In this upcoming season, Cold War brings multiple brand new maps, arsenals, and heaps of crossover content with Call of Duty Warzone and Zombies as part of the season’s update to be launched within the week.
The first Call of Duty name that will have an update for this week’s Season 5 debut shall be Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War. However, this update doesn’t necessarily mean that the gamers will be getting early access. With that being said, Black Ops Cold War and COD Warzone have decided to have the same launching date for Season 5.
Call of Duty Season 5 Update
The developers of the game Treyarch and Raven Software have decided to launch the Call of Duty updates separately. Since they are expecting that most of the players will rush back to both titles for Season 5, updating the games 24hours apart will lessen the chance of any possible problems during the update.
According to express.co.uk, the upcoming additional five new maps for Cold War will be very familiar for the avid fans of Black Ops. Gamers will have the chance to enjoy Echelon Map which houses a standard of 6v6 matches.
Additional Cold War Maps
Here are some of the descriptions for each new map:
Slums – This map is a small multiplayer map and is first introduced in Call of Duty Black Ops II. Taking the battles to the streets, Slums is located deep within Panama City.
Gamers get to hide inside the shop within the map or start a long-range battle in the park that contains a central fountain. This map also contains corridors for players to move around.
Drive-In – Same with Slums, this map is first introduced in COD Black Ops. This map is best for medium to long-range combats.
The map is set in Galactic Drive-In in the midwestern United States, an abandoned outdoor cinema with a big screen, a place where snipers can showcase their ability.
Zoo – The map is set in an abandoned Soviet Zoo. It is a medium to large urban territory and has several empty animal cages, souvenir shops, and several dry fountains.
The developers have stated that riding the monorail is vital to pass the map safely. This will also give the gamer a good vantage point.
Cold War Season 5 Update Time
As confirmed by publisher Activision, the COD Cold War Season 5 update will happen on August 11 at 5 AM BST. However, gamers will have to wait for another 24 hours to access the new content even if the patch is available for download on August 10.
This means that Call of Duty Cold War and Warzone Season 5 official launching will be on August 12 at 5 AM BST.
Furthermore, Activision also stated that after the updates of Black Ops Cold War on August 10 at 9 PM PT and Warzone on August 11 at 9 PM PT, gamers will finally get a hold of Call of Duty Balck Ops: Cold War and Warzone on the 12th of August at 9 PM PT.
