Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Teaser Art Revealed

Official teaser art for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War appears to show American and Soviet forces facing off.


Treyarch has released a piece of key art for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War ahead of its big reveal event next week. The artwork shows gruff-looking soldiers on both sides of the conflict, American and Soviet, overlaid with various pieces of printed propaganda. This is similar in tone to the teaser video released earlier in the week, which featured real-life KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov talking about "active measures" used to destabilize governments. The context of the speech as it compares to the game's actual story remains unclear. In the past, the failed Bay of Pigs invasion has been featured in the series.

Aside from the art, the tweet from Treyarch reiterates the reveal date of August 26 that was already announced in the teaser video. The teaser also suggests the reveal will take place in Verdansk, the fictional city that serves as the map for Call of Duty: Warzone.

That video reveal was from Pawn Takes Pawn, the apparent culmination of a lengthy ARG that laid out puzzles and riddles for fans to uncover. That promotional event included dropping mystery boxes and even fans discovering a nuke. Some fans have speculated that the nuke could be used to reshape the Verdansk map to make it reflect the new Black Ops multiplayer, since Activision has spoken before about the free-to-play battle royale continuing across several annual Call of Duty releases.
