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:
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Pre-Order Bonuses

PS4 players will get access to the beta at least five days before PC and Xbox One users.
