Black Ops Cold War open beta, The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer trailer is here, and Treyarch has taken the opportunity to offer a look at a selection of maps coming to the game as part of the multiplayer reveal. From neon-soaked Miami streets to more traditional Call of Duty locations set in far-flung war zones, here’s what the devs have unveiled.
Miami is a night map filled with 80s neon and flashing police lights you’ll be able to have gunfights in the streets while dodging sniper fire, or hit the beach for a sneakier approach to the enemy. Moscow is a traditional three-lane map with more battles in the streets. Satellite, set in the Angola desert, has you fighting around the remains of a central crashed satellite.
Things get wilder on Armada, an ocean map set around two battleships fighting to recover the remains of a lost submarine. Here, opposing players can zipline from ship to ship, or fight in the water and on jet skis. Crossroads, set around a Soviet nuclear convoy in Uzbekistan here, you’ll be able to fight on snowmobiles and in tanks.
The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War release date is set for November 13. For now, you can dig into more details on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War guns to get an early idea of the armaments available in the upcoming game. Black Ops Cold War open beta, you can get an idea of how the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War class system will work ahead of the game’s arrival.
Treyarch has yet to say what exactly will be available in the open beta, but the developer did reveal Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer last night. I wouldn’t be surprised if the new VIP Escort mode is in the beta at least for some part of it.
