Welcome to the FREE Crossplay Open Beta

The Black Ops Cold War Crossplay Open Beta is now FREE to all players across all platforms through 10AM PT on Monday, October 19th! Today, we’ve raised the level cap to 40, added Control to the 6v6 rotation, and enabled 2XP + 2X Weapon XP for all players throughout the weekend!

We’ve also made some additional gameplay updates and stability improvements in our latest update. Read on for the full list of new content and tweaks:

 

CONTROL (6v6)

Control joins the Quick Play selection of 6v6 modes today in the Crossplay Open Beta. We’re excited to bring back this Black Ops 4 fan-favorite, where opposing teams fight to capture or defend two objectives on the map or wipe out the other team before running out of lives.

Each team of up to six players has 30 lives distributed among the team, injecting a new layer of strategy for both attacking and defending teams. Jump into Control this weekend on Cartel, Miami, and Moscow and let us know what you think.
