Party Games are making a comeback, kicking off with One in the Chamber. “In this classic game mode, players are given three lives and a pistol with one bullet. Land a perfect shot or melee your opponent to gain another bullet and 100 points. Be mindful of the regularly sweeping UAV, and fight to earn the most points to claim victory.”

You can take a look at the roadmap, as well as screenshots of the new Specialist Hawk, Blackout’s Ghost Town western-themed map, Zombies’ ‘Death-Con Five’ Gauntlet’s Classified map, and the two new multiplayer maps – Lockup and Casino – in the gallery below.

You’ll also spot Blackjack, making his return to the Black Market, as well as the Cosmic Silverback from Dead Ops Arcade, who will be available in Blackout.

As with all of the previous content drops, PC and Xbox One players will have to wait seven days before getting in on the action.
