During the NVIDIA event on Sept. 1, the company confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will support ray tracing, digital lighting, and more on the PC version of the game.

Ray tracing is the star of the show once more, and in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War the team has gone all out to further immerse players in the game environments with RTX. Check out our world exclusive preview of RTX powered by GeForce RTX.

Here’s some screenshots:

The event presentation also had a new trailer showcasing new gameplay from Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on PC with some of the new NVIDIA technology shown in action.

In addition, NVIDIA has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and Call of Duty: Warzone will also be supporting the new Reflex Lower Latency Mode on PC. Here’s a video showing it in action for Valorant.

Call of Duty’s multiplayer remains one of the world’s most popular, with millions of fans playing worldwide, and so for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, and Call of Duty: Warzone, we are working with Activision to incorporate our new NVIDIA Reflex technology. NVIDIA Reflex optimizes system latency in competitive games, making gameplay more responsive, giving you a competitive edge.

“With the GeForce RTX 30 Series, we’ve been able to expand our ability to realistically immerse players into our game world with the integration of ray tracing features,” said Mark Gordon, Co-Studio Head at Treyarch. “We’re also excited about the introduction of NVIDIA DLSS, which will level up performance. We look forward to continuing our commitment to Call of Duty® PC players everywhere.”

Lastly, the game will support NVIDIA’s new DLSS 2.0 feature.

With Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War leveraging stunning ray tracing tech, it will also feature our critically acclaimed NVIDIA DLSS technology, which uses AI processing Tensor Cores on GeForce RTX GPUs to accelerate frame rates, so you can experience games at the highest detail levels and resolutions.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available November 13 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. PC version is available on Blizzard Battle.net.

How to get Price ’84 Operator in Black Ops Cold War & Warzone

Published

on

The Black Ops & Modern Warfare worlds collide as Captain Price arrives in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War & Warzone.

Activision has announced that the new Captain Price ’84 Operator will be available for FREE for everyone who already owns Black Ops Cold War at the start of Season 3.

Players will simply have to log in and be able to access Captain Price ’84 in both Warzone & Black Ops Cold War after the Season 3 launch on April 22.

The Operator will be useable in both Black Ops Cold War MP & Zombies and Warzone, but players will need to use the Operator in Black Ops Cold War MP online first before it becomes accessible in Warzone.

That Operator is none other than Price ‘84, propelled into the Cold War era and outfitted in tactical gear suited for the most clandestine of wetwork operations.

How to unlock

Those who purchase any version of Black Ops Cold War at the start of Season Three will receive the Price ’84 Operator for use in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Plus, anyone who already owns Black Ops Cold War will automatically receive the Price ’84 Operator at the start of Season Three.

Simply log into Black Ops Cold War following the Season Three Update to add Price ’84 to your roster of elite Operators. You will need to go online in Black Ops Cold War first before he appears as a playable character in Warzone.

Activision states that the Price ’84 Operator is a different Operator from the Modern Warfare Price Operator.

Six weapons including PPSH arrive in Cold War & Warzone with Season 3

Six new weapons, including fan favorite PPSH SMG & Ballistic knife arrive in Season 3.

Published

on

Treyarch has unveiled six new weapons are coming to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War & Warzone with Season 3.

As part of the announce blog post for Season 3, the studio revealed a look at the new weapons planned for Season 3 of Cold War & Warzone.

Some of the weapons will be part of the Battle Pass and be included at launch, while others will come during the season and unlocked via bundles or challenges.

Here’s a breakdown of the 6 new weapons:

Six New Weapons

PPSh-41: SMG (Launch Week)

When you need to spit fire, pick up the PPSh-41 SMG, an absolute classic in the series. Though its damage per shot is moderate, its rapid-fire, high-capacity capabilities encourage an aggressive playstyle ideal for leading the charge in objective modes and clearing out tight spaces in Warzone.

Obtain the PPSh-41 for free, ready to use in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone at Tier 15 of the Season Three Battle Pass.

Swiss K31: Sniper Rifle (Launch Week)

Precision and power. The Swiss K31 Sniper Rifle was made for one neutral country ready to rearm for world war, but will now find itself in the arsenals of the NATO and Warsaw Pact forces. This bolt-action sniper rifle boasts exceptional accuracy, as well as fast rechamber and aiming speeds with a large ammo capacity. Aggressive sharpshooters will be in their element with this new rifle, whether it’s sniping out in the wilds of Warzone or pushing forward on objectives in Black Ops Cold War.

Ballistic Knife: Melee (Launch Week)

A versatile weapon first introduced in the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, this iteration of the Ballistic Knife is a rare piece of spy technology developed in the late 1970s by Soviet Forces.

The spring-action knife launcher can either be used as a melee weapon or to silently fire lethal retrievable blades. It is most effective at short ranges, but the most skilled Operators could theoretically land a deadly hit from extreme distances. Available in Black Ops Cold War at the launch of Season Three and in Warzone mid-season.

CARV.2: Tactical Rifle (In-Season)

Carve through the competition with this burst-fire tactical rifle, joining the ranks of the M16 with its high-damage, high-bullet-velocity output. Boasting moderate firepower with solid recoil control and a large ammo pool, the CARV.2 cuts the deepest when used for mid- to long-range engagements.

AMP63: Pistol (In-Season)

The Secondary category gets even deeper later in Season Three thanks to the AMP63 pistol. Slotting in as the fourth sidearm in Black Ops Cold War’s arsenal, this personal defense weapon is a cross between a self-loading pistol and a fully automatic SMG. Expect this weapon to output high amounts of damage in a short period of time thanks to its full-auto nature, which makes it highly effective in close quarters.

Baseball Bat: Melee (In-Season)

A classic bruiser’s weapon of war, and Black Ops Cold War’s newest addition for one-hit melee fans. Unlock the Baseball Bat in Season Three, and get out there and crack some skulls in Multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone.

Obtain the Ballistic Knife, CARV.2, AMP63, and Baseball Bat during Season Three in one of two ways: complete an in-game challenge to obtain the free base weapon, or pick up a bundle with a Blueprint version when it appears in the Store.

Activision and Treyarch have announced the new MP maps coming to Black Ops Cold War for Season 3 update.

The new Season begins on April 22 on all platforms with a host of new content across all modes of the game.

New MP Maps

Yamantau (6v6, Launch Week)

Bury your enemies in an avalanche of firepower as you fight through the crumbled remains of the Soviet observatory on Mount Yamantau. Battle through a massive downed satellite dish, snowy interiors, and broken catwalks, and fast-rope up and over your enemies to get the jump on the competition.

Diesel (6v6/2v2/3v3, Launch Week)

In the lonesome desert, this slice of Americana erupts into a battleground. Gear up for 6v6, as well as 2v2 and 3v3 in Gunfight on this fast-paced and frenetic map. Battle around the gas station and its surrounding buildings, smack dab in the middle of the badlands. Get frying.

Standoff (6v6, In-Season)

This Black Ops II classic is an icon to fans and pros alike, and in Season Three, it’s coming to Black Ops Cold War. Compete in 6v6 on this medium-sized map, which features a timeless three-lane feel and plentiful opportunities for outsmarting your opponents. Watch those buildings and mind the van over near the hay bales.

Duga (Multi-Team, In-Season)

Deploy with your squad to the Ural Mountains in this expansive new Multi-Team environment. Duga offers something for every playstyle, whether you prefer to move through the central admin offices for close-range battles, or work your way around the perimeter through the bus depot to the chemical processing plant for long-range battles. If you can’t immediately decide where to take your skills, try making your way atop the array tower for a fantastic view before parachuting off to your destination of choice.
