    YAY !


  • I’m not too keen on buying the season pass yet


    Good thing I have the season pass paid off as well as the limited edition game and the limited edition advanced warfare xbox one

  • ZxAxify

    Now arriving at Platform 1 is the hype train.

    bs zombies spelled wrong

    i knew it would happen -____-

  • Arni

    SHG you batards, you managed this to sell a max ammount of Season Pass, well played guys.

    • kyr95

      Technically it was Activision πŸ˜‰

      • Arni

        I hope that SHG can decide which mode they put on their own game. If Acitivsion telle them to not put Zombies in the original game that’ll be a shame.

        • kyr95

          They’ve already told them that.

  • Guywithbrains

    This made me seriously think about buying season pass.

  • I really hope this game is beast. The info we’re getting points that way.

  • sdffsdfsd


    • HotHam

      There are zombies in the base game though. There is a video of gameplay

  • jrnotaloka

    so u telling me that in order for me to play zombies im going to need the season pass…
    someone please pinch me

  • They realised we really wanted zombies. So they’ve given themselves another 3 months to develop it in DLC.

    • tommygun

      Tbh the Tally marks on the AW special edition controller were a big clue so they was already going to do this, I mean where else to you see tally marks……treyarchs zombies mode, also it was confirmed a while back that treyarch have been working hand in hand with SH games to help on the zombies side of the game mode.

      • Trizay

        You do realize that Sledgehammer confirmed the tally marks had nothing to do with Zombies. There’s even a post about.

        • Aymen Skiken

          naw they were just hiding it

        • tommygun

          So what did they “confirm” them to be then?????

  • Seven

    Not hyped. Not putting any more money into this game becuase of the bullshit they pulled.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Now that Zombie fans have Zombies, they’re now going to bitch that it’s in DLC? Smh.

    • zombiefreak935

      who cares? was gonna get the season pass anyways, better than exo survival.

    • ik. The haters are frustrating, but I can undestrand the anxiety after Ghosts.

    • kyr95

      And theyre gonna complain about SHG while its Activision who handles these DLC stuff -_-

      • jordanxbrookes

        ATVI wanna make money, so this is a perfect strategy.

        • kyr95

          Im seeing comments on reddit “they had 3 years and they couldnt put it in the game, pathetic developers”
          They do realise ATVI decides what goes into the season pass right?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Nope, most of the people that talk shit on Call of Duty don’t even know the in’s and out’s of how everything is done behind the scenes.

          • kyr95

            And to be fair, we basically get a 4th mode with the DLC. How many games have 4 modes?!! We shouldnt complain, if people dont want to buy season pass, they can wait for teyarch’s next game, big deal.

        • jrnotaloka
          • zombiefreak935

            nope, we have known about that, but its just the bonus round.

        • PERFECT strategy for BUSINESSES….but not for us CONSUMERS…we are CONSUMERS and should expect better out of these companies who are milking our wallets, especially as it looks like they witheld the content to sell as DLC.

          I mean AW for me is arriving tomororw and I am excited with or without zombies…but it’s the general principle of taking out something that should have been in the final game and selling it as DLC that is letting us gamers get screwed over with DLC/day one DLC/pre-order bonuses and all that heap of garbage in general.

          • kyr95

            I dont mind people complaining about that, but they should know that for this mode to be part of DLC is ATVI’s decision not SHG’s.

          • MIKKEtheMIDGET

            What is ATVI?

          • kyr95

            Short for Activision.

          • MIKKEtheMIDGET

            Thanks πŸ™‚

          • Mhm, I understand, I’m rather angry at ATVI than SHG since I know it’s the publishers decision.

          • brad

            Don’t wanna pay? Don’t buy. Thats how you speak to them. Using your wallet.

          • I will vote with my wallet.

            I will buy the game at $60, (new may I add) to support the developers and the effort they put in, but not the season pass (which is not the way DLC should be done)

          • brad

            Alright there you go. I will go ahead and BUY the DLC because I want it. Simple as that.

          • More power to you mate, I hope you enjoy it! πŸ™‚

          • brad

            Oh you know I will. New guns, new maps. Makes the game fresh.

          • juicestice89


    • ben wills

      Well they should. We shouldn’t have to pay extra to complete our game

      • jordanxbrookes

        Count yourselves lucky. Sledgehammer shouldn’t have made a Zombie mode because people will never be satisfied and happy with what we already have.

        • ben wills

          No, we’re not lucky.

          If anything, this would discourage 3arcs from coming back in the base game. Again, I shouldn’t have to pay extra to complete my game.

          They had 3 years to make a game. They made an incomplete game. Less MP maps than any release since WaW, 3rd mode that is the same as MW3’s just WITHOUT spec ops missions, and now a DLC mode. This is horrible.

          Get your head out of your own, and SHG’s, ass.

          • HenryDF

            You realise it would have been ATVI who made this decision, not Sledgehammer?

          • ben wills

            Not necessarily. Definitely not necessarily.

