Unannounced Black Ops 2 multiplayer features and content

During our Eurogamer experience yesterday, we looked at the queue for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 game and asked whether we would get the chance to play the eagerly anticipated zombie title. After being told that this aspect was not available to play only a couple of my fellow gamers decided they still wanted to check it out, and because we were so intent on zombies we thought we would rather wait until we could play all parts of the game.

News on the multiplayer features and the content involved has been hard to get hold of, and some recently unannounced details give us cause to stand up and pay attention (well, sit up anyway). A video shown on Examiner looks into a few new game modes, and it is intriguing to see that Treyarch are moving forward with the zombies section overhauling this part with three different game types. It seems that two different survival modes are expected, known as “Grief and Tranzit,” and the reveal trailer concentrates mainly on the latter, which allows players to experience various locations throughout their journey, while defending each area as the go about their business.

From what is shown in the video, it looks like players will be transported to their destination on a bus that is being constantly attacked by zombies. The mode know as Grief will revolve around a competitive game involving up to eight players divided into two teams, which are expected to survive the longest though the zombie orientated levels, much like the classic style. The company has revealed loads of new features that will be implemented including leader boards, stat tracking and custom games, along with a more extensive view of player stats.

Apparently, players will also get the opportunity to create custom Zombie Mode game types, and the chance to choose what round they want to begin at, as well as changing the setting of certain challenges, like a “Headshots Only” mode. Adding more hype to these unannounced reports, Gaming Illustrated has an in-depth article about the battle perks involved in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and they highlight the chance to compete and win some great prizes that go beyond unlocked maps and guns. Stuff like custom controllers, games, and gift cards are also on offer giving some gamers cause to take Black Ops 2 more seriously.

With this in mind, our most recent COD post spoke about how Activision is taking the Wii U version of Black Ops 2 seriously, with the introduction of it being available in 1080p Full HD, although many Xbox 360 and PS3 gamers are not overly impressed with this news. Going back to the original source, will you be buying Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 mainly because of the zombie action?
