New Call of Duty game release


Second season of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone

It’s set to be another busy day for online gamers tomorrow (Feb 25) as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone releases its hotly anticipated second season for download.

The new season, which will be released by game designers Activision between 5am and 7am on Thursday, will include a host of new features including new enemies, new weapons and new warzones to explore.

There’s even a new challenge called Outbreak - a large-scale survival experience where players must “travel across snowy landscapes and deserted buildings trying to outwit and outgun zombie hordes”.

Sounds fun.

Of course, a major new Call of Duty release means it’s bound to be busy online as gamers seek to download the latest chapters. But don’t worry, our full fibre network is ideally placed to cope with any major increase in demand due to the latest X Box and PlayStation updates.

Most internet users should not notice any major difference in their online experience for streaming or online browsing.

Unlike other providers, we store ‘caches’ of popular content for platforms such as Netflix, YouTube and iPlayer on our own local network, meaning it can be delivered directly to customers without having to pass through slow external networks outside of Hull and East Yorkshire.

If downloading gamers do notice a slower than normal service that will more than likely be due to bottlenecks on networks outside of our control as people around the world all scramble to download the updates from the game designers.
