Previously, the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War community has seen enough hints towards some of the DLCs. Out of these, Treyarch has already revealed the first DLC coming to the Zombies. The Firebase Z map, which comes to the game on February 4, is set in Vietnam. The Dong Hoi based map was one of the locations that came up on Grigori Weaver’s computer screen. The Easter Egg in this map will revolve around rescuing Samantha Maxis. However, fans are yet to receive any information on the other three.

Inside of the intro cutscene for the Die Maschine map, players also find that one of the upcoming Zombies DLC maps takes place in a location in the Ural Mountains in Russia. The precise location of the map could be Mt. Yamantau, which houses a Soviet doomsday bunker. The map has also featured in the Black Ops Cold War, as well as Black Ops 1 campaigns.

Another map location that had previously surfaced through reports is Berlin. Revolving around the classic Zombies map Kino Der Toten, the third DLC would take fans to Germany. This hint comes from the map in the Cold War menu that marks a location in Germany pointing towards the radio tower in Berlin. It is the same radio tower visible in the Kino Der Toten map, hence the inference.

Finally, this leaves us with the last DLC map. Previously there was no available information on the map. However, due to the efforts of some Redditors, there is finally some clarity on what can fans expect as the last Zombies DLC. According to reports, the map is code-named “The Giant (Der Riese) Remake”. As of now, this is the only available information and nothing else is certain.
