So we have some amazing news over the past week that comes in the form of knowing that zombies is finally making an appearance in Call Of Duty Modern Warfare.....woo hoo! It has been sorely missed, especially by myself over the past 10 months or so, so much its absence has brought a tear to my eye at times....but lets keep that between you and me.
Thankfully, now it has almost arrived, some leaks about what it could be about have popped up all over the internet after data miners have found certain options hidden in code etc and tried to decipher what it might mean.
Some people have speculated that this will be the transition part of Modern Warfare into Call Of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, getting us fired up for its release by making this the first chapter in zombies which will carry its story over from Modern Warfare into Cold War. This could be bang on the money, or it could be people throwing wild guesses into the air left right and centre like a giant confetti convention.
What I believe is that as the zombie mode is coming to warzone, a huge open battlefield where you can go almost anywhere, will be a huge version of the popular game mode called Infection from the game Perfect Dark Zero, which was originally on Nintendo 64 consoles, then ported over to Xbox 360 as one of its early launch titles.....both of which were awesome.
However in the Perfect Dark infection game type, there would be human players and others who were a skeleton. When the skeleton / infected killed a person, they joined the infected team and have to hunt down those who were once his allies in a previous life. Once the infected had killed all the human players, the game was over, however zombies in Warzone has had speculation that people who have been infected can return to the game if they consume the heart of fallen players.
This got me thinking whether or not it has to be the players heart from the exact spot he was killed or any players heart who has been killed. I am guessing there is a time limit also in place as to how long you can keep trying to retrieve that heart before it disappears or if a player can destroy it etc.
Expect the release date for Warzone zombies to be around the 5th of October when Season 5 of Warzone will end. Whether this new game mode will give Modern Warfare's life span a boost in longevity as its only about 5 weeks away when its presumed to be introduced from the arrival of Cold War which may shift about 80% of the players straight to the new game I predict....although I'm no crystal ball :).
Reportedly around the Internet from some reliable sources they beleive these are the 4 game modes that have been revealed for the Warzone overhaul for zombies:
- Pandemic / Outbreak
- Armoured Cargo/Truck Wars
- Plunder: Fire Sale
- Zombies Royale
