Warzone and Cold War Season 5 Reloaded release time, update pre-load and patch notes NEWS


Call of Duty‘s mid-season update is about to be released for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.

In what’s turning out to be a huge week for Call of Duty, Season 5 Reloaded has a September 9 release date and a 5am BST start time for fans living in the UK.

Fortunately, with an update this size, Activision is giving some players the chance to download the new content early.

The Black Ops Cold War update will be available to download on September 8 at 5am BST UK time. In fact, some PlayStation users are able to download the patch now.

Pre-loading the content ahead of time means you won’t have to wait to start playing the moment the content launches.

Sadly, the same isn’t true for Warzone fans, who will have to wait until the start of the season to download and install the new update.

While full patch notes will be revealed soon, Activision has already given fans a pretty good idea about what to expect.

This includes the reimagined Zoo map, which was first seen as part of the Black Ops Escalation Pack all the way back in 2011.

Zoo is described as a medium-sized map specifically designed for 6v6 game modes in Black Ops Cold War.

The action takes place in the zoo’s main animal exhibit and park area, as well as the souvenir shop. You can even hop on the monorail to get the jump on the enemies below.

Fans will also be pleased to hear that Demolition is once again returning the Black Ops Cold War.

The returning multiplauyer mode sees one team of attackers attempt to destroy a pair of bombsites while defenders try to prevent the detonations.

“All-out chaos ensues when time is extended after the first bomb site is destroyed, and both teams have a chance to play offense and defense before the match ends,” Activision explains.

“If there is a tie, expect even more madness: a single neutral bomb site becomes active, with the first team to detonate it winning the match.”

As for Warzone, fans can take part in a couple of new game modes, as Clash and Iron Trials ’84 make an appearance.

Iron Trials is described as the “toughest Battle Royale mode to ever come to Verdansk”.

Players can wave goodbye to free loadout drops, while everything from time to kill, weapons, Perks, and Equipment viability has been altered to make things more difficult.

Finally, and perhaps most exciting of all, is the appearance of two new Operators to the item shop.

This includes special agent Jason Hudson, as well as comic book hero Judge Dredd. Both will be available in-season.
