What’s Coming In Today’s Playlist Update?

The exact details on today’s Playlist Update haven’t been revealed just yet, but it is likely that Warzone will receive the brand new Iron Trials ’84 playlist.

Warzone’s new mode is aimed at those looking for a bit more of a challenge in Verdansk. According to the official blog post for Iron Trials ’84, fans can expect the following changes.

Match duration will be decreased by a total of 12%, whilst the speed of the approaching circle has been increased by 12%, making for a much quicker, fast-paced game.

There will also be no free loadouts, so the only way to access one is via buy stations located around Verdansk. Speaking of which, all buy station prices have been increased.

One of the other big changes in Iron Trials ’84 is the extreme amount of health every player has. The base health has been increased from 100 to 250.

More details of the upcoming Warzone mode can be found on the official Call of Duty website.

Stay tuned for the full patch notes to find out what changes will be arriving in Black Ops Cold War later today.

Warzone and Cold War Playlist Update Time

The latest Playlist Update will go live in both Cold War and Warzone today (Thursday, September 16) at 10AM PT / 6PM BST.

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