Ascension Strategy Guide

In Der Riese, the cre¬≠ation of the Zom¬≠bies and Hell¬≠hounds is explained. Dr. Maxis was test¬≠ing Zom¬≠bies for the gov¬≠ern¬≠ment project chris¬≠tened ‚ÄúDer Riese‚ÄĚ or ‚ÄúThe Giant‚ÄĚ. He was test¬≠ing tele¬≠porters by send¬≠ing peo¬≠ple and/or dogs through them. They reap¬≠peared at the main¬≠frame, but had been turned into Zom¬≠bies. He tried to con¬≠trol the Zom¬≠bies, but the prob¬≠lem was that they would always go berserk and try to kill him, result¬≠ing in their death. All of these exper¬≠i¬≠ments were done with his assis¬≠tant, Dr. Edward Richtofen. When he used his daugh¬≠ter Samantha‚Äôs dog, Fluffy, as a tele¬≠porter test sub¬≠ject, he acci¬≠den¬≠tally cre¬≠ated the first hell¬≠hound. The dog was tele¬≠ported, but like the rest of the sub¬≠jects, she reap¬≠peared at the main¬≠frame zomb¬≠i¬≠fied. When Saman¬≠tha came run¬≠ning in and started ques¬≠tion¬≠ing her dad about her dog, Richtofen left the room. Richtofen then betrayed him by lock¬≠ing him and his daugh¬≠ter in the room with the hell¬≠hound, which was orig¬≠i¬≠nally believed to have killed them. Richtofen let loose the zom¬≠bies on the fac¬≠tory, as on another radio mes¬≠sage the player can hear screams and the sounds of Zom¬≠bies moan¬≠ing and attack¬≠ing. Another radio mes¬≠sage explains how hell¬≠hounds increased in quan¬≠tity; in it, Maxis talks to his daugh¬≠ter about Fluffy‚Äôs preg¬≠nancy. In Call of Duty: Black Ops it is revealed that he and the other three playable char¬≠ac¬≠ters sur¬≠vived the events at Der Riese and time-traveled to a Nazi the¬≠ater, where they con¬≠tinue to fight Zombies.
