The activation for Season 1 in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has been postponed: Treyarch and Activision announce a new date for the first season in the new first-person shooter. Like the developers in a current Share blog post, the launch will now take place on December 16. Before that, the starting shot should be given on December 10th. The developers need a few extra days to "finalize the last few things". That Activision might also be the potential highlight Cyberpunk 2077 (to be released on December 10th) shouldn't be entirely unlikely.

For the Black Ops Cold War Season 1, Treyarch and Activision promise the "biggest free content drop in Black Ops history". Players can look forward to additional content such as maps, operators, weapons and more. The developers had already announced that the implementation of Warzone at Black Ops Cold War would also take place with the activation of Season 1. Now they confirm: With the start, players will have access to a new Battle Royale map. Last week's leaks show that with Rebirth Island a remake of the Alcatraz map returns from blackout. There are also more than 30 Black Ops Cold War weapons and a new BR game mode to launch. A new gulag experience is also announced.

With the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 1 there are also new multiplayer maps, new 6v6 modes and playlists as well as the return of 2vs2 Gunfight with four new maps and a big new Fireteam map into the game. For the launch, the developers have confirmed the 6vs6 map Raid known from Black Ops 2: The map will be available from December 16 at Black Ops Cold War. Also announced are new zombies modes, season challenges and a seasonal prestige system in which you can climb up to 1,000 levels. (buy now € 53.99 )

As a little consolation for the additional waiting time, Treyarch is organizing a double XP event in Black Ops Cold War from December 12th until Season 1 is activated. During the event you will receive double weapon XP and double experience points. Between December 8th and 15th, fans will again have access to two free bundles that include operator skins, blueprints and calling cards. Additional information can be expected in the course of the week.
