A section of multiplayer gameplay from the upcoming Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has been leaked online. Despite the worldwide reveal promising a September 9 premiere date, a visual preview of what’s to come from the Treyarch/Raven production is now live.

Shared on Reddit, the early alpha gameplay gives us a 6v6 match in the streets of a rather lush Miami. The objective of the match is to protect a VIP until they can be extracted. According to Modern Warzone, the multiplayer mode will see the return of scorestreaks, five custom and default classes. While six perks at a time are possible, the notes cite an absence of doors and tactical sprint.

It's fair to say that the developers behind the highly-popular shooter series are not having the best of luck with leaks. Last week, in an altogether separate leak, details emerged suggesting that the beta for Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War would begin on October 8, allowing those who pre-order the digital edition access to the Open Beta, which will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4. 

Leaks concerning the game’s official release and multiplayer launch all came true.

Last week's gamescom Opening Night Live showcased a short cinematic for Black Ops: Cold War. The briefing covers a timeline of Perseus' movements, from stolen information connected to the Manhattan Project, an attempt to steal a nuclear weapon, and most recently, the intelligence of an imminent attack on the West.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is due for release on November 13, 2020. A worldwide multiplayer event is scheduled for September 9. Black Ops Cold War is set in 1981 and features iconic characters, including Woods and Mason. Black Ops Cold War serves as a direct sequel to 2010’s Black Ops, but fills the gaps between the first and second game.
