Play Season Three for free starting April 23 in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The hunt for Special Agent Russell Adler continues, while Stitch moves onto the next phase of his plan. The situation is critical and we’re calling on all Operators to report for duty in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

Free Access begins just after the launch of Season Three, starting on Friday, April 23 at 10 am PT through Wednesday, April 28 at 10 am PT. Players can jump into a large selection of Multiplayer and Outbreak content as part of Free Access. PC players should expect Free Access later today, on April 23.

Tell your friends and squad up! This is the perfect opportunity to try out plenty of the new Season Three content in Black Ops Cold War, including new maps, playlists, weapons, and more.

Download Black Ops Cold War during Free Access on your preferred platform’s digital store. Here’s what’s included:



Nuketown 24/7, Multi-Team Moshpit, Face Off and More

We’re throwing open the doors for Free Access players to experience everything Multiplayer has to offer, from the large scale Multi-Team Moshpit to the classic Nuketown 24/7 grind. Jump into the intensity of 3v3 Faceoff with some friends, or ease into the old standards Team Deathmatch and Domination.

Free Access also includes the just-added Yamantau and Diesel Multiplayer maps. Fight through the crumbled remains of a Soviet observatory on snowy Mt. Yamantau, and battle it out in 6v6 and 2v2 on Diesel, featuring a deserted gas station in the New Mexico desert. Load up Yamantau 24/7 while you’re at it and master the new map.

Sticks and Stones

The classic party mode is back and making its debut in Black Ops Cold War. Available during Free Access, this game mode equips every Operator with the same loadout: a crossbow, Ballistic Knife, and Tomahawk. Eliminate enemies with the Tomahawk to bankrupt their score to zero.

In this free-for-all, it’s every Operator for themselves. Sticks and Stones supports a variety of maps, including the new Season Three 6v6 maps. Watch out for those Tomahawks flying by.




All of the new Outbreak content will be open to play in Zombies, too. In Outbreak, up to four Requiem agents are tasked with exploring massive regions of the Ural Mountains while fighting off the undead. Work together to complete dangerous experiments and other objectives that are sure to lead to more loot, new enemies, and the next daunting Dark Aether portal.

Trek through Duga, the latest Outbreak region just added in Season Three, and speed to your next objective in the new Cargo Truck and high-speed Fast Attack Vehicle (FAV). Get to the target and take on the horde with the new Toxic Growth Field Upgrade, slowing the movement speed of entangled enemies while inflicting toxic damage.
