The official reveal for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War takes place tomorrow (August 26th) inside Call of Duty: Warzone, but it looks we've already discovered quite a lot about the game via a leaked description.
As reported by Charlie Intel, the description (discovered within the Modern Warfare game files) states that Black Ops Cold War will be a direct sequel to the original game in the series:
The iconic Black Ops series is back with Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War – the direct sequel to the original and fan-favorite Call of Duty®: Black Ops.
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 destabilize 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.
Beyond the Campaign, players will bring a Cold War arsenal of weapons and equipment into the next generation of Multiplayer and Zombies experiences.
Welcome to the brink. Welcome to Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War.
Furthermore, the same website is reporting that there will be three versions of the game available - a Standard Edition, a Cross-Gen Edition, and an Ultimate Edition, suggesting that you'll need to purchase at least the Cross-Gen Edition in order to access a next-gen upgrade on Xbox Series X. We'll update you with all the official details tomorrow!
