There was once a time when the undead had no place in military shooters. That age was thankfully consigned to history with the launch of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies add-ons for home consoles, and now it's time for Android owners to arm themselves with semi-authentic World War II weaponry and do battle with reanimated corpses.
That's right, today sees the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies on the Google Play Store. The game is a zombie survival shooter, in the style of the zombie modes in Call of Duty console titles. Classic maps like Kino Der Toten, Ascension, and Call of the Dead: Director’s Cut make a return on mobile, and there's also "Dead-Ops Arcade," a 50-level wave-based survival game similar to Gears of War's Horde mode.
For the moment, CODBLOPS Zombies is exclusive to Sony's Xperia Play and Xperia S. That means if you're rocking different hardware, you'll need to wait to for the 30 day exclusivity period to expire before you can take on swarms of Nazi cadavers.
The game is free to download, with the option of purchasing CoD points through the app to use for revives and other in-game abilities. If you've got an Xperia S or Xperia Play, you can hit the Google Play link to download now. We've also got the full press release from Activision after the break.
