After weeks of teasers, the official Call of Duty Blog unveiled concrete details about Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's next season of content today, the third since its integration with Activision's battle royale Call of Duty: Warzone. Four playable operators including Captain Price will be added into Black Ops Cold War throughout Season 3, though only him and Perseus agent Wraith will arrive right when the season begins on April 22.
New operators are just one part of the Season 3 update detailed by Call of Duty developers. Six weapons are being added, with three coming to Black Ops Cold War during launch week; four multiplayer maps and two new modes will become available throughout the season; and Zombies mode will get another Outbreak region, field upgrade, two vehicles, and additional intel for players to gather.
Meanwhile, a roadmap included in the Call of Duty Blog post details a map update coming to Warzone that will coincide with a limited-time event across both games called "Hunt for Adler." By completing in-game challenges, players can collect intel to learn more about the whereabouts of Black Ops lead character Russell Adler, earning a new operator skin, weapon charms, calling cards, and more in the process. It begins alongside Season 3, which goes live following updates to Black Ops Cold War at 9:00 p.m. PT on April 20, and to Warzone at 9:00 p.m. PT on April 21.
Many fans will likely be most interested in the beginning of the Warzone-centric content following the spread of Zombies and radiation across Verdansk during Season 2, resulting from a tanker ship with "remnants of deadly biochemical weapons" running aground. The blog post promises Verdansk has hit a critical level and will "heat up in a big way" starting April 21 with Operation Rapid Sunder, with another post featuring more details to be released that afternoon at 12:00 p.m. PT.
Fans of the franchise also found out more about what they can expect with regards to the technical aspects of Season 3 via today's blog post. Based on a user's platform, between 8.1 and 13.1 GB of space will need to be allotted for new content in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War; while between 25.2 and 25.9 GB will need to be allotted in Warzone.
Modern Call of Duty titles have had a history of issues with regards to the storage space needed for various content dumps in ongoing games. While Modern Warfare and Warzone have seen file size reductions to mitigate these concerns, the addition of Black Ops Cold War makes the situation more unwieldy for some. Players should make sure they have enough room for these updates before they release later this week, and be prepared for the mid-season Reloaded update as well as whatever comes next.
After this update, it seems like Call of Duty: Warzone’s M16 is alone at the top of the battle royale game’s meta. While the dual wield Sykovs were the perfect companion to the Tactical Rifle, this massive nerf has ensured they are nothing like they once were.
