Activision and Treyarch have officially revealed the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode.
Black Ops Cold War has a ‘new Zombies experience’ that is building a new ‘chapter’ of the universe. The team has released a 8 minute trailer highlighting what’s new in the new Zombies experience.
The next generation of Zombies is here. New story, New characters, New ways to play. Get your first look at #BlackOpsColdWar Zombies.
Black Ops Cold War Zombies is a brand new story that is set within the Zombies world. It’s called DIE MASCHINE.
“At the end of Black Ops 4, our heroes sacrificed themselves to collapse the multiverse. They hoped their actions would create a new world… one free from the forces of darkness that had plagued their existence. They were half right.”
With more than a nod to “Nacht der Untoten” – the map that started it all – “Die Maschine” takes place in the early ‘80s, but its roots reach back even further into the past.
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.
Treyarch has outlined new ways that fans can play and experience Black Ops Cold War Zombies, including return of fan favorite perks, Pack-A-Punch, and more.
Black Ops Cold War Zombies represents the first Zombies experience since Black Ops 4, with Infinity Ward opting to not have Zombies in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Zombies fans have been waiting to see what Treyarch has been working on since the game’s announcement.
Black Ops Cold War will launch on November 13 with an all new campaign developed by Raven Software, along with Multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone connected.
More information on all the modes to come as we get closer to launch date.
Treyarch has announced during the Black Ops Cold War Zombies First Look Video that progression and loadouts will be shared across the entire game.
During the video, Treyarch says that they have worked hard to unify the entire game and make it feel connected.
This means that the Gunsmith-crafted loadouts you make will be shared across Multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
“You’ll be unlocking weapons, scorestreaks, and equipment that is useable across the entirety of the game.”
Players in Zombies no longer are forced to start with just a pistol. You can bring your own weapon and loadout to the match to kick off the games.
In addition, in the video, Treyarch says that progression and level rank will also be shared across modes.
“This year, we’ve unified progression and loadouts across all of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. That means, wherever you play across Multiplayer or Zombies, you’re rank and weapon levels stay connected.”
This is a similar take that Infinity Ward took with Modern Warfare. Infinity Ward allowed for share progression across all modes of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone.
Details on what the progression system will look like has not been announced as of now.
Treyarch has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies will also feature some of the new updates to Call of Duty post launch systems.
Black Ops Cold War provides a connected experience for fans regardless of platform. With that, Zombies mode will support cross play. This allows everyone – on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC to all play together.
Cross-Play and Cross-Gen: Just like Multiplayer, squads in Zombies can be formed across platforms and generations, marking the first time in franchise history this co-op mode is available via cross-play.
In addition, Black Ops Cold War Zombies also features support for the Battle Pass system. Zombies playtime will contribute to the overall Battle Pass progression.
Battle Pass Progression and Loadouts: Players will now advance through the Battle Pass with time played in Zombies, similar to Multiplayer and Call of Duty: Warzone™. Requiem team members can also start the match with their Gunsmith-crafted weapon of choice via loadout support.
On Twitter, Treyarch also says Black Ops Cold War Zombies will have “free post launch content.”
The title represents the first Call of Duty game to launch for the next-generation consoles. The newest entry is developed by Treyarch and Raven Software.
