We're finally getting the next Round-Based Zombies map for Black Ops Cold War and the hype is real. Mauer Der Toten is due to release tomorrow and we know the exact time. So, synchronise watches, grab those Pack-A-Punched Weapons, and prepare for an undead onslaught of epic proportions.
LATEST - What Time Does Mauer Der Toten Release?
We know Mauer Der Toten is due to release on July 15th (as it's plastered on almost every recent announcement regarding the new Zombies map) but what time does it come out specifically?
Well, if you're on the West Coast... You actually get it a bit earlier, in theory. Mauer Der Toten is due to release at the following time:
- PST - 21:00 (July 14)
- EST - 00:00 (July 15)
- BST - 05:00 (July 15)
This is the same time as all the other Season 4 Reloaded content and means that you should be able to start unlocking the OTs-9 SMG, use Mule Kick, or jump into Rush 24/7 on Multiplayer from this time.
Alright, What About The Main Quest?
If you're a Zombies veteran, you'll know that the Main Quest never starts the same time the map releases. There are a few theories as to why Treyarch do this, but either way... It means that you'll have to wait if you want to jump into Mauer Der Toten's narrative Easter Egg.
You don't have to wait long, though. The Main Quest is due to start at 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST on July 15th. This is a mere thirteen hours after the map comes out and, for many of us, not enough time to even play Mauer Der Toten before. It certainly favours those in the PST timezone.
Here's a hint at what's to come, in any case...
Finally, it's worth noting that you can actually preload the Season 4 Reloaded update for Black Ops Cold War right now. This should automatically install when the update releases. If not, installation takes a matter of minutes. With the size of Black Ops Cold War updates nowadays, this could save you important Zombie-killing time.
