What’s Coming In Today’s Playlist Update?

Last week saw the arrival of Iron Trials ’84 in Warzone, and fans have been loving the new competitive game mode. But some players have been eager to get back into standard Battle Royale Duos as the mode was replaced with Iron Trials.

Although nothing has been confirmed by Raven Software just yet, it’s possible that this week’s Playlist Update either removes Iron Trials ’84 or simply adds back in standard Battle Royale Duos, whilst also keeping the new mode.

Cold War Multiplayer also had the chaos levels turned up last week with Nuketown 12v12, Gunfight Blueprints, and the return of Double Agent.

Again, nothing has been confirmed by Treyarch Studios for this week’s Playlist Update, but expect plenty of variety with some more popular modes possible being rotated back in.

Warzone and Cold War Playlist Update Time

The latest Playlist Update will go live in both Cold War and Warzone today (Thursday, September 23) at 10AM PT / 6PM BST.

A patch will not be required for download, as the update will be applied in-game at the aforementioned time.
