Activision has delivered on its promise to unveil Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War inside Call of Duty: Warzone, debuting footage via an in-game event that was captured from a PlayStation 5. The game will launch on PlayStation 4 on 13th November 2020, and you'll be able to upgrade to the PS5 version if you purchase the specific Cross-Gen Bundle. This costs £5/$10 more than the base game and includes early access to the open beta, Frank Woods for use in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and a Confrontation Weapons Pack.
The PlayStation Store listing describes the game as a "volatile geopolitical battle of the early 1980s. In a gripping single-player Campaign, where players will come face-to-face with historical figures and hard truths, as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Vietnam, Turkey, Soviet KGB headquarters and more." It will have a campaign, the traditional multiplayer suite of options, and an extensive Zombies mode. The worldwide reveal of multiplayer will take place on 9th September 2020.
The single player portion will support multiple endings, with the choices you make reflected in-game as the campaign changes. You will also be able to unlock side missions in this direct sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops. PS4 and PS5 players will be able to play with each other across generations, while cross-progression will ensure you don't lose progress in any of its modes.
