CoD: Black Ops Cold War Beta Was The Most Downloaded In Franchise History
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War had a very successful beta before its November launch.
The Call of Duty Twitter account said Black Ops Cold War's beta was the most downloaded in franchise history. There are no statistics to corroborate this. The statement also echoes what publisher Activision said in 2019 about Modern Warfare's beta being the "biggest ever in franchise history."
Activision recently detailed Black Ops Cold War's new 40-player game mode called Fireteam. It puts four teams of 10 against each other to complete objectives and engage in skirmishes. Upon death, players can respawn on a teammate, parachute into the map, or spawn in the seat of a teammate's car. This makes it sound reminiscent of the Battlefield 1 mode Conquest.
In other Black Ops Cold War news, developer Treyarch confirmed that the ping system seen in Warzone will make its way to the upcoming Call of Duty game. We also learned about the Zombies mode, as well as got confirmation that it supports cross-play and cross-progression.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13 for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S/X. Check out our Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War preorder guide to learn about the bonuses and editions, as well as how to get the next-gen version.
