First Call of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies mode screens; full reveal tomorrow

Call of Duty: Black Ops II developer Treyarch plans on dishing out details on the update to its popular Zombies co-op four-player mode tomorrow.

To rile up its zombie-hating fans, the studio released a pair of screens from the cooperative wave-attack game from its anticipated first-person shooter coming on November 13 to PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. This follows a trailer the company released earlier in the week that teases the full reveal.

Treyarch featured Nazi Zombie mode in Call of Duty: World at War and Black Ops. The game pits up to four players in a series of arenas against the time-traveling walking corpses. Slayers of the undead can earn cash for killing the lifeless husks, which they can then use to buy weapons and grenades to make it easier to kill more zombies.

In the original Black Ops, Treyarch included an Easter egg where players killed the zeds as former U.S. President John F. Kennedy, former Cuban President Fidel Castro, former U.S. President Richard Nixon, and former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. Half the anticipation for the Black Ops II version of Zombies is discovering the new bonuses.

Many Call of Duty fans prefer this mode over the traditional competitive multiplayer. That’s likely because it’s cooperative and isn’t quite as stressful or frustrating as team deathmatch.

So far, Treyarch hasn’t revealed the Naziness of the Zombies in Black Ops II, but that is something we’ll likely discover during tomorrow’s reveal.

Publisher Activision is set to release the Wii U version of Call of Duty: Black Ops II alongside the consoles debut on November 18.
