Activision has released a Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War trailer showing off one of the game’s new multiplayer modes, Fireteam: Dirty Bomb.
The 40-player mode sees 10 teams of four players competing to locate and deposit uranium into bombs before detonating them.
“Each detonation causes radiation to leak out to large areas of the map, scoring points for the team that ignited the bomb and transforming huge portions of the map into radioactive hazards for everyone,” according to Treyarch.
“The longer a player hangs onto uranium, the longer radiation sickness sets in. This affects Perk benefits, movement, health regeneration, and ultimately, your Operator’s life.
“When that life runs out, you’ll experience the Fireteam Spawn system unique to Fireteam modes in Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer. You’ll have to make a tactical choice in redeploying into the map by spawning onto a teammate not currently in combat, by parachuting right back into the action, or by spawning directly into the passenger seat of a teammate’s vehicle for instant gratification.”
Fireteam: Dirty Bomb will be playable across two large-scale maps this weekend as part of the Black Ops Cold War beta, which will run from October 15-16 (all PS4 players and Xbox One/PC pre-order customers), and from October 17-19 (all players).
Treyarch has also outlined the following improvements made to the beta since the beginning of last weekend’s PS4 exclusive access period:
