With one day left until the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch rolled out a lengthy recap of everything you need to know before you dive into the next CoD.
"Starting on Day One, you’ll have new maps to play, more game modes in both Core and Hardcore playlists, new weapons and Create-a-Class content, more Perks, more Scorestreaks, a new Seasonal Prestige system, new Challenges, and other new features to enjoy", the dev wrote.
If you've been part of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's beta, the following list is all you need to know, as it lists all the new features added since the beta:
- Prestige progression system
- Challenges for Campaign, Multiplayer & Zombies
- Unlockable Weapon Camos
- New player & weapon customization
- Combat Record
- Finishing Moves
- Weapon Inspect
- Music Player
- Theater mode
- MP bots + more
As far as additional modes go, the following have been added since the game's beta:
- Search & Destroy
- Hardcore Team Deathmatch
- Hardcore Domination
- Hardcore Kill Confirmed
- Hardcore Search & Destroy
- Hardcore Free-For-All
When it comes to guns, Treyarch did quite a bit of balancing, reducing SMG effectiveness at range, tuning AR performance closer to Krig 6 and XM4 Beta performance, increasing LMG damage output, etc.
They also added the following guns:
- FFAR 1 assault rifle
- Bullfrog SMG
- M60 LMG
- DMR 14 tactical rifle
- M79 special launcher
- + more
Now, we're not sure whether the "more" part means Treyarch have some surprises, or they're referring to the weapons they will add once Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches, but we'll know soon enough.