          • HenryDF

            No, definitely. Sledgehammer have no interest in the marketing of the Season Pass – the publisher will decide what goes where, and even if Sledgehammer had disagreed, they’d have had the final say.

          • jordanxbrookes

            This isn’t Sledgehammer’s doing, this is Activision’s, did you know that?

        • I normally agree with you, but shouldn’t we as consumers expect the best out of these companies/publishers instead of being corporate slaves?

          I mean if we paid $60 for this game, we should expect a full package (not saying it’s not worth it without zombies)… but if it’s true that ACTVI took out content (ie. zombies) to release it as DLC, that is unacceptable.

          Lucky isn’t the right word to be used: we bought this game with our wallets, so us as consumers should always demand the best out of these rich companies.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I know it’s wrong, but if it was the other way round, where Zombies was the third mode and Exo-Survival was the mode that came as part of DLC, it would be a whole different story because you wouldn’t complain.

          • Well I personally would, if they had already hinted at it before hand, and then shown some evidence of holding it back form the launch game, yes I would be because it’s the PRINCIPLE I don’t like.

            However, I do see your point. And while it is valid, I think it’s the fact that they know zombies is the more popular mode, and many dislike the fact that they are taking advantage of these zombie fans and instead of including what was meant to be in the game, they are selling it as DLC, I think that’s where the major problem comes in.

          • Righteous dude

            Zombie fans have always bought the season pass. Look at WAW zombies, a basic map and mode, extensively developed over dlc into something amazing.

          • juicestice89

            They are giving us both options. I think everyone should stop complaining. As someone else said, everyone was whining Cuz there was no zombies and then u get them, then complain. No one is making you buy the game or dlc. If u do then really it’s obviously good enough and no other game has replaced it, so if u r gonna be mad then be mad at the whole industry at least because the best isn’t perfect. Other than that we have a company trying to make a decent product to sell.and yes, oh my goodness, they are trying to make some money! And people are paying them. They are doing what a company does. Nuff said.

          • Anonymous

            Yes they are making a decent product by taking game modes out and making consumers pay more to have them back. Previous COD’s with zombies had a map and with optional dlc with additional maps. OH NOOO not this one, now we have to pay even more to actually have a single map, so no we don’t really have zombies as its not even in the standard release of the game.

          • juicestice89

            Lol last I checked…. it’s not called Zombies. it’s call Call of Duty. They aren’t saying buy cod Zombies! But not giving you zombies unless it’s dlc…

          • juicestice89

            Yeah I get what your saying. But it’s like being obsessed with a mini game. The game your buying isn’t called cod Zombies. They aren’t lying to you, they are selling the main game. I would say your point is valid if. It was called Zombies.

        • CraziBoi94

          Are you that fucking stupid? You probably didnt even read the third party EULA the game put in front of your face either.

          • jordanxbrookes

            No I am not “fucking stupid”, you just want everything.

          • iSellPower

            STFU FFS Instead of commenting on the same blog every 5 minutes go do something else. I agree with CraziBoi, you are stupid!

          • CraziBoi94

            Youre all idiots & getting mad, its okay. You, the consumer, can keep getting buttfucked year after year now. Im fine with it lol.

          • jordanxbrookes

            You don’t tell me what to do ye cheeky cunt, I’ll rek ye m8.

          • CraziBoi94

            Youre right, I want to own the game I bought too. So you must be that fucking stupid.

        • InstantHawk

          Jordan is god, dont argue with him.

        • A

          Oh yes, the consumers are the entitled ones, why don’t you support those poor, poor people and buy their $15 map packs (for a game that will be abandoned in a year)? They’re ONLY PEOPLE, you shouldn’t EXPECT them to give you a some of quality, you’re clearly entitled for doing so.

          Please fuck off.

          • jordanxbrookes

            How about… No.

      • Bad news

        Til now when was zombies confirmed in the game? Now I know in previous cods we had a complete 4th mode from launch but not this year. It’s unfortunate but imo it’s to help sell dlc.

      • Oh my god, you dont even know how this all works yet? Every treyarch game had zombies as dlc , no where in here did it say NO ZOMBIES IN MAIN GAME DLC ZOMBIE EXCLUSIVE MODE. Shh
        -EDIT- Nope, sorry, I’m wrong ,that’s completely how it works and this is fucking dumb.

        • ben wills

          You are extra special aren’t you?


          Have you kept up with anything? Did you read the article? Do you have the IQ above that of a peanut? Seriously, you can’t be this dumb. There is no excuse for your comment. You’re a waste.

          • Fuck you. I didn’t insult you and no I don’t read every article and I didn’t see all the new ones confirming that its not anything but a bonus wave. I even further admitted I was completely wrong. I assumed you were just jumping to conclusions.

    • Trizay

      I am a huge zombies fan, and because I love Zombies so much I actually never wanted it in AW. I feel that if you are a real COD Zombies fan then you’d rather wait for 2015 so you can get the real deal instead of some cheap knock-off from another developer. If there is an actual zombies mode in AW I’ll actually be mad about it.

