Content updates for Black Ops Cold War, as well as Warzone and Modern Warfare are scheduled to occur over the next week. The first of these is an update to Black Ops Cold War, which will be available to download on Tuesday, December 8. This update brings a host of quality-of-life improvements and prepares players for new Season One game content integration.
A pair of content updates (Black Ops Cold War – Dec. 15, Warzone – Dec. 16) will deliver Season One game content for players. Once the second content update becomes available in Warzone, Season One will launch simultaneously across Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
A direct sequel to the original, fan-favorite Black Ops, and set in the early 1980s, Black Ops Cold War drops players into the depth of the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical universe in a gripping experience where nothing is as it seems.
In pure Black Ops style, the new game fuses elements of 1980s pop culture through a mind-bending conspiracy story, where deception and subterfuge are the norm in the gripping single-player Campaign. In this sequel to the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, players encounter historic figures and learn hard truths as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Turkey, Vietnam, Soviet-era Moscow, and more.
As elite operatives, players attempt to stop a plot decades in the making as they follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus, who is on a mission to destabilize the global balance of power and change the course of history. Beyond the Campaign, players will bring a wide selection of Cold War weapons and equipment into the next generation of Multiplayer combat and an all-new Zombies experience.
The title features cross-play support across current and next generation systems with cross progression across all modes. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War also offers a Battle Pass system and delivers a steady stream of free post-launch content, including multiplayer maps and modes, Zombies experiences along with a robust schedule of in-game community events.
