WHAT TO EXPECT

This is an Alpha build of the Multiplayer experience designed to provide our developers with the crucial data they need to continue tuning Multiplayer, and to give players a small taste of what to expect in the final version. Please note that everything you’ll see, hear, and play is still in development, and you’ll have access to just a slice of the full content planned for November 13th.

You may see some placeholders for game features that won’t be available in the Alpha, like the return of Theater mode. On the other hand, there are also plenty of Black Ops Cold War features that we’re planning for the full game that you won’t see in the Alpha, including Finishing Moves, Weapon Inspect, the ability to toggle certain HUD elements in Settings, and much more.

With that said, there’s a ton of content to dig into over the 48 hours of the Alpha! Here’s a preview of what’s included, including some of the weapons, maps, modes, Perks, Wildcards, Scorestreaks, Operators, and more:
