However, after news of a delay on Season 1 to December 16, it appears that Zombies may not be receiving a new map after all. This is some unfortunate news for Black Ops Cold War Zombies players, and there are likely a lot of unhappy users out there.
Black Ops Cold War only launched with one Zombie's map, which was Die Machine. However, it's hard to see a future where Black Ops Cold War Zombies players don't get burnt out on the map before Season 2, if there is no new content added.

It's been teased that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Season 2 will be adding a new Zombies map when it starts. With that in mind, it seems likely that Black Ops Cold War Season 2 will start somewhere between February and March, so Zombies fans can expect a new map around that time.
What the new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies map will entail is anyone's guess. That being said, Trey arch apparently added some new intel to the Die Machine map that may give fans some clues as to what to expect.
Transit has long been rumored to be coming to Black Ops Cold War, having been previously leaked by reputable Call of Duty leakers. For the most part, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War seems to be focusing on putting out original content as opposed to remakes.
Dalton covers the latest breaking news for Game Rant, as well as writes reviews, guide content, and more. The Black Ops Cold War new zombies map is something the Call of Duty community has quickly built up anticipation for within weeks out of the game's launch.
The rumor first started before the game launched, as historically reliable leakers made a post before Trey arch's First Look trailer dropped that revealed the name of Die Machine, the weapon rarity system, perk upgrades and more. Thanks to a glitch found in the Fracture Jaw campaign mission by YouTuber Declan Hillman, the whole Firebase was able to be fully explored, revealing that assets from the Shi No NUMA Zombies map are present in Black Ops Cold War.
Similar to how Die Machine reimagines and expands on the classic Yacht Her Unto ten map, it appears that Firebase Z could include parts of Shi No NUMA as well. Whether you brave it alone, play with friends, or go online to team up with others, battling against a horde of zombies is a lot of fun and throughout the years there have been some incredible versions of it.
Updated by Matthew Wilkinson on April 18th, 2020: The Zombies' mode of Call Of Duty has always proven to be incredibly popular, with every map having some positives and negatives. Anybody who has played Buried will know all too well how scary and creepy this map is, with the haunted house being a terrifying experience that is not really recommended for people who get scared easily.
This map came under some criticism for being a little gimmicky when it was first released, with the game allowing you to play as famous world leaders; John F. Kennedy, Fidel Castro, and Richard Nixon. Some gamers were unable to look past that fact early on, but, once you got to play the Five map, it was a lot of fun, with tight spaces and very few places to hide keeping you on the edge of your toes throughout.
Five also brought a new form of enemy with the Pentagon Thai, who took things to a new level with his attempts to steal your weapons, causing problems for people throughout. It felt like one big game of Clue by taking place in a huge mansion, and COD did a great job of bringing more than just Zombies into things, with vampires and werewolves helping to make this even scarier than normal.
Charles Dance, Kaiser Sutherland, Brian Blessed, and Helena Botham Carter were all featured here, and they added a lot of fun. Inspired by the 1940s New Orleans Jazz scene, the fictional More City was a perfect environment and switched things up for Zombies, going from the traditional bleak colors to something a little more vibrant, which was met with positive and negative feedback.
This is the final map in the series, and, because of that, everything is ramped up to make this very difficult, although it does bring the story arch together satisfyingly that left everyone happy. Her Eisendrache may just take the number one prize in terms of visuals, with this map being absolutely stunning to play through with incredible detail-packed to both interact with and in the background.
The elemental staves added something fresh to the combat, with giant robots walking around the landscape, giving something else to the gamer to think about, with a look to the sky being needed to avoid being crushed. This map was full of story reveals that brought things to an end in a perfect way, mixing emotion and impactful moments with fantastic gameplay and graphics.
If you want a really fun Zombies experience, then Mob of the Dead is probably the perfect choice for you, with a fantastic atmosphere with a gangster feel that also didn't take itself overly seriously. This map did have elements of dark humor which were welcomed, while also having an incredible story that had a real thriller feel with a brilliant payoff that was well worth dedicating some time for.
Taking place on Alcatraz, the location chosen was superb and fit the zombies franchise well, with a hidden Johnny Cash song and the return of the introduction of the Tommy Gun, this map had it all. This was the starting point for Zombies, with this being a surprise mini-game that people weren't aware of until they unlocked it, which took place after players completed the World at War's main solo campaign.
