Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War And Warzone Season One Gets Delayed
The season will start about a week later than was previously scheduled, with new content for both games.
Though originally scheduled to arrive on December 10, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone will now get Season One content on December 16. The new season will be the largest free content drop in any Black Ops game, and there will be plenty of new goodies to try out across both titles. If you have fallen off of either game, this might be the right time to jump back in.
Black Ops Cold War will be getting a ton of new multiplayer content, including new maps, the Gunfight mode from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and the Fireteam map Raid--it's based on the Black Ops 2 map of the same name, despite Black Ops Cold War being set several decades before that game. We saw previous rumors online that a classic map would be coming back, and this could be it.
Zombies mode gets in on the fun, as well, with more modes and challenges, and a seasonal prestige system that is cross-title. This means your progress will likely carry over into the next Call of Duty game. Especially if you are someone who keeps playing Call of Duty until the next year's game releases, that is very good news. In general, progress starts over from scratch each year.
On the Warzone side, battle royale players get 30 weapons from Black Ops Cold War, including their different Blueprint versions, and a brand-new map and mode. There will also be some sort of new "Gulag experience," so things could look a little different after you get knocked out of a match.
Beginning December 12 and running until the new season drops, you'll be able to score double XP and weapon XP in Black Ops Cold War, and you can get two pre-season bundles for free by logging in between December 8--this Tuesday--and December 15. They contain things like operator skins, weapons, reticles, and calling cards.
