  • New 40-player MP map Sanatorium
  • 6-v-6 Drop-Kick mode
  • Cranked mode
  • Free Access Week in Zombies

The new map, Sanatorium, is a “low-wooded hills area where your team will unearth the clandestine secrets of Project Golova.” It will feature land, water, and air vehicles that players can utilize to counter enemy attacks.

The new 6v6 Dropkick mode will find players in teams of six who will fight for a briefcase that contains nuclear codes. The first team to reach 200 points will win the match and set off an explosive ending.

However, Cranked is not a new mode inside CoD. This a classic multiplayer mode that players can now enjoy inside Zombies. Players will set off a timer after a kill, and if they do not execute another kill before that timer runs out, they will explode. Cranked players also move a lot faster with each kill.

Players on PlayStation will get a new map, Raid, for Zombies Onslaught. In addition, there will be fresh Dark Aether intel to discover.
