Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies Mode Revealed

It’s only a matter of time until the zombies will catch you, and today we get a glimpse of what that will look like in the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies Mode. That’s right, zombies are back!

In the two minute trailer below, to the sound of ‘Tainted Love’, we’re shown plenty of zombies, lots of bullets, and some unique environments that are designed to be a part of the ‘cold war’ setting.

Call of Duty games have become synonymous with zombies modes and we almost expect them to be included each year.

How will these zombies be different? 

As part of Requiem, a CIA-backed international response team led by Grigori Weaver, operatives explore a World War II bunker that hasn’t only been ravaged by time… A Soviet-led division and rival to Requiem, the Omega Group, also has a keen interest in studying and harnessing the power that lies within.

What will Cross-play look like?

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. Players will also advance the Battle Pass with time played in Zombies.

Will there be weapons and perks?

Utilise Cold War-era weapons and a fan-favourite Zombies arsenal to battle the horde. All weapons have a rarity associated with them and the higher the rarity, the greater the damage.

Tell us more about the perks!

Classic Perks like Juggernog and Speed Cola return, and players can deploy Field Upgrades and craft items that add another layer to squad-based tactics.

And what if my squad needs more support?

Deploy Grenade Launchers, Sentry Turrets, Explosive Bows, and even Chopper Gunners to deliver a massive power spike when your squad needs it most.
