Call of Duty – Black Ops: Zombie gyroscope testing video released
The Call of Duty franchise has a funky sense of humor. Want proof? Check their trailer video of a fast food restaurant detailing their DLC map offerings. Juiciest segment: the short order cooks swats at a cockroach. For further proof of COD’s funny bone, check the newest trailer added to the Call of Duty official Youtube page.
Lasting only over 20 seconds long, the video treats the user to footage of a zombie strapped to a gyroscope screaming its little undead head off. While the reference to the new Call of Duty – Black Ops’ Rezurection DLC is quite obvious, the video is positioned as footage of testing performed on a hapless zombie. Kinda gives the term “stress testing” a new twist, no?
Anyway, we are sure the buzz this Call of Duty – Black Ops video generates will do nothing but help maintain the buzz for its successor, Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 3. Since MW3 is locked in a battle royal with Battlefield 3 for first person shooter supremacy, every little bit of buzz helps. If anything, this is an example of Activision tapping the power of its installed base of Call of Duty players to call them to attention regarding the new DLC and keeping the brand fresh in people’s minds.
