Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies, the mobile undead-centric spin-off from the console Black Ops title, has now hit Android. The bad news? If you happen to own any Android device but Sony's Xperia S or Xperia Ion, you'll have to wait another 30 days to get it on your device. Yes, even open platforms are getting hardware exclusivity deals now.
Like the iOS version, the Android version costs $6.99, and approximates the zombie-hunting action from the console game. It features a handful of maps, a gauntlet "Dead-Ops Arcade" mode, and solo and multiplayer complete with a perks system.
"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 Sony Mobile's Tim Harrison. "There's nothing else in this world or the underworld like Call of Duty. We can't wait to unleash Zombies to our fans."
That last line sounds vaguely threatening, but regardless you can grab the game now on Google Play.
