Activision and Treyarch held a massive reveal party for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War yesterday evening and along with the gameplay and multiplayer trailers came information on the official release date of the full game, the launch of the beta and the various editions of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and how to pre-order them.

If you want a more broad overview of what was said yesterday, you can check out our article on that. Here, we'll go into detail on the pre-orders and what they're going to get you. Also, we were right on the open beta launch date! Just patting our backs a little, don't mind us.

Pre-Order Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Get Stuff

The official worldwide release date of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is November 13. So far, so good. Of course, Activision have created the option to pre-order, which will come with some additional content and an early access to the multiplayer beta. Here are the two versions of the game you can pre-order and what they come along with:

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Standard Edition

  • The respective version of the game you purchased (PC, PS4 or Xbox One)
  • Early Access to the Open Beta
  • Woods Operator Pack for immediate use in Modern Warfare and Warzone
  • Confrontation Weapons Pack

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Ultimate Edition

  • The respective version of the game you purchased (PC, PS4 or Xbox One)
  • Early Access to the Open Beta
  • Woods Operator Pack for immediate use in Modern Warfare and Warzone
  • Confrontation Weapons Pack
  • Land, Sea and Air Pack (9 items)
  • Battle Pass Bundle (1 Season Battle Pass + 20 Tier Skips)

What Does It Mean?

Some clarity needed on one or two of these points? We got your back.

  • The early access to the open beta will launch, just like the leaks suggested, on October 8, but on PS4 only. The other platforms do not join the party until a week later - October 15.
  • The Land, Sea and Air promo comprises of three themed packs, each containing an operator skin, a vehicle skin and a weapon blueprint
  • The Battle Pass Bundle is self-explanatory. It will become available when the first Battle Bass is released and will count for one BP only.
  • If you order a PS4 or Xbox One version of the game, you will be able to play that version on PS5 via backwads compatibility. However, there will be a separate next-gen version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War that can be obtained only through the Cross-Gen Bundle.
