Black Ops Cold War Season 1 Cinematic Trailer: New Character, Maps

Nicholas Sakadelis

The official Intro Cinematic Season 1 trailer has released for Black Ops Cold War, which drops December 16, 2020.

Black Ops Cold War season 1’s trailer has dropped today, after a lengthy easter egg hunt by the community. The hunt consisted of content creators working together to figure out a coded message sent to them from a radio.

Throughout the journey, several messages had to be decoded on, which brought us to various mini-games and puzzles, including a cool RC-XD video game.

After solving the final message, we were given the link to a private YouTube video containing the Season 1 trailer for Black Ops Cold War. The trailer shows off several story developments coming to the game while giving us a sneak peek at the new maps coming to Season 1.

In the trailer, we see Russell Adler come head to head with an old KGB foe, Vikhtor “Stitch” Kuzmin. Stitch had previously been the creator of Nova 6 gas, on Rebirth Island, which was stormed by US forces and overtaken.

Stitch had been taken prisoner by Adler and tortured, which resulted in his hatred towards him. Afterward, Stitch was sentenced to time in the Gulag by Kravchenko for letting the Island fall.

It was during this time Stitch plotted revenge against Adler, which later results in him planning an attack to bait Adler out on US territory by planting several Nova 6 bombs in a mall located in New Jersey. The trailer ends mid-showdown, with Adler and his squad completely boxed in by Stitch’s forces.

Upcoming Content

While the trailer mainly showcases story elements occurring after the main Black Ops Cold War campaign, it showcases us a brand new Mall map and teases the Rebirth Island map coming to Warzone.

Alongside the mall map, we should also see the release of 4 Gunfight maps in Black Ops Cold War, a Raid remaster, and operators and cosmetics in the Battle Pass.

Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone drops December 16, 2020.

We’ll update you with any more information as it becomes available.
