Call of Duty Black Ops Warzone: Great news for Cold War gamers
Call of Duty is set to continue supporting Warzone in a big way when Black Ops Cold War is released in November.
Activision confirmed as much today via its big multiplayer reveal event for the new COD title.
The good news is that Call of Duty Warzone will live on past Modern Warfare, and will continue to receive new content updates.
And this won’t mean a wipe of the current arsenal available across Verdansk on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Warzone gamers will keep everything they have already unlocked and will be able to add new stuff from Black Ops Cold War.
And if anyone was worried, there will be no return of the old-style of Season Pass expansions.
This means that all future updates for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War will stay in line with what we saw in Modern Warfare.
A message from Activision explains: “Warzone will continue to evolve after the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, interweaving some of Black Ops Cold War’s themes, weapons, and operators into this blockbuster free-to-play Battle Royale experience.
“Specifically, both games will share post-launch seasonal content through the return of the Battle Pass system and the Store, as well as share a progression system.
“At launch, Black Ops Cold War is set to include a brand-new leveling journey that will later connect to Warzone, allowing players to unlock new functional content to be used in both titles. In addition, both games are set to share post-launch seasonal content through the return of the Battle Pass system and the Store.
“On top of all new Black Ops Cold War content, Warzone players will still have access to previously earned content: Weapons, Operators, Blueprints, Equipment, Cosmetics, and so on, that they earned during their experiences in Modern Warfare.
“Please note that previously earned Modern Warfare content is only available and usable in Modern Warfare and Warzone.”
Here’s a rundown of what’s changing and what’s staying the same in Call of Duty Warzone:
Those who earned Modern Warfare items in Modern Warfare or Warzone will retain their content when Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War arrives this November.
All new Black Ops Cold War functional content, such as base weapons and attachments, can be unlocked by playing Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
The Battle Pass System will continue to include free tiers, similar to the Modern Warfare Battle Pass system, which will include new base weapons in addition to other categories of items players can earn simply by playing the game
Battle Passes will launch in tandem with post-launch live seasons, which will include themed content that matches each season’s narrative.
Players can see the content they will earn or buy through the Battle Pass or Store.
The Battle Pass and Store will feature a variety of cosmetic content, including Operators, Weapons, Blueprints, Player Identity items, and more.
There will not be a Season Pass model. Post-launch Multiplayer maps and modes will be free and given to all players simultaneously on all platforms.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will continue this concept through a collaborative effort across multiple studios: Treyarch and Raven Software, along with additional support from High Moon Studios, Beenox, Activision Shanghai, Demonware, and Sledgehammer Games.
