News broke yesterday that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare would in fact have a Zombies mode. That mode, according to the GameStop release, would be available to folks who purchased the $49.99 Season Pass.
As we noted in our story yesterday, GameStop’s wording didn’t really clarify whether or not folks would have to buy the Season Pass in order to get the Zombies mode. It implied as much with its verbiage, but it didn’t confirm it.
This just in, Zombies are back as part of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare season pass! Stop by any GameStop to pick up one of the most anticipated games to launch this year, along with 4-multiplayer map packs, Atlas Gorge, and yes – ZOMBIES. All this is available for purchase today at GameStop as part of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare season pass for only $49.99.
We stated that “we’re not sure about whether or not you’ll be able to get the Zombies mode through any means other than by buying the $49.99 season pass” in the story. Now, we have clarification.
Tech News World received word directly from Activision representative Kyle Walker regarding the nature of Zombies mode. It will in fact be DLC, but you won’t need a Season Pass to access it.
“The Season Pass is just another offer to get all DLC at a discounted rate. Season Pass is not the only way to get Zombies…
…Zombies in AW is an Easter Egg for the fan…It was just a fun surprise the Sledgehammer team created for fans once they wrapped the main game. It’s their own new take and new style on Zombies.”
Well, an Easter Egg isn’t normally hidden behind a DLC price tag, but we get your point Mr. Walker.
Put away the pitchforks, you’ll be able to buy Zombies mode when it releases without buying the 50 smacker Season Pass. The release date and the price have not been revealed.
