Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War Alpha

The Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War Alpha is free for all PS4 players.

The Alpha will begin on 18 September 2020 and end on 20 September 2020.

Players can jump straight into the brand-new Combined Arms: Domination experience or play in a variety of 6v6 gameplay modes.

Combined Arms: Domination introduces vehicle-based combat and 24 players to a single domination match. They can use snowmobiles, tanks, wakerunners, gunboats and more to traverse the map faster and hit the enemy harder.

In the Alpha experience, Combined Arms: Domination will take place on two maps:

Map – Armada

It’s 1984, and U.S. and Soviet forces are battling it out in the North Atlantic Ocean in search of a prototype nuclear submarine.

Competing squads will take to the high seas with skirmishes on multiple ships, utilizing ziplines, rappel lines, and various seacraft to navigate the rough waters below.

The central ship is a hotspot for combat of all forms, from CQB battles in control stations, to sniper duels with adjacent ships, to aquatic warfare that may take place below the surface. Be sure to explore every nook and cranny of the map to discover new entryways to each objective point, and keep your head on a swivel.

Map – Crossroads

In the middle of the frozen Soviet wilderness, NATO forces have ambushed a large military convoy comprised of mobile ICBM launchers.

Tanks and Snowmobiles will help operatives plow over this snowy tundra’s banks and groves, both of which could be temporary homes to sharpshooters looking for longshot opportunities.

Those planning out their strategy for victory should consider wresting control of the communications station, the lone structure that stands at the dead center of the iced-over lake. Or, for those looking to flank the enemy team, try braving the rickety bridge that spans over a deadly chasm… if you’re not afraid of heights, that is.

The Alpha will also include three traditional game modes across two maps designed for 6v6 play.

These include Team Deathmatch (TDM) and Kill Confirmed; a TDM variant where Operators must confirm kills by picking up enemy dog tags dropped by downed players before they are denied by the enemy team.

Then there’s Domination, an objective mode staple in the Call of Duty franchise. Players can expect a larger capture area than in previous titles, allowing for more cover opportunities and manoeuvrability when attacking or defending while capturing a point.

These three modes will be available on the following maps during the Alpha:

Map – Miami

A prison transport vehicle has been intercepted by Perseus through hired DGI forces, with CIA forces arriving to take them out in the heat of Miami’s South Beach.

Amid art-deco architecture and neon lights, Operators battle between various buildings, in the streets, and on a stretch of the beachfront itself. Various rooftops and windows act as prime longshot spots for sharpshooters who can take advantage of vistas across empty streets and beaches.

Meanwhile, Operators can weave in-and-out of vacated tourist traps in close-quarters combat, using parts of a parking garage or the beachfront to flank enemy combatants.

Map – Satellite

First teased in the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Reveal trailer, Satellite is set in an Angolan desert where a KH-9 American-made satellite has been downed.

Soviet and American forces arrive on a battlefield devoid of any man-made structures, save for the satellite in question at mid-map. Other than this cover-heavy central point, the map’s rocky outcroppings and archways provide numerous flanking routes and plenty of covers.

Alternatively, the natural sand dunes on the opposite side of the map are perfect territory for snipers, at the expense of any meaningful protection from aerial Scorestreaks or a cross-map high-calibre bullet.

The Alpha gives just a taste of the content to come with Multiplayer this year. For more details and information on the full Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer experience, head on over here.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is slated to release for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Battle.net on 13 November 2020, and for PS5 and Xbox Series X sometime this holiday. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
