Black Ops Cold War's Zombies Onslaught mode is timed PS4/PS5 exclusive

Black Ops Cold War

The install base for both platforms is the highest its going to ever be, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War was able to capitalise on that.

Update: Oct 23, 11:33am CT: The mode has now been made official by PlayStation.

The new Onslaught mode is a two-player co-op mode, in which player teams have to fend off waves of zombies on the games various maps.

The relationship between Activision and Sony continues.

Judging by the like to dislike ratio seen underneath the trailer, it's clear that a lot of gamers aren't too pleased with the news. People will be playing the next CoD by then. While this may be disappointing, it's not the first time Call of Duty has had a game mode exclusive to PlayStation.


Will Xbox users get it?

The publisher did the same thing with last year's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, making its Spec Ops Survival mode available only on PS4 from the game's debut on October 25, 2019, until October 1, 2020. That same mode was also exclusive to PS4 for the duration of an entire year.

The main Zombies campaign mode will still be available across all platforms, but those wanting a simpler, wave-shooter experience will have to play on PlayStation. There's also a large number of negative comments sitting underneath it. But the news is now out and players on PS4 and PS5 have more exclusive content to look forward to. "The only timed exclusivity is Survival, which is a sliver of Spec Ops". Activision and PlayStation partnered up for Call of Duty since 2015, and has consistently given PlayStation users exclusive content or early access to things like DLC and betas.

Sony's Playstation 5 is much awaited next-generation console from the company.

The "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War" beta test was the most downloaded in the franchise's history.
