Expect the mid season update to arrive between 1-4pm ET / 6-9pm GMT.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War's mid-season update will arrive on January 14 on all platforms.

New Multiplayer And Zombies Content
Treyarch has already revealed some of the new content we can expect from the January 14 update for Black Ops Cold War in a blog post.
Multiplayer will see a brand new Fireteam map, called Sanatorium, and a new 6 v 6 mode called Dropkick. Dropkick will have players fighting over control of the nuclear codes.
Meanwhile, Zombies players will get access to the new Cranked mode, where every zombie kill will reset a timer counting down to your death. Raid will also join the Onslaught mode for PlayStation players. New Dark Aether intel will also be available for players on PS4 and PS5.
As always you can expect your weekly dose of new challenges, cosmetics and more.
Once we have more details and official patch notes, we will be sure to update the article.
As always, this new weekly update will come with a Playlist update, rotating out modes available to players.
This will also introduce new special game modes to play, such as 24/7 playlists, featuring only a select few maps and modes.
What Else To Expect?
When it comes to other content we can expect, we will, of course, see new cosmetics and bundles added to the store.
However, next week's update will also come with a collection of new balances and bug fixes to ensure the game is giving all players the most enjoyable experience.
