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 Battle.net 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.
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - Standard Edition (£59.99 / $59.99)
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - Cross-Gen Bundle (£64.99 / $69.99)
- Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - Ultimate Edition (£89.99 / $89.99)
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.

Not sure if and when I will buy this CoD. Don't like the small maps and fast play. That's why I like Welfare so much. If the new CoD is like Welfare I will buy it someday, however Cyberpunk is coming also within a week and that is priority for me.
Brilliant event in war zone..well worth checking out
I only play these games for the campaign, but given how short they tend to be I don't find they ever even worth the $60 price, much less the $70 they asking for cross-Gen.
It's like they don't understand, cross Gen is about being able to buy now something no one can play until they buy the expensive console they can't afford right now. Why would they pay even more for the privilege of playung the game again with a few extra enhancements???
I'll grab this game whenever I see it on an extreme sub-$20 discount.
Can't believe they are marking up the games up to 70 dollars for Series X users, It's like a spit in the face for a buying a next gen console..
Man, this is really still a thing, huh?
God I hope the game play isn't like Modern Warfare 2019.
@Tharsman Same here, all I play is the Campaign... I leave them 2 years then pick them up when cheap to do just this...
ShopTo has them up for preorder if you're interest how the prices compare at retail
PS4 £56.85 with a RRP of £59.99
Xbox One £56.85 with a RRP of £59.99
PS5 £59.85 with a RRP of £64.99

@Bmartin001 and locking the free next-gen upgrade behind the limited edition. Bit like NBA 2K21.
Ironically the first company I would expect to pull that crap off, EA......isn't.
I am the same. I only play COD for the campaigns, which makes paying $60 for it tough. I usually just the games much later.
@Jaxx420 give EA a year and they will sell a NextGen upgrade for that Squadrons game.
The problem I have with paying for the series x upgrade is they don’t seem to tell you what upgrade you are getting.
I mean if it’s just 4k 60fps then one x probably might do that, so no way.
But if the upgrade adds also full ray tracing, full 4K all assets, textures Etc, super ultimate high pc settings in every area.
Then maybe it’s worth it.
When I bought COD games, it was for the MP. Haven't bought one since MW2. Although this looks decent, I may pass on this year's entry.
I won't be buying anything from Activision. But I am happy to see them graphics looking good.
