New Call of Duty Information Confirms Price and Upgrade Trends

Tucked away in an article about the game, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War has confirmed it will launch at $70 for PS5 and XBOX Series X. You can also upgrade from the PS4/XB1 version for an extra $10. This news comes after Control has confirmed the only way to upgrade your current version of the game is to purchase the new deluxe edition. This version also comes with all DLC including the latest Alan Wake crossover.

With that, I feel it’s safe to say $70 will be the new normal for video games come the next generation. I also feel upgrading your current version to the next gen version will also not come free as it had in the past. The PS4/XB1 version will still retail for $60 so the price change is exclusive to next gen. With Call of Duty and NBA 2k being some of the biggest game releases all year, if this price change isn’t yet the new normal, it absolutely will be once these games drop.

A price increase isn’t a bad thing necessarily if the games provide enough content or upgrade where the money is worth it, but while also being insanely popular, 2k and Activision aren’t the most charitable either. NBA 2k makes bank with its virtual currency and Call of Duty always has DLC (and with the battle royale, a seasonal battle pass) to pad the game out. With zombies confirmed for return we can rest assured knowing more zombie maps will be included in that DLC. It remains to be seen what value differences there will be between the two versions.

Treyarch’s Black Ops Cold War follows last year’s Modern Warfare which has been the best selling title in the series thus far. With people still struggling due to Covid closures it remains to be seen if Treyarch can bring another record setting hit. It has been confirmed single player will be returning and will rival a Hollywood flick. This is great news as many older fans do prefer single player to multiplayer. So far no news on how this will tie into the popular free to play battle royale Warzone, but rest assured it will tie in.

Cold War is set to release on November 14th with next gen versions to arrive at an ambiguous Holiday 2020 date. It is good to note that the standard edition of the XBSX version will include the XB1 version of the game. It’s fair to say most gamers will go for the $10 upgrade once the new consoles drop. The game will feature cross play not just with platforms but also generations.

The next Call of Duty information dump will happen in September so stay tuned for more news.
