“It’s time we took a peek behind the Iron Curtain.” – Russell Adler, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War
Ready to make history?
It’s time to blow up a Cold War conspiracy decades in the making with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the direct sequel to the original and epic Black Ops. Jump into the 3 explosive modes of play: a mind-bending single-player Campaign, a bold new chapter in the cooperative Zombies mode and an action-packed Multiplayer mode, all connected to deliver a creative and immersive experience for fans. Black Ops Cold War expands access for players on all platforms with new and revamped crossplay and cross-progression features. Multiplayer and Zombies will also share a new progression system and players will be able to earn the prominent Prestige Master title in every future Season that is released. Study up on the features and content packed into this iconic game.
Alex Mason, Frank Woods, and Jason Hudson make their return in the single-player experience to navigate through deniable operations, where nothing is really as it seems. From creating your own operative or playing as Mason, your mission is to chase down the Soviet agent ‘Perseus’, a myth who has appeared after decades of dormancy, and save the world from unimaginable disaster. Each Mission in the Campaign will offer different scenarios for you to play through, from long-range combat and close quarter to stealth and all-out warfare.
The iconic Multiplayer experience expands the vast suite of fun and competitive modes with a revamped progression system and customizable loadouts in Black Ops Cold War. Team up and face off with other members in the Call of Duty community and drop into the signature modes of Team Deathmatch, Free-For-All, Domination and more. Multiplayer will also bring back the 6v6 mode Control, which tasks players to capture or defend two objectives on the map, as well as introduce the all-new VIP Escort, where a team must escort one player successfully to an exfil site or eliminate the opposing team to win. For larger combat modes, players can battle each other in vehicles within the 12v12 Combined Arms or fight for supremacy against 10 squads of four operators in Fireteam: Dirty Bomb.
Create the best loadout for your playstyle and dominate the battle with the ultra-customizable Create-a-Class, a rule-breaking Wildcard and a resourceful Field Upgrade. By racking up Scorestreaks from repeated eliminations, earn powerful rewards that include heavy-hitting weaponry to controllable aerial vehicles to keep your lead in the fight against other players.
Fight off legions of undead horrors in this co-op experience, featuring you and up to three other Operators. As agents of Requiem, a CIA-backed international response team led by Grigori Weaver, your mission is to investigate and suppress supernatural anomalies around the world.
To battle against the waves of the undead and maintain global order, Requiem agents will have access to upgradeable Perks and an arsenal of Cold War-era weaponry. Agents will also go head-to-head with the rival Soviet-led Omega Group, who have taken a keen interest in studying and harnessing the anomalies, as well as unraveling mysterious secrets that have been left hidden over the decades.
The next co-op top down arcade shooter will also be included to play with either yourself or a team of four in the Zombies menu. Survive as long as you can through expansive open world areas, challenging new arenas, bonus areas and randomly generated dungeons.
Post-Launch Content and Warzone: Live seasons are on the schedule for post-launch plans and will feature plenty of new and free post-release content for all players. These live seasons will also integrate into the next evolution of Warzone, which now features Black Ops Cold War operators.
