Black Ops Cold War and Warzone launch on October 7 – PlayStation.Blog
Season Six marks a watershed moment in the Black Ops Cold War and Warzone storylines, as players experience the epic conclusion of not one but two major events: the Black Ops Cold War finale. Zombies and the revolutionary near-destruction of Verdansk. And that only scratches the surface.
Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season Six hits PlayStation on October 7. Here’s what you need to know:
Alex Mason and New Weapons Lead Season Six Battle Pass
Prepare for the final showdown against Perseus with two new weapons, thanks to the Season Six Battle Pass: the .410 Ironhide and the Grav.
Purchase the Season Six Battle Pass to access 100 levels of new customization content, including Alex Mason, the original Black Ops protagonist, instantly unlocked at level 0.
Earn three more weapons – the Devastating Battle Ax, the new LAPA SMG, and the Dual-Purpose Hammer and Sickle – by completing their in-game challenges or purchasing their corresponding store bundles throughout the season.
Verdansk remodeled: leveled stadium and city center, new POIs and gulag
The ultimate showdown in Verdansk ’84 is approaching, and the situation could not be more dire. Adler became AWOL, causing panic among his CIA colleagues, and seismic devices near WWII bunkers set off a massive explosion in the city center.
The old Verdansk Stadium has collapsed, providing greater maneuverability throughout the area as you navigate your way through the destruction. Southwest of the stadium, Downtown was also fractured, its buildings overturned in the crack. Expect less verticality, as well as new areas to explore in both locations.
Explore the WWII bunkers around Verdansk to get a glimpse of the events to follow in Call of Duty: Vanguard. And when you are eliminated, fight for a second chance in the new Gulag. Inspired by the original 1v1 Verdansk maps of 2019, this gulag immerses you in the heart of the Zordaya prison complex.
Also expect new modes, an updated item pool, and balance changes coming in season six.
Enter Forsaken, the final chapter of Cold War Zombies
Season six brings the Black Ops Cold War Zombies experience to its epic conclusion. As an otherworldly force threatens to enter our dimension, Requiem’s attack team heads straight for the core of Omega Group’s secret test site in western Ukraine. What secrets could be contained inside?
Forsaken marks the final map based on the Black Ops Cold War Zombies turn and the conclusion of the opening chapter of the Dark Aether story. Those who wish to help Requiem must put their lives in danger to save the world.
New Perk, Magic Weapon, and Support Weapons
Become a living weapon with the next PhD Slider Perk. Once consumed, your Operator will trigger an explosion when it creeps into enemies, with the explosion’s size and damage increasing as you slide. Invest in Etherium Crystals to further enhance the perk, granting perks like full immunity to self-inflicted explosive damage and the ability to trigger explosions when dropped from great heights.
Discover the new Chrysalax magic weapon in Forsaken as part of his own quest, completing trials or taking a chance in the Mystery Box. Face new horrors lurking deep in the Dark Aether … and don’t forget to head to the Crafting Table for the new ARC-XD, Hand Cannon, and Support Weapons.
New multiplayer maps
Deprogram (6v6, Throw): Enter Adler’s shattered mind in a savage map featuring different fragments of his memories, put together for epic and surreal 6v6 combat. Use the red doors to travel between memories, set up positions of power and expert games.
Amerika (6v6, launch): A secret military installation in the heart of the USSR, Amerika depicts a Soviet facsimile of an American main street. Fight in a prop town featuring a pizza place, theater, and a Burger Town mockup.
Gluboko (2v2 and 3v3, Launch): Fight in small teams in an underground vault under the KGB headquarters. Expect quick and swift engagements as the fights unfold around the main briefing table.
PlayStation Onslaught content
A new Onslaught map – Deprogram – and Onslaught Elite Limited Time mode are also available in Season Six and exclusively on PlayStation.
Onslaught Elite is the standard tough game mode with one major difference: each push will spawn an Elite enemy, tripling the danger of the usual survival experience. High-value targets, such as Disciples and Storms, are also included in these pushes, making them a real test for most Elite Operators.
Survive 20 stacked waves in this new mode and you’ll get a legendary assault rifle blueprint known as “Rock Salt” to show off in your arsenal!
Prepare for the haunting
Get all of this and more, including new Prestige Levels, the new Warsaw Pact Operator “Fuze”, and for the horror fans out there… get ready for The Haunting. Halloween is just around the corner! Stay tuned for more.
