It’s official, it’s not yet that there is a Black Ops without Zombies. When it launches on November 13, 2020, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will feature the popular four-player cooperative Zombie mode, in addition to the single-player and multiplayer campaign.
Direct reference to Nacht der Untoten, which was the first Zombies mode map in Call of Duty: World at War, this all-new chapter called Die Maschine takes place in the early 1980s, though its roots stretch even further into the past. The action will begin in a bunker dating from World War II and will revolve around Requiem, an international organization supported by the CIA and led by Grigori Weaver, the character of the first Call of Duty: Black Ops. At the same time, a rival Soviet faction called the Omega Group arrives to study the paranormal phenomena of the bunker.
Among the lessons of this presentation, the Zombies mode of Cold War will have a unified progression with the other modes and will be linked in particular to the Battle Pass, such as multiplayer and Call of Duty: Warzone. This system implies, among other things, not to always start with a basic pistol. Additionally, in addition to the return of the trusty Sacred Punch machine that allows you to upgrade your weapon, all weapons are now at a rarity level. The rarer a weapon, the more powerful it is and the more accessories it can accommodate, the idea is that all weapons have a chance to ensure the wearer’s survival in the final rounds.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will feature Zombie mode
Players will also be able to deploy new terrain upgrades ranging from offensive buffs to dodge, healing, and resurrection skills. In addition, a new exfiltration function has appeared that allows you to abandon the helicopter part when the situation becomes critical, with a bonus on success. As with multiplayer, note that Zumbie mode will be compatible across all platforms and generations.
Finally, Activision confirms that some of the post-launch content in this way, including future maps, will be free, since the Call of Duty business model is now based on launching a Battle Pass with each new season, which players are free to buy or not according to their needs and desires.
