COD: A Whole New Breed of Zombies

Activision has revealed a new game mode for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Exo Zombies. The mode will be included with the first DLC pack, Havoc to be released in January.  The DLC will be released for the Microsoft systems first, then come to Sony and PC later in the month.  I get a bit of a World War Z (the film, not the book) feel from the trailer.  Check it out here and let me know what you think.

Friday Features: Into the Dead

Friday Features is a new biweekly post that will highlight a game, book, story, project, etc. that I would like to recommend.  Mostly it will be smaller, less known pieces that I enjoy and want to help get the word out about.  If you have any recommendations for future Friday Features, or if you have a piece that you would like to be featured, contact me at the email listed on the contact page.

Title: Into the Dead
Media: Mobile Game
Developer: PikPok
Availability: Android, Apple, and Amazon App Stores
Price: Free

Into the dead is a first person action game.  With four game modes (classic, massacre, hardcore, and flashlight) it has a high playability.  You are constantly moving forward either dodging or killing zombies, utilizing weapon crates and perks to delve deeper into the ranks of the dead.  There are missions with 3 objectives each, and by completing these missions you unlock better weapons to use on your runs. 

So far ive only played on classic and massacre, but it’s pretty addicting.  It’s one of those games where you constantly want to beat your previous high score, and the leaderboard makes it more interesting as well.  You can connect through facebook to compete with your friends, and if you do, you unlock a free WWII zombie skins pack.

I highly recommend you check this game out.

Zombies return to Call of Duty

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is now out, and it was leaked earlier in the week that the popular zombies mode will be returning.  This came as a bit of a surprise since the mode was only done in the Treyarch games.  The futuristic game play of Advanced Warfare could make for interesting play in Zombies. It looks like the zombies mode will be DLC, and is included in the season pass. 

I won’t be getting COD:AW any time soon, but if you’ve picked it up, let me know what you think about the game and the inclusion of zombies.

Summer Camp: The Slasher Video Game

Summer Camp is an upcoming horror survival game for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.  Made by Gun Media, they wanted to get the feel of an 80’s slasher and do it right, so they’re bringing in the guru of gore, Tom Savini.  This was enough to spark my interest, but on top of that, they’re bringing in Harry Manfredini to do the soundtrack.  If you’re not familiar with who he is, he’s the creator of the iconic “chh, chh, chh, chhh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ahhh” from Friday the 13th.

The game is set at Camp Forest Green (a camp name used in Friday the 13th Part VI). You will play as a camp counselor and work with other counselors to escape from the killer.  You can also take the role of the killer and track down and kill all of the camp counselors.  It’s also said that this will be the first entry in a series.
