Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer footage leaks; no prestige system

The first footage of Cold War’s multiplayer has appeared online, as rumours suggest the game won’t be bringing back the prestige system.

It’s due to be released in little more than two months’ time but officially the only footage we’ve seen so far for Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is from its story campaign. Unofficially though you can also watch the video above.

It turned up on Reddit and YouTube with the customary lack of explanation and shows a mode called VIP Escort, which seems pretty self-explanatory.

The map is set in Miami and seems very obviously inspired by ‘80s movie classic Scarface. Whether it’s the same footage that will be shown during the official reveal next Wednesday is unclear, but it certainly doesn’t seem to be fake.

It’s only a few minutes of footage but apart from the map itself you can see the game has a revive mechanic, to bring back team-mates, and the time to kill (TTK) seems surprisingly low – although that may only seem that way because half the gameplay is in spectator mode.

The game still seems to have a lot in common with last year’s Modern Warfare, despite Cold War being made by a different team, but certainly the graphics are impressive, if nothing else.

Another similarity with Modern Warfare is that Cold War will allegedly not see the return of the prestige system, despite it being part of Black Ops 4.

The system has appeared in all Call Of Duty games since the original Modern Warfare but Infinity Ward removed it for last year’s reboot and supposedly it’s not being reinstated for Cold War.

Leakers ModernWarzone and TheMW2Ghost both agree that the system is ‘likely not returning’, although there is apparently some chance of a last-minute change of heart.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is due for release on 13 November for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions are also planned and will likely be out this year too.
