Zombies Won’t Stay Dead, Rezurrected in Black Ops

The Call of Duty series has become one of the biggest franchises and has revolutionized online shooters. Many gamers are anticipating the release of Modern Warfare 3 on November 8th. For those who can’t wait, Black Ops will be getting a new game mode for gamers to play through, which will be familiar to Call of Duty: World at War owners.

Black Ops will get a DLC pack of five maps for a new zombie mode called “Rezurrection.” The gameplay for the zombie mode wasn’t detailed, but Activision offered details of the new maps.

Four are remastered and upgraded versions of the World at War Zombies maps that started it all – Nacht der Untoten, Verruckt, Shi No Numa and Der Riese. If you were introduced to Zombies gameplay with Black Ops, these are the historical maps that will fill in some of the backstory for you – and in addition to updated weapons and polish, they each still have their own surprises to offer.

The fifth map will be set on the moon where “the rules of engagement will apparently be changing.” That’s right, it looks like players will get to fight zombies in some sort of futuristic moon base. The DLC should release sometime before September 30th. The Xbox Live Marketplace will get the DLC first on August 23rd. As an added bonus, the “Rezurrection” pack will be free to Black Ops Hardened and Prestige owners. Activision stated the reason for this was,

as a thank-you to the hardcore fans for their support from the start. You’ll be able to go into your Download History and re-download the classic pack you already own, and the fresh download will include the new Moon map.
