'Call of Duty: Black Ops 2' Zombies mode is a road show of death

We caught our first, albeit brief, glimpse of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's take on zombies mode last week in a video that seemed to hint that survivors would be fighting off the undead masses aboard a bus.

This newest, slightly longer video seemingly confirms that, showing that players will be taking the zombie mode on the road, traveling from one outbreak to the next aboard a boarded up bus.

The video shows player-controlled characters hopping off a bus to clear an area, moving around and inside a Diner before hopping back on a bus to travel to a new, zombie-infested area.

A couple of screen shots popped up yesterday completely unattached to any more details, but you can check those out here.

The developer has said that the zombie mode will use the Black Ops 2's multiplayer engine and support up to 8 players at a time.

Zombies have become one of the trademarks of Treyarch's Call of Duty games. Call of Duty: World at War was the first game to include a zombie survival mode. Call of Duty: Black Ops amped that mode up quite a bit, adding back stories and a number of major downloadable updates.

For more details on the new modes coming with Zombies, including an 8-player versus mode, check out our interview with Treyarch.
