New Cranked Zombies mode comes to Black Ops Cold War, plus Zombies free access week
For the first time in Call of Duty history, Treyarch’s Zombies mode will be available for free through the Zombies Free Access Week. This free access period will be available to all players through the PlayStation store and includes the following game modes:
Need a Zombies experience with a bit more urgency? Then give Cranked Zombies a try.
Just like in regular Die Maschine, you’ll be airlifted in with a weapon of your choice within a loadout. However, once the first Zombie hits the floor, the clock starts ticking away. Your Operator will automatically go down if they fail to kill another Zombie within a short period of time.
Keep watch of the clock – and your six – to survive this fast-paced variation of the traditional Zombies game mode.
Onslaught (PlayStation exclusive*)
Those who have a PlayStation can access Onslaught, a fast-paced two-player Zombies experience on Black Ops Cold War’s Multiplayer maps.
In this mode, your duo will use your loadouts to fight against hyper-aggressive waves of undead forces. Unlike traditional Zombies, a Dark Aether Orb will confine you to a specific space on the map until it is charged by the souls of the undead.
As the safe area shifts, expect increasingly difficult surges of enemies, including incredibly powerful Elites, to test your duo’s survival skills. Slay enough of these Elites, and you’ll earn special medals and exclusive* weapon blueprints.
An abandoned Polish laboratory containing a massive particle collider has opened a rift into a dimension that contains unexplainable monstrosities and undead forces. As part of the international faction known as Requiem, you will infiltrate and try to survive through waves of zombies through multiple rounds as you either uncover the secrets of Die Maschine or exfiltrate early with your life intact (and some great rewards to boot).
Based on the original Zombies map Nacht der Untoten, Die Maschine is the classic Zombies experience where up to four operators can drop in and attempt to survive the horrors that lie in wait. Work together by using dozens of weapons, lethal and tactical equipment pieces, shock-and-awe inducing Scorestreaks, and Field Upgrades, special loadout items such as an Energy Mine or an instant-heal through the Healing Aura that charge up from killing Zombies.
Have you unlocked some Black Ops Cold War weapons while playing Warzone? Bring them into the fight through your starting loadout and upgrade them along the way with Salvage dropped by Zombies. You can also outfit yourself with a variety of wall weapons, take a chance with a random weapon pulled from the mystery box, or give any weapon a serious boost through the Pack-a-Punch Machine.
And to those Zombies diehards that have been enjoying these modes since launch, know that the Dark Aether storyline is far from over…
