Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Campaign Gameplay, Alpha Dates Revealed

During the September 2020 PlayStation 5 Showcase, Raven Software revealed more of what’s to come in the campaign for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. In addition to an extended look at the campaign, it was announced that PS4 players will be able to play the multiplayer alpha for free this weekend.

In the livestream, creative director Dan Vondrak at Raven Software introduced the new gameplay for the campaign mission “Nowhere Left To Run,” which takes place in an isolated airport runway in Turkey. We see returning characters Woods and Mason attempt to assassinate a high-priority target. During the ensuing battle, we see the familiar, COD-style gunfights and gadgets on full display. We even see the return of the fan-favorite RC-XD, which is used to disable an entire cargo plane.

While Treyarch will still be heading up Black Ops Cold War, the campaign is being handled by Raven, which served as a support developer for past games. This new gameplay is the most comprehensive look we’ve had of the campaign so far. You can watch the full presentation above.

In addition to the new gameplay, Vondrak revealed that PS4 users will be able to download and play the multiplayer alpha this weekend. Access will be free (with exceptions in Germany and Japan) and will run from September 18-20. You’ll be able to pre-load the alpha beginning at 8 AM PT on September 17. This will be the first chance to play the Black Ops Cold War multiplayer early; there is a multiplayer beta scheduled for October.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to release on November 13. See below for more news from the showcase, including the PlayStation 5 price and release date.
