Activision have finally announced Black Ops Cold War, but when can you get into the action?

We're excited to get into Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch's 2020 edition of Call Of Duty, and the future of its multiplayer and Warzone content. Pre-orders are open already and we're seeing the first glimpses of gameplay.

When does Black Ops Cold War release?

The full release of Black Ops Cold War is on Friday November 13th 2020.

Early access for PS4 owners is coming soon for Black Ops Cold War as leaked in Call Of Duty WWII. Xclusive Ace put together a handy roundup of all the information.

The early access beta is available on Thursday October 8th on PS4.

This will be playable for all PS4 players who have digitally preordered the game.

After this phase, an open beta will be available prior to the full release date, and we'll have more information for you when we know more.

The current-gen versions of Black Ops Cold War will be backwards compatible with next-gen too, so you'll be able to play the PS4 version on PS5 and the Xbox One version on Xbox Series X. This is not the same as having the actual next-gen version, available by pre-ordering the Cross-Gen Bundle, but you'll still be able to play it alongside current-gen counterparts.

While we don't know when the specific timings for other releases, we do know the Open Beta will release on PS4 first according to the official Black Ops Cold War website's pre-order options, it'll be available on Xbox and PC at least a few days after Playstation.
