Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War set digital launch sales records for the series when it came out, and the game will likely continue to see strong commercial success, given the live service model the series tends to adopt. The first of its many seasonal content drops is due out soon, though Activision have announced that it will go live a little later than what was originally planned.
Originally scheduled for December 10, it’s been confirmed that Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War will now drop on December 16. Called “the largest free content drop in Black Ops history” season one will bring the integration of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, along with a new Warzone map and mode, the return of 2v2 Gunfight in Black Ops Cold War, new maps, new Zombies mode, new challenges, and more.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In our review, we said, “while the single player campaign has some interesting ideas, Black Ops Cold War is let down by anemic content offerings, a Zombies mode that is starting to show its age, inconsistent map design, and some odd regressions, all of which makes this an unfortunately easy recommendation to skip, at least at launch.” You can read our full review through here.
