Vanguard and Warzone Pacific Season 3 is almost here, but Black Ops Cold War players haven’t been left behind. Many think of Cold War’s Zombies as one of the best in recent years, and there’s more content on the way.

Outbreak quickly became a fan-favorite mode, and the April 25 update brings new enemies to the mode as well as the Outbreak Collapse LTM.

In Outbreak Collapse, “Players must outlast increasingly intense waves for 10 minutes before attempting to exfil from a single Region.” The difficulty will increase every two minutes before players need to fight their way to “the exfil point at the farthest position from your squad.”

On top of that, the Abomination enemy has been added to Outbreak and players will now face the HVT Abomination in the Eliminate Objective.
