The gaming studio is routinely coming up with elaborate updates dedicated to zombie mode.

Twitter reacts to Treyarch’s news about Black Ops Cold War zombie mode

The latest news has shattered the negative rumors. This revelation was surely going to attract reactions from the fans, as more rumors of standalone zombie titles continue to make their round.

The zombie mode has barely ever gone completely free-to-play, and the integration with Warzone is something new. Players have definitely loved the inclusion of this mode, as it will also pave the way to further the storyline.

A standalone or a free-to-play game is definitely going to help enhance the zombie mode’s popularity. However, this fan disagrees with the rumors, as he deemed it a dangerous move that will kill classic zombie mode.

More fans showed up on the thread, as the novel approach to the zombie mode is going against golden days.

This fan pointed out a crucial flaw with the latest iteration of zombie games. He called it a dumbed-down version from what it originally was, and it is favorable for a newer audience.

This fan suggested that the BOCW zombie mod does not feel like what it used to. It does not contain the same roster of characters, and their personalities are not appealing enough.
