In Call of Duty games, seasons usually accompany the battle pass. With the current one ending in the next 44 days, that puts the approximate date of the Season Two release at around February 24. Putting the release date behind us, it is time to look at all the new content lined up for players.

New maps, Zombies DLC, and More Weapons in Black Ops Cold War Season Two

Starting with new maps, in earlier leaks, Treyarch included some map files in the game and did not release them during Season One. Therefore, there is a high possibility that these might come to the game with the next season. Of the maps that were a part of the leaks, two are multiplayer maps similar to other Call of Duty games.

The first map is similar to the Jungle map from Black Ops I. It is set in the Vietnam war in most probably in Laos. The map also features in a photograph in the Pines multiplayer map which strengthens its existence in the game. The second map is most probably a version of the Highrise Call of Duty map. Both of these are maps are going to feature 6v6 gameplay.

In addition to 6v6 maps, there is also going to be a new Fireteam map based on a desert theme called Dunes. This comes after a major Fireteam addition in the mid-season update. Treyarch has many things planned for the Fireteam mode, and it appears that the mode is going to be the highlight of Black Ops Cold War alongside Zombies and the Campaign.
