Cold War setting
Unlike Modern Warfare taking place in today’s world, and Black Ops with its futuristic approach, Cold War transports us back in time. A sequel to the original Black Ops, the game is set in the 80s Cold War era, so - no boosters, thrusters, or running stamina systems. Everything appears to be more natural than previous titles; Sprint Take-off gives us a running start, before slowing down – just like in real life. Footstep Control is determined by the pace, impacting the volume – so crouching will make you silent. This no-nonsense approach is gonna feel relatable and real, and we’re ready for it!
Back for Cold War, Scorestreaks will continue building and the biggest change this year is that you no longer lose progress if you die, so instead of trying to conserve and defend streaks, players will be inclined to take risks and attack. And with 21 different streaks to help us and our teammates defeat the enemy, we can’t wait to see how this change might boost our stats without the need to re-set.
Compatibility with next-gen technology
Integration with Warzone
Not only will we be able to play with friends across PC, PlayStation and Xbox, but as fans will know, players will also get to experience cross-progression, so players can carry profiles over, along with progression and stats tied to their Activision account. As huge fans of Warzone, the possibility of switching between platforms and different generations without losing progression is very welcome. Call of Duty: Warzone will become a hub for both Cold War and Modern Warfare, acting as a middle ground that brings together the two games’ content. Players will have access to operators, loadouts, weapons plus more – all divided within the game’s menu. The full integration will come in December, but we’re happy to wait!
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will run on the PS4, Xbox One, PC and the upcoming PS5 and Xbox Series X.
