Treyarch has revealed the latest iteration of its popular Call of Duty Zombies mode.
Set for release as part of Black Ops Cold War on November 13, “Die Maschine” is billed as the next Zombies chapter featuring a new story led by fresh characters in a different time period.
Traditional Zombies elements return in the form of four-person co-op, round-based survival, Perks, the Pack-a-Punch machine, Wall Buys, and the Mystery Box.
But progression and loadouts have been unified across Black Ops Cold War, meaning players can use weapons, equipment and Scorestreaks across all modes including Zombies, which will also be tied to the game’s Battle Pass.
For the first time players will be able to start Zombies matches with weapons they’ve unlocked and upgraded rather than the standard starter pistol.
And a new optional exfiltration system means the game doesn’t have to end in death as has previously been the case.
In another series first, Treyarch has confirmed that post-launch content will be free, meaning new maps will be accessible to all players.
Cold War is described as “the direct sequel to the original” Black Ops. Its campaign, which is being developed by Raven Software, will take place during the 1980s and see players battle alongside Woods, Mason and Hudson in East Berlin, Vietnam, Turkey, Soviet KGB headquarters and more.
Activision unveiled Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer mode earlier this month before launching a PS4 exclusive alpha test.
