The Game modes


Zombies mode has made a comeback, if it is closer to Black Ops 1 zombies, it will be a great relief for fans like myself who enjoyed the original style of zombies. We will hopefully get some clarification on this in a future update.


It wouldn’t be a Call of Duty without multiplayer. We will get first details on the game on September 9th, with the open beta first on PS4.


You get to continue the story of Woods, Mason, and Hudson after the events of Black Ops 1. The game takes place in the 1980’s and this time the plot is a lot deeper, more sinister, and tackles a lot of gritty elements that the first game handled spectacularly.

The campaign takes you to East Berlin, Vietnam, Turkey, Soviet KGB, and other locations.

You can also make your own character to play as in the campaign. This will make it so that the experience feels more personal.

In addition, the game will also feature multiple endings. Based on your decisions and other factors during your time in the campaign. Options such as dialog choices, story paths, etc. Similar to Black Ops 2.


Warzone will carry over to the PS5 and Xbox Series X, whether adjusting to the weapons of Black Ops Cold War or sticking to its Modern Warfare guns is still a mystery. Perhaps we will learn more at the upcoming Multiplayer reveal.
