Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer reveal took place on September 9th. That’s behind the new VIP mode.
Santa Monica, USA – Call of Duty Modern Warfare achieved a new record sale in the history of the first-person shooter. The subsequent Battle Royale offshoot, Call of Duty Warzone, was even more successful. Now it is up to Treyarch to jump on the path to success.
With Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, they want to set new standards. To achieve this, there is a new VIP mode in the game. But what is behind the game variant?
Treyarch Reveals Multiplayer With A New VIP mode
There was a lot to marvel at during the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War multiplayer reveal. Not only did you see firefights on speedboats or snowmobiles, but the release date was also announced in advance.
On November 13th it’s that time again and the Black Ops series goes into the next round. Instead of Call of Duty Black Ops 5, however, it goes back to the beginning.
As could be seen in the story trailer, Frank Wood, one of the main characters from the first part, is making his comeback. Also at the start of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is a cult killstreak. Infinity Ward had already shown that you can take one step back in history to move forward two in multiplayer.
Just about every Call of Duty had its own specifics. Disregarding weapons and killstreaks, there was a new game mode almost every year, which gave the game its very special touch. Be it Infected in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 or Control in Call of Duty Black Ops 4.
Every year, the developers made a big impression. Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War also integrates a new mode into the shooter series
That’s behind Treyarch’s Cool VIP mode
The VIP mode is something that has never been seen before. At least in the Call of Duty universe. Shooter fans will already know a similar version of the mode from Counter-Strike and the like. The VIP mode is about escorting a player, the so-called VIP.
While all players can choose their normal classes, the VIP is only equipped with a pistol and a smoke grenade. The VIP is determined randomly and changes after each round. As soon as the opposing team has eliminated the VIP, the round ends.
If a player is shot down, he does not die immediately but can be healed by other players – in the style of Call of Duty Warzone. The first team to win four rounds in a row decides the game in VIP mode for itself. So if you prefer to run single-handedly against opponents in Call of Duty and only want to score with accuracy and reflexes, you will hardly find any joy in the new game mode.
A correspondingly brave step by Treyarch is to introduce a mode in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, in which five players are largely dependent on the performance of a single player. A wrong decision by the VIP can ultimately decide around faster than desired.
It remains to be seen whether the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War VIP mode can win the hearts of fans. Even if the formula isn’t new, the changes could be suitable additions to the gameplay. It seems Treyarch is listening to the fans’ requests. A beloved feature makes it in Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War.
