Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 1 is about to begin with all its tiers and rewards. Fans have been anticipating the integration of the free-to-play battle royale and newest Call of Duty instalment since November, and this has resulted in lots of people asking: what time does Black Ops Cold War Season 1 start? Here you’ll find the release time as well as the new multiplayer modes.

The gameplay trailer for the upcoming integration has shown off Rebirth Island which was leaked months ago. This doesn’t mean the end of Verdansk as the Nuke event we’ve all been anticipating for many moons will reportedly happen in March, but Rebirth Island should still be exciting for Warzone players.

While the above is disappointing for those who desperately want a new Verdansk map, below you’ll find the release time for when Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Season 1 will start.
