The first major update of Call Of Duty: Cold War Black Ops since the start of season 1 is almost upon us.
New content, comprising both maps and modes, is directed to Cold War tomorrow, January 14.
Mid-season update should have an impact Warzone thus, although at the time of this writing, we are only familiar with the new maps and modes for Cold War, although new store bundles are available to players of both games.
Here’s what to expect from the new mid-season update when it goes live tomorrow. An exact time has not been announced. None have a file size.
Expect two major multiplayer updates in tomorrow’s update:
New Fireteam Map: Sanitorium
Fireteam is one of Black Ops Cold War larger modes, as in many players on large maps. Unlike Combined Arms, however, it’s not two great teams that go head to head. Several teams compete against each other instead. It is said that the different Fireteam maps will eventually combine to form the new Warzone map, which is said to be released this March.
The new Sanitorium card is described as follows:
“Deep in the Ural Plains is an experimental Soviet health retreat – the focus of a clandestine investigation by NATO forces in September 1984. Low, wooded hills provide shelter for fire squads to recognize the main main circular “hotel”: a concrete and brutalist architectural monster flanked by lakeside structures and a large wooden dock. With links to secret tests within the U-23 State Sanatorium, notes found within the grounds of this vast complex indicate a conditioning test known as Project Golova.
New mode: Drop Kick 6v6
This new 6v6 mode pits two teams against each other in an attempt to control a nuclear briefcase. One player from one of the teams can hold the briefcase at a time. This player receives a pistol and nothing more – other than his teammates – to protect them. You earn both launch codes and points for controlling the briefcase.
When you die, you won’t respawn until your team’s wearer is killed and drops the case. First team to 200 wins – and the nuclear weapon goes off.
New mode: angled
Like MP’s classic Cranked mode, the Zombies version involves triggering a countdown after each kill. Don’t kill another zombie in time and you will explode.
There is also another PlayStation exclusive. Raid has been added to the Onslaught playlist with new information on Dark Aether.
I will update this article if and when we learn more about the new additions to Warzone. For now, that’s all that’s happening to the Cold War Black Ops tomorrow. There will also be new Operator and Blueprint bundles in the Item Shop.
