Black Ops is back as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on Xbox One, Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC
You can trust Activision and Call of Duty to make a mark whenever a new generation of gaming consoles is unveiled and that is the case here and now. Yep, Call of Duty is back. Black Ops is Back. And it’s time to immerse yourself in a Cold War.
Available to purchase and download right now from all the usual digital stores, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is the latest in the ever-increasingly lengthy line of Call of Duty titles, releasing on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC to once more deliver the blockbusting signature cutscenes and class-leading gameplay to the gaming masses. And it’s moments like that which ensure it was included in our pick of the Xbox games out in November.
Priced at £59.99 for the Standard Edition, and then moving up in price as you get access to extra goodies, Cold War whisks us away to the early 1980’s, dropped slap bang into the middle of the most volitile war – the Cold War.
Complete with a single player campaign that promises to pull out all the stops as we get treated to time with some of the most iconic of historical figures and some of the hardest truths, this will take us around the globe, dropping in on Germany, Vietnam, Turkey and the Soviet KGB GQ.
Yet whilst the solo campaign really does look set to deliver some of the most frantic shooting moments in recent gaming history, many will be looking to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s other gameplay options – namely the Multiplayer experience and that of Zombies. It wouldn’t be Call of Duty without those, would it!
If you’re set for a lifetime in the Black Ops and reckon that the Cold War is the experience you’ve been waiting on, there are other options away from the Standard Edition of the game. These see the £64.99 Cross-Gen Bundle sort you out with both the Xbox One and the Xbox Series X versions of the game, alongside the addition of the Confrontation Weapons Pack. Further still is the Ultimate Edition for a cool £89.99. This covers the bases of that of the Cross-Gen Bundle, but then also adds in the Land, Sea and Air Pack with a trio of Operator Skins, Vehicle Skins and Weapon Blueprints. It gets better with the inclusion of the Battle Pass Bundle too – that in itself will sort you out with the 1 Season Battle Pass and no less than 20 Tier Skips.
As a direct sequel to the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is possibly the most anticipated Call of Duty title for years. We’ll have a full review for you in the coming days, but for now grab your copy from the digital store of your choosing. You should find it on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and PC.
