Tre­yarch is push­ing a flur­ry of updates to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War before the start Sea­son One (which was delayed). A larg­er update was released on Decem­ber 8th, with this lat­est one releas­ing yes­ter­day. Accord­ing to Tre­yarch, it address­es a few issues that “man­aged to slip through the cracks” after the Decem­ber 8th update.

The map Mia­mi has been added to the Com­bined Arms playlist, join­ing Cross­roads, Arma­da and Car­tel. Zom­bies mode got a cou­ple of changes, includ­ing Pack-a-Punch camos for the Ray Gun and an issue where zom­bies would ignore play­ers after leav­ing the Dark Aether.

While this update does­n’t address all of the game’s known prob­lems, it did have sev­er­al fix­es for Black Ops Cold War. Map vot­ing was dis­abled for some rea­son, but was restored with this patch. Addi­tion­al crash fix­es were also made, along with gen­er­al sta­bil­i­ty fixes.

Tre­yarch is still look­ing to ongo­ing issues in Black Ops Cold War, like prob­lems with the Dia­mond Camo appear­ing locked for play­ers who have earned and some Xbox play­ers who have report­ed receiv­ing a “Tri­al Has End­ed” pop-up mes­sage (which should be resolved).
