With the release date of Black Ops 2 rapidly approaching, many Call of Duty fans have been impatiently waiting for more information about the game. At Gamescom this past week, Treyarch has released numerous details about Black Ops 2 multiplayer. Even though it’s exciting to hear about all of this, there is still one thing that is on everyone’s mind and that’s Zombie Mode.
No official trailer has been released for Zombies, however, there was an interview recently conducted with Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. The interview gives us a basic overview of what to expect with Zombies this time around. As expected, it was confirmed that a detailed trailer revolved around Zombie Mode will be released in the near future (no specific date was stated).
In the interview, Lamia tells us that Zombies will be bigger in every way. He revealed that not only will the world be bigger, but there will also be new gameplay mechanics embedded within this game mode. Treyarch stated that they wanted to make sure that they didn’t take away from the essence of the Zombie Mode that is beloved by millions. Instead, they added on to it, giving it much more depth. Lamia said that there are many different ways to approach Zombies, “the strategies in this one are going to blow your mind.” He also confirmed the rumors that there will not only be the original four player mode, but an eight player mode as well. According to the interview, Treyarch likes to call the eight player mode “4z4.” Lamia didn’t go into any more detail than that but is it possible that this means there will be four players on a team pitted against four other players in the midst of a zombie apocolypse? Or does this mean that four of the eight will be able to play as zombies? As of now, all we can do is speculate and wait for the official reveal of Black Ops 2 Zombie Mode.
I know some of these details were briefly mentioned a couple of months ago, but I wanted to share this information with the masses since it’s all confirmed in this very recent interview with Mark Lamia at Gamescom. I don’t know about you guys, but I couldn’t be more excited to start mowing down those undead mobs. What do all of you think? Are there any particular changes that you believe they should make to Zombie Mode?
