Black Ops Cold War rumors claim Warzone won’t change from Modern Warfare

A recent leak from a reputable source claims that Black Ops Cold War’s version of Warzone will feel very similar to Infinity Ward’s version and will feature the same mechanics.

A while back, it was revealed that ‘Call of Duty Warzone,’ the battle royale component of Modern Warfare, would be integrated into Treyarch and Raven Software’s upcoming game ‘Black Ops Cold War.’

During the latter’s multiplayer reveal event, developers announced that all content earned in the current version of Warzone would carry over into the Black Ops Cold War version, which confused some fans, considering how different the two games are. Now, it seems like we have some answers as to how the two games will integrate.

According to known CoD leaker TheLongSensation, the Black Ops Cold War version of Warzone will basically be the Modern Warfare version of the game, with new weapons, vehicles, and other cosmetics that better fit with the era.

Specifically, TheLongSensation says that the mechanics will remain identical, which makes it sound like Warzone will, essentially, be getting a Black Ops Cold War makeover. This means that mounting, leaning, doors, and everything else that Warzone players love (and hate) are all here to stay.

In addition, a new map for the game is apparently being worked on; however, TheLongSensation speculated that it might not be ready yet. That being said, there’s still a couple months between now and the game’s release, so unless it’s drastically behind, there’s still time for the map to be completed.

Overall, while this seems like a good idea, it’s hard to tell what the community might think of this move. While reception to Warzone is generally more positive than the base Modern Warfare experience, there are still some people who would want to see a complete overhaul of the game.

It’ll also be interesting to see if this turns out to be true. It’s hard to grasp the idea of basically a completely different game launching within the application of another game. Hopefully we know more soon.

Black Ops Cold War PlayStation-exclusive Zombies mode revealed

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Onslaught players will be dropped into multiplayer maps and forced to fight the undead.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
