Nightmares

You wake up only to be told by Dr. Salim that they are dead, and that the you must recount their memories. You discover that Dr. Salim is in fact Deimos, the demigod responsible for unleashing the undead plague on humanity. Deimos had entered the your mind when you interfaced with Hall, and attempts to manipulate them into opening a portal to his home dimension, Malus. Basically Story mode with Zombies!

Zombies

Here it is! My favorite game-play. Zombies features a new XP progression system, which allows players to unlock items in a similar way to multiplayer and campaign modes. Unlockable items include “Gobblegums”, which grant players with temporary bonuses, and weapon kits that allow players to modify the appearance of the guns. The first map available “Shadows of Evil” features four brand new characters: Nero the Magician, Jessica the Femme Fatale, Vincent the Cop and Campbell the Boxer as the main cast, and takes place in a new setting called Morg City.

Multiplayer

Treyarch have implemented a new character system called “Specialists”, where players can pick from 9 different soldiers, each with either a special weapon or ability unique to them. Thruster packs to allow players to perform slow boosts into the air, as well as perform wall running and sliding, all the while giving players complete gun control.

Have they supplied us with something new? not really!
