Treyarch is back, and the amount hype for Black Ops Cold War has never been matched. This is the most anticipated Call of Duty ever.

A gripping campaign, a new and improved dynamic to Warzone, and the return of Zombies, Black Ops Cold War is poised to thrill.

Control Replaces Domination in Black Ops Cold War

Finally. Control will feature alongside Search and Destroy and Hardpoint as the three competitive game modes. After a tiresome year of watching tedious Domination maps, control will replace this, adding more intense plays and huge clutches from the world best players.

Control is a game mode where are two control points, and the attacking team needs to capture both control points on a limited number of lives before time runs out. The defending team needs to defend the points until time runs out. 30 lives are given to both teams. The control points are captured in segments, so once one segment is captured, it remains captured.

This combines both Search and Destroy and Hardpoint, to find the balance between aggression and stealth, with kills coming just as vital as map control.

With the CDL 2021 rostermania capturing the headlines, the multiplayer reveal looks set to make the next the season the most competitive and exciting yet.
