Some new Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Zombies content is coming, headlined by the new Firebase Z map, based on a new launch from developer Treyarch. This launch comes after the Aethernaut poster hinted at some forthcoming content related to the game’s ongoing zombies storyline, Dark Aether. The space and sci-fi themes that were featured on the poster also seems to be valid, based on the most recent Treyarch weekly meeting.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War has been massively popular since it was launched back in November 2020, specifically because of the upgraded zombie mode. The newest iteration of the game highlights new game modes such as Cranked, which puts players into a fast-paced mode where they must kill a zombie before the timer expires. Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War also improved the zombies mode to the next level by offering new maps.
Based on the latest weekly briefing from Treyarch, the next phase of the Dark Aether storyline will be continuing later today with the launch of Firebase Z. This will be the latest zombies map in the Dark Aether plot, following the events of Die Maschine. The development team hints that this new map will come with brand new enemies as well as a new Wonder Weapon to cut through hordes of zombies.
However, Firebase Z is not the only feature coming since a new zombies game mode, Dead Ops Arcade Solo Advanced Start mode is also arriving to the game. In this mode, players will be provided an advanced starting position based on the highest round they completed in Dead Ops Arcade 3 Solo and they can also obtain the “Reunited with Fidolina” achievement.
The new update will also mark the return of the Tombstone Soda perk from Call of Duty Black Ops 2. This will be available on both Die Maschine and Firebase Z. However, the perk will be functioning differently from before. It will no longer allow players to get back the guns and perks they had prior to being dropped, rather, turn them into shadows and allow them to revive themselves.
All of the new content is certain to bring players back from Call of Duty Warzone, specifically the new zombies map. The doubtful fate of Samantha Maxis will finally be unveiled and the creatures from on the other side of the Dark Aether portal will be uncovered.
Fans can take the battle back to Omega Group and test their bravery when the event goes online. In addition, PlayStation owners will also get to witness Express join the exclusive Onslaught map list along with new zombie intel that can be obtained inside the game once the update is released.
