Details on the game’s customizable HUD have also been revealed.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is out in a little over a month from now, and ahead of that, players will be going hands-on with the game in its beta period over the next couple of weeks. Recently, in an update talking about the beta, developers Treyarch also revealed some other new features that are coming to Black Ops Cold War that should please quite a few.
For starters, they’ve confirmed that the upcoming shooter will have a field of view (or FoV) slider on consoles as well, not just on PC, which makes it a first for the series. Performance might buckle with wider FoVs, but it can be tried out in the beta as well.
Meanwhile, Treyarch have also detailed some new HUD customization options that will be in the game and in the beta. Players can toggle visuals for the compass, enemy and ally health bars, hit markers, crosshairs, player names, and button hints.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s multiplayer beta is live for pre-order holders on PS4 today. It will also allow players to play a new 40-player mode.
Recently, details and gameplay on the Zombies mode were also shared. If you’re more concerned about the single player though, you can check out a chunk of footage from the campaign through here.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches for PS5, Xbox Series X / S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 13.
