With this variation to Black Ops Cold War playlist updates, January seventh will add the next playlists:

Raid + Crossroads Strike 24/7 – A two-map playlist that includes varied sport modes solely Raid and Crossroads Strike (a smaller, restricted model of the Combined Arms Crossroads map). If you want these maps, that is the playlist you’ll need to head to.

While Thursday’s playlist replace will take away the festive Nuketown Holiday 24/7 playlist, commonplace Nuketown 24/7 will likely be accessible for folks like me who can’t get sufficient of that map. They additionally reiterated that Face Off, Prop Hunt, and Fireteam: Dirty Bomb are all staying, so gamers can nonetheless take pleasure in these sport modes in the meanwhile.
