Published

on

Summary

  • Season Five launches with new Multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone content, including the new Double Agent mode, an investigative Multiplayer experience full of sabotage and deceit.
  • Step up your fight against the undead horde with new Zombies content like the new Death Perception Perk-a-Cola, the Tesla Storm Field Upgrade, and the Flamethrower.
  • Warzone gets its first exclusive Perks: Combat Scout and Tempered. Plus, compete in 50v50 combat in Clash and fight your way out of the new Rush Gulag.

With the Jumpseat satellites successfully taken out of commission, the Warsaw Pact is free to enact their plan – a broadcast of the mind-altering Numbers Program. Chaos descends as formerly friendly operators begin to turn on each other. To make matters worse, there’s a spy in our midst.

Let’s hope you’re prepared. Season Five of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is available now for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Read on for the full briefing.

New Multiplayer Mode: Double Agent

Season Five introduces Double Agent, a brand-new investigative Multiplayer experience. In match, multiple players are assigned as Double Agents who must sabotage the mission. Expose the traitors before they wipe out the investigating team.

It starts with up to 10 Operators who are assigned one of three roles:

  • Double Agents: Eliminate everyone else or successfully set off explosive charges around the map.
  • The Investigator: Use clues to target suspected Double Agents as Wanted.
  • Operators: Work together to eliminate the Double Agents before it’s too late.

Operators will receive their roles and may choose to employ a variety of weapons and skills to carry out their orders, including powerful items like Gas Mines, Counter Spy Planes and the Combat Bow.

Demolition Returns

Launching later in Season Five, the fan-favorite Demolition Multiplayer mode makes its Black Ops Cold War debut. The attacking team must detonate a pair of bombsites while the defending team must do all they can to run out the timer before that happens. In Demolition, respawns are active. Prepare for chaos.

Four New Weapons

Dominate your enemies with four new Season Five weapons:

  • EM2 Assault Rifle (Launch Week) – A well-rounded full-auto assault rifle featuring a built in low-optic zoom. Get it at Tier 15 of the Season Five Battle Pass.
  • TEC 9 SMG (Launch Week) – A semi-auto SMG with improved accuracy at long ranges, low recoil, and a slower fire rate. Unlock it at Tier 31 of the Season Five Battle Pass.

Unlock two more weapons — the Cane melee weapon and Marshal pistol — by completing in-game challenges or by purchasing their corresponding bundles in the Store when they arrive later in the Season.

Five Additional Multiplayer Maps

  • Echelon (6v6, Launch Week): Set in Teufelsberg – Devil’s Mountain – in West Germany, this brand-new map sees Operators fighting through the rain and ash in the aftermath of Perseus’ latest operation.
  • Slums (6v6, Launch Week): First introduced in Black Ops II, Slums features a classic three-lane layout set deep in Panama City. Battle in the side streets and around the central fountain.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone
  • Showroom (2v2/3v3, Launch Week): Duke it out around retail displays and kiosks in this small-sized map built for Gunfight and Face Off. To be featured in an upcoming Gunfight Tournament.
  • Drive-In (6v6, In-Season): A cult classic from the original Black Ops, Drive-In returns in time for its 10-year anniversary as part of 2011’s Annihilation Map Pack. Set in an abandoned Midwest drive-in theater, this map features hot zones for every weapon type.
  • Zoo (6v6, In-Season): Another Black Ops classic, Zoo takes Operators through bear pits and aquariums, including a monorail offering a great vantage point over the action below.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

New Scorestreak: Flamethrower

Torch the opposition with the Flamethrower, a new low-cost Scorestreak that shoots a steady gout of flame, immolating enemies in range. Use it to boost your score toward higher-cost Scorestreaks, so long as you control its deadly blaze.

New Zombies Perk, Field Upgrade,  and Support Weapon

Chug the new Death Perception Perk-a-Cola to see obscured enemies more clearly by giving them a bright outline. Spend Aetherium Crystals to bolster its abilities even further, all the way up to Skill Tier V.

Equip the new Tesla Storm Field Upgrade to summon lightning bolts between you and your allies, stunning and damaging enemies caught in its path. Upgrade the ability to stun more powerful enemies and to boost your squad’s movement speed.

Wield the new Flamethrower against the undead as an additional Support Weapon to help your squad in a sticky situation or whenever a bit of extra firepower is needed most when attempting an Exfil.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

New Outbreak Region: Collateral

The Dark Aether continues to spread, with a new Outbreak Zone appearing in the Algerian Desert. Fight the undead around the region’s natural rock structures, a de-orbited satellite, and oil drills in this massive new area.

New Outbreak Objective, Vehicle, and Equipment

Season Five features a new Outbreak objective called Transport. In this vehicle-focused task, players must keep a drivable Requiem machine in one piece while under constant attack.

Spotted an Orda on the horizon? Jump into the new Tank vehicle, featuring a powerful cannon and mounted turret for taking on even the toughest zombies.

Craft the new Grapple Gun for faster movement throughout the Outbreak Zone, and expect even more Zombies content in Season Five, including the new “Ikari EggXit” bonus map in Dead Ops Arcade 3 and additional Dark Aether story Intel across Outbreak.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

New Warzone Perks, Points of Interest, Gulag and More

New Perks: Combat Scout and Tempered

For the first time ever, Warzone receives two exclusive Perks, each with their own benefits that can drastically change how you choose your Loadouts.

