Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War includes plenty of tried and true game modes such as Domination and Team Deathmatch, but it also introduces a new mode that emphasizes teamwork, objective-based gameplay, and creativity. The Fireteam format is a new multiplayer category where up to 40 players split into groups of four and complete objectives.
In one Fireteam game mode called Dirty Bomb, players must collect uranium from across a large map and deliver them to designated bomb locations. These modes and the action will vary depending on the map you’re playing, and it should feel different from any other Call of Duty experience to date. It’s also separate from the large-scale Combined Arms mode, which is essentially the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s Ground War mode.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War should have plenty of players regardless of the platform you’re playing on, as the game features cross-platform and cross-generational multiplayer for everyone. The open beta will eventually be available to all platforms but will begin October 8 as a PlayStation exclusive.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It will also be available on Xbox Series X and S as well as PS5. Read our thoughts on what we played of the multiplayer thus far.
