Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is already a reality. After its announcement last week, Activision has finally shown the first gameplay trailer for its game, accompanied by new details about it thanks to the advances that have emerged from its campaign. Details such as its performance on the new generation consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, which seem to allow playing at 4K resolution with a rate of 120 fps.
As indicated by the Venture Beat portal as part of its advancement of the game, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War will be able to go to 4K and 120 fps on future consoles: “the game will use a 4K resolution with refresh rates of 120hz”. In addition, it seems that it will take advantage of some of the functions of the new PS5 DualSense controller, as well as the SSDs of the new consoles that promise to eliminate the loading screens: “Cold War will use the haptic controls. The SSDs with flash memory of the new consoles will offer faster loading times, and that means loading screens will be gone, with seamless transitions between cinematics and gameplay. “
To this, Dan Bunting, co-director of Treyarch, commented that “we want to make sure that the frame rate offers a good response, and that it feels like there is nothing in the technical part that prevents you from having a good time.” But not everything is a matter of fluidity, and the game will also have ray tracing in real-time, something that will add much more realism to every visual detail of the game. “With the power of next-gen systems, we’re going to be able to add more detail and love to everything we create,” added Katie Sabin, the artist at Raven Software.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War will be available on November 13 on current platforms, with several different purchase options in physical and digital, and with a somewhat confusing upgrade policy for those looking to purchase it first on PS4 and Xbox One.