With Combat Scout, Operators receive a burst of in-field intel, as damaging an enemy briefly highlights them in bright orange and automatically pings them. Strengthen your armor using Tempered, improving its damage resistance at the cost of two armor plate carrying slots.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

New POIs: Mobile Broadcast Stations

Perseus allies have rolled out a network of Mobile Broadcast Stations all over Verdansk. These locations change from match to match, so keep your eyes open and head over when you see one for the chance to get more intel and earn new rewards.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

New Gulag: Rush

Comprised of the main paintball arena, the Rush Gulag should feel right at home for players who have been diving into this Black Ops Cod War Multiplayer map introduced in Season Four Reloaded. Get your practice in now before Rush arrives in the Gulag.

New Mode and Event

Prepare for 50v50 combat as Clash comes to Warzone. A spiritual successor to Warzone Rumble, Clash provides teams with unlimited respawns in a deathmatch to 200 points. Watch out for Contracts and public events that can turn the tide of battle.

Later in Season Five, expect the next step in the evolution of the mysterious Red Doors. Beware, as their increased volatility has resulted in sending Operators to new locations.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

New Battle Pass, Operators, and More

Season Five brings all this and more with a new Battle Pass, three new playable operators — Kitsune, Stryker, and Hudson — new Prestige levels, new Season challenges in Multiplayer and Zombies, and more. And new to Season Five, players can unlock an additional exclusive Kitsune Operator Skin with the purchase of the Battle Pass Bundle at the start of the season.

The Microsoft Flight Simulator Game of the Year (GOTY) Standard Edition celebrates all the positive feedback, reviews and awards garnered, but it is also a “Thank You” to our fans – new and old – that have made Microsoft Flight Simulator such a phenomenon. The Microsoft Flight Simulator Standard Game of the Year Edition includes 25 highly detailed planes with unique flight models and 38 hand-crafted airports.

This enhanced edition introduces simmers to five all-new aircraft, eight new handcrafted airports, six new Discovery Flights, new tutorials, and updates to the weather system

The five new handcrafted aircraft in Microsoft Flight Simulator include:
• Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet: Our first military jet and a highly requested feature from the community. The Top Gun: Maverick expansion will release with the movie next Spring, but we wanted simmers to have the opportunity to test their need for speed this holiday.
• VoloCity: We partnered with well-known German company Volocopter, which is working on an eVTOL called “VoloCity”, a vision for an urban air taxi. We worked closely with the Volocopter engineering team to develop an authentic version of the prototype aircraft for the simulator. This is our first aircraft that can perform pinpoint landings and is a teaser of what you can look forward to in 2022 when we intend to launch helicopters in the sim.
• Pilatus PC-6 Porter: This legendary short takeoff and landing (STOL) utility aircraft is a highly versatile plane from Switzerland and comes with several cockpits, cabins, and landing gear variations. It is the result of our close collaboration with the manufacturer and the development efforts by famed developers Hans Hartmann and Alexander Metzger resulted in a great and fun new aircraft with exception capabilities in the simulator.
• CubCrafters NX Cub: Yakima-based CubCrafters recently introduced a nosewheel option for their flagship CC-19 XCub Aircraft, popularly called the NX Cub, which we are pleased to introduce to the flight sim audience to further enhance our bush flying and off airport options.
• Aviat Pitts Special S1S: One of our most popular planes gets a single-seat option with the release of this aircraft.

New Airports – We are adding eight handcrafted airports in Central Europe and the United States:
• Germany
o Leipzig/Halle Airport (EDDP)
o Allgäu Airport Memmingen (EDJA)
o Kassel Airport (EDVK)
•Switzerland
o Lugano Airport (LSZA)
o Zurich Airport (LSZH)
o Luzern-Beromunster Airport (LSZO)
•United States
o Patrick Space Force Base (KCOF)
o Marine Corps Air Station Miramar (KNKX)

The Game of the Year release is adding information about 545 previously missing airports in the United States.

New Missions -Based on the popularity of the recently introduced Discovery Flights, we are adding an additional six locations (Helsinki, Freiburg im Breisgau, Mecca, Monument Valley, Singapore, and Mount Cook) to this popular series.

New Tutorials – To further expand the onboarding experience, we are adding 14 new tutorials, introducing simmers to Bush flying (in an Icon A5) and IFR (in a Cessna 172).

New Features – We are also pleased to introduce several highly requested features by the community: an updated weather system, early access to DX12, and a dev mode replay system.

New Photogrammetry Cities – As part of our ongoing collaboration with Bing Maps, we are pleased to add a number of new photogrammetry cities: Helsinki (Finland), Freiburg im Breisgau (Germany), Brighton, Derby, Eastbourne, Newcastle, and Nottingham (UK) and Utrecht (Netherlands).

Microsoft Flight Simulator Standard Game of the Year Edition will be available as a free update for owners on PC and Xbox Series X|S. For new users, the GOTY Standard Edition is the perfect entry point to flight simming as it offers an even richer experience, and it will be the item they purchase as we are retiring the original. Invite your friends to experience the wonders of flight. The sky is calling!
