PlayStation 4 players have finally had a chance to get their hands on the new Call of Duty, Black Ops Cold War, extensively last weekend during the opening beta, but they were met with worrying connection issues.

Mike & Keshav welcome Drift0r to Episode #5 of the CharlieIntel Podcast. Fresh off the back of Black Ops Cold War’s first weekend of Beta, the three discuss whether the gameplay and gunplay of the game and also whether the connection issues are masking a hidden gem.

The group also discusses crossplay and how that will fit into Call of Duty ahead of the upcoming weekend where we will finally see crossplay between PC, Xbox One, and PS4 in the beta. They also discuss the importance of Fortnite fans forcing Sony’s hand into making crossplay a thing, and how it is standard across most games in the market today.

Drift0r also addresses the developers admitting that skill-based matchmaking has existed in the franchise since Black Ops 2 and defends his YouTube series claiming that SBMM didn’t exist.
