Black Ops Cold War Season 5 has started and there's a lot of Zombies content being added considering we only saw Mauer Der Toten added a handful of weeks ago. Here's everything you need to know about the update's contribution to Call of Duty Zombies.
New Zombies content coming in Season 5
" Death Perception... [grants] any agent who drinks it the ability to “see” obscured enemies by giving them a bright outline. Of course, the real “secret sauce” of this Perk lies in its five additional upgrades through its Skill Tiers; use those Aetherium Crystals to gain access to powerful new effects designed to help your squad survive even longer."
" Upon activation, lightning will shoot out between you and your allies, stunning and damaging normal enemies. Upon upgrading its Skill Tiers, this electricity can start stunning Special and Elite Zombies, and even boost your squad’s movement speed!"
" After the events in Berlin, Dark Aether Outbreak Zones have continued to appear far beyond Eurasia, with the latest site crackling to life in the Algerian Desert. This huge new region (codenamed “Collateral”) has become an incredibly unstable area, making it a prime spot to harvest Aetherium Crystals and further investigate the Dark Aether."
"Consider it a step up from the Combat Bow if you happen to have a bit of extra Rare Salvage and you’re not afraid to get a bit closer to the soon-to-be burning undead."
" Players will encounter the all-new Transport Objective, which tasks you and your squad with ensuring an important drivable Requiem machine makes its way across the Outbreak Zone safely."
" Need a bit more firepower than the FAV? How about a Tank straight from the Warsaw Pact? This new Outbreak vehicle is ready to blow holes in Ordas, Krasny Soldats, and everything else without a pulse with its massive cannon, available in several regions at the start of the season. There’s also a mounted minigun atop the Tank for your fellow agent to take down scores of undead foot soldiers, and it’s got plenty of armor to withstand many a scratch and bite from the clawing masses."
" Getting around the Outbreak Zone becomes trivial with this handy device, allowing Operators to spend less time on foot and more time shooting zombies in the face. Visit the Crafting Table to get your hands on the Grapple Gun at the start of the season."
When does Season 5 start?
UPDATE: Season 5 has started and all the Zombies content added above should be available in-game. Good luck, Requiem.
All of the above is due to arrive in Black Ops Cold War Zombies at the start of Season 5. This means you should be able to access it all from August 12th at the following times:
- 21:00 August 11th - PST
- 00:00 August 12th - EST
- 05:00 August 12th - BST
There's going to be a season's worth of intel to collect in Onslaught, Outbreak, and Black Ops Cold War's round-based maps too. This should help to explain the aftermath of Mauer Der Toten and what's next for the Dark Aether storyline being developed...
