With available crossplay and cross-progression features, as well as a new progression system tied between Multiplayer and Zombies, players can compete with their friends while earning the prestigious title of Prestige Master each Season, no matter which platform they play on.

Black Ops Cold War is the definitive sequel to the original Black Ops game and is rated for mature audiences.

It is available to play now!

This game includes:

Campaign: The single-player experience of Black Ops Cold War is the direct sequel to the original Black Ops Campaign and features a mind-bending narrative that includes the return of Alex Mason, Frank Woods, and Jason Hudson. Along with playing as Mason, you’ll create your own operative and join a CIA-led task force in finding a global threat called “Perseus,” a Soviet agent that is set to shift the balance of the Cold War after decades of dormancy. Missions within the Campaign include a variety of differing playstyles, such as close quarter, stealth, and long-range combat scenarios.

Multiplayer: The signature Multiplayer experience of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War offers a variety of fun and competitive modes with customizable loadouts and a revamped progression system. Fight alongside and against members of the Call of Duty community in a variety of traditional Multiplayer offerings – including Team Deathmatch, Domination, Free-For-All, and more – and a variety of 6v6 objective modes, including the all-new VIP Escort and the return on Control. Experience the thrill of 12v12 combat with vehicles in Combined Arms, or squad up with three other players for the biggest Multiplayer experience in the game where 10 squads of four Operators battle for supremacy on the largest maps on offer.

Through Create-a-Class, you’ll have an ultra-customizable loadout to bring to battle, complete with a versatile Field Upgrade and a rule-breaking Wildcard to fit your playstyle. Rack up eliminations and play the objective play to earn Scorestreaks, powerful rewards that range from badass weaponry to controllable aerial vehicles that deliver a devastating amount of shock-and-awe to the fight.

Zombies: This co-op experience features you and up to three other Operators fending off legions of undead horrors as agents of Requiem, a CIA-backed international response team led by Grigori Weaver tasked at investigating and suppressing supernatural anomalies around the world.

While coming face-to-face with the rival Omega Group, a Soviet-led organization looking to research and potentially harness these anomalies for themselves, Requiem agents will use upgradeable Perks and an arsenal of Cold War-era Zombies weaponry against waves of the undead, as well as uncover decades-old secrets that could upend the global order.

This is also where you can play the third installment of the Black Ops series’ co-op top-down arcade shooter! Jump into a match from the Zombies menu with your team and survive as long as possible through challenging new arenas, open world spaces, bonus areas, and randomly generated dungeons.

Post-Launch Content and Warzone: Black Ops Cold War is scheduled to have live seasons post-launch featuring a load of new post-release content coming free for all players on all platforms simultaneously. These live seasons will also further the evolution of Warzone, which now features Operators from Black Ops Cold War.

Live at Launch: Call of Duty Endowment Challenger Pack

As part of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s launch, all players can support the Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit organization that helps veterans in the US and UK find high-quality civilian jobs, by purchasing the Call of Duty Endowment Challenger Pack, available now in-game and in Warzone in December. 100% of Activision’s net proceeds received from sales of the Challenger Pack goes toward finding employment for veterans, and it will be available until $5 million USD is raised for this cause.

This pack includes

·      “The Stripe” Marksman Rifle Weapon Blueprint – Make your opponents see stars with the three-round bursts out of “The Stripe,” which comes complete with multiple pre-configured attachments and a tiger-themed patriotic camo.

·      “The Standard Issue” Pistol Weapon Blueprint – It’s a mainstay for the most elite soldier’s loadouts for good reason. This reliable secondary weapon is complete with several pre-configured attachments.

·      Calling Card – Show off a bit of red and blue tiger camo and your support for helping to place veterans in high quality jobs with this Calling Card. Equip it to your player profile in the Barracks section of Multiplayer or Zombies.

·      Emblem – Equip it in the Barracks section of Multiplayer or Zombies.

·      Weapon Charm – Add a bit of flair with this dog-tag themed weapon charm, which can be equipped to most weapons in the Gunsmith.

·      Sticker – Add the Sticker to nearly any weapon in the game, accessible through the Gunsmith.

·      Double Weapon XP Token – Double your weapon progression speed and unlock attachments in double-time whenever you want with this Double Weapon XP Token. Use it within the Multiplayer or Zombies menu.

Activision’s net proceeds from sales of this pack will support the efforts of the Endowment, which helps veterans find high-quality careers by supporting groups that prepare them for the job market and by raising awareness of the value veterans bring to the workplace.

Confrontation Weapon Pack

Along with the Woods Operator pack* for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare® and WarzoneTM, digital pre-orders also receive the Confrontation Weapons Pack in Black Ops Cold War.

Available immediately once Create-a-Class is unlocked, the Confrontation Weapons Pack includes two rifles stylized to show the cultural divide between East and West Cold War forces.

Representing the U.S.S.R. is the Iron Curtain, an Assault Rifle based on an iconic Soviet heavy-hitting weapon. The other Blueprint, the Western Front, is a three-round burst Tactical Rifle with plenty of patriotic flare. Both Blueprints will include five pre-configured attachments, allowing you to experiment with these attachments before they are unlocked organically on that specific weapon.

These two Blueprints can be found and equipped through the Create-a-Class section of the Loadouts menu.
