Black Ops Cold War 2021 - Gameplay, System Requirements, Price, and Updates

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is the next iteration in the Call of Duty franchise. The game, jointly developed by Treyarch Studios and Raven Software, takes place during the 80s when the Cold War was at its peak.

In addition to bringing back the elements of the Black Ops franchise, popular characters from the franchise also make their return. Alex Mason, Jason Hudson, and Frank Woods come together to stop the impending threat.

Teaming up with CIA operative Russel Adler, who is appointed by President Ronald Reagan, the team uncovers secrets in a bid to stop Soviet agent Perseus, who is at large once again. Together, they must find a way to put an end to his/her schemes in order to prevent a possible global war.

Black Ops Cold War is the seventeenth installment in the series and the sixth in the Black Ops Series.
