Double XP Weekend
To sweeten the deal of a free Zombies access week, Treyarch has announced a double XP weekend from January 15th through the 19th. This double XP can be applied in both Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, offering a great opportunity to rapidly earn new weapon attachments and camos for the Zombies and Multiplayer game modes.
Zombies Free Access Week by Platform
Each platform has free access to multiple Zombies game modes, including play on Die Maschine, an extension from the premier CoD: World at War Zombies map. Also included in this free access week is Cranked, a fast-paced game mode where players must kill zombies within a set time limit before they explode.
Onslaught Raid is also free to play exclusively for gamers on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. In the Onslaught game mode, two players must work together to clear zombies from a designated map area before progressing to the next location.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies is free to play from 10AM PST on January 14th through 10AM PST on January 21st. You can play online with friends or strangers through matchmaking during this free access period. After this time, you must purchase the game to continue your gameplay and progression in Zombies.
New Zombies Map Coming Soon
The fun doesn’t end after the Zombies free access week. Treyarch has also teased a new Zombies map, Firebase Z, which comes to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on February 4th.
