Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is getting a new version of the multiplayer map Miami next week. Treyarch announced this on their official Twitter account today, saying the new version has a “close quarters” layout and has been designed as a 6v6 map. This is not your typical Miami night, as this takes place during the daytime.
Of course, Treyarch is giving players a 24/7 playlist for Miami Strike when the map releases next week.
The original map has been criticized by players for being too dark, making it difficult to see enemies. The map is also on the larger side, resulting in matches ending in time ending instead of kill count/score requirement.
No exact date for when this map will appear in Cold War was given, but Treyarch already has a bunch of content coming up for their mid-season update next week. However, today, Treyarch did add a new Special weapon to Black Ops Cold War.
This new crossbow, which accidentally went live recently, officially went on sale today. Players can unlock the weapon by getting three One Shot, One Kill medals in 15 different matches using a weapon with no attachments. Or, you can purchase it directly from the in-game store.
Shortly after announcing the map variant of Miami, Treyarch also announced two new maps for Cold War’s multiplayer. The first is Mansion, and appears to be based on level near the end of the game’s campaign. It features wide-open spaces and a vertical battleground.
The last new map is Golova. It’s one of Black Ops Cold War’s larger maps, and it will now support the new 40-player Hardpoint mode. While this map isn’t new to Cold War, it is for those who have never played Zombies.
