Black Ops Cold War Launch Trailer Details the Game’s Story

The newest trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War shows the Black Ops gang fighting Communist forces all around the world

Virtual Ronald Reagan needs you! Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has dropped its official launch trailer, offering a cinematic look at Woods and the rest of the Black Ops cast as they travel around the world blowing things up.

As the game’s title implies, this entry into the Call of Duty franchise takes place during the Reagan era of the Cold War, when the U.S spread its influence around the world to keep Communist superpowers at bay and suppress other left-wing governments, like Afghanistan’s. In this fictional version of the era, a mysterious new force threatens to upset the balance of the Cold War and the fate of the world, leaving Woods and the rest of his team to find and neutralize this threat.

We already know a fair bit about Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The game’s multiplayer will be pretty different from last year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, for better and worse. From launch, you’ll also be able to play with friends across consoles and console generations, so no matter what you or your friends pick up this November, you’ll be able to play CoD together. And of course, zombies are coming back to Call of Duty. Sporting an ’80s theme, it’s the same zombie mode that players know and love, albeit with some changes. Players in Zombies will have access to field upgrades that provide passive buffs and healing items during the game, and will also be able to play with anyone they want thanks to cross-platform and cross-gen capabilities with both PC and consoles.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to release on November 13 for the PS5, Xbox Series X / S, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
