Gamescom Opening Night: Perseus Briefing Cinematic Revealed

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

The showcase released a short cinematic into Black Ops: Cold War. The scene focuses on a briefing of Perseus. 

The showcase details the innovation behind Black Ops: Cold War, most notably for allowing players to create customizable in-game characters.

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.

Among those in the room including General Hague, Woods, Mason, and CIA Clandestine Special Officer Russell Adler, an agent close to the Perseus case.

Ronald Reagan later enters the room, permitting a mission to locate and take down the suspected Russian spy, as Mr. Adler gives a stark warning of the threat Perseus presents.

Yesterday, a gameplay trailer was unveiled to give us the first look at Treyarch and Raven’s joint production of Black Ops: Cold War. For those who tuned into Warzone, they’d have noticed a new mode titled Know Your History in the play menu.

Once in a Warzone match (riddled with the now all-too-familiar ‘Know Your History’ messages), as players are instructed to run toward the stadium, the gameplay is interrupted by the arrival of the official trailer.

The description for Black Ops: Cold War explains that players will be dropped into “the dark center of this global conspiracy alongside iconic characters Woods, Mason, and Hudson and a new cast of operatives attempting to stop a plot decades in the making.”

A Zombies mode has been further confirmed, with digital pre-orders open now, and an Early Access Open Beta exclusive to the PS4.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War is due for release on November 13, 2020, and will also feature a worldwide multiplayer event for September 9, as teased in a shorter teaser.
