Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season Two releases on February 25 – PlayStation.Blog


Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone season two will go live on PlayStation on February 25th, and with it comes a ton of new content. Let’s take a look at:

Outbreak: A New Zombies Experience

Linked to the storyline of Dark Aether, Outbreak challenges players with objective play on the biggest multiplayer maps in the Black Ops Cold War.

Hunt down elite enemies with a satellite tracker, escort a rover that detects dimensional portals, or hold off against the zombies in narrow regions of the dark ether – complete your objectives and get to Exfil. Will you escape via the helicopter or take your risk on the Dark Aether portal for additional rewards?

There are also new skills and upgrades. Activate the new Frenzied Guard Field upgrade to force all undead creatures to attack the user for 10 seconds. During this time only the armor is damaged. Turn heavy zombies into minced meat with the explosive Shatter Blast Ammo Mod and earn the new refined and flawless Aetherium Crystals to improve your skills at level IV and V.

Earn six free new weapons

Season two brings serious firepower with six new weapons:

  • FARA 83 (free at level 15) – This rapid-fire assault rifle is devastating in the hands of skilled operators who can control its reliable accuracy and slower handling.
  • LC10 (free at level 31) – A well-rounded fully automatic SMG that competes in the mid-range due to its solid accuracy and extended effective damage range.

Unlock four more weapons – the R1 Shadowhunter, the Machete, the 20mm ZRG Sniper Rifle, and the Military Triple Shovel E-Tool – by completing in-game challenges to get the free basic weapon or by using a bundle with the blueprint will buy from this family when it appears in the store.

New multiplayer maps and game modes

Black Ops Cold War

Apocalypse (6v6, start week)

Descend to a Laotian jungle cartel base in the heart of the Golden Triangle in the Apocalypse, a small to medium sized map built for aggressive combat in and around the temple fortress.

Golova (multi-team, in season)

What looks like a picturesque Russian village in the Urals is really a test field for expanding the number program designed by Nikita Dragovich. Fight in the sleepy city, from the massive church to the houses and industrial park.

Mansion (2v2, 3v3, in season)

This new Gunfight and Face Off card is located in Havana, Cuba, at the Hefe Villa (last seen in the campaign’s “End of the Line” mission), and features expansive courtyards around a central, enveloped space with an exposed balcony who can serve as a risky force position.

Miami Strike (6v6, In Season)

As the sun shines off the colorful murals in Miami’s South Beach neighborhood, Miami Strike focuses the action on a smaller daytime rendition of the original map. Whether it’s a white knuckle game from TDM or a tense hardpoint fight, the streets of Miami are always hot.

The second season offers other new game modes, such as the fan favorites Gun game. Go through a set of 20 weapons – starting with a pistol and ending with a knife – to win the match: put your enemies back one level by eliminating them with a melee attack or finishing move.

You can also collect and deposit dog tags stockor prepare for epic battles in the new squad-based multi-team Hard point.

New game modes, points of interest in Warzone

The new season brings a new pool of loot to Warzone, including the new season two weapons and operators. Plus, play new game modes and explore two new attractions in Verdansk.

In exfiltration, players must locate a portable radio in Verdansk and hold it for a set period of time in order to win the game. The player holding the radio is marked on the tac card along with a timer that tells how long it will be before he wins. Prepare for a frantic battle in Rebirth Island Resurgence Extreme, a time-limited mode that supports up to 90 players.

As for the new sights, operators are still collecting information about what they found deep below Verdansk’s surface, in addition to rogue radar signals from a strange cargo tanker that was reportedly lost at sea. Although further reports on these new areas have not yet been released, all operators have been directed to investigate them at their own risk.

The second season of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone will be live on PlayStation on February 25th. Experience all of this and more with a new Season Two Battle Pass, four new playable Operators – Naga, Maxis, Wolf and Rivas – new Prestige Levels, Death Machine Scorestreak, Escape Vehicles, a range of new Multiplayer and Zombies Challenges, and much more more.
