Prepare for Battle on Land, Sea, and Air Through Ultimate Edition Digital Pre-Orders 

Those who digitally pre-order the Call of Duty® Black Ops: Cold War Ultimate Edition (all current and next-generation consoles or PC) will receive the Land, Sea, and Air Pack.

Themed around the three classical dimensions of warfare ideal for executing deniable operations in the field, this nine-item bundle will grant three vehicle skins, three Operator skins, and three weapon blueprints, available immediately within Black Ops Cold War at launch. In addition, all Digital Pre-Order Rewards and Open Beta Early Access (see below) are a part of the Ultimate edition.

Here’s what you get:

Land Themed Pack

Whether you call it the “motherland” or the “homeland,” these three items will help clean house of any hostile forces.

·      Operator Skin –Ground infantry with bandolier and mesh face camouflage.

·      Weapon Blueprint – “Sucker Punch” Shotgun – A sawed off-stock and shorter barrel more than mitigates the weight of shells taped to the side, with the weapon’s simple appearance allowing it to blend into most non-tundra engagement environments.

·      Vehicle Skin “Red Bear” - The colorful blue hue seems a little worn, but the bright red star on the side will made this a standout tank among a platoon.

Sea Themed Pack

Suit up for operations at sea to maneuver behind enemy lines.

·      Operator Skin –Special operations wetsuit.

·      Weapon Blueprint “Black Tide” Assault Rifle – Chambered for 5.56x45mm NATO cartridges, the Black Tide’s a gold standard for any Operator, a fitting label for a blueprint that features subtle, yet intricate, gold accents.

·      Vehicle Skin “Leviathan” Skin– A striking zebra-like pattern is only broken up by necessary accessories, including its classy seafaring trim and decals.

Air Themed Pack

Be a maverick and prepare for take-off with this pack – its contents allow any Operator with ace flying skills to also look the part.

·      Operator Skin – Airborne division operator flightsuit.

·      Weapon Blueprint “Wingman” Pistol – Like any good co-pilot or emergency parachute, this reliable sidearm can be phenomenal in a pinch, and comes with a design that includes a signature fin flash insignia and checkered muzzle.

·      Vehicle Skin “Death Dealer” Skin – This hulking beast of a chopper forgoes the more extreme checkered pattern seen on a Blueprint and Operator Skin for yellow markings on a blue-painted base, with a devilish bomb-dropping caricature plastered on for a dark comedic effect.

In addition, Ultimate edition pre-order players will receive the Battle Pass Bundle (Battle Pass + 20 immediately activated Tier Skips) for use in any Black Ops Cold War post-launch Season.

Digital Pre-Order Rewards and Open Beta Early Access

Experience Black Ops signature combat and gain early access to the pre-launch Open Beta when you digitally pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

In addition, digital pre-order players will receive the Woods Operator pack, available for immediate use in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare® and Warzone.

The Woods Operator Pack includes the iconic Black Ops SOG operative, Sgt. Frank Woods, as a playable Operator, an assault rifle weapon blueprint, quip, and Finishing Move.