      • Star-Lord


      • fatal1ty_jh

        Just because it’s made by another developer does not make it a cheap knock-off. If that were the case then most games would be cheap knock-offs of earlier games.

        • Mewtilation

          Uhm, they aren’t? Lol, that’s funny. ‘Cause honestly, they release CoD every year, with the same maps (maybe a few new ones) in different shades and call them ‘NEW’. Assassins creed story is going down, basically, any game with “2” or higher in the title really is a cheap knock-off. Very RARELY do sequels hold a candle to he first game, now-a-days, if the game is “popular”, they’ll release a 2 hour story, charge you 90 dollars, and then release another hour worth of DLC. Oh and everything needs multiplayer now too, ’cause stories don’t really matter much. And people buy it, ’cause they liked the first one, or previous one, or just heard via marketing strategies that it was a “Good game”. I, personally, won’t be picking AW up until the first DLC and I check out the zombies modes, they’re nothing like 3arcs, I won’t be buying this, as I didn’t ghosts. ‘Cause imo, people who play the multiplayer usually have a maturity level of 5 year olds. No idea how many times I’ve had fully grown men and women just screaming vulgarly at me in the game ’cause I wreck them.. and that’s not enjoyable for me, cooperation between me and either my friends, or strangers who will become new friends is. Hence why I only buy CoD for zombies..

      • Zombie king

        Ill but that aswell and if i have to pay for a season pass agen i will its not an issue to me

    • TheShadowReaper

      this is a disgusting anti-consumer practice that has to stop. you are bashing on people because game content is taken out of the game on purpose and is sold to them separately in the season pass. its moments of clarity like those where we can easily see who is a corporate jackie/slave and who isnt. and you Jordan, have failed the test. F for Failure.

    • RebornAngel666

      Do you like honestly put it for your comments to just be up voted?

    • JKB98

      I can’t help but feel like you always defend COD and it’s developers no matter what. No-one wants to have to pay for something that should already be on the disc.

    • Jim Pickens

      Yeah, because zombies fans should be fucking elated that they have to pay for the game twice to access a mode that was free for 3 other games in the franchise.

  • Max Martinez


  • tactikz4

    Of course they were gonna bring another mode because they realized no one was gonna get season pass if it was only for multiplayer and survival maps. Zombies = replayability and people love it.

  • zombiefreak935

    cod aw ZOBNIES

  • kyle2422

    So does Zombies come out right now with season pass or at a later date? Need to know if I should wait to purchase the season pass

  • Ran Foxymagicks Cooper

    hyped for those zobmies though

  • jrnotaloka
  • sdffsdfsd

    lol i aint paying another $50 just to play zombies. fuck dat

    • zombiefreak935


  • ben wills

    What pricks

  • Show N Prove

    I KNEW IT. I told my friend this idea last night and its true!!!!

  • I’ll have to see first what the mode actually looks like πŸ˜›
    Good thing I have time to decide because the dlc arrives first on Xbox and I can see some gameplay.

    • Simon

      Same here, I have a bad feeling it will be a mixture of Zombies and Extinction.

  • dingus

    People really shouldn’t buy it if it’s only a single round in the game then sold as DLC. That’s dirty as hell.

  • Quick question does this mean if you have the season pass Zombies will be available from Day Zero or does this mean that each zombie map will drop as DLC as part of the season pass as I am slightly confused….

    • Simon

      There is no Zombies mode in the game right now, all this tells us is more Zombies is coming either in the form of a new game mode or more survival waves.

  • http://i.gyazo.com/f2e635fc00687f4695916877445529ef.png

    I hate when people do this… Sure it’s good advertising for CharlieIntel but people should learn to find the real sources

  • CraziBoi94

    Thats pathetic lmfao.

  • Guywithbrains

    Community logic:

    “Hey we want zombies back!”

    *Zombies return as DLC*

    “Lol SHG and everything CoD related sucks!”

    And now we come to this: no one isn’t pointing a gun to you and telling you to buy DLC. πŸ™‚

    • It’s the principle of holding back content to sell as DLC.

    • ben wills

      You’re an idiot.


      I actually can’t believe how incomprehensibly dumb some of you are.

      • Rishab Chakravarthy

        Stop acting like an entitled child

        • ben wills

          I hope they start selling the game, but for your 60 dollars you only get the menu. Each map is 5 bucks, each campaign level is 15, each gun is 2 etc.

          I want this only so you can realize how stupid you are.


        • Ugh, I know right, how dare A CONSUMER want more from these billion dollar companies?!

      • Righteous dude

        I think they barely managed to finish the bonus version. I believe it’s a fantasy to think that the dlc is complete and withheld.

        If zombies comes in the dlc with developed maps and gameplay, and it either plays similar to the zombies we know(doubtful)or, is fun in it’s own right, then they’ve got my cash.

        However you want to look at it, cod is good value – you get an awful lot for your money. There are plenty of cheaper games out there, and no one is forcing you to buy the season pass. Heck, people didn’t think the game would have zombies in it. They give people more than they expect, and their reaction is to get upset.

