Zombies, everybody loves zombies again. After making a comeback in the early 2000s with films like the remake of Dawn of the Dead and 28 Days Later (technically not a Zombie film but…), looks like these maggot-filled corpses plan not only on staying but in dominating other media as well. Case in point, Call of Duty will have another zombie mode in the series’ highly anticipated new entry, Black Ops 2.
Some days back, we got a brief glimpse of what Treyarch was planning for Black Ops 2’s zombie mode. Today we’ve got the details!
While zombies have made an appearance in other Call of Duty games, IGN reports that ‘Tranzit,’ the new zombie mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, brings with it some interesting new changes:
“The biggest change to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’s Zombie gameplay comes in the form of its campaign mode. Titled Tranzit, this tosses you and up to three of your friends into the biggest world the team at Treyarch has ever created for Zombies. Your goal in Tranzit is simple: kill all the undead that you come across and leave a trail of bodies in your wake. You and your team jump between a number of locales along the way, doing what appears to be defensive stands and clearing them out before moving on to the next place. However, getting from place to place isn’t a simple loading screen, but instead requires you to get there by foot or by bus. It’s unclear whether or not you’ll be able to steer the bus, but the first trailer makes it pretty clear you’ll be defending yourself and perhaps even building barricades in order to survive the journey between survival spots.”
Tranzit will also feature “buildables,” a new game element which Treyarch says will allow players to construct new things that will open up sections of the game world or give players powerful new weapons to deal with the zombie threat. Sounds like something straight out of Capcom’s Dead Rising series, if you ask me.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 hits stores on November 13th.
