Among the most anticipated new features of Season 2 of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is Outbreak Mode. In order to prepare players for his arrival, Treyarch has unveiled new images as well as a full overview of this new large-scale zombie experience.
In just two short days, the new season of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will officially kick off. As usual, this will mark the arrival for players of a slew of new content, including the Outbreak mode, the famous large-scale Zombies mode that had caused so much talk even before being confirmed by the studio. And justly, as the flagship content of this season 2, it has benefited from a more detailed presentation before its release in order to prepare the public for the adventure. For the occasion, a trailer with the first gameplay images was even released.
This new mode will therefore allow four players to cooperate in the heart of Russia, in various regions of the Ural Mountains more precisely, as agents of Requiem. The goal : complete the Operation Threshold mission, which involves getting your hands on Dark Aether, an indispensable resource in the arms race against the Omega group. But to do so, we will have to take risks by exploring large areas populated by zombies., the Urals sector being particularly affected by the epidemic. For indeed, unlike previous modes, here players can take their time and approach their mission however they want.
Different objectives can thus be achieved during the game: defend a data analysis device, escort a safe rover, find and protect Ether crystals, identify and eliminate targets of high importance and finally, logically, resist facing the zombie attack. To note that every goal accomplished gives players an opportunity to escape, whether they are free to accept or not. It is up to them to decide if they want to continue taking risks to earn better rewards. As a reminder, season 2 of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be launched on February 25.
