GodisaGeek Celebrates Call of Duty: Black Ops Rezurrection Release with a Zombie Portrait
With Modern Warfare 3 on the horizon, it seems fitting that Call of Duty: Black Ops receives a swansong of sorts, in the form of the Rezurrection map pack, devoted entirely to the Zombies game mode. To celebrate the launch of the add-on, Activision have turned one of our staff members into a zombie!
We thought long and hard about who to choose for this very special honour, but in the end the choice was obvious. News Editor Terry Lucy has become one of the undead, and we’ve the proof right here to show you. The image is quite graphic (we’re talking zombies, after all) so we’ve enclosed it into a gallery so you have to click to see it. You can also download the full hi-res image by clicking here.
Call of Duty® gamers leave earth’s atmosphere today with the release of Rezurrection, the fourth downloadable content pack on Xbox 360® for the best-selling first-person-shooter title, Call of Duty®: Black Ops. Rezurrection’s stellar payload features the never-before-seen Zombie frag-fest Moon, as well as four re-mastered levels from Zombies past, an enhanced Zombies soundtrack and new Moon theme.
Moon features outrageous new weapons, futuristic gear and hordes of low-gravity undead beasts, delivering Black Ops’ most expansive, visceral, and otherworldly Zombies experience yet. Meanwhile, bolstered with the firepower and visual splendor of Black Ops, players can relive the nightmare of “Nacht der Üntoten,” escape the Zombie madness in the asylum of “Verrückt,” battle back the undead Imperial Army of “Shi No Numa,” and pull the plug on “Der Riese,” the zombie factory that started it all.
“Our Zombies fans are so incredibly engaged with us in the ongoing development of the franchise, and we’re excited to deliver them our first all-Zombies content package,” said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. “Rezurrection is Zombies nirvana, with four of our best Zombies experiences, topped off with the awesome, all-new level Moon.”
Once Rezurrection is downloaded, Black Ops will make available a free Zombies soundtrack with three tracks never before available for purchase, and a free Moon theme. For our fans who purchased the Black Ops Hardened or Prestige Editions and have already downloaded the Classic Zombie pack with re-mastered maps, the pack can be redownloaded to get Rezurrection with Moon; and Black Ops will make available the soundtrack and theme for free.
Additionally, the team at Treyarch has once again partnered with avid Call of Duty fans and rock superstars, Avenged Sevenfold, to feature their classic track, Nightmare, in the “Moon” level of the Rezurrection map pack.
To mark the release of Rezurrection and help kick off the first ever Call of Duty fan celebration, Call of Duty XP, on 2nd-3rd September, the team will host Double XP over the weekend of Friday 2nd September through to Monday 5th September.
The Call of Duty: Black Ops Rezurrection map pack is available today for Xbox 360, for the price of 1200 Microsoft Points. The content will be released for PC and PlayStation 3 at a later date.
