Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is running a free week with free content from both its multiplayer and Zombies modes.
This free week of play starts right now and lasts until March 4th at 10am PT. Here’s what you can play without paying a dime—though you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of download space.
The free week also coincides with the start of the new Outbreak Event, which takes place in both the new Outbreak experience in Black Ops Cold War as well as the zombie-infested free-to-play Warzone. Yes, zombies have made their way to Verdansk.
For the next week, players on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X can play the following multiplayer modes:
- Apocalypse 24/7 — this is the new Season 2 jungle map and it’s actually quite a lot of fun from what I’ve played so far. The playlist will include TDM, Kill Confirmed, Domination, and Hardpoint.
- Gun Game — A class mode, Gun Game was just added in Season 2. It’s a free-for-all mode where players work through a series of weapons that change whenever you get a kill. Whoever gets the final kill with the last weapon wins.
- Gunfight Blueprints — A really fun, fast-paced 2v2 mode with no Scorestreaks that pits two teams of two against each other in short rounds on small maps. Whoever gets to six wins first is the victor.
- Team Deathmatch and Domination have their own separate playlists as well as a Nuketown 24/7 playlist.
- 40-player multi-team playlist
- The big one here is Outbreak, Black Ops Cold War’s massive, open-world Zombies survival mode that just launched today. It’s free for everyone for an entire week. The Outbreak event lasts two weeks.
- Onslaught is another Zombies wave-based mode that’s free for PlayStation gamers for the next week.
That’s everything, which is actually quite a bit. The other cool thing about Warzone and Black Ops Cold War is that each season players get new maps and weapons plus modes and other new content completely free. The only way to spend money is on the Battle Pass or in the Item Shop. This was how last year’s Modern Warfare did things as well, and it means that all players have access to the same maps, greatly reducing fragmentation in the community.
