Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's Zombies Onslaught mode is a PS4 and PS5 timed-exclusive

By Sean Carey,
Activision and Sony have announced that PS4 and PS5 players will get access to a special exclusive Zombies mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The mode will be exclusive to Sony's console for a full year before coming to Xbox and PC on November 1st, 2021.


Zombies Onslaught is a co-op experience for two players. Similar to a Horde mode, players will have to fight off wave after wave of zombies, which get increasingly more difficult to beat over time. Playing on standard multiplayer maps, a Dark Aether Orb confines both players to specific spaces on the map, with Zombies spawning all around. Killing these zombies powers the Orb and forces it and the player to move and stay within its boundaries. Each wave of zombies becomes harder to beat, and some will feature Elite enemies, just to make the challenge even harder. Players will also be awarded a rank of either Bronze, Silver, or Gold based on the number of Elites they defeat and will be given special rewards which can be used across Zombies and Multiplayer modes.

Earlier today, an unconfirmed achievement list for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War leaked online. You can head over to TrueAchievements to get a good idea of what the trophy list might look like.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13th.
