Call Of Duty Black Ops: Cold War Officially Revealed
After a series of teasers and leaks, Activision has finally revealed the trailer for Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War. The game will launch on PS4 and Xbox One on November 13, with the next gen versions coming this holiday season.
Cold War is developed as a collaboration between Raven and Treyarch; it will feature a campaign mode, multiplayer, Zombies, and a continuation of Warzone.
According to Battle.net, Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War will feature a number of modes:
- Campaign: “Black Ops Cold War will drop fans into the depths of the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical battle of the early 1980s. Nothing is ever as it seems in a gripping single-player Campaign, where players will come face-to-face with historical figures and hard truths, as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Vietnam, Turkey, Soviet KGB headquarters and more.”
- Multiplayer: “Bring a Cold War arsenal of weapons and equipment into the next generation of Multiplayer in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Engage in deniable operations as an elite operative using state of the art tools of the tradecraft across a variety of experiences from small skirmishes to all out, vehicle-fueled warfare.”
- Zombies: “Uncover dark Cold War experiments that unleash a new Zombie threat to take on in frightening and intense co-operative gameplay with friends.”
With regard to next-gen versions and upgrades, the Activision support website said:
Both digital console versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War offer upgrades, within the same console family, from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5 and Xbox One to Xbox Series X that will support higher framerate, hardware-based ray-tracing, shorter load times, and more.
- PlayStation 4 will have an option to upgrade to PlayStation 5 through the PlayStation Store.
- Xbox One will have an option to upgrade to Xbox Series X through the Microsoft Store at launch.
Both current generation versions (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) will be playable on their respective next-generation console via backwards compatibility by downloading the game from your account’s digital library. But, the game will not include any of the next-generation features, such as higher framerate, hardware-based ray-tracing, faster load times, and more.
