“As elite operatives, you will follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus who is on a mission to destabilize the global balance of power and change the course of history,” Activision’s blurb reads.
“Descend into the dark center of this global conspiracy alongside iconic characters Woods, Mason and Hudson and a new cast of operatives attempting to stop a plot decades in the making.”
Activision said last week that the Black Ops Cold War beta was the most downloaded in Call of Duty history.
It also revealed that the game will release with a PlayStation exclusive, two-player co-operative Zombies mode called Onslaught. While the wider Zombies offering will be available for all platforms at launch, Xbox and PC players won’t be able to play Onslaught until November 1, 2021.
Black Ops Cold War will retail for $70 on next-gen consoles, the publisher has confirmed.
