Treyarch has announced a new game mode for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that will debut with the Beta.

The new mode is another variant of the originally announced Combined Arms: Domination. Combined Arms mode features larger versions of maps that have a higher player count.

Combined Arms features up to 24 players with a 12v12. The first variant of this mode was introduced in the Alpha with Domination. The mode was 5 flag domination across these larger scale maps.

Now, Treyarch has announced another variation of this: Combined Arms: Assault.

Treyarch says this is “a bigger, badder take on a classic mode that relies on team-based momentum to secure the victory.”

Here’s the details on the mode, straight from Treyarch Blog:

The match gets rolling with two teams of 12 spreading out across the map to fight for control of a central neutral capture zone. Once that objective is captured, the next one opens up deeper into enemy territory. The first team to successfully infiltrate and capture the enemy’s final zone comes out on top.

“Combined Arms: Assault is an exhilarating large-scale experience where both teams are focused on a single moving objective. From charging the radar station in Crossroads on a Snowmobile, to storming the enemy’s ship in Armada, Combined Arms: Assault is where you’ll find some of Black Ops Multiplayer’s most intense and cinematic moments.” – Matt Scronce, Lead Game Designer

By default, teams will battle it out through five capture zones in each map. Once a zone is captured, the match timer will pause, allowing teams to reset and prepare for the next push. The match is won when a team has captured the final zone at the end of the linear progression of objectives. If neither team successfully captures the enemy’s final zone, the round will end, and teams will play a single overtime round with only the central objective in play. The first team to capture the zone will win the round and the match.

The mode will be added into the Beta during the course of the two weekends. More info on exactly when to come.
