Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Teases New Zombies Outbreak Map, More Playlists Join the Fray

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War‘s Zombies Outbreak mode takes place across a trio of Fireteam maps set in the Ural Mountains. A teaser from developer Treyarch seems to suggest that number is soon to increase with the addition of another existing Fireteam map to the list. While we wait, this week’s update has added more multiplayer playlists amongst its bug fixes and gameplay improvements.

The map shows a brief glimpse of the Sanatorium Fireteam map. Also set within the Ural Mountains, the map features an island sat in the middle of a large lake and connected to the rest of the map only by a suspension bridge. There are also several imposing buildings that hark back to the Soviet era. The map will join Alpine, Golova, and Ruka as another one of the Outbreak regions. Treyarch had promised “additional investigations and objectives in the future” before the mode was released, but whether or not it will add any new objectives to the five that already exist remains to be seen.

For now, players can try out the latest update to come to the game. The weekly update’s highlights include new multiplayer playlists, E-tool weapon tuning, and new League Play maps. The full patch notes can be seen below:
