Black Ops Cold War Different Editions Detailed, Next-Gen Upgrade Versions Cost Extra $10

Share this:

Following today’s Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War reveal trailer, Activision has confirmed that crossplay and cross progression will be a feature fans can expect. Also announced today are the Black Ops Cold War different editions. Unfortunately for those asuming that you’ll be able to upgrade to the next-gen (PS5, Xbox Series X) versions of Black Ops Cold War if you buy the game on current-gen for free, that’s not happening.

Activision has announced three different editions for Black Ops Cold War: standard, Cross-Gen Bundle and the Ultimate Edition. Note all info are obtained from the PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store.

Standard Edition:

Cross-Gen Bundle:

Ultimate Edition:

As you can see, there is no way (for now) that you can buy the PS5 or Xbox Series X version directly for $60. You’ll need to buy the Cross-Gen Bundle if you’re thinking of double-dipping Black Ops Cold War on current and next-gen which is at $870.  This is the same thing 2K Games has done with NBA 2K21

I guess the logical step for die-hard fans is just to get the Cross-Gen Bundle so they can be sure to play Black Ops Cold War on current and next-gen, then? What will your move be?

Black Ops Cold War will be released on November 13 on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
