Submit

Today Activision finally pulled the curtain back on Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, releasing a full trailer for the game’s single-player campaign, details about how the game will cross over with Call of Duty: Warzone, and more (get all the details here), but they also revealed something fans might not be so excited about – a next-gen price tag. Much like NBA 2K21 and other AAA games, the Xbox Series and PS5 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold war will cost $70. With CoD on board, it seems like the next-gen price hike is probably going to be standard across the board.

Activision has also announced they’ll be offering a Smart-Delivery-style free next-gen upgrade scheme, although since the XSX/PS5 versions of Cold War cost more, you’ll need to buy the $70 “Cross-Gen Bundle” to get the upgrade. Activision has announced three different digital CoD: Black Ops Cold War editions – the $60 current-gen Standard Edition, the $70 Cross-Gen Bundle, and the $90 Ultimate Edition, which also includes the next-gen upgrade. Shockingly, it seems like an expensive physical collector’s edition isn’t being offered. Here’s everything included in the different versions of the game:

Update: You may also be wondering what will happen if you purchase a physical copy of CoD: Black Ops Cold War (remember those?) Well, only the standard edition will be available physically, and according to Activision's FAQ, you'll be able to upgrade from the PS4 version to the PS5 version for $10, but Xbox One physical copy owners won't be able able to upgrade to Xbox Series X.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War arrives on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 13. The game will be available on Xbox Series X and PS5 whenever the consoles happen to launch.
