No, the title was just a fake. But there is some Annihilation news: Activision has released a press conference stating the new zombies map, therefore confirming the existence of Annihilation and giving more information on it! Yay! Win-win! Plus, a double XP weekend on July 1. Win-win-win!
Activision, as I said before, released a press conference revealing the new Zombies map:
With Annihilation, Black Ops fans will get four exciting and unique multiplayer settings with Hangar 18, Drive-In, Silo and Hazard,” said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. “Players will also enjoy an all-new Zombies experience, Shangri-La, an exotic and mysterious map filled with deadly traps, dark secrets and innovative gameplay that will challenge even the most daring Zombie hunters.

That’s pretty, uh, useless. “An exotic and mysterious map filled with deadly traps, dark secrets and innovative gameplay that will challenge even the most daring Zombie hunters.” No locations, characters, new weapons, new perks? That’s what we’re all interested in, right? Who’d want to read a description of a zombie map, exotic and mysterious map with dark secrets? Well, it’s an Activision press release. Very typical.
With that lack of information which is a necessity to the community, Call of Duty: Black Ops HQ posted that Annihilation has been announced, with more map info!
|Hagar 18||Located in the classified military base of Area 51 in Nevada, it includes experimental weapon labs, the SR-71 test hangar, and a rather mysterious autopsy room.|
|Drive-In||A 1960s American drive-in theater, a classic arcade, and a old school snack shack. City warfare.|
|Silo||A HUGE secret Soviet missile site. Americans versus Russians?|
|Hazard||Positioned in a coastal golf course Cuban cliffs where stocked clubhouses and fairways meet sandtraps perfect for setting up ambushes.|
|Shangri-La||Get ready for the horde. This map is in a exotic jungle of a mysterious land. Never before seen undead creatures lurk within a treacherous labyrinth of underground caverns. Watch out for deadly traps and solve the dark secrets buried within the shifting walls of a long last land, for the future of the living human race!|
And after that press release, Treyarch has also released an Annihilation trailer!
There were many tweets regarding Annihilation recently, some you’re probably not interested in. That’s why I only included the ones you might be.
FYI: Bobby Kotick is an Activision Blizzard boss.
I just wanted to ‘revisit’ this tweet:
It says that this MW3 YouTube video has been watched by 13-17 year olds, but the BF3 vid was watched by 18-21, the least. But…
That was the image used as proof. Just look at it. Look at the user who uploaded the video. No wonder why. The user who uploaded MW3 gameplay wasn’t official! While the user who uploaded the BF3 gameplay, the official BF3 channel. Isn’t that the reason why? Maybe the user’s viewers are just kids. Modern Warfare 3 is NOT a children’s game. Case closed.
That’s it for today, not really much on MW3.
There’s going to be an in-depth breakdown of that video tomorrow! Just wait, plus the downloads.