      • Guywithbrains

        When did they say zombies should be in the game? They just added it because zombie fanboys were mad because they didn’t got what they wanted. So I don’t know who is the idiot here but definitely not me.

  • This looks like one of these big publishers have screwed us over once again.

    I mean I’m excited for Advanced Warfare, with or without zombies…but this practice is just wrong, and we as CONSUMERS should expect more.

    I mean it’s time we stopped acting like corporate slaves who are milking us dry of our money and making these silly day one DLC/pre-order/DLC bonuses and all that other heap of garbage that we see intoxicating our industry left, right and centre.

    I mean if a game has DLC, that’s fine, but let the DLC be done right rather than hold back content from the launch of a game to sell again as DLC.

    I’m not having a go at SHG here, but rather Activision as they are the ones making these decisions. Nevertheless, it’s a disgusting practice.

    I mean if we paid $60 for this game, we should expect a full package (not saying it’s not worth it without zombies)… but if ATVI took out content (ie. zombies) to release it as DLC, that is unacceptable – something that was made within the 3 years dev cycle as an extra mode shouldn’t just be milked as DLC to try and sell the season pass…

    This isn’t ideal for us CONSUMERS. Being corporate shills is what is letting these companies nowadays take advantage of us…

    I mean lets face it, I doubt it they’re starting to make zombies now – it is certainly something that has been pre-planned way before launch hence the zombies cut scene etc…its’ not something that ATVI probably told SHG to do because of the outrage of the 3rd survival mode…

    It’s a sadistic yet clever play on ATVI’s part though….they clearly know their player base and know that 90% of them will fall for anything that they throw at them, including zombies which is arguable one CoD’s USP…and that is how easily us consumers are taken advantage of nowadays :/

    TL;DR. This IS NOT DLC done right. Holding back content form the full game is wrong. We are CONSUMERS not CORPORATE SHILLS.

    So, I’m buying the game full price, new, to support the developers and contribute to the industry in my own way, but I am definitely not buying the season pass. I am not going to be part of the problem that is plaguing our industry.

    • Confirminator

      A slave has a master; a consumer is a free man. It’s time to jump this sinking ship.

    • CraziBoi94

      You don’t even own the game according to the third party EULA either. You bought it & dont even legally own it. Makes perfect sense, right guys? & this DLC…. “oh its optional guys, you dont have to complain & buy it” Talk to me again when they make us pay for the campaign next year LOL.

      • MichiganerE

        I wouldn’t be surprised if we had to pay JUST to play the default Zombie maps at launch for Treyarch’s next game.

        • I would, People would fucking rage.

          • MichiganerE

            They should.

          • Actually thats how it works in this game i guess, :/

        • DuroNL

          If they give me the option to only buy Zombies, i’m fine with it πŸ˜›
          No base game CoD needed to enjoy Zombies would be epic!..

          Seperate Zombie DLCs, yup insta buy

          • MichiganerE

            Nope, for me.

      • HardyHarHar

        Dude every game ever made has small print saying you are buying the license to use their game, technically you don’t own any of the game in your possession.

    • Scek

      Maybe because they don’t want the “Zombie part” to be the main reason to buy the game?

      • Anonymous

        Oh yes, take out the zombie part because its the main reason people buy it. Thats stupid, they made the game, we bought the game, does it matter beyond that for the company? no, it doesn’t, instead they decide to squeeze every penny out of consumers by taking out a beloved part of the previous titles

      • Mewtilation

        And if the “Zombies” part is the main reason some of us (thousands in fact, since multiplayer is filled with ragers and pricks usually) buy the game solely for zombies? Then they lose out on customers. I sure as hell won’t be picking this up until I see zombies mode in action, and only then if I think I’ll truly enjoy it.

    • nikolai777

      This also means the zombie fans have to wait for another 3 months, as DLC 1 comes out end of January 2015…

      • Nasakilla

        3 months for the first dlc? Correct me if I’m wrong but doesn’t it usually come way later? Like a 1/4 through the year. And maybe they did that because they want you to try out the game and all the new features before people buy it soully for the zombies. AND on top of all that, be happy that zombies is even an option!

        • baconhawk1423

          Idiot, 3 months is 1/4 of a year. -_-

    • Tristan Mayer

      We have had DLC and season passes for nearly a decade it has become an integrated part of gaming. If you don’t like it than you just don’t buy it. We can’t expect games to just get rid of DLC an Season Pass just as much as we can’t expect developers to stop using controllers. It’s part of gaming, get over it or get out of it.

      • We haven’t had season passes for nearly a decade…and DLC was done right back in the days, not now however.

        And tit doesn’t make it right…I’m not going to stay silent to the BS publishers are pulling on us whether you like it or not mate.

