With each passing Season, the quantity of remakes in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has become larger. While a few players are burnt out on seeing old maps brought back, others love them — and those positive on the idea want to see a particular remake come to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
So far, a majority of the remakes in the game have come straightforwardly from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Raid came not long after launch, with Express and Standoff following. Both Hijacked and Rush came in Season 4, and when Season 5 drops on August 12, one more Black Ops 2 remaster will feature. This time around, the Slums will be the map to get a new coat of paint, something that fans ought to be familiar with since it also appeared in Black Ops 3 and Black Ops 4.
Ghettos won't be coming alone, nonetheless, as a couple of maps from the original Black Ops game are also being added in Season 5. The two additions, Zoo and Drive-In, were both DLC maps for the 2010 release. As such, fans have been helped to remember how solid that game's post-launch content was. This had driven Reddit client naz2348 to start a thread asking Treyarch to bring back Kowloon. With the post earning nearly 2,000 upvotes, plainly this fan isn't alone in expecting its return.
Added to Call of Duty: Black Ops' multiplayer as part of the First Strike map pack, there were several things that stood apart about the China-based map, for example, its evening time setting and neon signs. The caged monkeys also gave some atmosphere. In any case, it was the ziplines that genuinely put Kowloon aside. While the mechanic has appeared in many Call of Duty maps since, it was a game changer at the time. As brought up by Redditor 182right, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's utilization of ziplines would make Kowloon a natural fit.
Call of Duty's map remakes have almost always been for locations that were part of a game's launch map setup, likely because more fans had the chance to become attached to them. Notwithstanding, with the additions of Rush, Zoo, and Drive-In, unmistakably the entryway for DLC map remasters is presently open. With regards to Treyarch's post-launch map additions, it is hard to think about a preferred decision over Kowloon. As such, ideally fans like tuan321bin will get their desire and the map will re-appear later on.
With just one Season left, and Yemen and Plaza remasters leaked, it appears to be improbable that Kowloon will make the cut for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. All things considered, ideally this demonstration of appreciation for the map will see it remembered for a future game.
