Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer maps were captured during the worldwide reveal.
During the Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer worldwide reveal, fans were thrilled with footage of what's to come in the most-anticipated Call of Duty in history. With a barrel-load of new information to decipher and analyse before the game becomes available in November, popular content creators and Call of Duty esports professionals have already gone to town on the maps that we're set to be playing on throughout the remainder of 2020 and the majority of 2021.
Within the worldwide reveal, we were treated to five multiplayer maps, with the streamers and professional players showcasing each of them on the official Call of Duty YouTube channel and their individual streams. Playing against each other on a variety of game modes - including "Control", which makes its return - they took us through every nook and cranny of Armada, Crossfire, Miami, Moscow, and Satellite. Rather than trawling through hours of gameplay, here's what you can expect from each map...
Armada is based on three ships in the North Atlantic. Boasting zip lines from ship to ship, Jet Skis, and mountable turreted speedboats, this 12v12 map looks to be a hell of a lot of fun. It has both long-distance and close-quarters opportunities, where a sniper and submachine gun combination could run riot. Whether you're peeking from a balcony window or ripping your way starboard towards a Hardpoint hill, there's a combination that suits everyone. You can even go for a little deep-sea diving if you can find the time.
The second Black Ops Cold War map is Crossroads. In this snowy map in Uzbekistan, your team will have a lot of fun. From Snowmobiles to Tanks, players will be ducking and diving away from oncoming convoys looking to get aggressive. There are plenty of open spaces, but the speed of the gameplay may keep you covered. The best players will control the centre of the map, as this looks to be an assault rifles paradise. Crossroads is a bigger map with each terrain suiting a specific game type, allowing you to play how you want to.
Miami has been the most captured map so far. The large map can play host to 12v12 Team Deathmatches of 6v6 objective games. A night-time map illuminated by the famous Ocean Drive lights. Right on the beachfront, you can either flank along the coast, lurk in the shadows, or tear your way through the hotels and nightclubs. Sticking together and having your teammates six here will be crucial, as players can be hiding in the dark. Get ready to trade your teammate's life here.
"With Spetznaz dispatched, the area has gone hot". In the backdrop of the Moscow Kremlin, players will dive into buildings and car-filled streets, with plenty of open ground. The traditional three lanes are rife here, although the centre can be a bloodbath. The metro station in the middle will be where the action really kicks off on this 6v6 multiplayer map, which looks to be an incredible map for objective-based games. With many angles to infiltrate areas of the map, teamwork will be key to trap opponents and stop them from advancing.
In this Black Ops Cold War Multiplayer map, you will fight for control of the centre of the map, which is a crash site on a raised platform. Located in a Grand-Canyon-esque desert in the heart of Angola, you will have to have eyes in the top of your head, with opponents on both your level and above you. You can also jump into a Sand Buggy and take over the dunes, swerving airstrikes from every direction, as assault rifle mains will look to take control of the map. It's almost a blend of Modern Warfare 2's Afghan, and Crashed from the Modern Warfare series. Take control of the crash site in the middle to win here, just mind you don't get a haircut from a sniper.
