The studio recently released the content roadmap for the upcoming season of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Just like the previous seasons, the developers have outdone themselves, preparing a stacked roadmap for both games. Black Ops Cold War gets a majority of the new content, including lots of additions to the Zombies mode too.

Call of Duty Warzone, on the other hand, doesn’t get a lot in terms of content. However, according to the roadmap, players will definitely see a map update as well as a new event called ‘Hunt for Adler’. There will also be new operators and weapons coming to both the games via the Battle Pass and some through the mid-season update.

The arrival of Season 3 adds two new maps to Black Ops Cold War. The new multiplayer maps include Yamantau, a 6v6 map, and Diesel, a 2v2 and 6v6 map. Additionally, Call of Duty classic map Standoff will also arrive mid-season for a 6v6 gameplay along with Duga, a multi-team map.

Other additions include the return of the popular multiplayer mode Sticks and Stones. Moreover, there is also the in-season arrival of a new mode called ‘Multi-Team Elimination’. Finally, players will also witness the new Strafe Run scorestreak, which allows them to call airstrikes on the map.

On the Zombies’ end of things, the new Outbreak region Duga finally arrives. The region comes with new intel, two new vehicles (Cargo Truck and FAV), and the new Toxic Growth field upgrade.
