New Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Update Is Live, Balances Zombies’ Outbreak Mode

Treyarch Studios has released the full patch notes for the latest update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The update is currently live–it’s primarily geared towards implementing bug fixes and objective tuning to Zombies.

The update focuses on Zombies’ new Outbreak mode, which is an open-world, co-op variation of Call of Duty’s traditional Zombies. Instead of fighting off hordes of zombies in a series of rounds, Outbreak tasks a team of players with accomplishing a series of objectives in any order they wish across a vast open space that’s filled with zombies.

Also in the patch notes, Treyarch details what players can expect in Rapid Fire Moshpit and Dead Ops Arcade: First Person, both of which are scheduled to go live in Black Ops Cold War on March 4. Rapid Fire Moshpit is a playlist composed of Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed, and Hardpoint but only on the game’s smallest maps. Dead Ops Arcade: First Person remakes Dead Ops Arcade 3–it’s just now played in first-person.
