This serves as the sixth instalment in the Black Ops series, and the seventeenth instalment in the overall Call of Duty series. The game is Treyarch’s seventh Call of Duty title made as a lead developer and Raven’s second. The game has 3 main modes: campaign, multiplayer and zombies. all of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set during the Cold War in the early 1980s. The story follows Green Beret turned CIA SAD/SOG operative Russell Adler and his mission to stop a USSR extremist group in 1981.
The story is inspired by actual events and the campaign features locations such as East Berlin, Vietnam, Turkey, and the Soviet KGB headquarters. Adler is supported by Call of Duty: Black Ops characters Mason, Woods and Hudson. With new characters being Adler’s MACV-SOG friend Sims, Mossad fixer Lazar, and MI6 officer Park.
Players assume a custom character for the campaign, codenamed “Bell”, with the ability to choose their intelligence agency, skin tone, nationality, and gender; as well as different personality traits that provide in-game perks. The campaign will have multiple endings, dependent on player choice throughout the campaign. The multiplayer revolves around player competing against each other. Now the main interesting part is the zombie mode where players have to fight the zombies. Zombies features a new storyline titled “Dark Aether” which expands on the original Aether story, concluded in Black Ops 4, while also tying to the main narrative of the campaign.
Instead of playing as predefined characters, players can take on the role of Operator characters from Multiplayer, as part of a CIA response team codenamed “Requiem“. Progression and loadouts from Multiplayer are shared with Zombies, as players are able to use any weapon to start a Zombies match, alongside Gunsmith, scorestreaks and field upgrades, in addition to returning mechanics such as wallbuys, the Mystery Box, Pack-a-Punch and past Fan Favourite Perks. For the first time in Zombies, players can opt to “exfile” the map, which will put them in a difficult wave with increased enemy spawn that they must survive before they can escape. So in short words interesting enjoyable fascinating action packed game which is excellent in all fields. Be it action, graphics, gameplay, controls anything. Still if you have played the game do tell us how you liked it!!
