Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Trailer Reveals New Warzone Map

by in Call of Duty | Dec, 8th 2020

 If you are hyped for the first season of content for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, you may want to check out the trailer that was just released today. To tie players over until the new season drops over a week from now, the Black Ops Cold War Season 1 trailer teases a ton of info for it. 

Cold War Season 1 Trailer Released

The short cinematic trailer shows no gameplay whatsoever, but it reveals the locations and people you will likely meet in the upcoming season. To help you out, we have our full recap of the Black Ops Cold War Season 1 trailer right here so you can know what you just saw. 

The trailer focuses heavily on the conflict between the new character Stitch, who is an ex-KGB leader, and the fan-favorite leading character from the singleplayer campaign: Russell Adler. It seems that Adler tortured the operative at some point and his goal in life is to get revenge for it. 

It doesn’t necessarily spoil the singleplayer campaign’s content directly, so you should be free to watch it without fear of that happening. Much of the trailer focuses on Stitch himself and the backstory for him, including who he is, what he has done, and how he affects the Call of Duty lore. 

Interestingly enough, it seems that this new character, Stitch, is the person behind the well-known Nova 6 gas that has been featured quite a lot throughout the Black Ops sub-series of Call of Duty. This is an interesting point that comes up a couple of times in the trailer. 

Alcatraz Comes Back in Season 1

Nova 6 gas could be to blame for what is going on in the Call of Duty Warzone battle royale game where the Verdansk map is met with some gas if you go outside of the safe zone. And it likely has to do with the new battle royale map teased in the Black Ops Cold War Season 1 trailer.

It looks like a new battle royale map is coming to Warzone not even a full year after its release. Unfortunately, it does look like this new map will not be quite what we expected it to be. Stitch talks in the trailer about visiting the Rebirth Island, which is likely to be the name of the new battle royale map. 

The Rebirth Island will look very familiar to anyone who has played Black Ops 4 or Call of Duty Mobile recently. It looks exactly like Alcatraz Island and is likely the same place with a different name. This all but confirms that Alcatraz, or Rebirth Island, in this case, will be the new battle royale map in Warzone. 

This will make it only the second new map for the very popular and successful game to date, which we anticipated for the new season. However, we didn’t expect the new island to remake the Alcatraz island from the Blackout portion of Black Ops 4. 

Rebirth Island Will Likely Be the New Warzone Map

That island is rather small compared to most battle royale maps and features a very different survival game style on a smaller scale. We expected something more Verdansk-like that features some online multiplayer locations like Crossroads and others in a massive map, perhaps located in Russia or somewhere nearby.

But it looks like that won’t be the case for now as the new Warzone map will likely be on a smaller scale than Verdansk. That is great for those players who like that smaller gameplay style when it comes to battle royale. But there is another possibility for Rebirth Island.

It is no doubt a location for Warzone, but there is potentially a chance that it will also be a multiplayer map, which we hope is the case. It would be a great Fireteam or Combined Arms map, given its more extensive than normal multiplayer size, so here’s hoping that does happen, too. 

New Jersey Mall Map Also Revealed

This is possibly a new multiplayer map for Black Ops Cold War as well because a new multiplayer map is teased later in the Black Ops Cold War Season 1 trailer. Adler visits a mall in New Jersey with his squad and meets up with Stitch there.

This indoor mall will likely be the next brand new map for the game besides the returning Raid map teased alongside the first season’s delay. Alongside that, Stitch will probably be the new operator that you can unlock in Season 1 for one faction.

We will have to wait a little longer to see what will come with Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone since it was delayed recently. It was initially supposed to come out this week on Dec. 10 but was recently delayed to next week almost a week later on Dec. 16. 

Besides the new stuff that was announced today in this Season 1 trailer, we already know that the Raid map is coming soon to the game, there will be new weapons to collect, and the seasonal prestige system. The game will also kick off its shared progression between Warzone and Cold War.

Both games will use the same battle pass. Warzone will also get some special Black Ops Cold War weapons to use in that battle royale game alongside Modern Warfare arsenal.
