A fair warning to those who don't like their games spoiled beforehand, this article contains spoilers regarding the new zombie mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops.

Now that that's out of the way, the rest of us can take joy in the fact that Black Ops upcoming zombie mode may just be the coolest thing this side of a 12-gauge shotgun.
We previously reported that developers Treyarch had added a new Zombie mode to its upcoming first person shooter. The studio's previous game, COD: World at War was the first of its kind to the see the inclusion of the shuffling corpses, introducing a Nazi zombie mode followed by a Japanese zombie mode, both obviously set in World War 2.
Black Ops on the other hand will take place at varying times and locations, with the Cold War being the major overarching conflict of the game. For this reason Treyarch had to get creative with its next Zombie mode if they wanted it to fit in, and better yet, be even more awesome than World at War's.
It does seem like they've struck gold however, a leaked video of the Black Ops zombie mode in action surfaced online over the weekend, showing exactly what players will be up against in their next undead slaughterfest.
This time around players won't be fighting as some nameless grunt on the (zombie infested) battlefields of World War 2. Instead they will step into the shoes of none other than former presidents of the United States, John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon, as well as former secretary of defence Robert McNamara and Cuban leader Fidel Castro.
Yes you heard it right, and no this is not a joke, in the new zombie mode players will fight as dead statesmen battling hordes of the undead through the halls of none other than the Pentagon.
If we weren't on the verge of suffering a nervous breakdown over Black Ops release previously, we definitely are now. The game will be releasing on the 9th of November for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Nintendo Wii, and it can’t come a day too soon.
Politicians have never looked this good.
