The official multiplayer reveal for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is supposed to be next week on 9th September, yet it looks like we’re all getting an early preview thanks to a leak from a Twitch streamer. Well, at least until Activision manages to scrub the footage from the internet.
Although it’s hardly high quality, the video shows a Miami-themed map and a 6v6 match, with players required to protect a VIP until extraction. Modern Warzone notes that Cold War’s multiplayer doesn’t appear to have tactical sprint or doors – so no barging into rooms and shaking the building as you would in Modern Warfare. Health bars are visible above enemy heads, and you can expect scorestreaks to make a return.
The game also appears to have higher time to kill (TTK) than Modern Warfare, although that may be a result of watching most of the match through spectator mode.
It’s likely this footage leaked from a preview session for content creators ahead of the multiplayer reveal on 9th September. We’ll have to wait for the full details then, but for now, we do officially know that Black Ops Cold War will share progression with Warzone, and the two will be rather intricately linked.
