to retain the essential ingredients of our Zombie game, and have also crafted a nice surprise for the fans.

Co-op zombies! Yay! I’m not going to play this mode unless I’m really drunk (which I will be, and so I will play this mode.). But you guys have fun! I wonder what the nice surprise could be! Game’s out on everything on November 9.

We don’t need zombies in games. It’s bonus. You have an issue with multiple types of gameplay within a game? Really? More bang for your buck is a bad thing?

Zombies are fun. That’s all there is to it. Don’t complain about it because you’ve got a stick up your ass.

ha ha- guy rips on zombies and has never played it.. zombies would be the only reason id buy the new game.. i do not play mp much anymore- its all hacker cheats and lies.. i did not buy cod4mw or waw i read they was short sp games.. i got them with hardware. i did not buy the last game i read its short too.. being it might get zombies- i will get it when cheap.. as a fact lots of folks play zombies and from steam and xfire etc.

another reason why i do not play a lot of these mp games is. you cant play the maps solo and against just bots to practice and learn the maps- or best i know any way. that was 1 thing i really loved about ut04 and it had maybe 3000 maps and tons of skins and game modes and complete game change mods too. you could play ut3 the same way.. sometimes its no1 much playing- you can always play the bots and learn the maps etc..and in mp you always had bots to kill while the servers fills up with live human players.. most of these other games lack such things..

Ezeht, not only will Call of Duty Black Ops have zombies, they are adding a new feature called “Combat Training” where you can play against AI bots by yourself or with teammate(s). So you WILL be able to play the maps solo against bots to practice/learn the maps.

cool- now thats something i can look forwards too.. and is what makes nazi zombies cool. you can play the maps and zombies solo or co op. i think some of the maps are mp.. but i did not know for a long time it was new maps.. i just had the 1 map and had not been playing or read much to know it was patches that added maps- and then i found all the custom maps.. some are hard playing solo for sure.. i love nazi zombies..

I am not surprised that they added zombies to Black Ops because WAW was only the sucess it was because of zombies. Black Ops is going to make a ton of money now. They were before but i garantee that their sales have just went up just because of zombies. Halo won’t have on Black Ops. and to support my statement, let me just say that Black Ops already had more prepaid copies the first 2 weeks that you could then the day before halo came out. just face it. people love the Call of Duty games.

Zombies are the best thing to happen to Treyarch’s game.. Who doesn’t like hidden mini games? Nazi Zombies was the reason why i bought W@W

Yeah ‘cuz fun is for newbs right lol. What are we up to now CoD456789? I forget. It’s the same game everytime, just more/different weapons/maps/perks etc. Adding something simple and fun is a good thing and IMO adds value to the product. Plus it’s great fun when your too drunk to play TDM lol.
