Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War - Everything you need to know!

Welcome to 1981, welcome to the Cold War! With Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Activision and Treyarch continue the Black Ops series. Cold War is the direct sequel to the original 2010 Black Ops. Get up to speed with our handy recap guide while you wait!

What is Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War?

The early 1980s were a time of uncertainty. Nobody could predict how the conflict between the USA and the Soviet Union would develop. The threat of a possible nuclear war was constantly present. It is precisely these disputes that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War brings to the forefront, sending you into a geopolitical battle that sees you waging around the globe.

A mysterious adversary named Perseus seeks to further fuel the seething cauldron. A global conspiracy is looming on the horizon and you are in the midst of the political confusion of the Cold War with well-known Black Ops protagonists as an elite force. Fight alongside Black Ops returning favourites like Woods, Mason and Hudson. Recruit new henchmen and experience an exciting single player campaign, some of which is based on real events and even brings historical characters into play, like former US President Ronald Regan. Stop Perseus from plunging the world into chaos!


In Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, players will fight across the globe in crucial locations. The Cold War takes you to Vietnam, East Berlin, Miami, Turkey and the Soviet KGB headquarters. As usual for a Call of Duty of this calibre, you can expect a cinematic narrative of the campaign that is set in the 1980's era. And once you've completed the single player mode, the various multiplayer modes will of course be just as action-packed, be it the new Fireteam mode, Deathmatch, Hardpoint or Domination multiplayer. The popular Zombies mode is also back on the line with updated gameplay and allowing for players to use their unlockable weapons in the mode - gone are the lackluster starting weapons!

The PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War deserves special attention. For this version Treyarch has reached deep into the bag of tricks, whereby PC Features guarantee the best Cold War experience. With the right computing power, you get the finest 4K graphics and much higher frame rates, with the option of sophisticated ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS technologies, cross-play functionality and support for ultra-wide/multi-monitor setups.
