PostSubject: Zombies....   Thu May 05, 2011 5:47 am

Zombies just so happens to be the best part of CoD. Infinity Ward were fools for taking it out of Modern Warfare, but Trearch are my heroes for bringing it back.
At first glimpse, Zombies may just seem like another horde type game. While that is what it is, there is a very dark story underlying it, which can be uncovered by exploring the map and uncovering all of the Easter eggs.
There is also an awesome music track hiden in every map, bar Nacht der Untotem (the 1st map).

This game mode shows what the developers of Call of Duty can do if they put their minds to it, again, bar Nacht der Untotem (as that was a last minute decision).

The story begins on the second map, Verruckt, or Asylum, with an American soldier, called Peter, being sent to investigate a disturbance in a German mental asylum. He uncovers the mysterious zombies that have appeared in huge numbers. He has to fend them off (gameplay of the map). During his fight, he is bitten on the arm. He then saws his arm off in fear of infection. He is found days later by a German rescue team, still fighting these zombies and he is extracted from the asylum.

We then move on to Shi No Numa, where four people, Tank Dempsy, Nikolai Belinski, Takeo Masaki and Edward Richtofen, are stranded in a Japanese swamp wit more zombies on pursuit. Tank had actually been sent to recover peter, who hung himself and can be seen in the first room of the map, and Richtofen was stationed there also, as Peter was working with him and Dr. Max; the other two are from the Russian Red Army and Japanese military respectively. In the map, a giant meteor can be seen just outside the fence. This is said to be the source of element 115, an element that Dr. Max and Richtofen were working with to create the wonder weapon, the Wunderwaffe.

The four then (somehow) reach Der Rise (The Giant) and zombies are still trying to eat their faces. In Der Riese, the creation of the Zombies and Hellhounds is explained. Dr. Maxis was testing Zombies for the government project christened "Der Riese" or "The Giant". He was testing teleporters by sending people and/or dogs through them. They reappeared at the mainframe, but had been turned into Zombies. He tried to control the Zombies, but the problem was that they would always go berserk and try to kill him, resulting in their death. All of these experiments were done with his assistant, Dr. Edward Richtofen. When he used his daughter Samantha's dog, Fluffy, as a teleporter test subject, he accidentally created the first hellhound. The dog was teleported, but like the rest of the subjects, she reappeared at the mainframe zombified. When Samantha came running in and started questioning her dad about her dog, Richtofen left the room. Richtofen then betrayed him by locking him and his daughter in the room with the hellhound, which was originally believed to have killed them. Richtofen let loose the zombies on the factory, as on another radio message the player can hear screams and the sounds of Zombies moaning and attacking. Another radio message explains how hellhounds increased in quantity; in it, Maxis talks to his daughter about Fluffy's pregnancy. In Call of Duty: Black Ops it is revealed that he and the other three playable characters survived the events at Der Riese and time-traveled to a Nazi theater, where they continue to fight Zombies.

In the introduction to Kino der Toten, Richtofen reveals that he knows much more about the energy created by 115, and that he was excited to learn that it was also capable of time travel. He seems unconcerned that he and his partners have been teleported to Nazi Germany in an unknown year. The ray gun was created by Maxis while the Wunderwaffe and the Monkey Bomb were created by Richtofen. As the experiments with 115 continued, Maxis noted that Richtofen had started acting increasingly insane and that he feared for his and Samantha's lives and regretted inviting him to join the group. Maxis also wrote that he and Sophia were attracted to each other. One of the other documents also reveals that Tank, Nikolai, and Takeo had their memories wiped by 115 and were being observed by Richtofen. It is also pretty apparent from the loading screen for Nacht der Untoten in Black Ops that someone (identity unknown) tried to use Soviet memory modification technology to try and control the zombies.

Sometime prior to Ascension, Yuri Kravcheski was transferred to work on sending monkeys into space, much to his dismay. His transfer was caused by his superior, Gersch, who he holds a grudge against. As the radio messages progress, Yuri notices the teddy bear and the Matryoshka dolls and wonders how a child could be let into the station. It is assumed Samantha Maxis brought these items and that she then drives Yuri insane. Yuri, in his state of insanity, finishes the Gersch Device and has Gersch activate it, letting in the zombies and seemingly killing Gersch. Yuri soon realizes his mistake and is heard screaming at the end of the last recording.

After the events of Kino der Toten, the main characters somehow reach the abandoned Soviet launch pad in Ascension. When the game starts, the four are landing in the starting room on the lunar lander as the color turns to black and white (which the characters acknowledge). The characters then hear Gersch, who tells them that the mechanism must be repaired. He is referring to the Kassimir Mechanism, which must be repaired by completing different tasks. After all of the tasks are completed and the mechanism is repaired, Gersch is free and gives the players 90-second death machines.

While the events of Ascension are occurring in Russia, the events of "Five" are also unfolding in the Pentagon. While John F. Kennedy, Robert McNamara, Fidel Castro, and Richard Nixon are negotiating, zombies break into the Pentagon with only the four of them left to fight them. While fighting, they call the characters in Ascension using three red telephones spread across the Pentagon. A piece of Intel reveals that all Wunderwaffe materials were to be moved to American-controlled installations. As a mainframe is visible behind one of the windows in "Five", it is apparent that is was moved there as per this order. It is possible that the mainframe was used to teleport zombies or was used by the American scientists to create their own teleporters.

Sometime in the present, George A. Romero stumbled upon Group 935's research while making a WWII film. He and the cast took a ship out to an abandoned lab in Siberia. After he and the ship's crew were zombified, only the cast, made up of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robert Englund, Danny Trejo, and Michael Rooker, remained. This set the stage for Call of the Dead.

This is the story so far. Sorry for the VERY long post, but I just thought that sharing woud be a nice thing to do.
