Name of Obligation’s Season Two Reloaded mid-season replace is bringing some much-needed adjustments to Black Ops Chilly Warfare. Season Two began on February 25 with a give attention to zombies-themed content material, together with the enjoyable addition of the Zombies “Outbreak” mode. Now we’re already on the midway level, and the newest replace will deliver extra maps, one other large-scale goal mode, and a few high quality tuning to Chilly Warfare’s weapon pool.
Season Two Reloaded is scheduled to launch for Black Ops Chilly Warfare on March 29 at 9PM PT, and Treyarch launched the Street Map for the rest of Season Two right now. A number of the content material is recycled, however the entire additions sound well-planned.
Extra maps are coming to multiplayer, however just one is totally new. “Mansion” is a brand-new 2v2 Gunfight map, set in a mansion in Havana, Cuba.
“Golova” is a brand new addition to multiplayer’s large-scale Fireteam maps, however gamers may already be aware of this location in the event that they’ve dropped into the Zombies Outbreak mode.
“Miami Strike” is a reworked model of Black Ops Chilly Warfare’s present Miami map. This up to date model will deliver the Miami streets into the daytime, moderately than the unique map’s low visibility, nighttime setting. The Miami Strike variant can be going to be smaller, trimming down a number of the outskirts of the unique map. Miami hasn’t been very fashionable since launch, however these adjustments is perhaps precisely what the map wants.
Treyarch additionally introduced a wildly formidable 40-player Hardpoint mode. Historically, Hardpoint is a 6v6 goal mode that requires two groups to combat for management of designated “Hardpoint” areas on the map, incomes factors for the way lengthy they maintain the Hardpoint. This new large-scale Hardpoint could have ten squads of 4 all combating to seize Hardpoint places on Chilly Warfare’s largest maps. Squads will earn one level each second for all teammates inside a Hardpoint, however as a substitute of the conventional rating restrict of 250, the primary group to achieve a whopping 1,000 factors of goal time will win. Personally, I like the large-scale Fireteam modes, so I’m actually excited to see how this can play out.
Lengthy-overdue weapon tuning is lastly coming to Chilly Warfare. December was the final time the weapons have been balanced, and there are a handful of weapons within the recreation that fully outshine the remainder. The tuning adjustments embrace buffs to Krig 6, FFAR 1, and Groza assault rifle class to make them extra viable choices, and there’s a whole lot of tuning being carried out to the submachine weapons as nicely.
The multiplayer replace can even embrace updates to the aggressive League Play mode, the return of the Prop Hunt mode with new maps and props, and a bunch of bug fixes and stability enhancements. Later within the season, gamers can anticipate Gunfight tournaments to be added, a brand new sniper rifle, operators, and extra.
Outbreak mode is getting a number of updates. The big-scale Zombies mode is performed on Chilly Warfare’s large Fireteam maps, and now a nighttime model of the Sanatorium Fireteam map can be added into the combination. A brand new “Safe” goal kind can be being added to Outbreak, which principally requires you to kill zombies in a selected space to siphon their essence. This sounds fairly just like present targets within the mode, however possibly it’ll be extra fascinating than it appears. Probably the most thrilling a part of the Zombies replace is Treyarch mentioning there can be “much more secrets and techniques for gamers to find.” One of many enjoyable elements of diving into the Zombies content material is exploring and uncovering Easter egg surprises.
Season Two Reloaded largely particulars content material on the Chilly Warfare aspect of Name of Obligation, however Warzone can be getting an replace to cut back the general file measurement. As ordinary, gamers might want to obtain a beefy replace, however the total file measurement can be diminished afterwards. The Name of Obligation weblog particulars that the free-to-play Warzone file measurement can be diminished by between 10.9 GB and 14.2 GB, and the Fashionable Warfare/Warzone file measurement can be diminished by between 30.6 GB and 33.6 GB, with this relying in your platform. This Warzone replace will comply with a day after Black Ops Chilly Warfare with a launch of March 30 at 11PM PT.
The highway map for Season Two Reloaded additionally teases one factor for Warzone. A picture of Name of Obligation operators surrounded by the undead reads “The menace rises in Verdansk.” I hope this implies we’re getting extra zombies.
This mid-season replace appears set to deliver some good adjustments and content material to Black Ops Chilly Warfare. On the Warzone aspect of Name of Obligation, I actually hope the replace brings extra pleasure to a really boring zombies “outbreak” occasion. The zombies are nonetheless simply transferring from place to put, as a substitute of really spreading and changing into extra of a menace. I’m hoping one thing thrilling is on the horizon.
