As we enter the final month of 2018, Treyarch is gearing up for the release of tons of new content for Black Ops 4, but it looks like one new piece of content has leaked ahead of schedule.

It’s been previously confirmed that the first DLC for Black Ops 4 will include a new Zombies map, but there has been no official confirmation of when it will drop or what the map will contain.

Despite this, however, the one eagle-eyed ‘pizza963’ has managed to uncover the title and official description of the brand-new map far ahead of schedule.

According to the listing discovered and posted to Reddit, the map will be called ‘Night of the Dead’ and feature characters battling Zombies in England during the early 1900s.

The official description, translated from French reads as follows:

England, 1912. Associates of the relic hunter Alistair Rhodes, including a pseudo seer, a show cowboy, a retired general and his loyal butler, are invited to participate in a grand ball. But no one suspects the horror that awaits them.

This leak falls in line with December 4’s leak of all four characters that will be included with the DLC, who all happen to resemble famous actors and actresses.

All four Zombies skins leaked on December 4 after the latest Black Ops 4 patch.

Treyarch has yet to give any indication as to when this DLC will drop, but given that details are starting to pop up, the release could be imminent.

The next major update for Black Ops 4 will come on December 11, with new Multiplayer and Blackout content having been revealed already.

Given that teasers have been posted on consecutive days, it could be that another teaser for Zombies could be on the way on December 6.

Scump explains why new CDL “bubble” in Texas is a big advantage

All of OpTic Chicago, along with a majority of other pro teams, have relocated to Texas for the Call of Duty League 2021 season, and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner believes it’s going to give them a huge “advantage” over their CDL rivals.

With the switch to online play in 2020, teams were scattered across the United States. Players could be competing from the other side of the country with a significant network disadvantage.

Given LAN events are still a ways off due to the ongoing global crisis, a majority of CDL pros have established a makeshift “bubble” in Texas to combat the issue. With all players in one location, Scump argues that it only benefits teams for the year ahead.

“I absolutely love it,” he said on January 27. With his teammates all training out the H3CZQUARTERS facility, there appear to be no excuses for the upcoming season.

Being in the one location affords a degree of team bonding that you just can’t get online, according to Scump.“I think it has tremendously improved our team chemistry. Every single night [the team] is always hanging out after scrims.”

“You can just tell. It feels like we trust each other a lot more inside of the game. We trust each other to make good decisions and do the right things on the map.”

From OpTic’s standpoint, it’s not just the team chemistry that’s proving valuable. “On top of that, you have the sheer connection advantage,” Scump added.

“I believe 31 of 48 players are in Texas right now and it might even be more than that. Clearly, Texas has some sort of connection advantage for people to want to pick up their lives and move down here to compete.”

We’ve already seen the move pay dividends for OpTic as they recently blitzed through the LA Thieves 3-0 in the Kickoff Classic. “We’ve been playing super good. I can’t even remember the last time we lost a scrim set. It’s been amazing to have the whole team here and I think it’s only going to benefit us moving forward.”

With other teams having followed suit with a move to Texas, it should help establish a more even playing field for a majority of matchups this year.
