The new Black Ops Cold War update is finally here – this is what players can expect in the February 4 patch.
It’s time for Black Ops Cold War’s next major update, and the February 4 patch looks to be a big one. Here’s everything Cold War players can enjoy in Update 1.11:
New Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer Update
For those who enjoy the Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer, you’ll have a few exciting new features to try out.
New 6v6 Map: Express
The next new map to come to Black Ops Cold War is a long-time fan-favorite. Despite being an iconic Black Ops 2 map, this is the first time we’ve seen a re-release of Express.
Express is set in an American high-speed rail system station, boasting both close-quarters action and great lines of sight. There is also a fast-moving hazard in the form of a train which zips around the map.
If you’re looking to enjoy the new map in the February 4 Cold War update, look no further than the Express 24/7 playlist. And this leak suggests that Express is just the start of the 8 remastered maps coming to Cold War.
New Mode: 40 Player Endurance
If you’re a fan of Fireteam: Dirty Bomb, you’ll be happy to hear that the game type is getting a new addition. In 40 Player Endurance mode, players must still collect uranium to arm Dirty Bombs.
However, when one bomb detonates, another spawns around the map. With a score of 1000 needed to win, this game mode is a true test of endurance.
What’s more, it’s probably the best way to level up guns in Black Ops Cold War.
New Prop Hunt Maps
Since its addition in December, Prop Hunt has been a strong favorite for many fans. Now, Treyarch is confirming that Prop Hunt is getting some new maps to enjoy.
This is sure to add a bit of variety to the light-hearted hide-and-seek mode, and it’s certainly going to keep the gameplay fresh. Now, there are a lot more top-tier hiding places to discover, and more props to hide as!
New Store Bundle
It seems as though Black Ops Cold War’s Update 1.11 is also adding a new bundle to the in-game store. The Zombie Dozer Bundle adds a new blood-red skin for Bulldozer named “Belligerent.”
The Legendary “Blood Dozer” SMG and Epic “Blood Spray” Assault Rifle will also come included as Blueprints.
New Black Ops Cold War Zombies Content Update
This is Cold War Zombies’ biggest content patch yet, and there’s more to look forward to than ever before.
New Map: Firebase Z
Firebase Z is the long-rumored second major Black Ops Cold War Zombies map, set in Vietnam. After months of speculation, we finally have details about the new location where we’ll be fighting off waves of undead.
In Firebase Z, players are tasked with rescuing Samantha Maxis from the Omega group. And while surviving against new assault waves, you’ll even go up against the Zombies Elder Gods.
Check out the new Cold War Firebase Z trailer here. There’s also a Firebase Z gameplay trailer that shows off the sneaky new Mimic Zombies.
New Wonder Weapon: R.A.I. K-84
Of course, fighting off the undead hordes is often a losing battle. Thankfully, you’ll have Cold War Zombies’ newest Wonder Weapon on your side.
The R.A.I. K-84 is a cross between a Ray Gun and an AK-47, as the Soviets managed to combine futuristic technology with their own weaponry. It looks as though the gun will have both a standard fire and a detonating secondary bomb.
New Perk: Tombstone Soda
Tombstone Soda is the newest perk coming to Cold War Zombies, exclusive to the Firebase Z map. In the past, players have been able to use the Perk to drop a crate containing all their items upon death.
In Firebase Z, Tombstone will turn players into a Shadow in the Dark Aether when downed. Using your weaponry, you’ll be able to clear undead enemies and revive yourself.
At Tier 1, you’ll be able to regenerate health in Shadow form. Tier 2 increases your down time to a full minute.
And finally, Tier 3 brings back the Tombstone stash, where players can collect their items and resources after death.
Dead Ops Arcade Solo Advanced Start Mode
Fans of the Dead Ops Arcade 3 are in luck, as the new Cold War February 4 update brings additional content to the mode.
In the new Dead Ops Arcade Solo Advanced Start mode, players can get a boosted start in-game, based on their high score. While this feature disables the challenges, stats, and leaderboard functions, it will certainly prove helpful.
Those who are yet to get the “Reunited with Fidolina” achievement can do so with ease, thanks to the Advanced Start mode.
Black Ops Cold War Double XP
And to top it all off, players can look forward to earning Double XP in Black Ops Cold War again soon.
Both Cold War and Warzone players can make use of Double XP from 10 AM PT February 5 – 8. If you’re on a PlayStation console, your Double XP will kick in on February 4, a full 24 hours early.
With that in mind, there’s more to enjoy than just new content when returning to Black Ops Cold War.
