Activision has unveiled Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War's Zombies Onslaught mode, which is confirmed to be a timed PlayStation exclusive, that won't be heading to other platforms for a whole year.

What is Zombies Onslaught?

Zombies Onslaught is a two player co-op experience, which is completely separate to this year's main Zombies narrative - Die Maschine.

Players are confined to a limited "orb" area ("Dark Aether damage" is inflicted if they stray outside) and zombies will begin to enter, wave after wave.

TEAMWORK: Stick close to your partner in Zombies Onslaught as waves of zombies approach!

Once a sufficient number have been eliminated, the orb, and the habitable area, will move - and as each game progresses, waves will introduce more "resilient, faster and deadlier" zombies, including powerful Elite enemies.

The ultimate goal is to stay alive, whilst racking up as many points as possible by continuing to pick off Elites.
