As usual, the developers over at Treyarch have another holiday up their sleeve. This time it's a Lunar New Year celebration slated for Black Ops Cold War. There are some cool things dropping to celebrate the Chinese tradition, and we thought it best to let you know everything you can expect.

Well, first it's poncy love heart ‘kiss-confirmed’ tags for Valentine's Day, and now it’s time to jump into the Lunar New Year in style. It looks like Lunar New Year will be a less poncy affair in Black Ops Cold War, with a couple of cool additions becoming available in the game store.

Notably, Treyarch are celebrating the Lunar New Year with the release of the ‘Tracer Pack: Year of the OX’ bundle, which will reportedly include Legendary Weapon Blueprints with tracer rounds. Excited? Well, it's certainly more intriguing than what's up this weekend for Valentine's Day, but it is not particularly exciting.

Also coming in February is the ‘Top Secret Admirer’ bundle for Valentine's Day (on top of the new Kiss-Confirmed mode) and theCarnival Captain’ bundle to celebrate Mardi Gras. The latter will feature an awesome ‘Breaker’ skin for NATO's Baker.

We will continue to see little additions to BOCW as the year develops, with holidays being celebrated here and there with skin-drops, weapon packs and new operators, all of which will be available to purchase through the in-game store.

Already in Season 1: Reloaded, we have a couple of new additions that have made the leap onto the Black Ops Cold War and Warzone store. These have included the introduction of Zeyna and a Zombies-themed Bulldozer Skin. The themed bundles that we are seeing are always a welcome addition, and we can't wait to continue playing in style.

It might all seem like a bit of ponce, but if you like wasting your money on meaningless skins and some extra blueprints, then it’s time to splash out on the Lunar New Year bundle. If that's not your thing, then perhaps you should check out the Kiss Confirmed mode for Valentine's Day, if you enjoy cringe, that is...
