ITS BACK! The Zombies are back in Nuketown

Firstly, Nuketown '84 has been added back to the Onslaught map list on Zombies with a few added fixes.

The 12v12 mode now has four maps too, with 'Miami' now on the map list alongside Crossroads, Armada, and Cartel.


Other Issues

As part of the patch notes, Treyarch has also acknowledged some ongoing issues they are aware of.

We’re also tracking two particularly tricky issues since yesterday’s update:

  • Diamond Camo progress is still appearing locked for some players, despite being earned.
  • Some Xbox players are seeing a “Trial Has Ended” pop-up message on the front-end menu.

Release Date

Treyarch released this update on Wednesday, 9 December.

The update brings fixes from the previous update along with some general gameplay adjustments.
