The contents of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone‘s latest mid-season refresh have been detailed, with new maps, new modes and more arriving on July 15.
The latest new arena for multiplayer mode is the paintball-themed Rush, another map making its return from Black Ops II. It’ll arrive with a new Paintball Moshpit playlist that swaps out the blood and bullets with paintball sounds & effects for that authentic painball feel. Another new mode is the long-awaited return of one of the Call of Duty series oldest modes, Capture the Flag. Two new weapons will also arrive with the OTs 9 SMG and the Mace in melee, and a new Operator for the NATO side in the form of Weaver.
Free-to-play mode Call of Duty: Warzone, meanwhile, will get a brand new Payload objective-based mode. Playing out similar to Overwatch, one team will be escorting vehicles across various checkpoints while the other team try to stop them. The attackers will also be able to buy and build obstacles on the map using their earned cash to stall the vehicles and rack themselves up some extra kills.
Elsewhere in Warzone you can also expect a new Blueprint Blitz event that will challenge players to earn Weapon Blueprints, including those from previous seasons, should they successfully find and extract them. The mysterious Red Doors that started appearing last season are teased to be getting a tweak, and there’s a new Sentry Gun Killstreak waiting behind one of them for a very lucky player. This update will also see gifting, introduced into Black Ops Cold War at the start of this season, into Warzone.
Of course, Zombies mode will see the previously announced Mauer Der Toten chapter, as well as the Mule Kick perk, the LT53 Kazimir Grenade and the CRBR-S Wonder Weapon. PlayStation owners also get to enjoy a new Onslaught map in their platform-exclusive mode. You can read about the Zombies additions over here.
You can check out a full rundown of everything arriving in the Season Four Reloaded update over on the official website. All of these additions will arrive in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone on July 15 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
To win is to sacrifice. 👊
