PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S players can expect a 12.3GB update and an 11.6GB update respectively. On last-gen consoles, both PS4 and Xbox One players can expect an 8 GB update and on PC, there’s 13 GB update  just for the updates to Black Ops: Cold War.

The updates for Call of Duty: Warzone are much more substantial and will require 25 GB of space for each platform. 

Some of the most notable updates are the arrival of Captain Price as an Operator for Black Ops: Cold War, and the addition of weapons like a baseball bat and a ballistic knife. The new maps are Yamantau, Standoff, Diesel, and Duga. Fans of Black Ops II will recognize Standoff being brought back into the fold, while the rest are all new maps. 

Of course, each of the new weapons will also be available to players in Warzone. Along with the new weapons, the update will also see the next chapter in Call of Duty: Warzone’s story, as things continue to ramp up in Verdansk. 

For all the nitty-gritty details and what else will be coming to the new season of Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, you can look at the full post on the Call of Duty website here.
