Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is changing things up this week with a new take on the existing Miami map to address player feedback. However, it's also getting a few new maps that should help to further shake up the game.

As announced by developer Treyarch on Twitter, the new version of Miami has a "close-quarters" layout and has been designed as a 6v6 map. What's more, this map takes place in the daytime, instead of night like the first version.

To give players every opportunity to play the map, Treyarch is creating a 24/7 playlist for Miami Strike when the map releases next week.

The original Miami map was criticized by players for being too dark, making it difficult to track enemies. The map is also very big, so matches often get cut off by time instead of kill count. It makes for simply not a very fun experience running around the map to find enemies.

It seems Treyarch has listened to the feedback and is responding with a new version of Miami. As you can see in the video above, the total size of the playable spaces has been cut down, which should lead to faster engagements. Other new elements appear to have been added to the Strike version of Miami as well.

The Cuban map, meanwhile, appears to be based on a level from near the end of the main campaign. it's more vertical than some of the others in the game, and it has wide-open spaces for snipers to do some damage.

Another new map, Golova, also debuts next week. It's one of Black Ops Cold War's larger maps, and it will support the new 40-player Hardpoint mode. Here's a teaser:

It's not precisely clear when Miami Strike, Mansion, or Golova will be added to Black Ops Cold War, but Treyarch has teased a mid-season update is coming next week, so it could be included in that.
