Warzone and Black Ops Cold War Playlist Update Release Time

New playlist updates go live in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War every Thursday, and this week is expected to be no different. The latest playlist update will go live in both games on Thursday, October 28th, 2021 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.

What’s New In Today’s Playlist Update?

Warzone fans will be pleased to know that this week’s playlist update finally features the return of Plunder, which was swapped out for the 50v50 Clash mode some weeks ago. Iron Trials ’84 will also return as a weekend exclusive and will be for solos only.

Details on what’s coming in Black Ops Cold War’s latest playlist update haven’t been revealed just yet, but with The Haunting Event continuing for another week, fans can likely expect the Halloween-themed modes to stick around.

Finally, we have a massive Triple-Double XP Weekend kicking off on Friday, October 29th until Monday, November 1st. Players will be able to earn double level, weapon, and battle pass XP for the duration of this weekend.

For more details, check out the official October 28 patch notes for both titles below.
