Earlier today we told you that the Annihilation pack DLC release date seemed set for Xbox 360, now details are beginning to emerge about the zombie map which this DLC will bring.
According to PCGamer Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia has said that the Annihilation DLC will bring a new zombie map which is set in Shangri-La, he says that it is an “exotic and mysterious map filled with deadly traps, dark secrets and innovative gameplay that will challenge even the most daring Zombie hunters”. For those of you who don’t know Shangri-La has a similar meaning to the Garden of Eden, one definition of Shangri-La says it is “A place regarded as an earthly paradise, esp. a retreat from modern civilization”.
If you have been playing Call of the Dead you will know that there are no traps (unless you consider the flipper a form of trap) on the map, this is pretty much the only way you can criticize this Zombie map, so perhaps Treyarch has noticed this and will bring plenty of traps next time around, Lamia’s statement certainly suggests this.
We wonder if George A. Romero will be making another appearance, perhaps this time you will have to use traps to calm him down rather than water, if Romero does make an appearance we think it is very likely that you will play as either Danny Trejo, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robert Englund or Michael Rooker once again.
We still have two weeks to wait for this DLC so hopefully we will find out more about this zombie map soon, in the mean time why not share your ideas, predictions and wishes in the comments section below. What do you want from this new zombie map?
We now know that lots of this information is true thanks to the official trailer being released (watch it here), we can also confirm that there appears to be the perk stealing monkeys we saw on the Ascension zombie map and a new type of fire zombie. The video also clearly shows that George Romero, Danny Trejo, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robert Englund and Michael Rooker won’t be making an appearance this time.
