Fortunately, Trey arch promises more details tomorrow in the big Day 115 intel dump. Plenty of other games followed suit to create engaging horde modes that could rival the addictive nature of Call of Duty Zombies.
Its adrenaline-pumped action and unique settings make it distinct from the dozens of filler game modes on the market. Updated September 17th, 202 by Johnny Garcia: The next installment of Treyarch's Call of Duty has been announced with Black Ops: Cold War.
With the conclusion of the Ether storyline, Cold War will pave the way for an entirely new generation of Zombies. The Black Ops 2 launch of Zombies was not well-received, from the clunky Transit to the underwhelming Die Rise.
Artur allowed the players to do things never previously possible, from locking down the Mystery Box to changing Power-Ups. While Black Ops 4 suffered from a rather shaky start, IX would be the diamond in the rough.
A gladiator Colosseum is one of the unique settings for Zombies, and it made for one of the best maps Black Ops 4 had to offer. Call of the Dead was the first Zombies map to utilize a celebrity cast, consisting of Danny Trejo, Sarah Michelle Cellar, Robert England, Michael Booker, and George A. Romero.
It was the first time a major Easter Egg could be done solo, and completing it rewarded the player with a Wunderwaffe DG-2. While the George Romero Boss Zombie was very “love it or hate it,” it created a constant threat that would keep coming back.
Killing him would reward the player handsomely with a free Perk Bottle and Death Machine drop (or a Wunderwaffe DG-2 if the Easter Egg has been done). There aren't many video games that let you slay hordes of undead zombies while making witty quips as JFK or Fidel Castro.
Black Ops lets players slay the unrelenting undead horde in its Five Zombies map. Members of the Zombies community often criticize this map for being too hard, having few train spots beside the second floor and having an awful boss wave.
While the Pentagon Thief is rather annoying, running Mustang & Sally or the Ray Gun can make short work of him. Nova crawlers can use teleports as you can, elevators are a deathtrap at higher levels, and most areas are hard to camp in.
Black Ops introduced some iconic weapons like the Thunder gun and Gall, both of which made their debut here. Nova crawlers were somewhat annoying to fight, but it made a nice break from camping and spraying down dozens of zombies.
Black Ops 4's perk changes brought ire among many fans, dropping Juggling and trying to make armor a proper replacement. The split between two timelines made many veterans groan over Treyarch's attempt to gain sympathy over a new cast of characters for the third time.
When the story is put to the side, Black Ops 4 made some good gameplay alterations to the Zombies game mode. Ancient Evil is the Magnum Opus of Black Ops 4, combining epic imagery with Greek mythology and engaging fights with zombies and bosses alike.
The eerie vibe of this map makes it instantly recognizable as well, with the cold steel walls juxtaposing the flames and plentiful blood populating the environment. Black Ops 3's rendition called The Giant was also fantastic, but it didn't innovate as much compared to the original.
Black Ops 3 introduced a plethora of gameplay changes in both its multiplayer and Zombies game modes. Fans were initially mixed, angry that the original cast was missing and the map was heavily focused on the Easter egg.
Over time, this underrated map finally began to get the recognition it deserves for its sweeping mechanical changes and masterful execution of its visual design. Take the epic Easter egg present in Moon and set it within a Medieval castle.
This Easter egg is simple compared to other Zombies maps, meaning new players and Zombies veterans alike can enjoy it. Trey arch took all of those criticisms to heart and created Origins, a map that took the glowing reception of Mob of the Dead and cranked it up to 11.
Instead of surviving as long as possible, players had an actual objective in this map: create a plane to escape Alcatraz. Never ending hallways of cells and stairs made Alcatraz seem incredibly expansive and like a real location.
Mob of the Dead's overall fun factor makes it the bestZombies map ever made to this day. Graduating from Pikes Peak Community College in 2018 with an Associate of Science, Charles has spent his time dissecting popular video games, movies, and technology.
With an Easter egg tying into the events of Transit and giving the backstory to the Avogadro, Alpha Omega fits into the Zombies' storyline pretty well. The fan-favourite Ray Gun Mark II returns, this time with a small side-quest to craft elemental variants, making an already brilliant weapon even more fun and destructive.
Unlike the other three Ether maps in Black Ops 4, Alpha Omega brought enough to the table to actually surpass its predecessor. Trey arch appears to be teasing the first DLC drop for Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War’s Zombies mode with a mysterious message and image on Twitter.
The tweet, found below, states “Project End station was only the beginning.” and is accompanied by an image seemingly showcasing an aerial view of ‘Omega Outpost 25.’ Currently, that’s all we know about the map, but according to the final bit of handwriting on the image, we’ll find out “more soon.” Chances are we’ll get a handful more teasers before we get an official release date for the new Cold War Zombies map.
For those looking for a bit of additional context, Project End station was a Nazi experiment designed to create new atomic weapons in their fight against the allied forces. Given the mention of another Dark Ether Portal at wherever this ‘Omega Outpost 25’ is, it would appear that this locale will succumb to an overwhelming number of the undead.
Image: Trey arch /Activision The only thing we know about the map right now is that it’s another secret scientific research lab and that there’s another Dark Ether outbreak there. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is now being enjoyed by millions of players across many platforms including the next-gen Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5.
One of the most anticipated modes with this year's game is the return of Zombies mode, the legendary mode present in all Black Ops titles has achieved cult status and Black Ops Cold War's iteration of it has undergone a radical overhaul for its most recent release, from the mode's lore to its gameplay. One of the changes that has stood more than most has been the renewal of the weapon crafting system, which now has a more complete arsenal in terms of weapon creation, going from simple grenades and explosives to heavy equipment for large score streaks.
Another notable change has been in the way of collecting crafting parts, which will now be dropped by the zombies you manage to eliminate, instead of having to collect them at specific points around the map. At the moment, only 14 different items can be crafted at the table which are divided into 3 sections: Tactical, Lethal and Support.
All of these are based on their multiplayer counterparts, and which will be very useful as the game progresses further. As with the random weapon chests, crafting tables are scattered across the Die Machine map, so learning their location is important.
One of these is in the main spawning room, which allows you to forge weapons as soon as the game begins, another is through the automatic doors of the underground facility, while the last is in the particle accelerator room. It’s important to note these are all unlocked for use from the beginning, and it’s expected to be added to other maps that are released in the future, along with a new arsenal.
Zombies mode has been one of the most anticipated by the community, and with it, a more refined and complete weapon crafting system has arrived. Activision and Trey arch have today pulled back the curtain on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's Zombies mode, revealing more details on its story, characters and gameplay features.
You'll be able to get hands-on with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in just a couple of weeks via the game's multiplayer beta, with the full version arriving for Xbox One on November 13th and Xbox Series X|S later this year. Trey arch has been on a roll lately with all their content updates and the release of their first major DLC, Operation Absolute Zero.
But now it seems like Trey arch has started teasing something that’ll be coming to the Black Ops title soon enough. Trey arch posted a tweet teasing the fate of the Zombies in Blackout and the undead spawn in it.
Right now, the battle royale mode has no zombies at all at any of the possible spawn points around the map. You can drop in Asylum, Lighthouse, River town, and Nuke town Island with no zombies roaming around.
Trey arch has been delivering the goods nonstop for the past month. This post contains affiliate links where barrel rolled may receive a small commission upon sales.
I specialize in indie games as I think they don’t get the attention they deserve. I started out reviewing them with friends on old forums that now no longer exist.
