We’ve finally got our first look at what Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer and Zombie mode looks like with a new livestream that showcases both online experiences for those that are craving that Black Ops goodness.
Our first look at the Black Ops Cold War multiplayer is footage as seen on the PlayStation 5, which makes sense given that Activision and Sony have had a partnership for years regarding marketing and event timed content.
The newly revealed multiplayer trailer shows off some returning maps but it also highlights the ship-to-ship battles, which look refreshing and highly competitive. Activision also revealed five of the maps players can expect, with the following descriptions below:
Based on Operation Azorian, U.S. and Soviet forces arrive in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean in search of a prototype nuclear submarine. The scale of the Cold War could be tipped in favor of whoever salvages it, whether it be the Soviets reclaiming it or the U.S. intercepting it. Zipline from ship to ship or command gunboats to turn the tide of the fight.
At a pivotal route to Afghanistan deep in Uzbekistan, NATO forces are mobilized to ambush a large Soviet military convoy comprised of mobile ICBM launchers. With the backdrop of a frozen Soviet Wilderness, an MI6 Squadron are ready to combat any Spetsnaz forces in order to secure the top-secret intel held on the convoy, as well as any necessary supplies for future operations. Use tanks to blow up enemy positions or snowmobiles to zip behind the enemy and break their lines.
Through hired DGI forces, Perseus ambushed and assaulted a prison transport in Miami’s famed South Beach in order to free a trusted ally. Amid the cover of night amongst vibrant art-deco architecture and neon lights, CIA special forces have been dispatched to eliminate remaining DGI forces and identify clues to Perseus’ whereabouts.
In the heart of the U.S.S.R, a Spetsnaz squad was sent to a compromised CIA safe house in order to secure the area, capture any remaining CIA operatives, and acquire further intel on NATO’s future plans. Initial reports indicate that the area has gone hot and fighting has spilled out into the streets, prompting a second CIA-JSOC team to arrive at the scene as reinforcements.
Deep in the deserts of Angola, Central Africa, a top-secret, American-made reconnaissance satellite known as the KH-9 has been grounded, potentially by Perseus. Hired DGI forces are searching for the sensitive intel it holds, while NATO’s MI6 Squadron have been dispatched to secure the site and eliminate DGI stragglers
The studio also shared our first look at Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies, which is a feature of the Black Ops games that have always been incredibly beloved by the CoD community. During the live stream event, the Zombies mode was a quick tease, not its own trailer, but it did revealthat both Nacht Der Untoten is back alongside TranZit.
We’ll likely have a Zombies trailer here shortly before the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War release on November 13th.
