Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has received a new December 22 patch as a server update along with the full list of patch notes. There have been several major game updates to BOCW in the last few days, and that was all because of the launch of Season One. Call of Duty: Warzone is also now integrated with Black Ops.

In this latest Dec. 22 update, Treyarch has added two new playlists featuring the new Raid and the Nuketown Holiday maps. The developers have also added a new Face Off (3v3) mode which is another variant of Gunfight. Most importantly, if you play over the holiday season, you get double Battle Pass XP points till December 28.
