Call of Duty Black Ops: World Premiere – Zombie Mode?

Now that we have had the world’s first reveal trailer for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops title – we can’t help but feel that one main addition was missing from the trailer – the possible mention of zombie mode.

It is no secret that Nazi Zombies in CoD: World at War was the best thing in the game, as if offered gamers a completely different experience from the usual single and multiplayer modes.

As we watched the trailer and in turn the new characters and weapons, there was no mention of a return for zombies. Has Treyarch decided that a zombie mode does not ‘fit’ into the Black Ops title, or are they saving a reveal for E3 in June.

Hopefully it is the latter, as I have to say that I was a big fan of the zombie mode in WaW. A future CoD title from Treyarch without zombie mode just doesn’t feel right now.

Maybe the team are planning a standalone release for their zombie add-on, separate from the Black Ops disc, or it could come as future DLC content. Now that would be something to look forward to.

Give us your thoughts on this. Were you disappointed in no zombies during the trailer, or are you more concerned about the core single and multiplayer elements of the game?

Zombies is confirmed, the only thing I'm concerned about is if it will come out as DLC at a later date or not because I never pre-ordered the Hardened or Prestige addition.

if you have a pc you don't need zombie mode, just go buy killing floor for 20 dollars, of course you can't if you only have the consoles. Killing floor is like zombie mode except with a ton of different levels and ten times more fun.

I'll only buy it if it has zombies, otherwise forget it, multiplayer first operson shooters is old hat, seen it, played it, done it, yawn. Its the same old boring repetitive stuff.

What Treyarch should have done is built zombies into the black ops single player storyline, with missions to stop dirty gook charlie VC experimenting with the old Nazi technolgy

if they put zombies in i hope it will be 4 player split screen and it would be a bonus if they made the maps bigger and tougher so more players can play at once online

they HAVE to bring it out cos if they dont i dont see the point in bringing out black ops. it would be gr8 if they either brought out black ops without but it came with a bounes game nazi zombies, a full length game like survive 10 rounds and save the children from being attaked and bounes mod ' BE A ZOMBIE' how cool would that be.

to those of you who say they won't buy the game if it doesn't have zombies…. grow up. you whining spoiled children and your desperate pleads for zombies. Its a game about the cold war. Nazi zombies fit the bill because every sci fi ww2 movie talks about the ss secret projects or whatever. Treyarch capitilized on it. Now they could say the russians were redoing the project, but whatever. You people who "won't buy the game" are just as bad as the left 4 dead 2 boycott. it would be nice with zombies but isn't a requirement. By the… Read more »

I love zombies as much as the next guy, but have you thought about how many people won't buy it if it has zombies. Say 100,000 people played zombies online. How many people are offline gamers. They wouldn't care about zombies. They would play left 4 dead or something. There are more then 100,000 offline gamers. some would still buy it, but most would do it for the campaign. Now how many people think it's distastful. Running around with idiots that believe in one golden hiding place and can't be talked out of it as they let your happy face… Read more »

i think zombies might be a good idea new weapons to kill them with its gonna be fun it will be good if you could drive vehicles and make the maps really big so theres enough room for people to play online theres could be three squads that spawn in different places and they could decide where to go to hold out you could also build your own barricades and introduce tougher harder to kill zombies and zombie dogs for a challenge i think that if all that is in the game it will be the best game of maybe… Read more »

If they don’t put zombies I’ll have a 50% chance not gonna buy it, mainly cuz when I played Nazi zombies offline I got addicted & then wen I made it to lvl 50 on xbox live I was addicted even more. Mw2 was fun for bout 3 hours and then I. Became the same routine over and over, and infinity ward sucks. Trayarch FTW!

Call of duty World at war 2!! What a money maker that would be, after all the black ops game comes out and after they know people have experienced every part of it, they should carry on exactly where it left of from WaW. The first zombie map could be Dempsey and the rest of them getting out and just getting surrounded or some shit ? Who knows lol, Anything but if they create a 'WaW 2' They would APPSOLUTLEY rake the money in, standard !!

yeah i agree with zombie killer i mean yeah its a new game different kind of story mode that some of us dont even know what its about… but yeah zombies would be great for the game… matter of fact it would be awesome… see i have a ps3 and everyday i get on there is like a lot of people play cause zombies are awesome… im a great friend of zombie mode its good for the game but if it was in black ops… it would be better, different maps, different guns, different things to encounter… but some people… Read more »

im not even buying the game if theres no zombie mode and i know of atleast 12 other people who are doing the same, zombies what the only reason i played WaW and is the only reason i continue to do so. Treyarch cant make somthing as good as zombies and leave it out of there new game, this game, black ops has to have zombie mode, if not i have no faith left in humanity

The Only reason I got WaW was because of Zombies. I thought that the game would be boring because honestly…I was getting tired of WWII games. But sense the zombie mode was in it, I had to buy it…and I love it! That's all i play! There had better be zombies!

People who think Treyarch are copying infinity ward are wrong. Hw did waw copy cod4? they use the same engine. oh, and this game will fail without zombies. and if waw zombies was a last minuite addition then this zombies could be epic!

