Patch Notes Out Soon
Although players were expecting to see the patch notes by now, it has somewhat confirmed when we will see them.
We will now see the patch notes as the latest update goes live.
Mauer Der Toten Release Time Detailed
We know that Mauer Der Toten is due out on July 15th, but you can actually play it ahead of time in certain time zones. (Not really, but technically?)
Essentially, Mauer Der Toten starts in-game at 21:00 PST (July 14th) / 00:00 EST / 05:00 BST on July 15th. The Main Quest doesn't start until 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST though, so there's plenty of time to play without the burdens of finding hidden objects and boss fights.
That being said, this only really accommodates those in and around the PST time zone. All the new Black Ops Cold War content should be available at the same time. This includes the new OTs-9 SMG and Mule Kick perk.
New Zombies Map Release Date
It took a while, but Treyarch has confirmed that Mauer der Toten, the new Zombies map for Black Ops Cold War will release on July 15, hopefully alongside the mid-season 4 update for Warzone.
New Gameplay Trailer
As part of a blog post, Treyarch released a Gameplay Trailer for Mauer Der Toten and you can check it out below.
It gives us our first full look at the map in action, how it is laid out, and what weapons we're likely to come across.
We don't want to ruin it for you, so take a look when you get a second.
Mauer Der Toten To Get Modular Wonder Weapon
We have also been given a first look at the Mauer Der Toten Wonder Weapon via a faux blueprint with blacked-out words.
It's something we've seen before, as Firebase Z's R.A.I. K-84 was given the same treatment ahead of launch, so we're pretty confident that we're looking at the new Wonder Weapon.
As you can see in the Tweet below, it looks like there's going to be a modular feature for the new Wonder Weapon as we can see a number of variations on the base weapon.
This is, in a way, similar to Die Maschine's D.I.E. Machine. The D.I.E. Shockwave is the basic firing mode of the weapon but there's various Ammo Mods around the map that can alter how it fires.
We don't know for sure what the new Wonder Weapon is called just yet, but we're expecting to find out more in the coming days.
Mauer Der Toten Intel Recap
Treyarch has released an "intel recap" for Mauer Der Toten ahead of further information. We've been seeing small teasers over the last couple of weeks and it looks like the team behind Black Ops Cold War are gearing up for an undead-themed mid-season update for the title.
Below, we've got the latest word on what Treyarch has shared about Mauer Der Toten so far:
" If you’ve been keeping up with our social channels, you’ve also seen the state of Berlin after the recent undead invasion, Omega Group’s plans to keep the truth hidden from the public, and Colonel Kravchenko’s true motivation behind capturing the Requiem strike team for his own ends. "
If that doesn't make any sense, we've also got the teasers being shared on said "social channels" below in chronological order. It's also worth noting that Treyarch has promised us a look at the new "technology" in play soon. Basically, Wonder Weapon news is on the way.
