‘Call of Duty Black Ops.
We already have it among us. While a few days ago Activision announced the name and setting of its new shooter, ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War‘, it was not until today that the studio has unveiled its first official trailer with in-game images and its release date. And there is not too much left to hit the market, as the new ‘Call of Duty’ will arrive on PS4, Xbox One and PC next Friday. November 13.
As they already indicated with the premiere of the first trailer a few days ago, the new game, developed by Treyarch and Raven, will be set in the Cold War. In fact, it will be a direct sequel to ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’. The game will feature a campaign mode in which we will go through scenarios in East Berlin, Vietnam and Turkey, as well as the headquarters of the Soviet KGB. As well the zombies are back, which will have its own dedicated mode.
During the game we will see some familiar faces, such as Woods, Madson and Hudson, and we can access a whole arsenal of weapons from the Cold War. About the gameplay, the game aims to stay true to its roots, but there is not much more information at the moment. To know the news of the multiplayer mode, and perhaps the first gameplay, we will have to wait a little more, until September 9.
As for the story, the game will have different endings depending on the decisions we make. In addition, it will be the first ‘Call of Duty’ that will allow us to customize our character before starting, so we can choose the gender, identity, history, etc.
