As we near the announcement of the next Call of Duty, Cold War Zombies shows no sign of slowing down as it teases Outbreak Season 5 content.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War put a lot of emphasis on zombies. It delivered a stripped down version that felt more in line with the original World at War Zombies mode. However, Cold War’s Outbreak, which launched back in Season 2, is looking to expand. A bunch of new content will be heading to the mode when Season 5 launches on August 12th.

Call of Duty released a brief trailer ahead of Season 5 teasing what’s to come to Outbreak Mode this season. For those who love to face off against open fields of zombies, new regions, upgrades challenges will arrive with Season 5.


A Season 5 cinematic was released just a few days ago, showcasing its continued story. However, beyond the story, new maps, modes and weapons give players plenty of reason to check out the game. Zombies fans are being spoiled this season after recieving a new maps just last month.

A quick glance at the Season 5 road map reveals that Outbreak’s new region will be titled Collateral. Players will be able to zip about the new region with the latest equipment addition, the grapple gun. Or if you fancy something a little bulkier, the tank is also making its way to Outbreak.

But that’s not the only one-up you’ll have on your enemies. The latest piece of Field Equipment, Tesla Storm, will stun and damage normal enemies, before striking Elite and Special Zombies upon upgrading. 

The content arrives at a troubling time for Call of Duty, as players continue to ditch Warzone for its persistent hacking issues. However, with the upcoming fifth season likely being the second to last before the rumoured Call of Duty Vanguard is released, Call of Duty will hoping to entice players back in. 

Black Ops Cold War Season 5 will kick off on August 12th, so players hoping to finish their battle pass have till then to do so.
