Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War tells the story of an age-old conspiracy, culminating in the early 1980s in the heat of the Cold War. This is a direct sequel to the original Black Ops game and picks up where the first game left off, with Alex Mason, Frank Woods and Jason Hudson joining forces with a new group of Agents to unravel a global terrorist plot.
Exploring the Cold War represents the perfect playground for powerful weapons, secret spies, and a return to form with Treyarch and Raven Software at the helm
