Last week, gamers across the nation lined up at Wal-Mart and GameStop stores as Microsoft released the latest in their Halo series, Halo 4. Tonight, one of the most anticipated games in years will cause a similar and possibly larger crowds when Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will hits store shelves at midnight.

Avenged Sevenfold created their song 'Not Ready To Die' to be used on an expansion pack for the first Call of Duty: Black Ops. This time around, they are actually in the game playing another new track created specifically for the game called 'Carry On'.

Not only are they lending to the soundtrack with a new original song, but they are also apart of the game itself. After you complete the solo campaign, the game credits will roll. If you sit through all of the credits you will be rewarded with a scene featuring Raul Menendez and Sergeant Frank Woods from Black Ops 2 and vocalist M. Shadows and guitarist Synyster Gates from Avenged Sevenfold followed by a performance of the new song that features even more of the video game series' characters, including a couple zombies. With all the features of game characters, it was kind of odd that they wouldn't feature the band's newest member, Arin Ilejay on drums, but instead have Woods sit in.
