Developer Treyarch has published the system requirements for the PC version of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War . The shooter uses the in-house engine and relies on the Direct3D-12 graphics interface, and there are again shadows rendered by DirectX ray tracing (DXR).

In contrast to CoD Modern Warfare , ray tracing is also used for ambient occlusion, as in Metro Exodus . In addition, there is the Nvidia-exclusive reconstruction filter DLSS 2.0 (Deep Learning Super Sampling) for a higher frame rate and Nvidia Reflex to reduce system latency in multiplayer.

The plot is set in the Cold War and takes place in the 80s, the main character can be created in a variety of ways. The plot revolves around the allegedly real character Perseus: This is a never-identified Soviet spy who is said to have spied on the Manhattan project – research on the atomic bomb. Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War will be released on November 13, 2020 for Windows PC, Playstation 4 (Pro), Playstation 5, Xbox One (X) and Xbox Series X | S.
