Call of Duty: Black Ops COld War Reveal Zombies With New Trailers

Today Activision revealed the iconic Zombie features that will be included in the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

We get to see a trailer for the Zombies features, one for the story-driven “Die Maschine” and a video presentation neatly tying it up.

You can check them all out below.

Here’s what we can expect from Die Maschine, directly from Activision’s blog post:

“With more than a nod to “Nacht der Untoten” – the map that started it all – “Die Maschine” takes place in the early ‘80s, but its roots reach back even further into the past.

As part of Requiem, a CIA-backed international response team led by Grigori Weaver from the original Black Ops story, operatives explore a World War II bunker that hasn’t only been ravaged by time…

Jump Rope Challenge Is Nintendo’s P.T.; Download It Before It’s Delisted

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Nintendo thought it would be a great idea to release Jump Rope Challenge to the world. It’s a free downloadable title that’s available on the Switch eShop that lets you use Joy-Con to exercise by hopping with a virtual jump rope.

It’s a fun little game that encourages children and even adults to stay active during these troubled times when it can be challenging to get outside and work out somewhere.

The thing is though, Jump Rope Challenge is getting delisted from the eShop tomorrow, which means that you will not be able to download it ever again. If you’ve already downloaded the game, then you have nothing to worry about, but if not, make sure to grab it while you still can.

Who knows? Maybe you can end up selling your Switch console with Jump Rope Challenge installed for like a million dollars or something. … Read the rest