    • GetRektBySumwunSm4rt

      You see, if you want your videogames to only cost $60, but the game developer is putting in $110 dollars of content, they would be torn apart if they released the game as $110 for a base price. Instead they have it as optional DLC. It costs a lot of money to run a development studio for THREE years so this is their chance to make back that money so they can continue to create QUALITY experiences. If they gave you everything for $60 dollars, they would go out of business, or just not create that extra content (zombies, which is well worth it) in the first place. Are you saying you want to live in a world without a zombies mode or refreshing extra maps and other DLC? Just think, a game like Ben 10 (Just because it’s the only game I can think of.) sells at the same price of a much higher budget and quality game. Are you saying that even if a studio has a larger budget for their much better game that they should only get the same amount of money? If that happened, all most developers would just create low budget games knowing they can just sell it for $60 and that people would buy it. This would lead to YOU being bored and complaining that there arent any fin games to play.

      I think they shouldent just have it as a DLC. They might lose audiences. I think it would have been better of with the game with no DLC. Then add-ons for later.

  • Gossyt

    Not buying the season pass till I know that there will be exclusive maps and things for Zombies. I don’t want the occasional bonus round on a new multiplayer map. It’s not the same.

    So a gamemode that we have in the game day 1 since WaW is know going to be in a dlc that we have to pay for. Wow just wow Activision.

  • Ryumoau

    This is pretty neat. I’ll still wait till after the first map pack is shown before i get the season pass.

    • LovekillerX

      Same here. I haven’t bought season pass earlier but looking for those maps… damn I want more!

  • The Flash

    I doubt it’ll be anything like 3arcs, which i guess is the right thing to happen, and its this that may appeal to most people but to me it doesnt change my opinion on not buying AW

    • brad

      Well hopefully not, because they aren’t treyarch. People always complain that all games are the same, so you would hope it would be different.

      • The Flash

        I’m not one of those silly haters and so have never complained the games not changing, 3arcs magicness and uniqueness made me love their zombie mode – i doubt this will be in AWs so wont be my street

  • πŸ˜€

  • brad

    People need to realize, they are a business and they are there to make money. Simple as that. If you don’t want to pay for more, don’t pay. If your so pissed they didn’t add it into the regular game, don’t pay. Thats how you speak to them. But for the rest of us, we will gladly pay for the product and have fun playing the game!

    • ben wills

      I guess ethics means nothing to you. Or intelligence.

      • brad

        Lol good one bro. Its very simple, man. If you are all “ethical” then don’t buy. Its a business. You buy goods or services, and they choose what they sell, and for how much. Its up to the consumer to decide whether to purchase or not.

    • I guess we should just be corporate shills then, and let these businesses screw us over, and not demand more as consumers? smh…

      FYI, I’m buying the full game because it looks fantastic, but I am not buying the season pass. Hopefully others will do the same to send them a message.

      • brad

        Thats fine, but majority of people will buy it, including me.

      • Kobrah

        I will buy it if it looks good. Will wait to see though

      • Zombie king

        Do u think u moanin about haveing to buy a season pass and dlc and othere extra content on the game will stop them doing it that way the game is world wide u and the otheres that are moaning r just very smallll fish in a veryyyyy bigggggggg ocean thay have and will continue to make billions off season passes and dlc so iva get a grip and buy it instead of cutting your noise off to spite your face its a game and its only money money can b made everyday buy you me everyone ie enjoy spending it

    • Guest

      Nicely said. I don’t get why people are so angry. Ever since CoD started doing DLC, people have been complaining that there’s never enough content to justify getting the season pass. Now they’re adding an entire mode and all people can complain about is, “but Treyarch includes it in their game”… AND… This is not treyarch’s zombies, and nobody is forcing you to buy it. If you want the season pass get it, if not, don’t, but don’t try to change others attitudes just because you’re upset. Before this, I wasn’t truly interested in the season pass, but now I’m getting it for sure, as I’m sure many others will as well. Sorry to go off on a rant like this, but I just wish people would enjoy the game and stop making something huge out of nothing.

      • brad

        Thanks brah! I 100% agree with you. If I want something, ill buy it. Thats the way it works being a consumer.

        • Guest

          No problem… I just don’t get it. SHG or any other CoD studio could put more content, but people would still find a way to complain…I mean honestly how much do you need to justify your purchase of a season pass, another complete game added in. Lol

      • Zombie king

        I will alllll ways spend money on zombies best thing about cod is the zombie maps iv had advance frm pre order and played once

    • T

      Please stop playing videogames entirely, it would make the industry better for the rest of us.

      I’m sorry not everyone likes having DLC shoved up their ass in every game like you.

      • brad

        Lol nice.

    • Zombie king

      Well sad lad ?

  • Mikey9835

    TBH I’d wish Sledgehammer stuck with their own ideas instead of catering for the butthurt zombie fans. I think I’m the only one who prefers survival against zombies because they shoot back and you have think about your strategy before going in. The best zombies can do is slap you to death. If zombie fans want to kill zombies just play the one of the thousands of zombie games out there. Anyway looks like I’ll have to buy the season pass, i wanted to buy it anyway but Infinity ward betrayed me last year with Ghosts. Now enough complaining Day Zero tommorow and I can’t wait! πŸ˜€

  • ThatOnePerson

    I give it a month before everyone goes back to BO2.

