Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War – PS5 Gameplay, PS4 Exclusive Alpha Revealed
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War today showed off new campaign gameplay running on PS5, and PlayStation 4 players will get exclusive access to an alpha of the game’s multiplayer, starting this Friday, September 18.
Revealed at September’s PS5 event, and showing the game’s first mission, ‘Nowhere Left to Run’, set in Turkey, players take control of Alex Mason, working alongside returning hero Frank Woods and new ally Russell Adler. It’s a varied mix of action and stealth, showing off the game’s next-gen looks.
Initially, we see slow-motion sniper shots, a lot of gunplay, and a finisher move that involves sticking a grenade in a man’s pocket and pushing him away. That’s followed by a car chase, and a remote control car chase, with the action set-piece ending you might expect from a CoD game. The PS Blog confirms that this is just a portion of the full mission.
We also learned that PS4 will get an exclusive alpha test for Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer this weekend, “complete with multiple modes, maps, and a preview of the Create-a-Class and Scorestreak systems.” You can pre-load the game tomorrow, September 17 at 8 am Pacific, with the alpha beginning on September 18 at 10 am Pacific and closing on September 20 at 10 am Pacific.
