Treyarch’s new game will give more freedom than any other Call of Duty and will feature alternative dialogue options and endings to the story.
This week we have finally known the first details of the new installment of Call of Duty for 2020. It is Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, a direct sequel to the original Black Ops (released in 2010, a decade ago). This time there will be more freedom than ever before and we will not only create our own character by choosing their physical attributes and characteristics, but we will also face levels much less linear than in previous games and we will even have dialogues in which we will decide how to answer. That new degree of freedom has allowed Treyarch and Raven Software, the developers of the title, to create various endings for the main story based on the choices we make.
“When we started creating the story, we already had multiple endings in mind. That helped a lot,” admitted Dan Vondrak, senior creative director at Raven Software. “I think that if you try to add them later, or if they don’t fit with the story you’re telling, you shouldn’t implement them. But we were clear from the beginning. I loved the idea that with them we could pay tribute to Call of Duty a bit. Black Ops 2, which also had several. But even if the latter did not have them, having several endings makes all the sense in the world in Black Ops Cold War. This story was created from the beginning with that in mind. ” According to Vondrak our decisions will mark who lives and who dies during the adventure, or if we manage to save the world once again.
The more expensive next gen versions
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War will be released on November 13 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It will also have a version for the new generation of consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X, where it will be able to reach 4K resolution and 120 hertz . But yes, updating to the next gen will not be free, so to get the PS4 and PS5 versions, for example, you will have to pay a little more. For now, all we have of the game is its first trailer, in which we can take a look at its graphics and the usual setting of the saga, the eighties and the Cold War. For the multiplayer section and the popular zombies mode, we will have to wait until September 9, when both will be presented in society.
