It's finally here! Black Ops Cold War Season 3 is out now and there's loads of content on the way.
One of the highlights is the new Multiplayer maps! Standard 6v6 is finally getting more love after a controversial lack of maps in the early stages of release. Here's everything you need to know.
LATEST - Season 3 Has Started
We might be in the throes of the Warzone "Nuke Event", but the Cold War stops for no man (Or Nuclear Attack, we guess!)
Black Ops Cold War Season Three is available right now in-game and that means a few of the upcoming maps should be in the Playlist pools already.
Yamantau and Diesel are both now active in Black Ops Cold War's 6v6 multiplayer playlists, with Diesel also getting a 3v3 and 2v2 variant for Face-Off and Gunfight.
If you're an Outbreak player, the new Duga Multi-Team map is available in the COD Zombies mode now too!

Season 3 Maps Confirmed
Yamantau (6v6, Launch Week)
Bury your enemies in an avalanche of firepower as you fight through the crumbled remains of the Soviet observatory on Mount Yamantau. Battle through a massive downed satellite dish, snowy interiors, and broken catwalks, and fast-rope up and over your enemies to get the jump on the competition.
Diesel (6v6/2v2/3v3, Launch Week)
In the lonesome desert, this slice of Americana erupts into a battleground. Gear up for 6v6, as well as 2v2 and 3v3 in Gunfight on this fast-paced and frenetic map. Battle around the gas station and its surrounding buildings, smack dab in the middle of the badlands. Get frying.
Standoff (6v6, In-Season)
This Black Ops II classic is an icon to fans and pros alike, and in Season Three, it’s coming to Black Ops Cold War. Compete in 6v6 on this medium-sized map, which features a timeless three-lane feel and plentiful opportunities for outsmarting your opponents. Watch those buildings and mind the van over near the hay bales.
Duga (Multi-Team, In-Season)
Deploy with your squad to the Ural Mountains in this expansive new Multi-Team environment. Duga offers something for every playstyle, whether you prefer to move through the central admin offices for close-range battles, or work your way around the perimeter through the bus depot to the chemical processing plant for long-range battles. If you can’t immediately decide where to take your skills, try making your way atop the array tower for a fantastic view before parachuting off to your destination of choice.
Treyarch has also released the full Season 3 roadmap, which outlines what's coming to Black Ops Cold War over the next month or two.
Season 3 Release Date
As it stands, we're expecting Black Ops Cold War Season 3 to start on April 22nd. This is a day after the current Battle Pass expires and a few hours after the highly-anticipated "Nuke Event" is due to take place in Warzone.
There hasn't been any confirmation from Treyarch that this is the date, but they are keeping the focus on Warzone's event going into the next few days. However, we expect to see something more on the official social media channels soon.
Black Ops Cold War Season 3 should introduce several new weapons, at least one new Operator and a new Battle Pass on top of the new maps rumoured above.
