After months of rumours, Activision has officially revealed that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will arrive for Xbox One on November 13, and will be available for Xbox Series X this Holiday.

The game is a direct sequel to the original Call of Duty: Black Ops from 2010, and will see you battle around the globe alongside iconic characters Woods, Mason and Hudson and a new cast of operatives. The campaign is being developed by veteran studio Raven Software, which has previously assisted on the Call of Duty series.

Furthermore, players will "bring a Cold War arsenal of weapons and equipment into the next generation of Multiplayer and Zombies experiences."

Here's how the website describes the game's multiplayer offerings:

Engage in deniable operations as an elite operative using state of the art tools of the tradecraft across a variety of experiences from small skirmishes to all out, vehicle-fueled warfare.

Uncover dark Cold War experiments that unleash a new Zombie threat to take on in frightening and intense co-operative gameplay with friends.

Call of Duty: Black Ops is available to pre-order right now from the Microsoft Store in three different versions - a Standard Edition exclusively for Xbox One (but playable via backwards compatibility on Xbox Series X), along with Cross-Gen and Ultimate Editions that include an upgrade to the Xbox Series X version when it's released.

Black Ops Cold War will drop fans into the depths of the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical battle of the early 1980s. Nothing is ever as it seems in a gripping single-player Campaign, where players will come face-to-face with historical figures and hard truths, as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Vietnam, Turkey, Soviet KGB headquarters and more.

As elite operatives, you will follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus who is on a mission to destabilise the global balance of power and change the course of history. Descend into the dark center of this global conspiracy alongside iconic characters Woods, Mason and Hudson and a new cast of operatives attempting to stop a plot decades in the making.
