Black Ops Cold War Season 6 Release Date Revealed
Call of Duty Warzone and Black Ops Cold War has one last season to collaborate on, and it is coming out very soon. The final season of the two games has been officially teased with the recently announced Black Ops Cold War Season 6 release date.
Cold War Season 6 Release Date Revealed
The Call of Duty Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Season 6 release date is here. It is rapidly approaching, with new content for both titles on the way. A reveal trailer helps with the release date announcement, giving us a glimpse at the cinematics of this next story section.
As you may know, the past five seasons of DLC for Cold War and Warzone have been story-focused, at least in the cinematics, furthering the plot from the main singleplayer campaign of Cold War in which Adler and the gang are searching for Perseus to take them down once and for all.
This will continue in the new season, with the Black Ops Cold War Season 6 release date trailer revealing more info about what will happen in the finale of the Cold War storyline. Alongside this trailer, we finally got information about when the next season will be dropping for the game.
The Black Ops Cold War Season 6 release date is currently set to happen on Thursday, October 7, which is just about a week away at the time of this announcement. On that day, players will receive much of what could be the final batch of content for Black Ops Cold War, so it is an exciting moment. That also means that players have one week left to finish up the current season 5 content.
What the Reveal Trailer Shows
As for what that content will include, it is currently unknown, at least for Cold War, outside of Zombies. Interestingly enough, that is because the Black Ops Cold War Season 6 release date reveal trailer showed off only moments on the Verdansk map in Warzone.
In the reveal trailer, we can see it start much like a certain famous mission in the original Black Ops with Adler taking the place of Alex Mason by sitting in a chair and being drugged and tortured by Perseus to brainwash him.
This is the major debut of one of the Black Ops fan-favorite characters. We see glimpses of the brainwashing and what may or may not have happened during the time of his imprisonment, leading to Alex Mason coming in to save the day. He rescues Adler just in time.
However, at the same time, we can see that Perseus collaborator, Stitch, and others trying to defuse bombs that Adler planted during his unfortunate time on the dark side. However, not all of the bombs are defused in time, leading to a massive explosion on Verdansk.
This explosion can be seen in the trailer, revealing that the Verdansk Stadium and Downtown sectors were destroyed in the wake of these explosions. This is a massive event and one that is not likely being teased for nothing, ending with the final confrontation between Stitch and Adler.
Season 6 Will Likely Change Verdansk Considerably
Though the Black Ops Cold War Season 6 release date trailer does not show off much of what will happen in Verdansk with these events, it does tease that we may not see the Stadium and/or the Downtown area again in the new season, or at least not in the forms that we currently know them.
We could likely have some new points of interest that will take over the Downtown and Stadium areas or have destroyed wreckage versions of both in the new season. This is exciting news for battle royale fans out there as it means that we could see a drastic overhaul of perhaps the most important area of Verdansk in Season 6.
Furthermore, we also receive confirmation that the new season of both games will feature Alex Mason making his Cold War debut as one of the playable operator skins that you can pick up. We would not be surprised if he is the featured one, being the tier one reward for players who purchase the paid version of the battle pass.
For the most part, many of the seasons have been focusing on introducing operators working on the side of Perseus, but this could be a final season that brings it back to the good guys with the ability to play as Alex Mason finally.
We will also likely get a jam-packed final Season 6 battle pass since this is the last main season connecting Cold War and Warzone. We expect some new weapons, other new operator skins, blueprints, and others main cosmetic items to collect.
Final Cold War Zombies Map Has Been Announced
Lastly, we know about the new season because it will also include the final round-based Zombies map for Cold War. The fourth and final one, Forsaken, has been revealed by Treyarch and will conclude the new storyline that began with this game.
Not much is known about Forsaken at this time other than it will be the last Zombies map for Black Ops Cold War. Given how good Mauer der Toten was, it sets the bar for what it is expected to be the grand finale for the fan-favorite mode in this title.
Presumably, whatever happens in Forsaken will set the stage for the storyline continuation in the next Call of Duty game, Vanguard, set to release on November 5, 2021. Before then, players will have one month to enjoy the final season connecting Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
