Leaked Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War Multiplayer Footage Shows a New Game Mode and Map
Early footage of Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War's multiplayer also shows some of the gameplay changes we can expect
Ahead of its official reveal next week on September 9, footage of Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War‘s multiplayer has leaked online.
Posted to Reddit a short time ago, the footage shows most of a multiplayer match in a new game mode where one team has to defend VIPs while the other tries to extract them. It all takes place on a map seemingly based on Miami. It’s not likely that this video will be up long, Activision is pretty good at cleaning up leaks, so check out this new footage while you can.
Besides a new game mode, there are a host of other gameplay changes, most notably a change in time to kill. Between last year’s Modern Warfare and Cold War, players have received a massive health boost, so get ready for more bullet-spongey enemies. Other major changes include a downed state for players in multiplayer matches similar to Warzone, and health bars, which appear above players’ heads.
Otherwise, multiplayer in Cold War looks a lot like Modern Warfare. The game has the same emphasis on quick, fluid movement as last year’s entry in the franchise, and gunplay doesn’t seem to have changed radically. Of course, this is all gleaned from a fairly low-quality video on Reddit – we’ll get more official info on Cold War‘s multiplayer during next week’s reveal.
Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War is set to release on November 13 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game will also release again alongside next-gen consoles when they eventually go on sale.
