LATEST - Map Changes and New Weapons

Black Ops Cold War's Season 6 is introducing a selection of new weapons to Warzone alongside the aforementioned Map Changes. Here's everything you need to know about both...

Map Changes - Verdansk '84

  • Stadium & Downtown are being turned to rubble - underground explosions have caused huge "cracks" to open up across these urban areas.
  • New Underground Bunkers - The disruption has led to the discovery of a WW2 bunker network underneath Verdansk.
  • New Season, New Gulag - A Gulag inspired by the original Modern Warfare Gulag is coming in Season 6.

PRELOAD TIME - When can you download the update?

Warzone's Season 6 update is going to be available to preload at a different time than Black Ops Cold War's Season 6 update - despite the shared content - so it's worth knowing which game is updating and when.

Warzone Season 6 should be available to download from the following times:

  • 21:00 October 6th - PST
  • 23:00 October 6th - EST

  • 04:00 October 7th - BST

At the moment, we don't know how big the download will be on any platform. Raven Software should release their Patch Notes for Season 6 on October 5th - these will detail the download size on consoles and PC.

RELEASE DATE - When is Season 6 & what's coming?

Season 6 is actually expected to start at the same time as the Warzone update, strangely. This means you should be able to access all the new Black Ops Cold War content in Warzone at the following times:

  • 21:00 October 6th - PST
  • 23:00 October 6th - EST

  • 04:00 October 7th - BST

This isn't confirmed, though, but a time we've looked at previous title updates to estimate. We don't think Treyarch is going to confirm this in any more detail than they have though, so take it with a small pinch of salt.

Season 6 is going to be a pretty big Warzone update, considering what we've seen in the past. Stadium and Downtown have been "cracked in half", the Original Gulag is coming back, and Alex Mason is joining the fight at long last. It's going to be an update you won't want to miss.
