COD launches Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Check

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War servers are live and you can jump into a match, start the campaign or take on the zombie hordes.

The game is live on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. The game can be purchased in India for Rs 4,500 for the standard version and the ultimate version would cost you about 7,000 Rupees.

“Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War” would require 130 GB of space. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’ and ‘Modern Warfare’ combined will exceed 320 GB on next-gen systems.

While previous generation consoles like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have a doable 93-95 GB requirement, it’s platforms like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S that are eye-watering.

Eager Black Ops Cold War players will need the following available hard drive space.

· PlayStation 4 — 95GB

· Xbox One — 93GB

· PlayStation 5 — 133 GB

· Xbox Series X|S — 136 GB

· PC — 125GB on ultra graphics; 35 GB for multiplayer only, 82 GB for full game

Some good news is that Call of Duty allows segmented downloading. The game is divvied up into chunks, like campaign and multiplayer, and you can choose to delete these parts of the game to free up space. The above figures are what’s needed in total. Complete the campaign and you can get rid of it, which will reduce the file size considerably. While there will be third-party hard drive expansions, it is in its own way weird that the new consoles aren’t coming with a terabyte of hard drive space minimum, with premium models raising the bar to two. Maybe someday — but that’s not today.

This year’s Call of Duty is set during the Cold War. The Cold War was a period of major tension between the USA and Soviet Union, but wasn’t an outright war in the conventional sense. Instead, both nations supported “proxy wars” – regional conflicts used to gain global influence. And the fact that both nations controlled nuclear weaponry meant that neither side was willing to risk a war proper.

The period is generally said to have run from 1947 through to 1991 – when the Soviet Union was dissolved. Activision says the game is inspired by actual events: Perseus really was the codename of a possible Soviet spy. Perseus was believed to have breached US Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project, which produced the first nuclear weapons in World War 2. The game is packed to thrill and maybe on its way to shatter records and create some controversy while at it.
