Speaking with BebopVox at E3, Activision’s VP of Production Daniel Suarez confirmed a bunch of new details about Black Ops 2′s new-and-improved Zombies mode.
Not only does the fact that Zombies mode now resides in the multiplayer engine allow for more players and Zombies in-game, but also new game modes. The regular 4-player co-op that Zombies built its name on will make a return, but all-new game modes will be implemented. For example, there’ll be a 4v4 mode that also throws Zombies into the mix. Imagine you and 3 of your friends versus another 4 guys versus a bunch of Zombies. That’s just one of the new modes Treyarch have dreamt up for Black Ops 2.
Another example of one of Zombies’ new game modes is the Wager Matches that debuted in the original Black Ops. The Free-For-All-based mode will be coming to Black Ops 2 with a Zombies twist.
Then there’s the theater mode. Black Ops 2′s Zombies mode will now be included in theater mode, allowing you to make your own movies / montages and show off your Zombies-slaying skills to the masses.
That’s not all, though. There’s a lot more in store for us with Black Ops 2′s Zombies. In fact, “a lot of the nuances of multiplayer have been brought over to Zombies” according to Suarez.
