Sony PlayStation has announced the PlayStation exclusive content for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
The exclusive PlayStation content is a brand new Zombies mode is called ‘Zombies Onslaught.’
Here’s the reveal trailer for this mode, posted by PlayStation:
Warning. Containment Breach. Dark Aether anomalies have infested familiar locations across the globe with hordes of the undead in an all new Zombies experience – Onslaught. Grab a teammate in this 2-player co-operative experience and fight off wave after increasingly difficult wave of zombies. You have one goal… survive. Fight hard enough and you’ll reap exclusive rewards. Experience Onslaught first on PlayStation. Not available on other platforms until Nov 1. 2021.
Onslaught Mode Overview:
In Zombies Onslaught, you and one other Operator will deploy to one of several locations derived from various Multiplayer maps with your custom loadouts. These are the very same loadouts you’ll carry into traditional Zombies and Multiplayer, complete with your preferred primary weapon, whether it be an LMG, heavy-hitting sniper rifle, or other fully kitted-out tool for zombie destruction.
Once you drop in, the onslaught begins; the Dark Aether Orb will confine your duo to a specific space on the map, where the undead will begin spawning in. Killing these zombies will power the Orb. Kill enough Zombies and the Orb will move. While you’re inside the Orb, you won’t take Dark Aether damage from outside the specific map zone the Orb protects, helping keep players alive as they fight increasingly difficult undead enemies, with each “surge” bringing more resilient, faster and deadlier zombies.
As the Orb gains power and you clear out more enemies, expect to stay on the move as the safe area shifts to different areas around the map, forcing you to change strategies on the fly while fending off the undying horde.
Surges can also include Elite enemies, more powerful adversaries compared to the regular zombified masses. However, don’t count them as cannon fodder: the restricted area can bring them within arm’s length, which is all they need to bring you and your duo down.
For the sake of scoring, Elites should be your primary target, as you’ll receive either a Bronze, Silver, or Gold ranking based on the number of Elites you and your partner can defeat.
By achieving a specific rank, you will unlock useful rewards for use across Zombies and Multiplayer. Each season, new maps and rewards will be introduced for PS4 and PS5 players.
The Zombies Onslaught will be timed exclusive until November 1, 2021 .
The overall Zombies experience, including the main storyline maps, will be on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
Activision x PlayStation
Activision and PlayStation have continued their partnership for Call of Duty since 2015, and has changed over the years. It started off as giving PlayStation players DLC first, then moving to all new post launch content first.
In 2019, the deal changed to allow all post launch maps & modes to release simultaneously on all platforms, but gave PlayStation players timed exclusive content, including Modern Warfare’s Survival mode, for one year.
