Today is the day where Black Ops 2 completly dominates!

first of zombie mode was finally shown and its massive! Treyarch confirm zombie mode is not just a mini mode anymore as it will have its own story mode and lots of multiplayer online modes and each has its own set of features!

Zombie mode this year will be an Open world type game, you are free to go anymore and any location you want, up tp 8 players are now confirmed and tons of new modes

Treyarch lists what we will see in zombie mode alone:

Trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YH_9GzaUW40

Zombie Modes
Treyarch revealed three modes during its preview event, detailing them in a presentation at the end of a day of multiplayer hands-on. One mode will be instantly recognizable to fans of other Treyarch Call of Duty games.

    • 'Tranzit' adds scale to the original gametype, and acts as the primary mode for zombie players. Rather than be stuck in one location, players are free to explore a "big, giant, expansive world." Calling it "significantly bigger than anything [Treyarch has] ever created," Lamia promises players (playing solo or up to four-players co-op) can traverse on foot or via the bus featured in the zombies world premiere trailer above.

      "Because it's open and because there are multiple locations in this world where you can play and where the infestation is, there's different strategies about how you can approach it," he adds. "It's a much bigger world with much more going on." Moving through the world in the bus has tactical advantages, such as speed; however, it isolates players and can become very difficult to escape from. Going it on foot "into the fog" which players can do by themselves or as part of the group also has its perks, but puts players in the middle of danger.

      To aid in their survival, players can collection pieces of items from throughout the world, putting them together to create "buildables"; including weapons, tools and things to help open new areas of the world.

    • 'Survival' has the "more classic zombies vibe," where zombie aggressors attack the player within a single area from the "expansive" Tranzit world. From its description, things work relatively the same as they have in the past: hole up, fortify your location and venture out to grab bonuses scattered throughout the environment when you find the right moment.

      Survival areas are "carved out" of the Tranzit world and customized by Treyarch to act much like dedicated maps. Though Lamia wouldn't give an exact number, he promised players will have access to "multiple areas" in Survival that are designed to be played as a standalone section (solo or as a 4-player co-op experience). These areas feature the same gameplay zombie fans are used to, including magic items and 'Pack-a-Punch' machines.

  • 'Grief' is a new mode, available for up to 8 players that takes the concept of Survival and adds a competitive twist. In this mode, two teams of four players are dropped within the zombie-infested Tranzit world and must outlive the opposing team.

    "This is what I've called in the past '4z4,'" Lamia says, detailing a mode that breaks down to a simple descriptor of Humans vs. Humans vs. Zombies. "It's really humans versus zombies, because the zombies don't care what team you're on. They just want human flesh and brains."

    In this mode, human players cannot kill each other; however, they can play with the world to put the opposing team in precarious situations hence the name 'Grief.' The last human team standing wins the match.

    Standard elements like blocking passages seem to be on the docket to make the other team's life harder, but Lamia says there are "new mechanics exclusive to this mode" that players can employ to grief the other team with. When pressed for details, Lamia wouldn't budge on what those elements are.

TONS of new information which you see right here: http://www.joystiq.com/2012/09/26/call-of-duty-black-ops-2-zombies-terrorize-an-open-world/

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 release in November 13th.. The biggest First Person Shooter in history of Gaming is ALMOST HERE!

I just enjoyed hearing the characters lines while killing zombies, it gave the zombies mode some personallity compared to other zombie games.

thier marketing enough to fool you?
#17 Posted by Technoweirdo (7217 posts) -

Interested in seeing how Grief works without 'friendly' fire.
Personally, I'd just take advantage of the extra firepower and try to get everyone to play as if it were Survival.

Own story mode? God, treyarch are really copying Halo 4 with its spartan ops story mode.
#19 Posted by Wanderer5 (25721 posts) -

Oh wow I- ugh no I still not getting this game.:x But I think I definitely going to rent this game to check out the Tranzit mode.

#20 Posted by Avian005 (4112 posts) -

From what I can tell you take a bus to one area, clear it out, then go to the next area on the same bus. Rinse and repeat. That's not open-world, especially when the bus seems to go in only one direction and you can't choose where you want to go.

Also, this game has terrible textures.

#21 Posted by Wasdie (50000 posts) -

It's like the zombie mode is pretty much its own game now. The more open world mode sounds really fun. I'll have to find people to play it with.

The bus mode it seems is one of the other modes available so the open world mode is a whole differnt mode on itself.. you bsically chose the mode you prfer to play with friends

...What?!

It's a survival mode while spartan ops is a mission mode.

Spartan Ops=Spec Ops

If anything Halo is copying Call of Duty.

After reading your post I think they say that the bus mode is open world.

I really don't consider it being so.

the whole Halo 4 release date is completly stupid imo.. Halo 4 will be destoryed because its coming 1 week before BO2 ( BO2 hype is increasing like crazy ) and microsoft going to advertise BO2 on xbox like crazy.. this is exactly what happened to amazing Spiderman movie, it came out 1 week before the Dark Knight Rises and Spiderman movie was destoryed.

anyways just my 2 cents :P.. cant wait for BO2

#28 Posted by Zeviander (9503 posts) -
I'm quite surprised Activision hasn't made this a full $60 retail game yet. I bet most people buy Treyarch's games these days for this mode.

Both horde-esque gametypes that didn't start on neither Halo or CoD. However now 343 has included a story element, and treyarch is copying :lol:

Becuase the fans of Halo will not buy Halo just to buy CoD right?

That's stupid. At this point Halo isn't winning over new fans, it's just catering to its existing fanbase. It may grow a bit, but for the most part it won't be selling to non fans that much.

No, none of them sound open-world. Tranzit is the one that's called Treyarch "biggest map/world" and Grief is just Tranzit with two teams trying to survive longer than the other.

Except ... spiderman wasn't that good, and was nothing compared to the dark knight. Whereas Halo 4 will no doubt be critically acclaimed, probably moreso than CoD realistically.

To good to be true actually it's probably only in the US. If it's in the UK then it's probably GAME problem is my local GAME and HMV closed down.I don't know how to trade in online.

Spider-man was good, but it was basically the same exact movie as the first Raimi movie, just with a different villain and love-interest. Also it came out a little over two weeks before TDKR came out.

Seems like Treyarch are making a great game... but I'm tired of COD, I have bought it every year for a long time I don't know if anything will tempt me to get it this year at launch at least.

It's in Canada only I knew it was to good to be true. Looks like I will never get this game until there is a deal that sells it under 20£

Im sure the fans will get it day 1 but was just sayin..they shoulda really made it available early in the year cuz i atleast i woulda tried it too.

anyways November looking really good.

Yeah it was enjoyable. However nowhere near the dark knight rises in hype or in critic reviews.

Day Z isn't really action though is it? More survival?

Which makes it better than this for some people.