  • Drasadex

    I wonder if they’re going to make the mode use Multiplayer maps or use custom maps (like what Treyarch does)…

  • Willekeurig persoon

    I said so


    Hey does anyone want to play Ghost with me? ……..anyone?……LOL! JK!

    • David Sync

      What’s this game u speak of?

    • Dipper

      Gho.. sts…?..? is that a game?

    • brad

      I actually liked Ghosts better than BO2…thats just my opinion.

      • Kobrah

        That’s the wrong opinion.

        • why, is it the wrong opinion may i ask

          • Kobrah

            You are in the vast minority

          • i am in the minority yes that is true, but that doesnt make BLOPS II any better

  • Rob Schneider

    I kinda get the feeling that Activision forced SHG into making a mediocre survival mode, knowing that most fans didn’t have any desire for it to return, and made zombies be DLC only.
    It would’ve been so much better for the consumers if they didn’t bother with survival at all (or made that DLC if you really wanted it) then gave us zombies with the actual game.
    For all we know SHG could’ve been working on zombies before they did survival tbf because why would they put their focus on a survival mode that won’t make the majority of the consumers happy. Another annoying way for Activision to milk money out of fans again ffs.

    • brad

      Its really a brilliant marketing scheme, isn’t it?

      • Rob Schneider

        Unfortunately yes πŸ™

      • Unfortunately yes, one that is from a publisher that definitely knows their dedicated fan base lol πŸ˜›

        I mean it’s clever on their part and from people who don’t mind dishing out an extra $50 on DLC…I mean personally, I have before, with Blops 2, but I don’t think I will here.

        Anyway, have you go the game early or is your copy arriving tomorrow? What platform are you getting it on and what edition? πŸ˜€

        • Rob Schneider

          Omg haha we both said “unfortunately yes” at the same time!
          Btw I 100% agree with every single comment you’ve posted on this.

          • LOL I just noticed too! Haha, great minds think alike! πŸ˜›

            I also agree with the comments you’ve made too. You have summed this situation up perfectly!

          • Rob Schneider

            Aha yeah
            Tbh. I hope that the DLC is shit so then I won’t be missing out on too much lol
            As CI stated in this post “There’s no confirmation if this is a separate mode or just more bonus waves for Exo-Survival.”
            I feel like it might actually just be survival with a zombies look and design. Like what we saw in the bonus wave. Even though it was only the bonus round, it was pretty damn basic and if there were to be more to it like a full mode, then they would’ve marketed the hell out of it, especially since pre order numbers were down. Also, people were happy to pay $49.99 or what ever it cost for the season pass for just the map packs, so if an entire mode was included with the season pass then it would’ve cost more. Final point: Activision knows that this tactic will piss off the majority of the community, so if it turns out to be just additional waves or a survival re-skin, then they might feel like the community won’t be as annoyed because we wouldn’t be missing out on much. However, the cut scene makes it seem like a fourth mode.
            Jesus didn’t realise how long this was haha sorry πŸ™‚

        • brad

          Yeah this isn’t activisions first rodeo. But ill be picking it up tonight at 11:01. I got the Xbox 360 and Xbox One standard editions and I’m gonna buy the Season Pass as well. How about you?

          • I’ve pre-ordered the Day Zero edition on PS4 and Amazon says it’s arriving tomorrow (which I hope it does since when I pre-ordered BO2, it arrived 4 days late LOL)

            I personally can’t wait!

            I hope you enjoy it! πŸ˜€

            Also, how come the two versions? Are you doing that free next gen upgrade thing?

  • It’s a sadistic yet clever play on ATVI’s part though….they clearly know their player base and know that 90% of them will fall for anything that they throw at them, including zombies which is arguable one CoD’s USP…and that is how easily us consumers are taken advantage of nowadays :/

  • Aw man

    I feel bad for all the ppl who got tattoos of the ghost symbol. Before actually playing the game

  • Adam

    I would rather SHG do a different co-op than zombies. They’re getting old.

    • They got Exo-survival

      • Adam

        Which was already done in MW3 and is boring.

        • Yeah but u said u wanted co-op without zombies, I wouldn’t mind co-op campaign though don’t know why they stop doing it after WaW

  • Tep Kok

    Can’t wait for Black Ops 3

    “Pay only $99.99 to get access to all 14 multiplayer maps!” (Maps will come seperately for non-collector’s edition users at $5 per map).

  • NiftyGam3r

    I’m a little confused, so if we get the season pass, the mode unlocks or it will unlock/download when the first dlc comes out on January?

  • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

    Cool maybe next year they charge us the campaign as a DLC.

  • king wolfe

    They screwed themselves on this. Projected sales for this game are the lowest of any previous Cods. The zombie community is huge and had they promoted this mode from the start i can guarantee those pre sales wouldve competed with games like Ghosts and Black Ops. This seems like they created this mode quick after the response from the community when co op was revealed and everyone was disappointed. This game mode i bet is still in the making

  • ScOott

    Some people have lost all sanity … If u want the dlc buy it if not don’t… We have a story mode, we have a multiplayer mode, we have survival mode… I’m happy to pay for the game it doesn’t feel incomplete, and if I won’t an extra mode il happily pay a bit more …

  • wtflolsmh

    Alot of people need to understand they cant have a zombie standalone mode because if so then what would treyarch do?

