The new Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War reveal took place yesterday during the Modern Warfare Warzone.

Return to one of the most thrilling and unforgettable video game series of all time in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Set in the early ‘80s at the height of the Cold War, this is the direct sequel to Call of Duty®: Black Ops, the original phenomenon that started it all.

Developed by Treyarch and Raven Software, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is scheduled for worldwide release Friday, November 13, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on Battle.net. Black Ops Cold War is also scheduled for release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, when those consoles are available to players.

Taking place after the events of the original story, Black Ops Cold War reunites players with legendary operatives Alex Mason, Frank Woods, and Jason Hudson as they’re pulled into a high-stakes conspiracy. Joined by a new cast of characters and faced with threats from the past, players will uncover a subversive plot with devastating global implications.

A Truly Connected Experience

As a new generation of consoles arrive later this year, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will have fans covered no matter where they play.  The title supports cross-platform and cross-generation play, so you can play with your friends regardless of whether they’re on current or next generation platforms. Plus, when you’re ready to move to PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X you can take your profile, progression and stats with you.

Black Ops Cold War also features:

· Cross-play and cross-generation support: The entire community across PlayStation (PS4, PS5), Xbox (Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox Series X) and PC (Battle.net) can party up and play together.

· Massive calendar of free, post-launch content, including Multiplayer maps and modes.

· Battle Pass system to unlock post-launch content with unified progression across both Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone. Unlock items like base weapons, customization items and more simply by playing the game.

I’m excited about this game because Black Ops was the first Call of Duty game to start using a battle royale format.  I can’t wait for this game to be released.

Will you be getting this game for your child and/or for yourself?
