A conspiracy-fill thrill ride set in the 1980s Cold War
The game picks up after the original, where players fight alongside fan favourite-characters like Woods, Mason and Hudson. Players soon learn that everything isn’t what it seems in this conspiracy-filled thrill ride. The game fuses elements of 1980s pop culture through a mind-bending conspiracy story in a gripping single-player Campaign.
Additionally, you’ll encounter historic figures and learn hard truths as they in iconic locales like East Berlin, Turkey, Vietnam, Soviet-era Moscow, and more. As elite operatives, you attempt to stop a plot decades in the making as you follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus. Who, is on a mission to destabilize the global balance of power and change the course of history.
The next generation of Black Ops Multiplayer combat
In addition to the story campaign, Black Ops Cold War brings an arsenal of Cold War weapons and equipment into the next generation of multiplayer combat, new content into Warzone, and an all-new co-operative gameplay experience with Zombies.
Moreover, this new game features cross-play support across current and next generation systems with cross progression across all modes. This means PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC players can all play together. In addition, the game will offer a Battle Pass system and deliver a steady stream of free post-launch content. This includes multiplayer maps and modes, Zombies experiences and a robust schedule of in-game community events.
Furthermore, Black Ops Cold War will also support and build on Call of Duty: Warzone by including shared progression features, and adding brand new inventory items that can be used in both games.
