Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s midseason one update, called Season One: Reloaded, is now live and Treyarch has loaded up the patch notes so fans know everything that’s included.

The star of this update is the new Fireteam map called Sanatorium. It's a huge playable area with rumors pointing toward this and other Fireteam maps being put together to make up a new Warzone location.

There's also a new game mode called Dropkick, which is a six-vs-six mode where players drop in and fight for control of nuclear codes and a nuclear briefcase.

Zombies has some new content for players to dive into with a mode called Cranked. It's similar to the multiplayer mode of the same name, where every zombie killed resets a timer that counts down until the player blows up. For PlayStation players, Raid joins the list of playable maps in Onslaught mode as well.

Treyarch also made several other announcements today, including the upcoming additions of Express from Black Ops II and Black Ops Cold War's second Zombies map, Firebase Z. Both of those maps won't be available until Feb. 4, however.
