The wait has ended and we now have our first real look at Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and just what it will be bringing to the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC this year. November 13th of this year to be more exact with the game dropping on the next-gen systems as soon as they are available. Something that looks absolutely like a blast of a time as we have a new campaign here that will be following up after the events of Call Of Duty: Black Ops and into the early 80s. You know, right around the time that the title of the game states we will be in. Also with all the weapons and gear we would expect to have as we try to foil a global plot across the globe.
This trailer focuses a whole lot on the story for the game and less on the new multiplayer coming to Call Of Duty, so if you are not a fan of the whole experience then you might be left out a bit. This is all captured on a PS5 so it is something to take in for the power of the next-gen systems, but it looks like it will be all campaign with hints at what will be coming to the multiplayer and War Zone after it launches. Maybe a bit more for the post-launch content too as this Call Of Duty title is not going to be left out of that extra bit of cash they can snag up. I am just glad to see that we are going to be getting a campaign again and the rest is all gravy. Even though I know I am the odd one out here.

As elite operatives, players attempt to stop a plot decades in the making as they 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.
