Well this is awesome. Even if you’re not a “Call of Duty” fan, you gotta admit, they really go all out for their Zombie game mode. Last year, they let us play as horror movie icons (Freddy and Buffy, to name just two) fighting a legion of undead.
This year, for “Black Ops 2”, it’s mobsters in “Mob of the Dead”. Or, more precisely, famous actors who have played some famous mob characters in their varied careers — Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano, Michael Madsen, and Ray Liotta. In an obvious nod to “Goodfellas”, Riotta narrates this trailer for “Mob of the Dead”, introducing the characters and, of course, their nicknames.
So what’s the story about? Yes, there is a story. (Well, sort of.)
Four mobsters find themselves trapped on the notorious Alcatraz Island. They soon find out though that they are not alone in the prison cell blocks. Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano, Michael Madsen, and Ray Liotta star in one of the most frightening Zombies experiences yet.
Basically, kill zombies and live.
“Mob of the Dead” will be part of “Uprising”, the second DLC Map Pack for “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2” that will be first available to you Xbox kids this April 16th. If it’s like all the other map pack releases, everyone else will get it, oh, maybe a month later.
