The new Call of Duty is set to release on Friday, 13 November 2020 just in time for the Holiday season!
RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY - Will Black Ops cover any controversial topics?
This is the first time the public will have full access to any Black Ops Cold War content, so keep your calendar clear.
We know the game will release on current-gen console on 13 November, but when will next-gen (PS5 and Xbox Series X) consoles have access?
Below, you can check out both of the trailers for the upcoming Call of Duty title.
This reveal trailer shows off the time period and some of the characters and story we'll explore in the campaign.
Below, you can see the extended cinematic trailer that was released on 27 August.
This trailer shows us a cutscene from the game in which the characters, Woods and Mason are talking to President Nixon.
NOW WATCH BELOW - COLD WAR BRIEFING TRAILER
We can expect this cutscene to appear in the game at the start of the campaign.
The new Call of Duty will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One at the launch date.
Unfortunately, it seems the next-gen consoles won't be on the market before the release of Cold War.
The game will release at a later date, on PS5 and Xbox Series X - but will come with enhanced features!
There's only a small amount of gameplay featured at the end of the Cold War trailer.
From what we've seen, it seems the new Call of Duty will continue to be "Boots on the ground".
EYES ON THE PRIZE - An upcoming reveal should tell us more
This effectively means there will be little vertical movement and will have simple gameplay mechanics.
Overall, this will make for a more competitive experience.
This means the return of some fan favourite guns like the AK74u and the Galil.
We hope Treyarch will keep the Gunsmith system that was introduced with Modern Warfare in 2019.
This will allow players to customise their weapons with ease.
Modern Warfare (2019) showed off the graphics that are possible on current-gen systems.
RAY TRACING - This lighting technique is available in Modern Warfare!
From the small amount of gameplay we've seen, it seems the new title will be just as realistic as the current game.
The graphics of the game will depend on the system you play the game on.
For those on PC, you'll have a lot of freedom with the graphics you choose to play with.
You'll also be able to enable Ray Tracing on PC, giving the game an even more realistic look.
We know Black Ops Cold War will continue the storyline of the first Black Ops title.
This means iconic characters like Mason, Woods and Jason Hudson will be returning!
THE GREAT COMMUNICATOR - We know President Reagan will play a part
From the trailer, we see these characters in a meeting discussing a russian spy named Persius.
Our characters must hunt down and capture this spy. It seems President Nixon will also play a big role in this story.
The story will also feature multiple endings, allowing players to choose what happens in the campaign.
Downloadable Content (DLC)
DLC has allowed Call of Duty to consantly produce new content even after the release of a main title.
In the past it has cost players money to get access to extra content. However, this year has changed things up!
WOODS IN WARZONE - Pre-Order Cold War to unlock Frank Woods in Warzone!
All of the playable in-game content is now free, exlcuding cosmetics.
We hope this trend continues into the new game, as this keeps the player base together.
From everything we've seen, Black Ops Cold War is shaping up to be quite a game!
