Call Of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Creeps Onto Android
Finally, we can pick up the iOS favorite on Google Play, but there's an Xperia catch.
Slowly but surely, some of the most beloved iPhone and iPad hits have been making their way to Android. It took a while, but finally, Activision chose to bring Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies to Google Play. The port comes by way of Ideaworks Game Studio, with Glu Mobile as distributor. That said, Android users can expect all the iOS content, including maps Kino Der Toten, Ascension and Call of the Dead: Director's Cut, as well as Dead-Ops Arcade.
On the downside, the game isn't available for everyone, at least not yet. There's a 30 day exclusivity deal in place with Sony's Xperia Play devices. Most notably, the 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."
Well, look at it this way. You waited months for a game like this to appear on Android. What's another 30 days, right? Right?
