Black Ops Cold War developers talk about DOA origins and what’s new in Rise of the Mamaback

Developers describe DOA as, “What started out as a fun little side project-turned-hidden mode has evolved into one of our favorite traditions of the Black Ops series.

Talking about his brainchild, David King said, “Dead Ops Arcade was inspired by the type of games that I used to enjoy during my childhood in the ‘80s. The mode started off as a simple homage to classic arcade games, and things just kept getting wilder from there. The dedication that our fans continue to show to DOA inspires us to keep pushing this mode into new places.”

The second installment of the mode came with Black Ops 3. DOA 2: Cyber’s avenging only increased the popularity of the mode with various new additions. The mode allowed players to jump into first-person for increased periods and use weapons from Black Ops 3.

This brings us to the rendition of the mode. In DOA 3 from Cold War, players now face their biggest foe yet: the mother of Cosmic and Cyber known as the Mamaback! With everything Treyarch is doing to keep Zombies exciting, they have some amazing plans for DOA 3 as well.

Rise of Mamaback brings along “challenging new Arenas, open world spaces full of mysteries and secrets, randomly generated dungeons, bonus rooms with special rewards, incredible weapons, more power pickups, and over 30 types of enemies spanning the entire history of Black Ops Zombies.”
