What is a Black Ops game without Zombies? Everybody knows this and Treyarch is giving the fans exactly what they want as they give us a first look at Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies.
Check out the reveal trailer below:
As detailed in the Activision Blog, the new map is called “Die Maschine” and will take place in the early 80’s, with 2 rival groups called Requiem and Omega Group battling it out.
As part of Requiem, a CIA-backed international response team led by Grigori Weaver from the original Black Ops story, operatives explore a World War II bunker that hasn’t only been ravaged by time…
While fighting to suppress the unnatural phenomena at this graffiti-skinned, boarded-up bunker, Requiem team members investigate what lies beneath this structure that’s been left to crumble after decades of disservice. Should they succeed, Requiem may uncover a cache of decades-old secrets that upend the global order.
At the same time, a Soviet-led division and rival to Requiem, the Omega Group, enters the fray. The Omega Group also has a keen interest in studying and harnessing the unexplained events and anomalies manifesting around the globe.
Between Requiem and Omega Group, there are plenty of characters who may aid or hinder your journey, while others have separate, unknown agendas that will be up to players to discover. Among this cast, there is one particular contact – Sam – who seems eager to share intel discovered from deep within the KGB.
Zombies will enjoy cross gen and cross platform play, integrating a Battle Pass progression similar to Warzone. Other improvements to the mode will include the addition of weapon rarity, field upgrades which are proactive abilities like offensive buffs or healing aid, equipment crafting, perks, and an exfil option that will allow you to escape if you’re feeling overwhelmed, but expect a wave to stop you from getting away.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is scheduled for a November 13, 2020 release for the PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series, and PC. If you’re itching for early access open beta, it happens on October 8-9!
