Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is an upcoming title in the extensive Call of Duty franchise. The initial announcement for the game took place on August 26th, 2020, with the release of its campaign trailer. The multiplayer mode for the game is going to release on September 9th.
However, the alpha footage for the popular shooter’s multiplayer mode has leaked on the internet. The leak occurred when Twitch streamer DouguisRaw accidentally streamed around 7 minutes of the unreleased game on the platform.
A four-minute clip of this stream quickly found its way to other social platforms. While Activision was quick to take down the footage from YouTube and Twitch, the leaked clips are yet present on Reddit forums. You can watch the entire four-minute clip here.
What’s hot on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War?
With the official release still days away, the leak provides some great insight into Activision’s plans for the series. The footage featured the 6v6 VIP Escort game mode. As we follow DougisRaw during the match, we get introduced to a new map located in Miami.
The five classes featuring in the clip were Pointman, Double Agent, Fire Support, Grenadier, and Stealth Ops. The weapons have five attachment slots along with a weapon level progression akin to Call of Duty Warzone.
Player loadout featured slots for a Field upgrade, lethal equipment, and tactical equipment. Another slot featured in the loadout was for ‘Wildcards’. These allow players to modify their loadout for better customization.
The two factions in this clip are CIA and DGI. These VIP Escort matches end when either side wins four rounds in total. The footage featured two such Wildcards.
The first, named ‘Perk Greed’, allowed players to use two perks per slot. The second allegedly provided double lethal and tactical grenades, being labeled ‘Danger Close’.
The multiplayer maps start with a quick cinematic cutscene, similar to how players exit a van at the start of this clip. Each game concludes with a series of clips showing the ‘Best Play’ of the match.
