Call of Duty: Warzone to integrate with Black Ops Cold War
The free to play shooter will get new updates alongside the next full game
Activision has announced the deatails on the future of Call of Duty: Warzone, the free-to-play battle royale shooter.
Warzone will support both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Starting November 13th with the launch of Black Ops Cold War, Warzone players will begin seeing new Black Ops Cold War content coming to all modes of the Call of Duty Battle Royale experience.
For the first time in Call of Duty history, Season One brings universal and synchronized player progression that works between Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare, and Warzone. Black Ops Cold War progression builds on a familiar and similar path to Modern Warfare while incorporating Prestige system.
To synchronize player progression across all three games, your initial (Military) rank will be reset within Modern Warfare and Warzone at the start of Black Ops Cold War Season One. This reset is synchronized to your current progression level in Black Ops Cold War when Season One begins. Everything you’ve previously unlocked remains available (like Weapons, Perks and Killstreaks in Modern Warfare for example).
At the start of Season One expect every weapon from Modern Warfare and new weapons from Black Ops Cold War to be accessible in Warzone, including Blueprints and camo variants. Mix and level up weapons both in Warzone and the game the weapon originated from.
The Battle Pass system continues, with Season One coming loaded with brand new content for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Progress through the Battle Pass system by playing any of the three games. Battle Pass content you unlock is shown in-game, no matter which game you’re playing.
No matter what game you are playing – or the platform you’re playing it on – access and invite your friends to join you. Cross-Title Invites allow you to invite your friends who are playing Modern Warfare or Warzone to join you in Black Ops Cold War, and vice versa, with the party leader navigating to the title everyone wishes to play.
Content may be temporarily or permanently removed from Warzone in the future, based on game or thematic changes, technical or legal requirements, and/or storage limitations. Complete deatils can be found on the Activision blog.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and will launch on Xbox Series X|S and PS5 next week. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches next week on all platforms.
