CompLexity CEO Jason Lake has given a behind the scenes look at the inner workings of the organization over CoD rostermania, revealing what players Doug ‘Censor’ Martin wanted on the team.

CompLexity have now released their entire roster, after selling Brandon ‘Dashy’ Otell to OpTic, and unable to find a roster that worked with their remaining three, Censor, Ricky and Blazt.

Although they would have had a guaranteed pool play spot, Lake explains in the video that if they “objectively weigh [Call of Duty] on a scale, for us right now, it doesn’t make any sense.”

CompLexity haven’t completely ruled out a return to Call of Duty with a new roster, but in the video Lake explains that if/when franchising comes, it will make more sense, rather than spending “5, 6, 7 hundred thousand over the next 12 months.”

Specifically, Lake reveals the three players that Censor was keen on joining the roster for Black Ops 4, although of course it never materialized.

“I’ve had a lot of meetings with [Censor], there’s a lot of different options. He’s talked about Enable, he’s talked about Accuracy, he’s talked about AquA – we still don’t know if it’s four or five players.”

Since being released and becoming a free agent, Censor appears to have had a rollercoaster ride in rostermania. On October 7 he said that he had a new team and couldn’t wait to officially announce, but only days later he announced he was a free agent instead.

As for Ricky and Blazt, their future roster situation is unknown, but it is believed they are both set on rosters, perhaps sticking together and joining anoher three players.

While Censor had an up and down WWII season, his return to competitive CoD after years out, he proved that he can compete with top players, but whether he gets a chance on a top roster is another matter.

Black Ops Cold War PlayStation-exclusive Zombies mode revealed

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Onslaught players will be dropped into multiplayer maps and forced to fight the undead.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
