According to an insider, I should have decided to move away from the Modern Warfare variant and return to the origins of Black Ops in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with at least two basic game mechanics.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The information on two essential mechanics of the multiplayer of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War comes from Tom Hendersonwho, as a long sensation, often tweeted inside information. Nevertheless it should be mentioned again that these details are not official.

Return to 3-lane maps

First of all: Yes, Modern Warfare also has maps that basically follow the 3-lane principle, but have been this principle softened significantly. The maps, especially if they were new and did not come from older parts, are included much more cross connections equipped and are also more winding. At the time of release there were more asymmetrical maps in Modern Warfare, above all was Piccadilly Circus heavily criticized. Infinity Ward then approached the three lanes again. According to Henderson, Black Ops Cold War is intended for more linear three lanes like in Black Ops 2 to return.

Opinions are divided on the question of which kind of maps is better. Some prefer linear maps because they find it terrible to be shot at from countless angles and prefer the tactical approach as a team, which is easier to play on these maps. The others like the variety of open maps.

Henderson also reports that the Maps a little smaller that coincides with the official announcement that the Call of Duty League in teams of four will take place next year. However, the 4v.4 only refers to the Esports and not multiplayer, there it remains at 6v.6.

Return to Scorestreaks

According to Henderson, Black Ops wants Cold War back on goal-oriented play put. You earn the streaks not only by killing but by scoring points. However, many bring Kills a multiplier with himself. There are currently 18 streaks in total, but not all of them will be available for release. Many streaks are supposedly based on Specialist skills from Black Ops 4, such as the flamethrower, the hand cannon or the bow.

You may already know whether there is anything to this inside information on the 9th of September 2020, because the multiplayer will be officially presented there. It will take a while until the release, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be released on November 13, 2020.