Josg

that trailer was for the campain only, and the reveal wouldnt show bonus mode. According to Wiki COD when wiki asked treyarch about if there will be zombies, they replied we are not allowed to talk about out their coop hinting that there is zombies. I think they should put all of the zombie story in there and finish put in area 51, or w/e activision didn’t let them put up for dlc last time.

nazi zombies PLEASE

i would really like a zombie mode or a terrorist mode in cod black ops they should have a island starter mode for zombies with all the weapons and terrorist mode should have mafia yakuzza or special ops mode with army rangers navy seals and stuff like that

Actually, if they did a standalone game, that would mean an awesome storyline, awesome weapons, more monkeys, even tastier waffles, and hopefully some even cooler stuff than before. But nothing beats waffles and monkeys.

yeah mw2 basically destroyed my life when it had no zombies. They said they didn't want to copy anything as treyarch does, but really? treyarch clearly doesn't copy if they made zombies. My guess is if we don't find out by july than they probably won't directly tell anyone, you'll just have to wait till you beat the game

Tom Brading

I was hugely disappointed that MW2 didn't follow the genius of Treyarch's Zombie mode and being a massive fan myself I would love to see a more refurbished mode of zombies, better gore, more weapons old returns of the pack-a-punch and also ray gun and wunderwaffe =] .

Instead of asking yourself IF Black Ops will have zombies, try asking why the HELL they wouldn't. Nazi Zombies was the 1 thing that kept 1000s of players playing WaW, myself included. How could they resist putting zombies in Black Ops? It would make the game sell at least 5 times as more!
but instead of just 2 player co op hop put 4 player offline… when u did waw u put 2 add 2 more an new map an guns

First off all the bagging on MW2 is not really needed you have to rember that the game was nothing like its kind and will have flaws in its first run through so just like that orignal nintendo it has flaws but is still fun infeaty ward will fix that in there next game. Second off there will be zombies treyarch will put zombies in the game because, they have monitored the game play and see that zombies was the man play in the game and if you look i dont have a ps3 but the 360 still has multipule… Read more »

in my opninion they have to realse it, if they dont why did they say it will take 7 years in the making(or something like that on a transmition on der reise.) so 7 years of cod = cod 7, also why would they have left the end trailer on der reise? unless there planning something where demsy and nikolie die? come on i doubt it ffs RELEASE COD ZOMBIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MW2 sucks for everything. The SinglePlayer was good but short. Mulitplayer blows. HACKERS every game. The PC verison sucks dicks. Laggy every game. DC everytime. 15 DOLLARS for DLC bs. I already gave you 60 bucks for a game a 1st grader could make with chalk. Guns are imbalanced.

they will corner yje gaming market if they put more zombie modes in black ops if they dont and the game does not sell as well as the rest they could always just put more levels on WaW and would still make there money if theres no zombies im not buying simple as that wana play zombies on ps3 abdul-aka-peedi only send text if you have reached 32 or higher

If the creators of Black Ops are reading this I really hope they understand that some of us just will not buy this game if they don't have a zombie mode. Most fans of MOD bought WAW because they thought that it would be a new MOD, they were wrong and many went back to MOD. Now they are on the lookout for the same thing to happen so I understand that Treyarch has to put them on top and work really hard on the multiplayer because they are most of the fan base, but the reason why the some… Read more »

Zombies is a definent must. I loved zombies in WaW and i think if they had zombies in this game with a mix of both ww2 and modern weapons, that would be awesome. to be completely honest if treyarch released a zombies only game with like 10 maps spanning the ww2->modern day eras, i would totally pay 60 bucks for it. i literally spent more hours playing zombies than i did regular multiplayer in WaW

cane

well hopefully they dont hold out on us ive been waitin for it sence MW2 i miss the zombies an want them back an i know i miss with a team of 35 players an we all love zombies so they should bring it back an keep it jus the way it was just with more interesting bopards an maybe bigger 1s with more perks guns an ofcourse the pack a punch machine so come on treyarch dont dissappoint us

Carl Hatton

I am really hoping that they develop the zombie mode even further, perhaps have it so its more of a story mode than survival, clues and puzzles needing to be solved, different paths that people can take, depending on there strategy, and maybe even bosses. Because I think I speak for all of us when no matter how hard we try in getting to higher levels, there will also be glitchers who spoil the leader boards. Anyway For the multiplayer mode, I've thought of a few good perks in which I think would be really cool; Hijack Perk (Steal /… Read more »

Honestly, there's not a DOUBT IN MY MIND that Treyarch will put zombies in Black Ops. It would be almost bad buisness if they didn't. WE WANT MORE ZOMBIES!!!!

BETTER HAVE ZOMBIES!! When i got my PS3 MW2 was already out so i bought that instead of WaW… But when i went to my buddy house they where playing the zombie mode, I was like what game is this it hella bad ass!! They told me it was the older COD. i went out and bought the game just for the zombie mode!! that how awesome ZOMBIE MODE is!! i also think zombie mode helps your reaction time in the real game, training your movement also at higher sensitivity!! good training for 360 head shots and those crazy kills… Read more »

Hank

Obviouslly, zombies is required to be put into the game. It is probable that it will be confirmed during june, as of E3. If they took out zombies, much of the WaW Fans probably wouldn't buy the game. I've heard that they had originally created another zombies map on WaW but were unable to release it due to the fact that MW2 was out.. So, since they are under similar titles, but seperate companies, they were unable to release the DLC. Perhaps, this same map will be involved in Black OPs?

What do you guys think..?

I was hoping to see some images of a zombie mode in the reveal trailer.I was also not expecting it bcuz the main reveal trailers trying to capture the MW2 crowd. At least 1/3 to 1/2 of MW2 crowd has played Nazi Zombies& loved it.Treyarch is trying to capture all MW2 owners with main focus of the game, Cold War era & the secret Ops. 2 things to remind you all of:1. In Der Riese remember one of the radio transmissions telling of the other source of 115 at the nevada base. That is so leaving the story line open… Read more »

The Game HAS to have zombies…thats whats seperates WaW from a game like mw2 which is a good game, but still hasn't achieved a level of interaction equal to a Zombie Horde Mode…………It would be a HUGE marketing mistake for them to consider not referbishing the zombie mode in a more modern setting an maybe expand a little with all the potential a mode like Nazi Zombies creates
