Although it’s been a strange unveil­ing process, Activi­sion final­ly gave a first look at Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War in War­zone a few days ago. This game is a direct sequel to Call of Duty: Black Ops and is sched­uled for release on Novem­ber 13th of this year, with next-gen ver­sions arriv­ing once they are available. 

While there is lit­tle infor­ma­tion on mul­ti­play­er and Zom­bies, we do know the cam­paign is set in the ear­ly 1980’s dur­ing the his­toric Cold War era. You can read every­thing we know about Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, here.

As far as pre-orders and next-gen upgrades are con­cerned, it seems there needs to be some clar­i­fi­ca­tion. Pur­chas­ing the stan­dard edi­tion for the PS4 and Xbox One will not give you access to the next-gen upgrade. How­ev­er, if you pur­chase the Cross-Gen Bun­dle for $70 (or the Ulti­mate Edi­tion), you’ll get the upgrade for free.

PS4 users will also have the choice to upgrade both phys­i­cal and dig­i­tal stan­dard edi­tions of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War through the PlaySta­tion Store (price has­n’t yet been revealed). Accord­ing to Activi­sion, the Xbox One phys­i­cal stan­dard edi­tion will not be eli­gi­ble for an upgrade to the Xbox Series X. Activi­sion is still assess­ing whether the dig­i­tal edi­tion can be upgraded.

For now, check out the pre-order details and list­ings below:
