Activision and Treyarch have released a new update in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, implementing a couple of changes and adding more content for players to enjoy as Season One continues to chug along.

With Season One well and truly underway in Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch are looking to deliver on their promise of consistently providing fresh and new content for the holiday season.

The December 22 patch, which was basically a playlist update with a couple of other things added in, has done just that, enabling a new 24/7 playlist for the ever-popular map, Raid, as well as Double Battle Pass Progression for players to level up their S1 BP faster.


Daily challenges have also arrived, giving users another easy way to earn XP. These challenges, which are available in multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone, come in a set of three at a time, refreshed every 24 hours.

Daily Challenges are now live in Black Ops Cold War multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone.

Here’s everything you need to know about this latest update:
