The Black Ops Cold War Season 1 roadmap was revealed on Friday.
Activision and Treyarch have teased the upcoming Season 1 content drop in Black Ops Cold War as being the largest content drop in the history of Call of Duty, and that is certainly an understatement.
The Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Roadmap
New Warzone Content
Starting out with have the arrival of the new Rebirth Island map for Call of Duty: Warzone. This map, named after a famous location from the Call of Duty: Black Ops campaign, is quite a bit smaller than the regular Verdansk map. Some CoD fans have even noted that it bears a slight resemblance to the Alcatraz map from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout and they wouldn't be wrong in that assessment. Alongside that, we have a revamped Gulag experience, which means players will have a new 1v1 terrain to master in order to revive themselves in the game. Warzone will also be receiving many of the weapons from Black Ops: Cold War meaning players will even more customization options to experiment within their loadouts.
To kick things off for Season 1, Treyarch will be adding three new weapons to the Cold War arsenal. First we have the grand return of the Mac-10 submachine gun, which was last featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.
We will also have the introduction of the Groza assault rifle and the Streetsweeper shotgun, which bears a slight resemblance to the Striker from previous Call of Duty games.
New Multiplayer Maps
Treyarch is also adding eight new multiplayer maps to Cold War, including the return of the iconic fan-favourite map Raid from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Players will also receive a new winter edition of Nuketown 84, the heavily advertised "The Pines" map and a new resort themed Fireteam map.
The popular Gunfight mode from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will also be making its return in Black Ops Cold War with four new maps to get players started. Players will go from fighting in a TV studio, to the Berlin underground system, and even inside the KGB headquarters itself.
Alongside the Gunfight mode, players will also be treated to two new game modes in Cold War. Prop Hunt will be making its' return to the fold, making it the first party game mode to be added to Cold War so far this season. We will also be getting a new game mode titled Dropback in the Season 1 update. As for what that is, we will have to wait until Dec. 16 to find out more about it.
Zombies will also be receiving two new modes, Cranked and Jingle Hells. While we can assume that Jingle Hells will simply be a Christmas themed game mode, Cranked should provide zombies players with a slightly more intense way to play the fan-favorite mode.
To round off our roadmap, we will also be given three new Operators to choose from in Black Ops Cold War.
First, we have the man on the cover of the Season 1 drop, a Soviet soldier known simply as "Stitch" who will be joining the Warsaw Pact section. According to the reveal trailer, this mysterious man seems to share a connection with some of the core Black Ops characters.
We also are getting two new NATO operators that players will be able to unlock through the battle pass, named Bulldozer and Zeyna.
And that is everything that is currently slated to for release with the Black Ops Cold War Season 1 content drop. But who knows, maybe we will see even more content added midway through the season.
