Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer footage leaked last week in what turned out to be a streamer accidentally going live during a preview.
Footage of the new Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War circulated online earlier this week, in what turned out to be an accident by a streamer. The official gameplay reveal for Black Ops Cold War from Activision is meant to only be in another two days.
Trailers and reveals from Activision, along with various leaks, have told fans a lot about the upcoming Call of Duty game. Despite being the sixth game in the Black Ops series, it will be a direct sequel to the original Call Of Duty: Black Ops, and will feature some of the series’ favorite protagonists, Alex Mason and Frank Woods. During a panel at Gamescom 2020, one of the game’s developers, Raven Software, told fans that Black Ops Cold War will have multiple endings and consequences for players’ choices. This gives players a lot more freedom to play the game their way as opposed to the usual, linear story campaigns. To make it even more customizable, players will be given the chance to create their own characters with a preferred gender, plus their own military background and psychological profile.

Not much had been revealed about the multiplayer of COD: Black Ops Cold War until footage from a match on the Miami map leaked last week. While the gameplay video initially circulated from several different sources, Daily Esports reports that the original leak came from streamer DougisRaw. With the multiplayer reveal happening on September 9th, streamers were called upon to record some footage for Activision ahead of time, which is common for games with as much hype as Black Ops Cold War. However, it backfired on Activision when DougisRaw allegedly streamed the game for a full 15 minutes by accident. Clips of the gameplay footage have been making the rounds, but Activision has been working hard to delete all recordings that have come out of this slip. Based on what has been seen of it, the mulitplayer looks like it will not be very different from that of Modern Warfare.
Some things came up this morning
I’ll try and go live later today, I’ll keep you guys posted ✌🏼

While the leaked footage has now been taken down, it featured gameplay with weapons including an SMG and assault rifle, as well as showing off the movement and the HUD. Several of the players at the preview event can also be heard in one clip. After the Black Ops Cold War footage surfaced online, DougisRaw cancelled a stream, telling his fans that “something came up,” but was back to streaming soon.
Leaks tend to sprout whenever a new COD game is about to be released, and Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has had the same treatment. Although the multiplayer looks very similar to previous releases in the series, fans of COD have eagerly sunk their teeth into even this small leak of information, and look forward to the official reveal, which is bound to give more details. The game is set to be released on November 13th, when fans can finally see if some of the game’s odd revisions of real-world politics actually pay off.
