We have been keeping you up to date with Mob of the Dead zombie news, and now Treyarch has finally decided to reveal some official gameplay at last. Previously, their Black Ops 2 Mob of the Dead zombies teaser was only available on Xbox Live after the COD Championships, but now the video is available to view for all.
More importantly, it gives you a fantastic gameplay preview of some of the new features that will be available in the new zombies map. We have already told you about the Blundergat wonder weapon, as well as the new Electric Cherry perk machine. Now Treyarch has confirmed that the Blundergat can be upgraded and that there will be a new type of zombie boss to contend with as well.
If you watch the video, you’ll see that a rather large Alcatraz Warden has been sighted at the 4.55 mark into the video. Not only will he chase you down in an intimidating fashion, but he will also ‘lock down’ any boxes or perk machines that he runs past as well. Once he has done this, your team will then have to pay an extra fee to access it again – another interesting idea to shake up gameplay.
We can also confirm early rumors that one of the main objectives of Mob of the Dead will be to collect parts, which will ultimately be assembled to build a plane so you can escape off the island at the end of the game. We understand that this will be a side mission quest in the game, so it could also be related to the main Easter Egg as well.
There will obviously still be unlimited waves to get through though, so it will be interesting to see how the escape off the island on a plane mission works. Watch the behind the scenes preview now and let us know what you think about it. We’ll be bringing you some information on the Mob of the Dead Easter Egg as soon as we get it.
