The Haunting Returns
January 14, 2021
The biggest year in Black Ops gets even bigger today with new Multiplayer and Zombies content, plus more new surprises coming later in Season One. Warzone also receives a new set of featured playlists alongside this week’s weapon tuning and game updates – read on for details below.
Today’s mid-season Black Ops Cold War update delivers a massive new 40-player Multiplayer map with Sanatorium, the all-new 6v6 Dropkick mode, the new Wakizashi melee weapon, our frantic new Cranked mode in Zombies, new in-game Zombies intel as Raid joins Onslaught on PlayStation, and more.
As announced in today’s new roadmap , there’s plenty more content on the way throughout the rest of Season one:
Get more details on today’s update and the future of Season One at the Call of Duty Blog.
For the first time in Call of Duty history, Zombies will be available for free during Zombies Free Access Week! Grab your friends and take on the terrors of “Die Maschine” and the new Cranked mode for free through Jan. 21. Download Zombies Free Access in your platform’s store to get started.
Note: We're aware of an issue where Zombies Free Access players can currently only be joined by other players at the main menu. If you're hosting other players as a Zombies Free Access player, be sure to squad up at the main menu before heading into Zombies.
As a reminder, we’re kicking off the weekend with Double Weapon XP in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone through 10AM PT Tuesday, Jan. 19th! Drop in and level up those weapons twice as fast, all weekend long.
