For Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is facing a major update before. The date for the mid-season patch is already known: The downloads will start on January 14th. Treyarch had previously announced that it would publish playlist updates on Thursdays from now on. The specific patch notes with all changes and innovations are not yet available. However, the developers grant in one current blog entry a little preview of the content to be expected.

The Fireteam Sanatorium card, which is located in a less densely overgrown mountain area, is new. Land, sea and air battles await you on an extensive map. It was recently speculated that the big lake from now on also on a new warzone map could play a role.

With the update, the developers also play the new 6-vs-6 mode, Dropkick, in which two squads fight for control of a briefcase that contains secret nuclear codes. The team that reaches 200 points first decides the round for itself. Fans of the zombies mode can let off steam in the new cranked mode. Here you reset a timer with every zombie kill: If it runs out, your character explodes – and the round is over. PlayStation players get a new map for Zombies Onslaught with Raid.

At the same time, Treyarch announces that the Zombies mode for free on all platforms from January 14-21 lets play. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (buy now € 53.99 ) is available on PC and consoles.
