With the release of the first teaser trailer less than a week ago, much talk has been happening about the anticipated zombie mode for Black Ops 2. To build more interest and anticipation of the release Treyarch has already released the second in a series of teaser trailers leading up the full reveal of Black Ops 2: Zombies on September 26. Until then details of the game will be kept under wraps.

Additionally, it was found that the PS3 version of Black Ops 2 will have a new feature. David Vonderhaar spoke about the ability to install textures to the HDD on the official Black Ops 2 forums.

This is one the fans having been asking us about demanding for a bit. Black Ops 2 has an option to “Install Textures to HDD.”

When we explained to PS3 folks that installing to the HDD wouldn’t neccessarily give us any significant performance gains, they explained back that the issue is they play so much it puts constant stress on the Blu-ray drive and wears them out.

Roger that.

It’s a non-trivial amount of HDD space to install all the textures. I don’t want to get into exactly numbers because anything can, and does change during development.

You don’t have to install to enjoy the game. We still pre-cache like we did on Black Ops.
