Call of Duty: Black Ops | ‘Rezurrection’ announced – all zombies all of the time

Yep.  You can’t get enough of our sexy, decaying bodies, so Treyarch thought it might be fun to let you re-visit four World at War zombie maps for the fourth DLC for Black Ops.  And if that wasn’t enough, they’re adding a brand new map to the deal too.  As we said – all zombies this time around.

The Rezurrection DLC pack will be available on Xbox 360 on August 23rd.

Four are remastered and upgraded versions of the World at War Zombies maps that started it all – Nacht der Untoten, Verruckt, Shi No Numa and Der Riese. If you were introduced to Zombies gameplay with Black Ops, these are the historical maps that will fill in some of the backstory for you — and in addition to updated weapons and polish, they each still have their own surprises to offer. A limited number of fans have already gotten to play these maps — they were included in the Hardened and Prestige editions of Black Ops — but keep reading, because there’s a nice surprise in store for you near the end of this article.

If you are an owner of the Hardened or Prestige editions of Black Ops, you already have the four upgraded classic maps thanks to the redemption code that came in the package; that was a perk for buying a limited edition of the game. So, as a thank-you to the hardcore fans for their support from the start, Hardened and Prestige edition owners can download Rezurrection for free on August 23rd. We’ll get into the logistics of exactly how it will all work later, but the short version is you’ll be able to go into your Download History and re-download the classic pack you already own, and the fresh download will include the new Moon map. And you’ll also get the soundtrack and theme, too. It’s not that tricky, but like I said, full logistical info will come closer to the release date.
