According to a leak, the beta for Call Of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War may begin on October 8, (if proven true). The leak was noted by players on Call Of Duty: WWII and the Arabic version of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, (courtesy of COD Tracker), within their respective in-game stores.

The description reads that pre-ordering the digital edition will give players access to the Open Beta on October 8, exclusive to the PS4.

A recent datamine leak from COD Tracker suggested that Black Ops: Cold War would be a direct sequel to 2010’s Black Ops. It would also feature a zombies mode and multiplayer. This was on August 25.

Elsewhere, in a separate leak, the ModernWarzone Twitter account indicated a release date for November 13, and a multiplayer reveal for September 9. All of the above came true. Of course, this doesn’t confirm this most recent leak will too. However, it wouldn’t be surprising if it did.

Recently, new details were revealed from the Gamescom Opening Night Live showcase for Call Of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War. Cold War is set in 1981, featuring iconic characters including Woods and Mason, serving as a direct sequel to 2010’s Black Ops.

This new game is undoubtedly highly innovative, most notably for making characters entirely customizable, with only the players’ imagination limiting what can be achieved.

The showcase unveiled a short sequence from Black Ops: Cold War. In a briefing room, a discussion mounts into the existence of the mysterious spy, Perseus, an agent responsible for infiltrating Western Intelligence to subvert the U.S in a bid to win the Arms Race.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War is due for release on November 13, 2020.
