Updated January 7 patch notes on the Treyarch blog confirms some details about the drop in Cold War midseason content. One of the main introductions is a new Fireteam map called Sanatorium. This map will complete a new Fireteam mode called Dropkick, a 6v6 battle where players must “fight for control of the nuclear codes”.
Elsewhere, Zombie players can take advantage of changes to Cranked Mode, where “every zombie killed resets the countdown until you disappear.” In the PlayStation-exclusive Onslaught mode, the Black Ops 2 map raid has been added to the pool, along with new Dark Aether info players can collect when fighting the Horde.
