Treyarch is reportedly set to add a new “open-world style” Zombies mode — apparently titled ‘Outbreak’ — to Black Ops Cold War in the near future, according to Call of Duty leaks on Twitter and Reddit.
The new Black Ops Cold War leak was first posted by Call of Duty insider ‘Okami,’ before being shared around Twitter and Reddit on February 10.
“According to the leaker, this new mode would be an “open-world style” Zombies mode, added to Black Ops Cold War in a coming season. The upcoming playlist — apparently totally “co-op” — will be played on a yet-to-be-released “large-scale Fireteam map.”
The playlist will reportedly be a “Treyarch-style” PVE mode.
There have been limited details beyond early reports, but Dexerto believes any new Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War will continue the series’ rebooted story.
If the new “Outbreak” rumors show true, this won’t be the first time Treyarch has added Zombies to a huge-sized map in Call of Duty — early Warzone, “Blackout” had small pockets of undead AI randomly spawn through its its Black Ops 4 battle royale matches.
Black Ops 2 also had a semi-open Zombies map, TranZit. The transport-based mode saw players battle across a huge battlefield via robot-controlled bus.
