ACTIVISION AND TREYARCH DECLARE WAR ON ZOMBIES, AS THEY LAUNCH CALL OF DUTY®: BLACK OPS REZURRECTION ON PLAYSTATION®3 SY

London, UK – 22nd September, 2011 – Call of Duty®gamers lock and load in low gravity today with the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Rezurrection, the fourth downloadable content pack for the best-selling first-person-shooter, Call of Duty®: Black Ops.  Rezurrection’s top-secret cargo features the massive Zombies frag-fest Moon, as well as four re-mastered levels from Zombies past, an enhanced soundtrack and new Moon theme.

Moon features all-new weapons, futuristic gear and hordes of low-gravity loving undead, delivering Black Ops’ deepest and most intense Zombies experience yet. Meanwhile, strengthened with the firepower and visual splendor of Black Ops, players can relive the nightmare of “Nacht der Üntoten,” escape the zombie madness in the asylum of “Verrückt,” battle back the undead Imperial Army of “Shi No Numa,” and pull the plug on “Der Riese,” the zombie factory that started it all.

“The enthusiasm of our incredibly loyal Zombies community is infectious,” said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. “With Rezurrection, we are delivering to our fans the most comprehensive Zombies content package so far, with four critically acclaimed Zombies experiences, plus our latest creation Moon, the biggest and most elaborate Zombies adventure yet.”

For our fans who purchased the Black Ops Hardened or Prestige Editions for the PlayStation 3 system, and have already downloaded the Classic Zombies Pack with re-mastered maps, Rezurrection can be downloaded via the in-game store or through the PlayStation®Store for free.  This includes Moon, the Zombies Soundtrack and the Moon Theme.

Treyarch is also delighted to announce that they have once again partnered with hardcore Call of Duty fans and rock superstars, Avenged Sevenfold, featuring their classic track, Nightmare, in Rezurrection’s Moon level.

To mark the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Rezurrection on the PlayStation 3 system and Windows PC , the team will host Double XP from Friday, 23rd September through Monday, 26th September.
