Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has been lurking on the horizon for a while now. The developers behind the new CoD game, Treyarch, have added some new things into the mix, a fresh Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War trailer and new features for the multiplayer aspect of the game. In the action packed trailer, you get to see a bit of where you get to go in the new Call of Duty world as well as some of the things you can do.  Toward the end of the trailer, we get to see a glimpse of zombies, hinting at a zombies mode for this new game as well.  Without spending too much time on the trailer, though, let us dive into some of what the blog post said. As the Activision blog puts it,... Read more...
Ronald Reagan is president, tensions with the Soviet Union are uncomfortably high, and the global population at large is threatened by the reality that a nuclear war could break out at any moment. The world has already lived through this scenario, and it is happening once again, though thankfully this time it is just the setting for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which launches in a few months. Raven Software is working on the game's immersive single-player campaign, while Treyarch is handling the multiplayer experience. Ahead of the game's release, publisher Activision shared the first cinematic trailer, and it is certainly gripping. Have a look (you can watch in up to 4K)... "Taking place... Read more...
We're already a bit more than halfway through 2020, and expectations are that a new Call of Duty game will be announced this year. While no official announcement has been made so far, the game is reportedly called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The very first hints at some of the features in the game have surfaced thanks to a dataminer sifting through the code for a pre-beta build of a game called "The Red Door" that was posted to the Microsoft store last week. A dataminer going by Prototype Warehouse was able to download the files posted for "The Red Door" and has revealed some of the findings gleaned from the code. Those findings give a few details on the Call of Duty game's campaign, multiplayer,... Read more...
It looks like the next Call of Duty game will take a step back in history. As is now tradition, the next game’s name has already leaked. It was recently revealed that the upcoming game will be called Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Leaker “Okami” posted what appears to be the cover art of the next Call of Duty game on Twitter. Activision has yet to confirm the title, but other sources have contended that the leak is true. The game will likely be released this autumn and will hopefully be formally announced within the next month or so. The Cold War theme has also been teased in Call of Duty: Warzone. Locked bunkers have appeared in the game and players can now access them... Read more...
A rumor has been making the rounds that claims Treyarch and Activision will reboot another beloved game in the Call of Duty franchise next year. The rumor claims that Call of Duty: Black Ops will get the reboot treatment. The game is alleged to be called either Call of Duty: Black Ops 5 or Call of Duty: Black Ops. The game is reportedly set in the Cold War era and includes content from both the Korean and Vietnam Wars in its stories. The original Black Ops game was set in 1961 and 1968 and wrapped military action and political aspects of the era into the game. However, one leak claims that the game will span over 40 years. The rumor claims that the game will be more gritty and gruesome than the... Read more...
Some Xbox gamers who received a shiny new Xbox One X for Christmas and a copy of Black Ops 4 have discovered something very annoying. Reports have surfaced that the game on the Xbox One X console is crashing when players near the end of a match. Treyarch has now stepped up and confirmed the problem and says that it is actively working on a fix for the crash issue. This isn't the first complaint from gamers that Treyarch has had to address. In October it also had to confront complaints about server performance. Treyarch took to Twitter to try and calm owners of the game facing the crash issue. Treyarch said that it was aware of an "intermittent freeze issue during late-game play in Blackout."... Read more...
Like most developers getting ready to launch a major AAA game title, Treyarch, developer of the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 game that launched this month, held a beta and used that feedback to improve the game. Black Ops 4 earned rave reviews from the players who participated in that beta for its gameplay and the speedy nature of the servers hosting the game. However, players have been upset because when the game launched, the performance of the network hosting the online-only game wasn't up to the same standards as the network hosting the beta. During the beta period, the servers for the game were reported to be operating at 60Hz, but after launch, the servers are operating... Read more...
When can you pretty much guarantee that the multiplayer part of a certain game is more popular than its single-player campaign? When the publisher decides to release an MP-only "starter pack", of course. That's exactly what Activision has just done with Call of Duty: Black Ops III. It's no secret that the Call of Duty series is one of the most popular destinations for gaming on Earth, with each release selling in quantities that are enviable by every other developer and publisher out there. So why, then, would Activision risk hurting its sales by releasing an MP-only pack? By stripping many features and capping the level - those crafty buggers! But what else can we expect for the asking price... Read more...
Yesterday, we received great news from Activision with the formation of the Call of Duty World League, which will launch in January 2016. Today, however, we’re getting some not-so-great news for owners of last generation Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gaming consoles. Treyarch announced today that the Xbox 360 and PS3 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will not feature a single-player campaign mode. Treyarch explains that “delivering the best possible gameplay experience on all platforms is always our highest priority,” but that it “could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware.” “With that in mind, Black Ops 3 PS3 and Xbox 360 players can continue to look forward to a new experience...

After a string of disappointing game launches (some of which were possibly made worse by inadequate testing), it’s good to see Activision and developer Treyarch running a large-scale beta ahead of its Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 release. Scott Lowe of Activision announced this week that that the companies will run a worldwide multiplayer beta starting next month, giving it plenty of time to work out any kinks before the official November 6 release date. “During the beta, fans will have an opportunity to try the new momentum-based, chained movement system, find the perfect Specialist to fit their play style, get a feel for the new multiplayer maps and more,” Lowe wrote in a blog post. So what are... Read more...
Let's face it: if there's one aspect of gaming that's a bit lacking, it's zombies. To help remedy this obvious void, Call of Duty: Black Ops II developer Treyarch is packing-in a zombie-filled story mode in its upcoming DLC, dubbed "Uprising". If you're already familiar with the base game (which we reviewed at launch), then you're no doubt aware that there already exists a mode for the zombie-killer in all of us. But there was no real story to speak of there, which some considered to be its primary flaw. Uprising includes four multiplayer maps including a reinvisioning of "Firing Range" (now called Studio), with its zombie portion called Mob of the Dead - where "mob" refers to the mobster playable...
