If you have been frantically searching for any recent developments for Call of Duty: Black Ops, you won’t need us to tell you that last night a video showing the secret co-op mode called Dead Ops Arcade was revealed for the first time.
Of course this alleged new mode has yet to be officially confirmed by either Treyarch or Activision, as Activision are still lurking around YouTube to swiftly remove any unofficial Black Ops content that appears before the November 9th launch date.
Providing that this new mode is real, we want to know your first impressions of it, considering it is a pretty drastic move by Treyarch to include a entirely different concept to their hugely popular zombie franchise. The leaked video we saw shows a ‘Smash TV’ style interface in which players will have to fend off waves of zombies, collecting powerups and different weapons as they go along.
Further details we’ve heard is that this new Dead Ops Arcade mode will also include support for co-op, but again this isn’t confirmed and we don’t know if it will be local op, or online co-op. Considering that the game may include two new ‘standard zombie levels’ and this brand new zombie arcade mode, you have to say that Treyarch has done a great job with the new stuff.
They could of charged extra for Dead Ops if they wanted to, or even saved it as paid DLC shortly after release. Hopefully Treyarch will confirm this new mode for us soon so we can really provide a full breakdown for you. For those of you who have managed to see Dead Ops Arcade – what are your first impressions of it? – Do you like it or not?
