Activision has detailed what it is pitching as "the largest free content drop in Black Ops history" as the publisher prepares for the launch of Season One inside Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. For that to happen though, the release has actually been pushed back by six days to 16th December 2020, but a series of Double XP weekends are primed and ready to tide you over until then. The Call of Duty blog post states a new map and mode are headed to Battle Royale title Call of Duty: Warzone, effectively confirming the previously leaked Rebirth Island location is indeed real. More than 30 base weapons from Black Ops Cold War will also be added to Warzone along with some Blueprint variants. Then there's a new Gulag experience too.
On the Black Ops Cold War multiplayer side of things, Activision stops short of revealing exactly how many maps will be added with Season One, but Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 map Raid will be one of them. The 2v2 Gunfight mode is back with four new maps and one more Fireteam location will be added. For the few of you still playing that mode, we guess.
"Make room on your Gunsmith table for free-to-acquire weapons and prepare for new Zombies modes, Season Challenges, and the full cross-title launch of the Seasonal Prestige system, with up to 1,000 Season Levels to progress through! It’s an unprecedented amount of free content and the teams are currently prepping for the biggest Season One launch week ever seen. For this to occur, we’re taking a few more days to finalize everything before unleashing this massive drop of new, free content to the community."
