The reveal for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer is officially done with and now we’re left with a large number of details to unpack. From weapons and maps to Create-A-Class and Scorestreaks, there’s a lot we’ve heard today. However, we’ve already covered most of the information in previous articles. You can check our Call of Duty hub for all information on multiplayer thus far. Although, there are some additional details that weren’t huge pieces of news but are still worth knowing. Here are some things you may have missed from the Black Ops Cold War multiplayer reveal.
Additional details on Black Ops Cold War multiplayer
For starters, let’s get some of the bigger details out of the way. The rumors from last week were true, as the standard Mini-Map does return in BOCW. Red dots appear when enemies shoot and the entire map is revealed. This is a change from the previous two titles in the series and it’s nice to see the classic map back.
Also returning from a hiatus is Theater Mode, which was sorely missed in Modern Warfare. However, Black Ops Cold War reintroduces the feature. In addition to Theater, the swimming mechanics from Black Ops 3 and 4 return as well. This is accompanied by a similar movement system from Black Ops 4, although some Black Ops 2 is also mixed in there.
Another detail you might’ve not seen include the in-game lobby screen, which @CharlieIntel shows off below.
The progression system
In regards to the progression system in Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch stated that there’s no information on it at this time. However, more details will be revealed in the coming weeks, most likely before the open beta on October 8.
What about Warzone?
Lastly, Warzone will be tied in directly with Black Ops Cold War. Players will keep their ranks from this year and there will also be a progression system that works across Warzone, BOCW, and Modern Warfare. Details on that will also be revealed at a later date.
Now that multiplayer is out in the open, we should hear about more details in the coming weeks. Until then, make sure to stay tuned to Daily Esports for all Call of Duty news.