Once you had made your way through the game you actually bought, you were given a huge bonus of the Yacht Her Unto ten map, which provided an incredible experience that nobody had prepared for. While it still has the dark theme that would be expected from the game, it also has some amazingly vibrant neon lights that give the map a pop of color.
The whole map takes place in a zombie infected amusement park with rides blaring around and a hilarious MC who keeps things entertaining throughout. Since Her Raise originally debuted within World at War, Trey arch has remastered the map on two more occasions, proving it is a major hit for the franchise, and that is why it ranks so highly on this list.
The brilliance of this map was that it had a genuinely eerie and strange feel to it, with the theater being the main hub, with deserted and ripped apart chairs, cobwebs everywhere, and a dark moody atmosphere. A topographic map shows the elevation data for a certain part of the earth, in addition to other physical and man-made features.
Pirate Airship is a small map for passing under the Left 2 Mine mod. On the Laboratory: Outbreak map, you have to shoot zombies in a huge cubic room consisting of several floors.
Zombie Apocalypse II: Hell’s Fury is a fairly large-scale map with an interesting plot. Here you need to fight off the night invasions of zombies in a small town.
Laboratory: Outbreak Map (for Left 2 Mine) 385 And while the agency’s vows to investigate and quarantine an infection provide some comfort, it’s important to have a secure refuge in mind for the worst case scenario.
The complex was outfitted with offices, laundries, a hospital, cafeterias, kitchens, the second largest phone exchange in Britain, and a television studio, but none of these amenities were ever used. Pros: Assuming you could gather enough supplies (food, water, and fuel for electricity), waiting out a zombie apocalypse in an underground city would be one of the safest and most sensible strategies.
Another good zombie -evading strategy is to assume an elevated position, ideally with a rifle and a 360 degree view of the surrounding area. Pros: Being high above the ground provides a huge tactical advantage, and Lawson Tower comes complete with a crow’s nest and an observation deck.
Annette Black/Atlas Obscure Alcatraz has served many purposes since Julian Workman, the island’s first recorded owner, erected a lighthouse there in 1846: It was the base for the San Francisco arsenal during the civil war, famously housed military and federal prisoners, and today is a popular tourist attraction. With its ample living space, high walls, and island geography, it’s a natural choice for a survivor stronghold during a zombie apocalypse.
Pros: Well fortified, surrounded by water, with an infamously secure fortress, Alcatraz comes equipped with a wide range of zombie defenses. Its proximity to San Francisco (it’s just 1.5 miles offshore) makes it a convenient rallying point for the surviving populace, but it’s also a liability: the island could easily be inundated or compromised.
And if a zombie outbreak did occur on the island, you’d be trapped on Alcatraz with a bunch of flesh-eating undead, which sounds like the plot of the scariest horror movie ever. B4bees/CC BY 2.0 One hundred feet below a charming old farmhouse in Scotland is a tunnel that leads to a 24,000 square-foot bunker that was built to shelter top government officials in case of a nuclear strike.
Today it is a Cold War museum that houses a collection of military vehicles and a number of questionably accurate historical artifacts. Only a handful survived–a few lucky sailors in boats off the coast, and a local drunk who had been thrown in jail the night before: Luger Salaries.
His solitary confinement cell, a stone structure built partially into the ground, saved his life from scalding volcanic gasses and ash. Propped up on stilts high above the waterline and decommissioned in the 1950s, these structures are in serious disrepair, but could provide an almost perfect strategic refuge in the event of a zombie outbreak.
In their current state, entering the sea forts is prohibited and possibly unsafe, but they could easily be fortified to provide protection and seclusion. Michelle Denmark/Atlas Obscure Carved into the sandstone along Highway 191 in Moab, Utah, this humbly named dwelling is actually a luxurious 5,000 square-foot home, complete with 14 rooms, a fireplace, and a relaxing bathtub.
Pros: At only 5,000 square feet, this abode is much smaller than many government-built bunkers, which makes it easier to secure and well suited to a small band of survivors. The Evans have been the gatekeepers of the Caucasus Mountains since the Bronze Age, when their ancestors battled to keep countless invading armies out.
The threat of invasion never abated, and today their heavily fortified tower style homes still stand in the hilly landscape of present-day Georgia. The architectural formula is simple, but it works: every home in the Anti villages is surrounded with a protective wall and a lookout tower, providing a perfect tactical combination of observation and defense.
Pros: Isolation is an important feature of any hideout, and the Korea Tribe excels in this area: it was completely removed from the outside world until first contacted by Dutch missionaries in the 1970s.
