Black Ops 2 Zombies reveal trailer stumbles in

First gameplay footage of the new zombies mode

Treyarch has finally quit the teasing and released the reveal trailer for its much-anticipated new Zombies mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.


It's got guns, rundown urban environments and boatloads of zombies with glowing eyes to shoot in the face.

The new Zombies section of the game was revealed in a recent preview event, where Treyarch detailed its three new modes, Tranzit, Survival and Grief. Here's how they break down (thanks Joystiq):

  • Tranzit: The main Zombies mode, its an awesome-sounding new four-player co-op mode that lets players freely traverse a "big, giant, expansive world" - the biggest the developer's ever made, according to Treyarch's Mark Lamia. In the video below you'll see players using a bus to travel between locations, blasting zombies in an open world. But even in the bus, players aren't safe, and Treyarch warns that while it makes travel faster, it isolates players in an environment that's hard to escape. As before, players can gather items and resources that let them open up new parts of the open world.
  • Survival: This sounds most like the traditional CoD Zombies mode you're used to - you're dropped into an isolated area from the Tranzit world, and fend off zombies while gathering weapons and fortifying your base. Treyarch says that multiple areas of the main Tranzit mode have been altered to resemble traditional maps, but held off confirming how many maps there'll be.
  • Grief: A new eight-player mode splitting players into two teams of four, you're dropped into a Tranzit location and tasked with out-living the other team. Players can't shoot each other, but it's ultimately a competition between the teams to live the longest.

Zombies mode will also no offer full multiplayer-style stat-tracking, leaderboards and custom game setup options, as well as new zombie types. And despite the big reveal, Treyarch also says it's still keeping plenty of surprises under wraps for now.
