The Escalation Pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops hit the Xbox 360 today and with it comes Call of the Dead, a star-studded zombie expansion that features it's own story and a new backdrop. George Romero explains the story behind Call of the Dead.
It's like all my wet dreams came at once..
I bet the gameplay sucks
WOW...this is something that I'd actually buy....if it had co-op. I've actually been looking for a co-op zombie killing game on the PS3. I'm expecting Valve to announce L4D 3 as a multiplatform game with PS3 exclusive content.
If I hadn't sold black ops then I would be interested in this because of Romero's involvement
Wait, you have to buy Black Ops to play this?! I thought it was a standalone game
Yh it's part of the Black Ops Map pack that came out recently.
It's really unfortunate that such a cool idea was made in such a crappy game.
Maybe next George Romero can explain why his last two zombie movies were fooking rubbish?
Yeah they were shit mate! It's a shame cos his first 3 were good. The 4th one was ok. The 5th was tolerable. But it went from getting worse with each one to just downright shit by the end! I considered the time I spent watching Survival of the Dead a waste! Still he is the Daddy of the Zombie genre.... so better to forget all his new shit and just remember the original 3!
I will lay odds that the actual gameplay is nowhere near as cool as that trailer makes out! lol I think we are waaay overdue a truly class Zombie game... hopefully we will get one done right soon! I don't have B:ops so I can't get this pack, looks like it will be a bit beefier than the normal zombie mode though which is cool!
Is it just me, or should this be a full game known as Left 4 Dead 3?
its a shame you only get to see the barrel of the gun and not the character models as they look excellent. also i wasnt a big fan of zombie mode in cod i prefered L4D gameplay better. they should have released this as a stand alone product, for once huh activision missed a money making opportunity.
They probably will once CoD sales decline. They'll charge the same price as a full retail game though. Good old Bobby Kotick, keeping the shareholders happy.
Groovy B movie stuff really nice! Call of the Dead should be a standalone download as well because that way i would buy it.
