In the lead up to the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops II publisher Activision is setting Android Zombies free.  Or, to put it another way, Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies app is shambling over to the Android platform including a 30 day exclusive on Sony’s Xperia smart phones.


If you are armed with an Android based mobile device and simply cannot wait until the November release date of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, then perhaps the arrival of the zombie themed app may sate you for a while.  Here are the details from Activision:

Call of Duty®: Black Ops Zombies, the fan-favourite app based on the popular Zombies mode from Treyarch’s and Activision’s record-setting hit Call of Duty®: Black Ops, is now coming to Android.  Adapted by Ideaworks Game Studio and distributed by Glu Mobile, Inc. in partnership with Activision, Call of Duty®: Black Ops Zombies delivers heart-pounding maps: Kino Der Toten, Ascension, and Call of the Dead: Director’s Cut, as well as “Dead-Ops Arcade,” a 50-level zombie gauntlet that provides the ultimate undead challenge for fans of Call of Duty®’s signature Zombie action. Gamers can play solo, or join a team of four players via Wi-Fi as they mow down hordes of zombies using a variety of weapons and perks only available in the Call of Duty® zombie experience.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies on Android is available exclusively for 30 days on Sony’s Xperia smart phones as well as Sony’s Xperia Play Optimized devices including the Xperia Play, with its dedicated gaming keypad, and the critically acclaimed Xperia S and Xperia Ion.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Glu Mobile and Ideaworks to bring the Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies mobile experience to Android, and we couldn’t be more excited to launch first on Sony’s critically acclaimed line-up of Xperia devices,” says Greg Canessa, Vice President of Mobile Development, Activision Publishing, Inc.

"We're delighted to bring the blockbuster Call of Duty® franchise to Android smartphones and Xperia for the first time.  And what better way to make this introduction than with the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies," said Tim Harrison, Head of Content Marketing and Strategy at Sony Mobile. "There’s nothing else in this world or the underworld like Call of Duty.  We can’t wait to unleash Zombies to our fans."

Players can also opt to enhance their experience with the in-game CoD Point System, available in the single-player mode. With six tiers of in-app purchasing options to choose from, Zombies fans will be able to take the action to a new level by unlocking additional areas and securing better weapons in less time.
