The Moment You Have Been Waiting For.
Fans have been waiting for this zombies reveal for a while now, and Treyarch has delivered with a first look, trailer and intro cinematic for the new map in the returning zombies mode. Watch the full reveal below, as well as the subsequent trailer releases:
“The next generation of Zombies is here. New story, New characters, New ways to play.”
The reveal showcases new zombie variants while bringing back much of what fans loved about earlier instalments in the franchise. The new map revealed for Black Ops Cold War is named ‘Die Maschine’ and promises a fresh yet familiar experience for fans. The trailer also showcases a playable Woods, seemingly hinting at story characters being playable in zombies mode.
Look back at the full reveal for multiplayer below, which reveals new maps, gameplay and weapons for the upcoming release, as well as new information from developers, Treyarch.
“Be among the first to see the next generation of Black Ops Multiplayer. The biggest streamers in the world come together with Call of Duty® developers to give you a deep dive into the latest Call of Duty Multiplayer experience across new maps and modes.”
Maps shown in the reveal include Miami, Moscow, Ural Mountains, Armada and more, while returning game modes include the standard Team Deathmatch and Control. A new game mode was announced called VIP Escort, where a player is assigned as a VIP and must be protected by their team.
Combined Arms is a larger-scale mode that allows infantry and vehicular gameplay in different styles of game modes, such as Domination.
Watch the first trailer detailing the story campaign below, as well as further details:
“Welcome to the brink.
The iconic Black Ops series is with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War – the direct sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops, the original that started it all. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will drop players into the depths of the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical battle of the early 1980s. In a gripping single-player campaign, players will descend into the dark center of a global conspiracy alongside iconic characters Woods, Mason, and Hudson, as well as a new cast of operatives to stop a plot decades in the making.
Beyond the Campaign, Black Ops Cold War will deliver the next generation of Multiplayer and Zombies experiences…”
The trailer features the confirmed return of both Woods and Hudson, major characters in the Black Ops franchise. Mason, Black Ops 1’s main character, is also set to return, with a possible yet unconfirmed appearance in this trailer, though the description does state that he will be a part of the game. The game is seemingly a sequel to the original Black Ops rather than a remake like Modern Warfare 2019.
The game is available to pre-order and will release on November 13th. Pre-ordering will unlock access to an Open Beta, first on PS4, and Woods as a character in Warzone.
