There probably wont ever be a packaged, standalone Call of Duty Zombies game

2 min read


I’m a fan of 66% of any Call of Duty game. A third of my love goes to the single-player when I power through it on a weekend, and the other third goes to the extra mode, such as Zombies or Extinction.

I’d give the final third of that love to the multiplayer mode, but I can only handle so many hours of being consistently crap at it while first-world nations benefit from a solid online connection that makes it look like their bullets are engaging in some wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey time travel.

What I would love 100% however, is a Call of Duty that was just pure zombies. Imagine it, a three year development cycle from a studio, dedicated to the brain-munchers. Oh man, I’d be in heaven, like a necrophiliac landing a job at the local morgue.

Thing is, that won’t happen. Ever. Because that kind of game wouldn’t cater to every audience.

“Sometimes you want to watch a movie and want to be engaged narratively on a concept,” campaign and Zombies mode director Jason Blundell said to Eurogamer.

And then we have multiplayer–sometimes you just want to run around and have that high-engagement experience. And sometimes you want to kill the undead–sometimes you want to play Zombies.

We see by the numbers and how people engage with the game as a whole, people change that feeling. They’ll move between the different modes.

It’s really about flexibility and variety of choice for the amount of people who buy our games

Unlike the standalone zombie games on iOS, I’d bet. Yeah, those actually do exist.

This year’s Zombie mode features the usual quartet of actors to headline the title; Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, and Ron Perlman. It’s looking decent, and I can’t wait to sink my teeth into it. Wait, why are you pointing a shotgun at me? It was just a figure of speech!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    My interest is a little tickled in the new Black Ops game. Its 15hours long, has no Zombie mode on disc and runs at a silky smooth MGSV 60fps. MMMmmmmm I might pick it up.

    WHY IS FALLOUT NOT 60FPS? The D-Dog animation makes the new Fallout dog seem like it belongs on the 360.

    60fps or GTFO.

    MGSV is the only game that shows off the true power of our NEXT GEN consoles.

      But you can’t really notice the difference between 30fps and 60fps!!! (juuust kidding)

      Yeah me too haven’t bought a COD game since Modern Warfare 3 I think, actually that’s a lie got Advance Warfare from Guild. This one looks good!

        He actually doesn’t notice the difference. What he notices is the motion blur, which depends on how dronk he is when playing. 😉

          You got me.

        • Nikola

          Hahaha:) I was considering to troll him over the whole 30/60 fps thingy today but I was worried he might track me down and kill me decided against it:)

            lol it would have worked. I only go nuts on Darynns articles as I know he does not give a hoot. It could be 5fps on a 1988 tube TV but if it has a Batmobile he is happier than a pig in shit.
            I love it.

            haha well the man does love his Batman!
