Call of Duty: Black Ops getting Zombie Map Packs

Yesterday, Activision announced the price and contents of the special Hardened and Prestige editions of Call of Duty: Black Ops. Both editions are set to include four extra multiplayer maps. But if you check the product pages on Best Buy’s website, you’ll find extra undead details about these four maps.

“Four Zombie Maps Pack made famous from COD: World at War,” reads the description on the page. Sounds like the zombie mode will be returning. If it’s true, we don’t really like the idea of exclusive multiplayer maps in the extra expensive collector’s editions. What say you? Will you be buying the Hardened Edition for $79.99 or the Prestige Edition with the remote controlled car for $149.99?

Will you be buying a special edition of Black Ops?
No. I'm just getting the game.
I'm getting the Hardened Edition.
I'm getting the Prestige Edition.
I hate remote controlled cars.
I still play Tribes. free polls

    shut up all you people who say zombies sucks because some people aren't scared out of their pants if they see a spider, let alone a zombie.

    All you people who are saying things like "Everyone hates zombies and Activision knows it" shut up and think about the fact that some people like zombies and aren't scared out of their pants if they see a spider.

    Its only CODs second game with zombies "ericeraqus." why complain. whenever you get bored of the multiplayer just play zombie mode!

    Thanks Activision for trying to get me to pay for shit I already bought a second time just like in MW2. Fucking done with FPS games at this point. It's either lobbies full of douchebags (Halo) or games published by greedy companies that eventually rape their franchises of all fun (COD).

    Leave it to activision to make the zombie maps exclusive to the most expensive editions of the game.
  • DarkTone - August 14, 2010 2:04 a.m.

    Wow. Activision really wanna use Modern Warfare 2 in past terms. New multiplayer perks, RC car, zombies. Next there gonna announce your dream woman will deliver it to you at your an overcoat....while your home alone...

    Alright, you know what? EAT A DICK ACTIVISION!!

    lol why do people hate on zombies? It made the game better plus a lot of people dont like playing campaign or multiplayer online so they play zombies which is pretty cool if you got the right people to with

    HEY ACTIVISION, If I already purchashed them for W@W dont make your fanbase repurchase them for the next COD, cause if thats the case we will just pop back in W@W for our zombie fix. Wake up gaming community, dont throw money @ activision just to play zombies cause your only hurting us in the long run.

    @ericeraqus, because zombies are awesome. I'm probably gonna buy the regular old game and download the map pack. 20 extra bucks for 4 maps and a steel case?? Really? I'm super excited that I'll be able to download the 4 old zombie maps. I'm also PSYCHEEED that there will be a zombie mode! Best part of the game!!
  • TheRebaleKing - August 13, 2010 8:37 p.m.

    I only get the regular edition, these Hardened and Prestige editions don't really offer me anything worth while, I just want to play the game.
  • WaffleLeech - August 13, 2010 8:17 p.m.

    Durring World at War, ALL I played was Zombies, so this has pretty much sealed the deal.
  • Chet85 - August 13, 2010 8:09 p.m.

    I love the zombie game in W@W. I've loved all the CoD games, this one won't be any different. Stop being so damn picky.
  • RedOutlive10 - August 13, 2010 7:08 p.m.

    Sounds totally original.
  • kriscotw9 - August 13, 2010 6:43 p.m.

    Why do the makers of cod get it in their head that we wont to play old maps? at first it was cool, but now it just seems that they're not putting enough effort, if we wanted to play old content we would play the old game
  • wud03 - August 13, 2010 6:34 p.m.

    nazi zombies were awesome. i don't remember having to pay for it though. that's not awesome.
  • LarzimusPrime - August 13, 2010 6:16 p.m.

    Cool idea making the extra maps the originals... That way those who dont buy it wont feel theyre missin out on too much, and I agree with @SilentBoy, They probs will be DLC Afterwards (Albiet overpriced knowing Activision)
