Fans of both the PlayStation and the Call of Duty franchise are in for a big treat this year. Coming exclusively to both the PS4 and PS5, Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will feature a unique 2-player cooperative mode in which you and friend will work together to fight back against the undead. Check out the full details below.
In a blog post written by James Mattone, Lead Writer for the Activision Editorial, it was revealed that you’d be utilizing the same loadouts that are customized in Warzone and Multiplayer to kill zombies and power up the “Dark Aether Orb.”
“In Zombies Onslaught, you and one other Operator will deploy to one of several locations derived from various Multiplayer maps with your custom loadouts. These are the very same loadouts you’ll carry into traditional Zombies and Multiplayer, complete with your preferred primary weapon, whether it be an LMG, heavy-hitting sniper rifle, or other fully kitted-out tool for zombie destruction.
Once you drop in, the onslaught begins; the Dark Aether Orb will confine your duo to a specific space on the map, where the undead will begin spawning in. Killing these zombies will power the Orb. Kill enough Zombies and the Orb will move. While you’re inside the Orb, you won’t take Dark Aether damage from outside the specific map zone the Orb protects, helping keep players alive as they fight increasingly difficult undead enemies, with each “surge” bringing more resilient, faster and deadlier zombies.
As the Orb gains power and you clear out more enemies, expect to stay on the move as the safe area shifts to different areas around the map, forcing you to change strategies on the fly while fending off the undying horde.”
It was also noted that in addition to this exclusive PlayStation experience, a traditional 4-player zombie mode would return on all platforms.
