Black Ops Cold War is finally about to get a new Zombies map, but the leak of 2 additional maps might confirm a Season 2 launch.
Since launch, Black Ops Cold War Zombies fans have been a little lacking in content. Besides the Cranked and Jingle Hells modes, Treyarch's latest Zombies mode has been somewhat neglected this time around.
But all that is about to change, as Firebase Z joins Die Maschine in the Cold War roster in a few days' time. The second map looks like an incredibly interesting location, with a lot of new content to explore.
And what's more, there may actually be 2 more Cold War Zombies maps coming soon, as fans speculate about a new leak.
These maps were first teased in the Firebase Z official trailer, but you'll have to look closely to spot them.
Leaked Black Ops Cold War Zombies Map Set in the USA?
Thanks to new information revealed in Firebase Z, we know the location of 2 new Zombies maps. One is a previously leaked Cold War location, Berlin, and the other Zombies map may well be set in the USA.
During the trailer, right when the Aether Reactor goes off, a map is visible on the wall monitors. And as YouTuber TheGamingRevolution points out, there are a couple of blinking lights to see.
These locations are both labeled as 'Identified Outbreak Zones' which appears to confirm that they are upcoming map locations.
We've actually seen teases like this before, as a similar map in the Die Maschine intro and the Cold War Zombies menu also indicates an outbreak in Berlin.
Given the location of the Berlin red dot, fans actually believe we know what's coming to Cold War soon. Many users are predicting that Black Ops Cold War Zombies is getting a Kino Der Toten remake as DLC.
Of course, this Kino der Toten will likely use the old location and expand upon it, much like Die Maschine did with Nacht der Untoten. Regardless, we're excited to see what comes of this leak.
Hopefully, this new map will come with yet another new Wonder Weapon like Firebase Z's R.A.I. K-84.
Black Ops Cold War Zombies Alcatraz Leak?
However, the other map location is definitely set in North America, with fans believing it to be set in San Francisco. This could confirm that Cold War Zombies is heading to Alcatraz in a future update.
This location has already appeared in Blackout, Treyarch's attempt at a battle royale mode. It wouldn't be farfetched to imagine that the location could return, in the undead survival mode.
As for when these 2 new Zombies maps could release, TheGamingRevolution points out something interesting. At the end of a recent blog post, Treyarch indicated big plans for Zombies in Season 2.
"Before we go, we'll leave you with this: what we've talked about today is just a glimpse of what's planned for Zombies in 2021. If you think you know what to expect in Season Two... thing again."
With that in mind, we could well see both maps release in the coming season. After all, Cold War Season 1 brought us multiple Zombies locations, and Season 2 appears to be ramping up dramatically.
However, with one Cold War Zombies player recently crashing at Round 506, we hope the new maps are more stable than Die Maschine.
In the past, Treyarch confirmed a new Zombies map in Cold War Season 2. However, it's also possible that the developer was talking about Firebase Z, which was pushed forward.
In the meantime, check out the full Firebase Z map layout ahead of the new update. It helps to prepare when dealing with the undead, after all.
