Activision has finally pulled the tarp off Season 2 of Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War and Warzone, and revealed that the release date is set for February 25. When the new season kicks off, you can expect to find loads of new content for both Black Ops – Cold War and Warzone, including new game modes, weapons, and progression goals. There’s a lot to get through here, so let’s dive in.
First, Warzone’s Verdansk map is getting new and improved points of interest, which the Call of Duty blog provides a few ominous hints about. There are new places to scavenge for weapons and gear, but Activision advises caution – “something major is beginning to rumble deep underground”, the blog says. One of the new locations is a cargo tanker that matches the description of a missing vessel called Vodianoy. “The ship is carrying unknown cargo, and its crew are not able to be contacted”, the blog reads, and so odds are pretty good that something bad has happened to them.
Warzone is getting two new modes for Season 2. Exfiltration will launch during the season, and it introduces new mechanics to Warzone’s battle royale game rules. In Exfiltration, players will race to find and secure a portable radio. If your team is able to find it and hold on to it for a certain amount of time, you’ll win the game – but whoever’s holding it will be marked on all players’ maps as if they were a Most Wanted Contract HVT.
