Stitch, a new operative with a long-standing grudge for Russell Adler, takes center stage in the trailer. The video sees Stitch plotting and luring Adler and his team to the Mall at the Pines, a location that had also been leaked online last week. He holds up a photo of Rebirth Island (also known as Vozrozhdeniya Island), a location that appeared in the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, and states he was in charge of developing the biochemical weapon Nova-6 there until Mason and the Americans foiled plans of its release. Stitch was then captured and tortured by Adler for information before being sentenced to the Gulag, where he found his “true calling”.
Activision has yet to confirm Rebirth Island’s presence, so we don’t know what it will entail in terms of the types of modes available for it. Season 1 is already bringing back the Raid map from Black Ops II as well as a new take on Nuketown so it’s not out of the question to see another map from Black Ops’ history. The season kicks off December 16 and brings a ton of free updates to Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, including new Zombies modes, an additional Warzone map, a revamped Gulag, and the return of 2v2 gunfights.
We enjoyed Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War quite a bit. Check out our review here and watch us take the campaign for a spin in our New Gameplay Today video. The game is available now for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
