Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Confirmed


Activision has confirmed the new Call Of Duty: Black Ops for this year along with a teaser promising a reveal next week.

This news was confirmed via an unlisted trailer showing real footage of the Cold War and a chilling warning from KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov.

The trailer is based on the famous warning of Yuri Bezmenov which explains the tactics used to undermine governments called “Active Measures”. These include demoralization, destabilization, crisis, and normalization.

The video is set against footage of various wars and civil unrest. He also talks about “Perseus,” the code name of a Soviet spy who allegedly infiltrated Western intelligence agencies as part of an effort to subvert US efforts in the nuclear arms race—and whose identity was never discovered. This all concludes with a warning that those who do not know their history will be doomed to repeat it.

The trailer doesn’t give us anything regarding actual gameplay, and nothing much about the game itself, except a name (Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War) and a worldwide reveal date of the 26th of August.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Confirmed

What we do know is that the game will be set during the Cold War between the United States and the USSR. We also know that Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War will be developed by both Treyarch and Raven. Recent reports claim that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be released sometime in October or November and will introduce a new Call of Duty: Warzone map, a new zombie’s mode, and a full campaign of its own. Judging from the footage seen in the first trailer, there will undoubtedly be a robust story-driven campaign.

Activision confirmed that Cold War will include the popular free-to-play Warzone mode as well. Recent Rumours have suggested that Activision would use Warzone to make its next Call Of Duty announcement, which has been supported by comments from the companies president Rob Kostich. He recently said that Warzone had caused the company to “rethink how, when, and where we reveal our upcoming title.”

Activision has been teasing a new Call Of Duty game quite recently despite assuring us that a new shooter would be released this year already. Then in August Activision began sending out mysterious slideshow projectors that led the gaming community on an alternate reality game that eventually uncovered a mysterious website that played news clips from the 1960s.

We will keep you updated as the news comes in for this exciting new CoD installment.
