Admittedly, I’m a little confused by what the folks over at Activision doing right now, but that doesn’t mean I’m not terribly excited by the whole thing.
Earlier today, the official Black Ops Facebook page posted a picture that’s bound to send the CoD community into a mess of speculative confusion. This picture simply featured a weathered version of the “Welcome to Nuketown” sign that Black Ops fans have all become familiar with. However, it also had the word “Zombies” scrawled across the surface in what we can probably assume is not red paint.
Now, even though Activision hasn’t really given us much information about what the zombies will be doing in Nuketown, I think it’s pretty safe to say that we’re all going to be addicted to it. Though, in all probability, they’re simply just using Nuketown as the setting for their next zombie mode, which seems particularly fitting if you think about it.
This is a smart maneuver on Treyarch’s part; by combining their incredibly popular zombie mode with their incredibly popular Nuketown map, they’ve essentially invented a new kind of candy. Like the guy who invented peanut butter cups.
For the rest of the day, I’ll probably just be sitting on the Black Ops Facebook page clicking refresh until they give me some more information. So, I’ll keep you updated as the story unfolds.
