Zombies Mode confirmed for CoD Black Ops II
Mark Lamia, the Studio Head at Treyarch, has confirmed that Zombies Mode will be reanimating on Call of Duty: Black Ops II this November in an interview with VentureBeat:
The multiplayer is pretty big and ambitious. And they really are creating another game with the Zombies there.
While that little tidbit of information would ordinarily be big news, CVG has ferreted out the first details of Zombies Mode and they are impressive.
Eight players will be able to take on the zombie menace in Black Ops II (up from four in the original Black Ops). With an increased player count, you can expect an increased zombie count as well: “Treyarch will be using the game’s improved multiplayer engine for zombies, which means double the amount of shuffling corpses to sink your bullets into.”
But I think the money quote is this one from CVG’s man on the inside: “Treyarch [has] given their zombie team free reign to do pretty much whatever they want with the mode regardless of the direction the campaign is headed in.”
In case you haven’t heard, Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on November 13.
