Call of Duty: Black Ops Wii to Get Online Co-Op and Zombie Modes

Activision interview opens up
Call of Duty: Black Ops on Wii has been shrouded in secrecy for months, with next-to nothing concrete revealed, but now the game's senior producer Anna Donlan has spilled the beans on what gamers can expect on November 9th.
The biggest news is arguably that the game will feature online co-operative play, including the console's debut of the amazingly popular zombies mode. The game will also support the Classic Controller Pro for players who prefer a dual analogue set-up, and Headbanger's PDP headset is supported too.
We've reprinted the juicy bits below, but the full Call of Duty: Black Ops Wii interview still has a few interesting nuggets for you to sift out.
Well, let’s start with the basics. We’re giving the fans the full single-player storyline, with huge maps and an amazing story that I think will really blow them away. We’re also back with 5v5 multiplayer, all maps and all game modes, including the newly introduced Wager Matches and Contracts.
There’s a bunch of other new features that we developed this year as well. We’ve created a new "Allies" system that allows you to invite recent players to be your allies for text messaging, game invites and more without a need for code exchanges. We have more player customization in Create a Class than ever before and we have enhanced party privacy options for players who want to set up their private matches with a little more control over who they allow in.
Don't forget, if you're a UK resident you can take part in our exclusive Call of Duty: Black Ops Wii competition for one more week.