    • Drasadex

      do zombies anyway(?) lol

    • Gossyt

      Treyarch have their own story and ideas. From what we’ve seen SHG zombies is completely different. They originate from a streak in the game, move differently and everything feels new. I’m pretty sure as long as SHG don’t take Treyarch’s storyline, both companies would be fine to use Zombies.

  • We should have seen this coming after the one round zombies leak. Why would they bother to animate zombie behavior for something so limited? Also, does Treyarch continue to do zombies now or do they have something new up their sleeves?

    • Hopefully they do a real zombies campaign

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I’d say Treyarch will do zombies. That’s what their best at and that’s what everyone wants.

  • k5berry

    And now the pandemonium ensues. Is it classic style zombies? Is it a completely new zombies mode branching off of the Riot Exo-Survival ending? And how will the series deal with having two different zombies modes in two different arches? As for what it is actually gonna be, I’d say it’s gonna be a completely new mode, as I referred to earlier, continuing from the ending of the Riot exo-survival thing (i don’t even know the specifics as I don’t have the game). I think when Gamestop says “zombies” are coming back, they mean zombies as in the mythical creature, just a zombies mode in general, not zombies as in classic style zombies. But i don’t think it’s “CORPORATE HOLDING US DOWN”, because it logically and chronologically makes sense the way they’re doing it and rolling it out, if what I’ve hypothesized is correct. One way or another, now there’s gonna be confusion over having different zombie modes, people bitching over having to buy DLC even though it’s (presumably) apart of a well established storyline within the game, and others bitching about not having classic zombies back, even though that would make zero f’ing sense to include in AW. Gah. The Dolphins won, why am I ranting?

  • Juses

    Yay! A mediocre zombie dlc!

    • Atomolic

      STFU seriously all you do is comment negative stuff it could possibly be better than treyarch’s zombies

      • …..

        Edit: Don’t know why 3

      • Juses

        Pretty sure I’m barely negative. By negative do you mean barely believing rumor/leaks? Also did you not see the gameplay? The zombies are dumb. They don’t feel like zombies, they feel like humans with a skin on them. They look like the zombies from turned πŸ˜›

        There’s no way this mode will be better than treyarchs :/

  • Siftblade of Rivia

    My PSN says I unlock it in 6 hours. That’s 8PM PST, not 9PM. Anyone else? Or is this just a daylight savings error?

  • TuTKoKmoLLi

    Here you have it people. The moment you have all been waiting for. Stop complaining that it’s a fucking DLC. It wasn’t supposed to be in the game. Now they are working on it just for your asses beacause you can’t stay another fucking year without playing Zombies. Of course it would be a DLC they haven’t finished it yet.

  • logic buns

    Shit people have to shut up and Just play the game you unlock a full map after riot bonus wave. continuing as the person leaping out of the helicopter. Just play it don’t rage about it when you know nothing.

  • Asks for zombies -> Co-op mode gets revealed -> gets disappointed -> Zombies announced -> gets disappointed again -> ???

    • Aaron V

      We’ll see.

      • Rodoe528

        I hope we don’t have to wait 3 months for dlc one to be a full zombie mode

  • skeetshootin

    I wish they would announce some gun dlc, this is the worst starting line up ive seen in a cod game. Half of of the guns are burst and no selective fire attatchment….fail

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      They already said there would be guns include with the DLC. Also, there are things called variants that people seem to forget. Those variants can turn burst fire guns to full auto guns, and vice versa. Built in select fire.

      • skeetshootin

        Have yet to see the full auto variants…..

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Once all the variants are posted you’ll see them.

          • skeetshootin

            Well I hope youre right, I really like the arx160, but hate burst fire, have u seen the full auto variant or how are u so sure?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Pretty sure I saw it in an early gameplay stream or a gamescom video. Like 90% sure.

          • skeetshootin

            Hope youre right, otherwise this game is not gonna be that good imo

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            A lack of full auto guns is a deal breaker than you? I heard most guns are pretty evenly balanced anyways. No OP guns like the SCAR or AN94.

          • skeetshootin

            If not given the option, then yes it is, because my alternative is choose a burst fire rifle or a laser beam, why dont they just call it COD star wars…..

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            There are still tons of full auto guns that you can use…

          • skeetshootin

            None that I really like….

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Did you look at BO2 gameplay before it launched and say “Hey, I love that gun!” without ever using it?

          • zombiefreak935


          • Siftblade of Rivia

            That had nothing to do with what I was saying. And that was in Ghosts, not AW.

  • Uzair Chief

    It seems like adding zombies was a last minute decision seeing the crazy demand for zombies after they announced their exo survival.

    Hence the bonus zombie wave added to the exo survival, so they could let you know that zombie mode is coming, but simply isn’t done to introduce it with the launch.

