The next generation of global combat

It’s 1981 during the height of the Cold War. The threat of nuclear war looms as decades of conspiracies come to a head. Welcome to the world of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Picking up where the first Black Ops left off, our returning heroes engage in deniable operations alongside new allies and old friends in a high-stakes race in the latest installment of this blockbuster series.

The Black Ops Cold War Campaign is an immersive single-player experience that arms you with an array of cutting-edge ’80s weaponry. Discover enemies and allies as you work to unravel conspiracies in a mind-bending and harrowing journey where you’ll come face to face with an unexpected enemy. 

Warzone and Black Ops Cold War 

Available now, the free-to-play blockbuster battle royale experience, Warzone* will share content with Black Ops Cold War. Black Ops Cold War includes shared progression features with Warzone, adding inventory items that can be used in both titles. Plus, Warzone players will still have access to Modern Warfare content they earned previously, like Operators and weapon blueprints. More information on Black Ops Cold War and Warzone will be announced at a later date.

A cross-gen and connected experience

Black Ops Cold War is a cross-generation and cross-platform title, meaning players can party up with friends on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and other platforms for a truly connected experience. And, when you move over to a PlayStation 5 console, you’ll take your profile, progression, and stats with you. For more information on these features, visit Activision’s FAQ

  • Hi I have a question
    Can I get the beta without pre ordering because I’m not getting it
    Please let me know

  • Wow so we have to pre-order the digital version to try the beta, have to pay $10 more for the PS5, all pre-order bonuses are restricted to digital versions of the game….Activison is really pushing digital.

  • Call of duty Cold War Looks amazing . I hope we get a mode 64 players battles on multiplayer. And hope they bring back the classic zombies back. PlayStation is the best place to play. Thank you PlayStation for delivery the best for us hard core fans

  • If it’s a Cold War, will we not be shooting each other then? Will it be just users online staring at each other across the map for the tension of the Cold War? Can’t wait for my k:d

  • WEAPONS FREE WEAPONS FREE PART 18

  • Looking great!

  • Figures it’d be Activision trying to charge extra for the current to next gen update patch. Why am I not surprised.

  • RIP your hard drives. From the above statements, Warzone will NOT be part of Call of Duty: Black Ops, but continue on in Modern Warfare. The battle pass will be shared between Call of Duty: Black Ops and Warzone, but you have to play Warzone in Modern warfare.

    • No you don’t. Warzone has been available standalone on all platforms since March.

    • The “standalone version” still requires 100gb of disk space, it is very much still Modern Warfare. Also people will have issues with updating, as now you need two large games, that require extra disk space for when downloading patches.

      It would have been a better solution, if Warzone moved to be part of Cold War, but hopefully one day.

  • $70 ladies and gentlemen, let that sink in. I know many people won’t care but I’m no longer buying games at launch starting next gen.

    • I’ve often wondered if it wouldn’t be more profitable to lower the launch price so that more people are willing to buy full price.

    • Especially when price goes after few weeks let’s say 20% down, for another War crimes simulator copycat.

    • You should be happy it was not 70 for ps3 or ps4. This will be the first big jump since the pixel to 3d days.

  • 70$? not buying on launch, and that goes to all games with this price hike. Sorry, there is no excuse to justify the price increase while still using anti-consumer practices like season passes, loot-boxes, DLC and micro transactions. I was fine with 60$, now in response I’ll wait for discounts way under 60$ and probably even lower on flash sales. Games are so unfinished these days that waiting will benefit me more that the discount itself, if you know what I mean.

  • Pay to upgrade to the ps5 version? That’s a big no, and if the ps5 version is 70, guess I’m not buying cod this year lol, already littered with mirco transactions, ill just buy cyberpunk instead and get a free ps5 upgrade

  • Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Charge more money while doing so. Sounds great.

  • Funny how y’all messed up CoD beyond fix so you had to get back to the old school CoD sort of a twisted way to listen to the fans,typical activision.Also funny that tease of the online…y’all all happy that you have vehicles now while BF has been doing that for more than a decade lol.

    But it’s all cool,last year’s MW was the rebirth of CoD game is great and I see this is going in the same direction too,B.O 1 was pretty good…so looking forward to this.

    Also I must say making the online cross-gen connected is an incredible idea…this way the playerbase will always be stable,not that CoD needs playas but maybe hopefully that will inspire other devs to do the same.

  • Game looks awesome ready to play it on next gen

  • Can’t wait for the beta.

  • Any one can help me i pre order cold war ultimate on my ps4 but i can’t see frank operator?

  • But do we have to buy it too in ps5 or we can use ps4 games in ps5?

  • im pre-ordering a ps5 with disk drive as soon as I can in Canada. hope the ps5 will have an option to force output resolution to 1440p @ 120hz and alow the dualsense to run in wired USB mode like the newer ds4 controller can

  • Looks good 👍

  • Anyone else not able to see the 2nd video? Won’t give me credit for this course.
