The standard edition of the upcoming shooter won’t support free next-gen upgrades, as per a recent leak.
Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War is just a day away from being fully unveiled, and ahead of that, new information on the game has begun emerging. Recently, thanks to datamining of game files in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone (via Charlie INTEL), the various editions of the upcoming Treyarch-developed shooter that will be available at launch have been leaked.
There’s the standard edition, of course, and beyond that, a Cross-Gen Bundle will also be available, which will give Xbox One and PS4 owners access to the Xbox Series X and PS5 versions of the game as well. That, of course, means that free next-gen upgrades for the game won’t be supported, joining a few other notable games such as Control and NBA 2K21 that are not offering those.
Finally, there’s the Ultimate Edition, which will include the Cross-Gen Bundle, 3 each of Operator skins, weapon blueprints, and vehicle skins, a weapons pack, and a Battle Pass bundle. Pre-ordering any of the three editions will give access to the beta and the Frank Woods Operator in Modern Warfare and Warzone.
Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War will be revealed in full tomorrow within the free-to-play battle royale game Call of Duty: Warzone. You can also expect another look at the game at Gamescom Opening Night Live shortly afterward.
Recently, promotion emails sent out by Activision have confirmed that the game will once again by exclusive to Battle.net on PC. Meanwhile, datamining of Warzone files has also leaked a description for the shooter, revealing that it’s a direct sequel to the first Black Ops.
