Unfortunately, Okami doesn't divulge a ton of details, let alone details of the salient variety, however, what they do note is that it's "supposed to be Treyarch style, co-op zombies on a large-scale Fireteam map." Adding to this, Okami notes that they've heard the mode described, presumably by sources, as "open-world Zombies." And this is where the details end.
Since Okami shared this, the report has been backed up and echoed by several other Call of Duty insiders, suggesting there are legs to the claims. However, for now, everything here should be taken with a grain of salt. Everything here is both unofficial and subject to change.
In other COD news - there's a new mode called Outbreak coming soon.— Okami (@Okami13_) February 10, 2021
Don't know all the details but it's supposed to be Treyarch style, co-op zombies on a large scale Fireteam map.
I've heard it described as "open world zombies," so take that for what you will.
At the moment of publishing, neither Treyarch nor Activision have commented on any of this, and it's unlikely this will change. However, if the report is accurate, then we should hear more, and official, details on this in the coming weeks.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available via the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC.
