Since the announcement of the Hardened Edition and Care Package Edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, one would think there isn’t much left to tease people with before its November 13th release, right? Well, if you agreed, then you’d be wrong. Since this year’s release is a Treyarch title, that means Zombie mode will be returning. Zombie mode has earned a mass following of its own, being released on mobile devices as well as earning its own DLC expansions including an appearance from zombie mastermind George A. Romero.
This year, Activision isn’t just teasing us with a zombie trailer. No. They are teasing us with a teaser trailer FOR the zombie trailer. In the trailer below you’ll see a creepy, boarded up bus pull up to a station and open its doors before revealing the trailer’s release date of September 26th. After that, there are a few brief shots of zombies in action.
But what can we speculate from this trailer?
The first thing that stands out is the bus itself. The way it has been covered with makeshift armor, it stands to reason that this is the vehicle the players are supposedly traveling in. Because they decide to stop, they may be looking for supplies when the attack occurs. Could this means that the players aren’t taking the roles of military characters but instead those of civilians like Left 4 Dead?
It is also worth noting that in one of the quick cuts, players see a zombie hanging on to the side of the bus in a medical robe. This signifies that players are near some sort of hospital. Could this be the hospital where the outbreak first happens or possibly a mental hospital where the outbreak is a result of various experiments?
What we know is that the Zombie trailer officially comes out in one week. Everything else… is up in the air. Stick to the Flickcast for more on Call of Duty: Black Ops II coming to the XBox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 on November 13th.
