Treyarch and Raven reveal more about Call of Duty: Black Ops — Cold War’s campaign and Zombies

Treyarch and Raven Software revealed more details about the Call of Duty: Black Ops — Cold War single-player campaign and Zombies mode.

Raven revealed some missions, such as Nowhere Left to Run. It’s set in a grungy tavern in Amsterdam two weeks after New Years Day in 1981. Three CIA operatives converge on the bar to meet with a source and capture a key target behind a hostage crisis. It introduces Adler and reacquaints the player with Frank Woods and Alex Mason.

They chase the target on rooftops and have multiple shootouts. Then the action shifts to the Trabzon Airfield in Turkey, where another key target is found. Another mission, Fracture Jaw, takes place in a flashback in Vietnam. Perseus, a long-sought Soviet spy, is the target of that mission.

Then we return to the 1980s with Desperate Missions, where Adler infiltrates KGB headquarters in Moscow. The player assumes the role of a double agent for both the CIA and the KGB. That sounds a little dicey. All the while, the agents pursue Perseus around the globe before the spy can change history.

Zombies mode

Treyarch also revealed new details about the story in the Zombies, dubbed Into the Aether.

Treyarch said that for the first time, Activision will release a series of free Zombies maps after Cold War’s launch. In the past, players had to pay for them. But the company wants to keep the Zombies community together, rather than split it up.
