Treyarch announced this weekend that the new Call of Duty
game, World at War
, would include a controversial new co-op mode that will be unlockable after the singleplayer campaign is complete.
The game mode will be a survival variant that features up to four players who must work together to survive continuing waves of Nazi zombies who have an awful craving for fresh, patriotic flesh.
This survival mode will apparently have some strategy elements woven into it too and, by wiping out swathes of these unliving national socialists players will be able to earn money that can be invested in various upgrades. Players will apparently be able to unlock and buy new weapons as they progress, as well as add new defences on to the base they are defending.
The new mode, which was announced on Gametrailers TV
by Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia, has proven controversial with some fans who see the addition of it as a move away from the serious traditions of the game. Others see it as a half-assed attempt to try and copy Left4Dead
Personally, we don't care. Zombies are always
Call of Duty: World at War
is set for release mid-November on all platforms except the PSP, but in the mean time you can tell us what you think about it all in the forums
