Call of Duty: Vanguard launches in just few short weeks, but Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is still getting one last big infusion of content when Season 6, “The Final Showdown” launches next week. While Cold War will likely still get some smaller updates, and CoD: Warzone will obviously still be supported, this is almost certainly the last major Cold War/Warzone combined season.
Season 6 includes the last chapter for CoD: Black Ops Cold War Zombies, a couple new MP maps and operators, a Halloween seasonal event, and some more changes for Verdansk that strongly hint at the new WWII-themed map coming after the launch of CoD: Vanguard. You can check out a quick gameplay trailer for Season 6, below.
Scroll on down for a rundown of all the content included in CoD: Black Ops Cold War/Warzone Season 6:
CoD: Black Ops Cold War
New Multiplayer Maps
- Deprogram (6v6, Launch) – Each part of this map is a fragment of Adler’s memories, stitched together to form one of the most unique map experiences ever seen in Call of Duty. The Red Doors found throughout Deprogram can be used to quickly traverse the map, which may lead to power positions over objectives or be used for four-dimensional plays that can help you outsmart opponents.
- Amerika (6v6, Launch) – Take the war to a Soviet recreation of an American Main Street in Season Six’s next 6v6 map, Amerika.

Maneuver through these buildings for close-quarter battles, and watch out for long-range weaponry that is sure to lock down the block.

Don’t forget to capture that Overtime flag if your opponent is still standing during a round of Gunfight!
