Happy Call of Duty day? Personally, this used to be a far more exciting day back in the early Modern Warfare to era. I used to get all sorts of overly excited for every year’s Call of Duty launch, especially those which had the co-operative Zombie mode. Not only am I far less excited this year, but zombies are also being ripped out of the core package.
Which isn’t to say it was there to begin with, but it is odd to see one of the best Call of Duty modes relegated to Season Pass DLC. That’s right, if you want to get in on some futuristic undead killing with some friends, you’re going to have to invest a lot more into this year’s blockbuster shooter.
The news was leaked via an email sent to retailers, which detailed the content that Advanced Warfare’s Season Pass would contain. There are four individual packs again, each retailing for $15 and collectively costing $49.99. The email detailed some of the weapons and maps that would be included, but also made mention of a Zombies mode returning. Other than that, there isn’t much else to go on.
That irks me a little, especially since I consider Zombies as one of the core pillars to my Call of Duty experience. Having to pay extra for a mode that as previously been part of the main package just sounds horrible, even if Advanced Warfare ships with its own other brand of co-operative fun. Are you enough of a fan to splash out a little extra for it though? Are you even picking up Call of Duty this year?
