The secret history of Call of Duty’s Zombies

The new Shadow's of Evil Zombies experience is almost here

Treyarch’s Zombies is still my all-time favorite co-op shooter. It’s a chilling challenge that pits you and some friends against relentless waves of zombies. Your arsenal: constant communication, careful teamwork, and whatever firearms you can scrounge from the all-important Mystery Box. It’s demanding of its players but, in the end, an immensely rewarding experience that always pays off.

With the release of Call of Duty Black Ops 3 and its new Shadows of Evil Zombies experience upon us, it seemed like a perfect chance to take a look back at how Treyarch‘s vision has evolved throughout the years. And, naturally, get a peek into its future with Shadows of Evil.

Chug a Juggernog, load your Ray Gun, and watch our in-depth discussion with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Zombies and Campaign Director Jason Blundell to learn how it all began.

I would like to comment on this week’s loss of some albums from Century Media Records on Spotify, which was caused by some technical problems after acquisition by Sony. I know you don’t see a text about metal music on this forum very often. Because metal bands rarely record tracks for video games. The problem I wanted to point out is that there was not a word of “sorry” from any of the interested parties. I guess it’s because metal community is a minority, not promoted in “big” media. But if you look at the profiles of CMR artists on Spotify, how many monthly listeners they have, you realise these numbers are quite high. Just like gamers were looked at once, as aliens, not being understood or supported by big businesses, but still carrying on. I could go on for hours, well, probably days, how varied the metal scene is and how much artistic value is in them, but maybe I should point out one thing that stands out: they are not afraid to talk about difficult subjects. They are David Ca...

The problem I wanted to point out is that there was not a word of “sorry” from any of the interested parties. I guess it’s because metal community is a minority, not promoted in “big” media. But if you look at the profiles of CMR artists on Spotify, how many monthly listeners they have, you realise these numbers are quite high. Just like gamers were looked at once, as aliens, not being understood or supported by big businesses, but still carrying on. I could go on for hours, well, probably days, how varied the metal scene is and how much artistic value is in them, but maybe I should point out one thing that stands out: they are not afraid to talk about difficult subjects. They are David Cage of musical spectrum, their catalogues are full of “Heavy Rain” albums or “Beyond: Two Souls” albums. It’s hard to promote them as mostly they are not cheerful albums with happy lyrics. But like “Heavy Rain” they don’t leave you with only one possibility of a conclusion or a clear judgement. It’s up to you to decide what you agree with and what not. Although frequently they also have quite clear message, sick and twisted things are shown as they are: sick and twisted. There’s no pretending that something evil is good, and contrary to common opinion about metalheads their view on the world is mostly pretty clear: truth is truth and a lie is a lie, for most of the bands it’s true. I’m writing “most of the bands”, because there are always exceptions.
Anyway, to celebrate this huge hiccup, I would like to encourage you all to give it a go and try some metal music, it is really worth to listen to something “underground”, lyrics that you have to read few times (as it’s not always easy to understand growl or shriek ;-))) before you get their meaning, lyrics that make you think and make you ask yourself my favourite question of all times: “What if…?” And spend a second thinking about those “geeky nerds” headbanging to their favourite track and why not ask them what it is and what the lyrics are about. Or just listen to at least 1 random metal track tonight. And if you don’t know where to start, you can always ask me for suggestions.
