If you are a fan of the Call of Duty games then you do not need us to tell you how much has been going on with the franchise lately. There has been the recent release of Black Ops Cold War and the free to play online Warzone has been getting more and more popular as the months go by.
One of the main reasons for that, other than being able to play it for free, is the continual updates that Warzone gets that add things from new missions to new cosmetic items – there is always something to do and the game is always evolving.
Another update has just arrived, bringing many exciting new features for us to start playing. If you want the lowdown on what is new and when it arrived, just keep on reading.
CoD Warzone and Cold War update time: When does the weekly update drop?
The latest update rolled out on Thursday, March 11th, and for players in the UK it landed at 18:00. If you haven’t downloaded this update yet, you should be prompted to do so the next time you try to open Warzone on your device of choice. Just remember – these updates sometimes take a while to download, so you might want to boot up your console or computer sooner rather than later to get the process started
Patch Notes: what’s new in CoD Warzone and Cold War’s March 11th update?
With this update comes an end, as Call of Duty Outbreak Challenge event came to close in Warzone when the patch was deployed. The concept of Outbreak isn’t gone altogether, though, as there are some different challenges happening now.
One thing that did not happen in this update was the rumoured Nuke event, which is believed to be bringing a new map to Warzone at some point. We’ll just have to keep waiting for that one.
For more info on what did change with the 11th March CoD update, we’ll direct you to the official patch notes from Treyarch, which we’ve shared in their original form below. Here’s everything that’s new:
St. Patrick’s Stockpile
Get ready to go green! In celebration of St. Paddy’s, we’re launching the holiday-themed St. Patrick’s Stockpile mode in Multiplayer today through 10AM PT, March 18th.
Eliminate your enemies and collect the Shamrocks they drop, grab as many as you can, and deposit your stash at the Pot o’ Gold to earn points for your team. The first team to hit the score limit wins, but be careful… you’ll drop your entire stockpile if you go down!
Keep an eye out for our more classic take on Stockpile arriving next week after St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone. We’re huge fans of this mode, and hope you enjoy it as much as we always have since it was introduced in Black Ops III as Fracture.
Prop Hunt Updates Incoming
Prop Hunt is taking a short break while we refresh the prop selection on our existing maps and add support for two more maps later in the season: Satellite and our next 6v6 map, Miami Strike. Face Off and Gunfight Blueprints also return to the Featured Playlist rotation this week.
