Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will begin a week of the free multiplayer game on PS4 and PS5 today, December 17. There will also be XP bonuses for current players.
The free week will be divided into two stages. The first phase starts on December 17 and runs until December 21. The test allows players to experience the modes that have been in the game since its launch or that will be introduced during the first season. These include Gunfight 2v2, Team Deathmatch, Domination, and two featured playlists: Nuketown Holiday 24/7 and Raid the Mall. Nuketown Holiday is a festive version of Nuketown ’84. Unlike other modes, the map remains constant as game modes change in this playlist. Raid The Mall features two maps, The Pines and Raid, and a variety of 6v6 game modes.
The second part of the week starts on December 21 and ends on December 24. This part will include all the modes of the first part, as well as three additional modes. They are Prop Hunt, Combined Arms: Hardpoint, and Fireteam: Dirty Bomb.
Over the week, there will be double XP for all players. PS4 and PS5 receive exclusively twice as much XP as the free week begins. On December 18, double weapon bonuses start in all modes as well. Finally, on December 22, players can also obtain Double Battle Pass XP. All three XP bonuses will continue until December 28, although free players lose access to the game four days earlier.
Call of Duty: Warzone players are also not left out. They will receive double XP for 24 hours on December 17. There will also be a Double Battle Pass XP period starting on December 25 and lasting until December 28.
