The Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War release date has been set for 13 November, with a number of different editions detailed. One of those, at a cost, will also offer a next-gen upgrade path.
Today, three versions were detailed — Standard, Cross-gen and Ultimate — and the latter two will provide access to the game on both Xbox Series X and PS5 from Xbox One and PS4 respectively.
The Standard Edition on Xbox One and PS4 is priced at $59.99 USD ($99.95 AUD) and will be playable in backwards compatible mode on next-gen console equivalents. The Cross-gen bundle is set at $69.99 USD ($109.95 AUD for the digital equivalent) and provides access to each specific version on each platform, while the Ultimate Edition also includes this and more for $89.99 USD ($149.95 AUD for the digital equivalent). It’s frankly all very confusing, so there’s an FAQ on it all here.
Those who pre-order will receive access to the game’s multiplayer open beta alongside the Woods Operator pack. Activision Blizzard and Treyarch also confirmed Cold War will feature a Battle Pass, free post-launch content and features like a campaign and Zombies mode.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War heads to Windows PC via Battle.net, Xbox One and PS4 on 13 November; a next-gen release follows on Xbox Series X and PS5 at their launches.
