Call of Duty: Black Ops II
Treyarch Teases Next Black Ops II Zombies DLC?

Treyarch is teasing what could be the Zombies portion of Call of Duty: Black Ops II’s fourth and final DLC pack.

Over on the developer’s Facebook page, the developer has started posting odd images of messages in an album called “Letters from the Field.”

The first says, “September 22, 1917: When we began the site excavation, our group could not have predicted the dark path down which our work would lead us.

“The Doctor remains both adamant and optimistic that the potential applications for the new found element are worth the associated risks. I concur with the sentiment, but feel increasingly anxious as to the changes I am seeing in my oldest friend…”

The second reads, “October 6, 1917: The emperor grows concerned that the barbarians drive for mechanization may soon yield weapons more devastating than anything the world has ever known.

“I am honored to act as his trusted agent and will insure that any such weapons are rescued for the benefit of Japan.”

So, wildly speculating, the letters seem to relate to something zombi-fied and possible set in Japan? Or maybe featuring Zombie Samurai or Ninjas? 

We don’t know anything for sure. Have a look at the letters below and see what you think.

Doctor and Japan....

I think it means Richtofen and Takeo.. so we may soon get american and russian papers = Dempsey and Nikolai?

And again the re-appearing year 1917 - what does that mean? Timetravel?

Zombies are why I don't play the Treyarch games at all now. I just don't enjoy it at all. I am pretty bored with CoD in general but may try ghosts for poots and giggles.

@ 5; I'm not sure that sentence even makes sense?!

OT; Bring it... plus I am super-psyched to see what XBONE Zombags will be like:)!

@1 I agree. In each of the DLC's released the people who enjoy Multiplayer more get 4 new maps while the Zombie players only get one. I understand that the Zombie maps are rather large with more to offer in content and achievements but I think an all Zombie DLC should be in place here seeing as they did it previously and the DLC format for BO2 has been the same as BO1. If I does happened then I think will see the Zombie maps from BO1.

#5 I agree entirely about Zombies. In fact, the moment anyone mentions zombies in anything I lose complete interest

The thing with BO1 and it's final DLC being all zombie, was that they had the Hardened Edition maps from WaW left over, fans were calling for them to be delivered who didn't have the HE... it was an easy cash-in.

They haven't got that this time round. I'd be VERY surprised they go for an all zombie DLC pack again, despite your going by the first BO game.

Surprised, but not disappointed. :P

I don't understand why zombies are in these games anyways? Aren't there enough games in that genre? I would rather tackle MP achievements than zombie achievements.

These Easter egg driven zombie maps can kiss my ass. They need to make the achievements an actual challenge. Like get to wave 35 or so many points.

Sweet can't wait. Only reason I play Black Ops 2 is for zombies. I hate the multiplayer.

It's Call of duty 4 with Zombies. Nothing else has changed in the CoD Franchise since then. Besides adding different modes/game types..

Whatever it is, I bet it will be awesome as all of the content from Treyarch. I am still waiting for sale on BO2 DLC though, so maybe that will finally happen with release of final DLC...

Sort of sounds maybe like a story about how the original 4 (Richtofen, Takeo, Dempsey and Nikolai) from Zombies met.

Zombies all the way. This story is getting so good I even went back to Black Ops 1 to replay those quest based EEs. Not to mention getting caught up on the wiki sites to learn more about what's going on. The storyline here is definitely captivating.

Why was @3 voted down so harshly? He's right. There's people out there that don't play zombies modes. I don't know about him, but I bought the season pass. It's bad enough that for every pack, they put out at least one zombies map that took the place of a potential multiplayer map. But if they fuck me out of my cash by taking my money in advance and pooping out another batch of Zombies maps, it will be the death of season passes.

I already say that I am not buying another season pass ever again, except for something like WWE 13, whose content was detailed alongside the season pass. If the season pass content is going to stay a mystery until the day it's released, I'm not doing it. The sales that'll eventually happen for the content will be a better deal than the season pass. But again, if they take all the season passes that were purchased and distribute a zombies-only pack, they are going to have a LOT of pissed off customers. There's no way they're going to deal with that. A zombies-only pack is not going to happen.

@23 Cry me a fucking river. Just because you think one zombies map takes the place of one shit multiplayer map doesn't make it true. Zombies is just as, if not much more, popular than multiplayer. The fanbase is huge. And it's also a reason plenty of us bought the season pass. Zombies maps offer an infinite amount of replayability. Whereas one extra, potentially shit map, wouldn't.

You MP fanboys can grin and take it. Because there are plenty of us out there that like zombies just fine. And for that reason, it isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

24: Okay, so, because you like Zombies, everybody else that paid their admission price can go fuck themselves? Don't be an asshole. It's not like I'm *against* Zombies. I would have been perfectly fine with two separate season passes, one for Zombies and one for multiplayer. But instead, they got greedy and bundled them all together, making people who don't play online also pay for multiplayer maps, and making people who don't play Zombies pay for Zombies maps.

And I never said that Zombies is "going anywhere." I said that an all-Zombies pack is not going to happen. It's not. Treyarch would get too many complaints, and for their next game, they'd lose a huge number of season pass purchases by disgruntled customers. They can't afford it.

My issue, if you could learn, A) to read, and B) not be an Internet tough guy, is that people who don't use Zombies content, have to deal with receiving a Zombies map with every download, possibly taking the place of a multiplayer map, definitely taking up space on a hard drive, and not receiving any break for not using that content. But that complaint goes both ways, because the "Zombies fanboys," whatever the fuck that means, have to pay for four to five multiplayer maps that they don't use, as opposed to only paying for their Zombies content.

Just because I don't like Zombies doesn't mean you have to disagree with everything that comes out of my mouth. Those two packs should be separate, because most people play one or the other, but not both.

I understand that the zombie shit is gettin watered down yo and as for more MP? Are you kidding yeah I love MP all it Is a bunch of people sniping everyone you run around looking to have fun only to be shot at from across the map while your behind a building and shit! Wtf! Yeah that's fun,if people played the MP the right way with everyone brawling and shit and working as a team (like a few cats I know) than its fun but when people pull that hiding a d sniper every round it gets boring fast its like you spend all the time looking for them like its the honeycomb fuckin hideout damnnnnnnnnn

I'm down for a all Zombie game be different if they stick to their cool storylines

and yes "Ghosts" looks fuckin horrible like been there done that but hey I could be wrong

People play like twats online, that is true, but it's something to keep us online gamers busy until the next Infinity Ward train wreck. I don't like calling Infinity Ward's games train wrecks, so I welcome them to prove me wrong after the abomination that MW3 was.

Samurais died with the Tokugawa Shogunate in the Boshin War of 1868-9. If this letter is from post Bushido Imperial Japan (which it is-1917), I wouldn't hold your breath for Samurais, cool as it may be.
