Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode detailed

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode has been detailed by developer Treyarch ahead of the game’s release on current- and next-gen consoles next month.

The four-player co-op mode will offer up a new narrative called Die Maschine alongside new protagonists. Zombies’ modes will be playable with both cross-play and cross-gen support, meaning players can party up with friends from different platforms and different platform generations (ie Xbox One and PS5).

“With more than a nod to ‘Nacht der Untoten’ – the map that started it all – ‘Die Maschine’ takes place in the early ‘80s, but its roots reach back even further into the past,” Treyarch said of the new narrative.

“As part of Requiem, a CIA-backed international response team led by Grigori Weaver from the original Black Ops story, operatives explore a World War II bunker that hasn’t only been ravaged by time…”

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War heads to Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X, PS4 and PS5 from 13 November.
