Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is bringing back its Zombies mode with a soft reboot, but it will still feature some familiar characters and locales. In fact, according to the announcement, the mode will take place on the very first Zombies map.
The “Nacht der Untoten” map is coming back from Call of Duty: World at War. That was the first game to feature the Zombies mode, and it was a secret mode that would become unlocked after finishing the campaign. This time it’s being revised to fit the new Cold War setting. You’ll see the outpost as it looks in the 1980s instead of the ’40s, and it’s been significantly expanded to include the lab that houses Die Maschine and the outdoor area surrounding the lab.
The story will bring back a familiar character, as well. Grigori Weaver from the original Black Ops will lead a CIA-backed team, codenamed Requiem. Weaver’s team is investigating a bunker which has also attracted the attention of the Soviet clandestine force Omega Group. Activision promises the story of Zombies will unfold slowly over time, but this refreshed version of Zombies won’t necessarily tie neatly into the previous canon.
A multiplayer beta is coming next month–without Zombies, it appears–and preordering Black Ops Cold War will get you early access. PS4 has the earliest unlock time due to its exclusivity arrangement with Activision. Then Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is coming November 13, just after the launch of Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PlayStation 5.
