The iconic Black Ops
series is back with Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War - the direct
sequel to the original and fan-favourite Call of Duty®: Black Ops.
Black Ops Cold War will drop fans into the depths of the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical battle of the early 1980s. Nothing is ever as it seems in a gripping single-player Campaign, where players will come face-to-face with historical figures and hard truths, as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Vietnam, Turkey, Soviet KGB headquarters and more.
As elite operatives, you will follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus who is on a mission to destabilize the global balance of power and change the course of history. Descend into the dark center of this global conspiracy alongside iconic characters Woods, Mason and Hudson and a new cast of operatives attempting to stop a plot decades in the making.
Beyond the Campaign, players will bring a Cold War arsenal of weapons and equipment into the next generation of Multiplayer and Zombies experiences.
Welcome to the brink. Welcome to Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War.
19-09-2020: Update Physical Standard Edition – PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
Next-generation upgrade options
Both current generation versions (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) will be playable on their respective next-generation console via backwards compatibility by inserting the disc into the console. But, the game will not include any of the next-generation features, such as higher framerate, hardware based ray-tracing, faster load times and more.
Can I upgrade the current generation physical disc version of Black Ops Cold War to work on a discless next-gen console?
A physical Standard Edition disc to digital next generation upgrade will not operate with a discless console. If you choose to upgrade your physical PlayStation 4 disc to the digital version of the game on PlayStation 5, the physical PlayStation 4 disc must be inserted into the PlayStation 5 disc drive in order for the PlayStation 5 version of the game to play.
If I buy a physical copy of Black Ops Cold War on PlayStation 4, upgrade it to the digital version on PlayStation 5 and then lend or sell the physical copy, can I still play the digital PlayStation 5 version of the game I’ve downloaded?
No. For the digital PlayStation 5 version of the game to play, you must have the PlayStation 4 disc inserted into the disc drive of the PlayStation 5.
