Call Of Duty: Black Ops 6 Release Date Has Been Revealed Alongside New Campaign, Multiplayer And Zombies Details

UNREDACTED

Developer Treyarch has properly lifted the lid on Call of Duty: Black Ops 6, announcing that the game will release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC on October 25.

Directly following the Xbox Games Showcase, a 25-minute Call of Duty direct aired, delving into some of the advancements and new features found within the long-running series’ next instalment. Primarily focusing on the campaign, we got a solid look at the story fuelling Black Ops 6. Set during the early 1990s, players will explore the post-Cold War global tension, with series veteran Frank Woods returning as a key supporting character in the narrative. Newcomers Troy Marshall and Jane Harrow will also be joined by Russell Adler, a returning face from Cold War who looks to be an ally but has mysteriously reappeared after an extended absence.

The gameplay we see throughout the Direct is explosive and bombastic, which we have come to expect from Call of Duty and Black Ops in particular. In terms of how the game plays, Treyarch detailed its new Omnimovement system. Freeing up players to move and interact in every direction, the Omnimovement system allows you to sprint in any direction, as well as slide, dive, crawl and turn however they wish. Moreover, Treyarch is implementing a number of accessibility options, known as Intelligent Movement, to allow all players to enjoy the new advancements, such as being able to set up mantle assist, sprint assist, and crouch assist.

While the multiplayer portion of the Direct was far smaller, we did get confirmation that the Prestige system is returning to its glory days or resetting progression and running back the grind. The HUD will also be fully customisable, letting players tinker with their heads-up display until they get it just right for their preferences. Lastly, and most excitedly for some, it was confirmed that the round-based zombie mode is making a return. Little more was said, but a return to the classic zombie experience sure makes me happy, and I’m sure I’m not alone.

A full multiplayer reveal is scheduled for August 28 at Call of Duty NEXT, so if you’re a no-scoping fanatic, tune in to see more from the competitive side of Black Ops 6. And, if you want to know the ins and outs of this directly, you can head over to the Call of Duty Blog, where every little detail is broken down.
