The newest Call of Duty trailer reveals a brand new zombies map, Mauer Der Toten, scheduled to be a part of Black Ops Cold War’s midseason update.
Fans of the popular zombies mode for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War received a special treat with the recent release of a new trailer. The trailer features a brand new map, Mauer Der Toten, which sees players returning to Berlin to fight the onslaught of zombie hordes. The newest zombies map will be available as a free update on July 15 as part of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War mid-season update.
The zombies mode has been a ubiquitous part of the Call of Duty experience going all the way back to 2008’s Call of Duty: World at War. In recent installments of the series, though, the mode has become increasingly more intertwined with the multiplayer and battle royale experience in Call of Duty. For instance, the recent Warzone nuclear event saw the Verdansk map being nuked in response to the zombies incursion. The resulting fallout of this nuke was a brand new Warzone map that brought players back to 1984 and introduced new operators based on 80s action movies. For the upcoming midseason update, though, it’s the zombies mode that will see its map reshaped, as a new trailer revealed.
The trailer, posted on the official Call of Duty Youtube channel, sees the player characters dropped into a Berlin that is overrun by zombies, many sporting the Nazi uniforms in a nod back to the original “Nazi Zombies” mode from World at War. However, this installment is clearly not taking players back in time like Warzone‘s Verdansk ’84 map did. The trailer features a cyborg ally named Klaus, other robots who may or may not be able to assist the player in surviving the undead, futuristic ray guns, and modern weapons.
The map appears to quite sizeable, with plenty of verticality that players can use to either get a vantage point or maneuver to evade the zombies. Points of interest shown include the rooftops of several ruined buildings, a large town square, several smaller streets, and an underground subway train. In the trailer, there also appears to be a zombie that forms a chain with others nearby. Some have speculated this zombie could be harnessing the Dark Aether in order to power up its zombie allies. Some fans also caught what appears to be the Mule Kick perk, which allows players to equip a third weapon.
Mauer Der Toten will be the fourth zombies map to be released with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and the first since Firebase Z, which was released in February. Five months may seem like a long time to go between major updates for zombies fans, but it is better late than never. And luckily, with this new trailer, zombies fans will not have to wait long to explore Mauer Der Toten.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Last-Gen.
