It looks like some gameplay footage of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has gone live a little earlier than expected. Last night, a Twitch streamer briefly showed off a firefight in a Miami-based level, showing two squads of six players both fighting over an MVP.
You can see the gameplay snippet below (assuming Activision hasn't filed a DMCA against the channel by now). One team of six attempts to get their team MVP to one of two exfil zones for extraction, while the other team attempts to guard both points until they either kill the MVP, or time expires.
It's a pretty tense mode on a decidedly smaller map. There's the option for team revives for downed allies, and you'll also note a health bar appearing above enemy players. There's a clear absence of a tactical sprint ability as well.
This all comes before the full reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's multiplayer aspect, which Activision previously revealed will take place on September 9. Taking the above footage into account, we can pretty safely expect influencers and streamers to have played Black Ops Cold War's multiplayer ahead of the reveal, so expect plenty of hands-on gameplay clips to go live around the reveal.
Last week, we got an extended look at Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's campaign. We found out that you'll actually be able to play the campaign as a gender neutral soldier (can't wait for Ronald Reagan to ask us to commit war crimes using our correct pronouns) and we had an interview with developer Treyarch about the sequel's choice-driven campaign.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It'll be coming to both PS5 and Xbox Series X at a later date, and when it does, both next-gen versions will see a slight price increase, retailing for $69.99 each.
