Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Mid-Season Update Teased, Here's What We Know

Treyarch offers a glimpse at what's coming to Black Ops Cold War on January 14.


Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is getting another big update soon, as developer Treyarch has now teased a "mid-season update" that will land on January 14.

This update to Season 1 adds a huge new Fireteam map called Sanatorium, along with a new 6v6 multiplayer mode called Dropkick. Treyarch did not provide any specifics on what this mode is or how it plays, however.

For Zombies, the mid-season update will introduce a Cranked mode that resets the timer every time you kill a zombie. The Onslaught mode in Zombies, meanwhile, introduces the Raid map. PlayStation fans are getting some exclusive content, too, in the form of new Dark Aether intel.

More details about the mid-season update will presumably be shared in the days ahead.

The Season One rollout, which brought Black Ops Cold War weapons to Warzone, was a little rocky. Players spoke out about various issues, and the developers responded with nerfs to a variety of weapons, including the overpowered DMR 14. Looking ahead, the developers have told fans to keep sending in their feedback so the studio can make the game better.