    Though that’s my theory.

  • Anonymous

    To be honest, the fact that there is planned dlc before the game has even been officialy released across the world is ridiculous why people support this by buying the game is beyond me. Oh here pay X amount of money for our game, don’t forget to buy our dlc! I’m sure most people would prefer a pushed back release date then just be conned out of money they can’t be bothered to put in the game for everyone, don’t we pay enough for games at the price they are already?

    • Your Dumb

      It’s part of operating a business… If they don’t have it planned and then have DLC announced and can’t finish it what would you do, whine and bitch.. So instead they make everything head of time and advertise it all…. Seems like smart business to me.

  • Convery

    If yous want more info on the uppcomming modes, here’s what’s included in the release: http://puu.sh/cASo0/60b2252031.txt

  • Stephen G. Perez

    Not bad when you think of it. They ave the co op set as survival. Then you beat survival, and it starts zombies. So now we get four game modes that are all good SO WOULD YOU ALL STOP BITCHING.

    • Juses

      3 gamemodes that’s good. *

      • brad

        Thats an opinion

        • Juses

          Pretty sure campaign is not a game mode.

          • brad

            Shut up you know what he meant by game modes. Campaign, multiplayer, exosurvival and DLC Zombies. Thats 4, unless you cannot count.

          • Juses

            Y u so mean ?

            Sorry I didn’t get my daily dose of meth

          • BrandonTr

            No one said zombies was going to be a game mode. Nothing has been said other than zombies being in dlc

  • MountainDewIt

    Why are people complaining? If anything we are getting more content. There are still three great gamemodes in CoD AW like usual, and now if you buy the season pass, which is the same price as it has always been, you not only get 4 map packs, but you get an extra map, new weapons, and zombies. It seems to me that they are rewarding the person who buys the season pass by giving more content than milking money, but whatever, CoD fans would still complain even if everything was free ?

  • i dont know how to feel about this, i mean Advanced Warfare AND Black Ops 3 will have zombies for 3 years or so, i think they will have explored the zombie genre too much at the end of Black ops 3, why didnt sledgehammer do Robots instead! smh

    • brad

      Lol what is REALLY the difference between zombies and robots? They just have a different skin. Its the same mode, just fighting different things

      • i meant robots, not cyborg zombies. and robots could have special attacks moves e.t.c. and the storyline and maps couldve been much more interesting and fresh than zombies

  • Jack Markley

    50 dollars for a mode you already have in an older version? sounds like a deal.

  • CookieChairman

    Including 1-3 instances (maps) of a new gamemode in the vanilla game is one thing. Restricting the entire game mode to DLC is a pretty big dick move.

  • Nate

    Well I find it all to be a load of bullshit. “Leaking” zombie footage so close to their release date. Ha. All a tactful ploy. Now they’re claiming it’s in the dlc? Well thats strange because in the dlc trailer nothing is mentioned about zombies. So I think its bullshit. Its really sad, too, because Treyarch said that the last map on Black Ops II is the last zombies map their creating. So I really had high hopes. Screw you Sledgehammer Im destroying this huge let down of a game.

  • DrDankinstein

    My question is do you have to buy the season pass or will they make it to where you can purchase zombies separate when it comes out. Cuz I’m interested in zombies but I can do without all the other maps…

  • hungryandrew

    What does Treyarch have to say about all this. I mean, Sledgehammer basically made Black Ops 2.1

    • Ryumoau

      …….and thats a bad thing because? I know you are trolling but at least make your comment actually be a criticism of the game and not a praise. Thats not how trolling works. :/

  • Ryumoau

    They are selling Zombies as a stand alone thing outside of season pass? Thats pretty awesome for zombie fans. I wish they would sell map packs without the co-op in it at a cheaper price. πŸ™

  • Theycallmeoj

    (IMO) I really hope it is a separate mode! I disagree with you saying that zombies is treyarches “property” I think zombies should be on advanced warfare, but I also think we are getting fucked over for having to buy separate maps and possibky other modes for the same price as the game itself. WE ALREADY BOUGHT THE GAME!! Give us the content that should ethically go along with it! No video game is worth $100+ period. And you have to pay that in order to get the full content of the game.


    Why not just file transfer from a buddy and give him like$20 for the season pass yall thinking too much about it for realz…


    Written by “ANNOYED COD AW” player

    I know itΒ΄s a little bit late to comment now, but IΒ΄m really impressed by how fanboys of the earlier zombie mode got angry because they said this looked like shit. Personally I thought the gameplay of the zombies mode looked amazing, even better because the zombies had no glowing eyes. But now IΒ΄m disappointed because the developers added glowing eyes in the newest trailer, it would be enough to see which zombies were more of a threat if they just had exoΒ΄s or some kind of ability. Now IΒ΄m really pissed at sledgehammer and IΒ΄m going to be even more pissed if I find out that there will be no option for turning off the glowing eyes in a dlc prized as a game.
    And everyone who disagrees are in need of a big F***K YOU!

    Sorry for my grammar.
