Nazi zombies on the Moon, and screen shots of said Nazi zombies on the Moon.  Nothing else really needs to be said, right?  You're either excited or not, and I doubt anything will change your mind.  Alas, my robot-overlords may frown on such an obvious lack of effort, so here goes....

Call of Duty: Black Ops is finally getting its Moon-zombie expansion pack, called Call of Duty: Black Ops: Rezurrection (spelled with a "z," har har).  Once you download the zombie goodness, you'll receive a free Zombies soundtrack with three tracks never before available for purchase, a free Moon theme and the Classic Zombie pack that contains re-mastered maps.  Fans of Avenged Sevenfold will be happy to hear that they've been tapped once again to provide their classic track Nightmare in the Moon level of the Rezzurrection map pack.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ONE GIANT LEAP FOR ZOMBIE-KIND ON THE MOON: ACTIVISION AND TREYARCH LAUNCH CALL OF DUTY®: BLACK OPS REZURRECTION
TO ERADICATE THE INFESTATION

The Undead Onslaught Culminates With the All-New Level "Moon," Four Remastered Classic Zombies Maps, Enhanced Zombies Soundtrack and New Zombies Theme


Santa Monica, CA - August 23, 2011 - Call of Duty® gamers leave earth's atmosphere today with the release of Rezurrection, the fourth downloadable content pack on Xbox 360® for the best-selling first-person-shooter title, Call of Duty®: Black Ops. Rezurrection's stellar payload features the never-before-seen Zombie frag-fest Moon, as well as four re-mastered levels from Zombies past, an enhanced Zombies soundtrack and new Moon theme.

Moon features outrageous new weapons, futuristic gear and hordes of low-gravity undead beasts, delivering Black Ops' most expansive, visceral, and otherworldly Zombies experience yet. Meanwhile, bolstered with the firepower and visual splendor of Black Ops, players can relive the nightmare of "Nacht der Üntoten," escape the Zombie madness in the asylum of "Verrückt," battle back the undead Imperial Army of "Shi No Numa," and pull the plug on "Der Riese," the zombie factory that started it all.

"Our Zombies fans are so incredibly engaged with us in the ongoing development of the franchise, and we're excited to deliver them our first all-Zombies content package," said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. "Rezurrection is Zombies nirvana, with four of our best Zombies experiences, topped off with the awesome, all-new level Moon."

Once Rezurrection is downloaded, Black Ops will make available a free Zombies soundtrack with three tracks never before available for purchase, and a free Moon theme. For our fans who purchased the Black Ops Hardened or Prestige Editions and have already downloaded the Classic Zombie pack with re-mastered maps, the pack can be redownloaded to get Rezurrection with Moon; and Black Ops will make available the soundtrack and theme for free.

Additionally, the team at Treyarch has once again partnered with avid Call of Duty fans and rock superstars, Avenged Sevenfold, to feature their classic track, Nightmare, in the "Moon" level of the Rezurrection map pack.

To mark the release of Rezurrection and help kick off the first ever Call of Duty fan celebration, Call of Duty XP, this September 2-3, the team will host Double XP over the Labor Day holiday weekend from Friday, September 2 through Monday, September 5th.
