Zombies Confirmed For Call Of Duty: Black Ops

Confirming what it calls one of the "worst kept secrets", the makers of the next Call of Duty said today that you'll be able to shoot zombies in Call of Duty: Black Ops in the game's four-player co-op mode.

The November-scheduled Black Ops is being made by Treyarch, the studio that tucked a zombie-shooting mode in its previous game, 2008's Call of Duty: World at War. The zombie mode was popular enough to spawn iPhone spin-offs.

Black Ops is set during the Cold War, a period of world history that was zombie-free, but zombies were nonetheless expected and their inclusion leaked earlier this week. The official news today doesn't say zombies will be in the main singleplayer storyline campaign, but locks them in for a four-player co-op mode.

Treyarch boss Mark Lamia said in a press release today that the studio has "taken extra special care to retain the essential ingredients of our Zombie game and have also crafted a nice surprise for the fans".

Guess on the surprise? Zombie Kennedy and Zombie Castro?

    I must be the only person who doesn't want a zombie killing mode in my serious war game. Way to ruin the immersion.

      Then don't play the zombie killing part of the game?

      Serious? Call of Duty? You've got to be kidding me right? lol :D The level of fun to be had killing zombies in a SEPERATE game mode is astounding. :)

      Have you played Nazi Zombies in World at War? :O

      Then don't play COD for your "serious war game"...

      hahaha he called call of duty a serious war game.

        When you said that I realised it had to be a troll.

    For me it added a lot to the replayability of [email protected] Sure i enjoyed the campaign (more so then MW2) and the multiplayer as well, but Zombie mode made sure i played this game for a lot longer then i ever expected to play it.

      Honestly, I thought it was by far the best part of the game which was otherwise just Modern Warfare in WW2... again.

    "Treyarch boss Mark Lamia said in a press release today that the studio has “taken extra special care to retain the essential ingredients of our Zombie game and have also crafted a nice surprise for the fans”."

    That to me sounds like new levels! Last I heard was they were going to be the same maps as in WAW. Awesome! :D
