In a brief exchange on Twitter, the CS:GO dev team confirmed that Zombie Mod might just be shambling its way to CS:GO as an official game mode, through post-release updates.
Q: Can you include Zombie as a standard game mode? [...]
A: We have talked with some of the guys supporting this. Will have them ready to go as soon as we can but it will be post launch.
It is rather vague, but it definitely sounds as if Zombie Mod might just be implemented as an official CS:GO game mode after the game’s release (so we might be looking at fall to winter). Which is… pretty damn exciting! I just hope Valve got in touch with the right people – lord knows there’s like a thousand different zombie mods out there in the wild. All that’s left to add at this point is JailBreak or something.
Now, my friends… let us have a moment of silence… in memory of VIP Assassination mode and Escape mode. And the Riot Shield. And Dynamic Weapon Pricing. RIP.
