Black Ops 2 with Zombies is lifeblood for some
The recent announcement and visual tease into Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has started fans debating on the upcoming game with renewed insight, although the trailer didn’t go down well with everyone, which is surprising considering it has been long speculated that COD would jump into the future at some point.
Some things change and others stay just the same – while the year is moving to 2025 it seems the formula Call of Duty is known for will be pretty much the same, and this means multiplayer, a campaign, and zombies (something that made Black Ops unique in our opinion). While we keep hearing that multiplayer is the “lifeblood” for any COD game, it’s our feeling that for Black Ops 2 it’s zombies that will help the game deliver where MW3 fell short.
Those of you hoping for graphics that take a massive jump are surly out of luck, Treyarch knows that the current formula is what helps the franchise break records and they’re likely to stick to it, no matter how many people are claiming to move to other games like Battlefield. Although it’s worth pointing out Treyarch like to change as much as they can within that formula, so we expect some exciting enhancements.
Zombies will be expanded – if you’re a fan of zombies from Black Ops then you’ll love the next game, and while little has been said about this part of Black Ops 2, you can count on more options and expanded features that are sure to be the only reason some people buy the next COD game. Even during MW3’s successful release and the months following we found loads of comments from gamers playing the zombie mode still in Black Ops, and for some they played MW3 and later returned to Black Ops just for zombies. It’s well known that the success of this little zombie addition surprised the developers, but it seems the mode is something that could bring an army of fans to the next Call of Duty game, and plenty of these didn’t even buy MW3.
How much did you love the zombies mode in Black Ops, is this something you missed in the last Call of Duty game? If you’ve not seen the recent Black Ops 2 trailer then watch the video below.
