Here’s your first look at Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War’s season 2, including the much-anticipated, fan-favourite zombies mode.
Activision unveiled the second season of Black Ops Cold War tonight in an explosive new trailer, showing that Call of Duty fans have a lot to look forward to. Players will be able to shoot their way through new maps, modes, operators and a new zombies-based mode when the newest season kicks off on February 25, 2021.
Cold War’s second season comes free to all players with the standard inclusion of four new maps, prestige levels, scorestreaks and multiplayer modes – and for those looking to spend a little cash, a brand new battle pass will include six new weapons and four new operators.
The most surprising addition, however, is the new zombies experience, Outbreak. Teased as a large-scale zombies experience, in Outbreak squads must survive a series of challenges across the new map, Ural Mountains. Introducing vehicles to zombies for the first time, as well as giant, mech-suited zombies armed with flamethrowers, Outbreak is set to be the next evolution of the Call of Duty zombies experience.
“A dark wave approaches Verdansk” is about all we know about what season two has in store for Warzone. Accompanying this vague statement, the trailer revealed a ship sailing towards Verdansk. While many hoped for a new map, this teaser seems to suggest something will be arriving in Verdansk when season two begins.
Players will be able to get their hands on this mountain of new content – and discover exactly what is in store for Verdansk – on February 25 when Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s second season commences.
