Players got a nice surprise when they learned that the hit battle royale game ‘Call of Duty: Warzone’ was launchable within the Black Ops Cold War Alpha. Here’s what you need to do in order to play it.

Activision has already announced that when Black Ops Cold War officially launches in November 2020, a fresh slew of new content based on the game will be added to Call of Duty: Warzone, further connecting the two games. In addition, Warzone will be launchable within the application of Black Ops Cold War.

After Activision announced the Black Ops Cold War Alpha during the PlayStation 5 showcase, they went on to confirm that the aforementioned feature would be included in the Alpha at launch. Here’s everything you need to know about how to play it.

How do I play Warzone within the Black Ops Cold War Alpha?

When you open the Black Ops Cold War Alpha, you’ll notice that the main menu is very similar to Modern Warfare.

From left to right you’ll see the Campaign, Multiplayer, Warzone, Zombies and Store selections. Obviously, the Campaign and Zombies modes are locked off, and there’s no way to play them whatsoever.

The menu for the Black Ops Cold War Alpha is almost identical to Modern Warfare.

If you click the Warzone selection in the middle, one of two things will happen. If you have Warzone installed, it’ll open the application for that game and you’ll be able to play it right then and there. If you don’t, it’ll take you to the PlayStation Store and you’ll have to install it from there.

This gives players a good idea as to how it’ll work when the full game is released. While some people thought it would be fully playable within the Black Ops Cold War application, this clearly isn’t the case.

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War is set to release on November 13, 2020, on PS4, PS5, Xbox family of consoles, and PC. Keep it locked to Dexerto for more info on the game in the coming weeks.

Another massive Warzone event is heating up as popular content creator and battle royale champion Jordan ‘HusKerrs’ Thomas is hosting his very own tournament with $300,000 on the line.

Following close behind Vikkstar’s original Warzone competition, HusKerrs is next in line for his own huge Call of Duty event. HusKerrs Howl aims to crown the best partners in the world as this unique event focuses on Duos action.

After making history as the first player to pass six figures in Warzone winnings, it’s only fitting that HusKerrs’ event comes with the biggest prize pool yet. A whopping $300,000 is up for grabs over the course of two weeks.

From the teams that will be dropping in to when each round of action is taking place, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event.

What is the HusKerrs Howl Warzone event?

The HusKerrs Howl event is one of the biggest Warzone tournaments to date. Not just in terms of prizing, but in how long it’s set to last and how many teams will be getting involved.

Duos will be dropping into Verdansk across multiple weeks in order to qualify for the Finals. Additionally, there’s also a special one-off Zombie Trios section to get things going before the Duos competition really begins.

A brand new Twitch channel has been created just for this event with HusKerrs set to host. We’ve embedded this below for your convenience. Expect almost every competitor to be sharing their own perspective throughout the tournament as well.

HusKerrs Howl will be starting with a Zombie Royale showdown.

First up is the special Zombie Day event on Friday, October 30 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET. This is a unique Trios competition in the Zombie Royale playlists. Only one team can take out the prize for what is essentially a warm-up run before the real show starts up.

The following day on October 31, Duos will be dropping in for the first round of qualifying action. This will be followed up by the second and third rounds on November 5 and November 6 respectively.

Last but not least, the best Duos from the qualifiers will advance through to the Finals. This takes place on November 7 to determine the overall winner of the HusKerrs Howl event.

This particular competition is for Duos only.

This particular Warzone competition is for Duos only and will feature a double-elimination bracket. 16 teams will be dropping in for the first day of action. They will go head to head until the very end with only the Top 3 qualifying for the Finals.

For the final two days of the qualifiers, only eight duos will be playing. From here, the Top 2 make it into the Finals. This makes seven Duos so HusKerrs will be taking the eighth and final spot.

As teams are going head to head, the Duo with the highest point total in each matchup will advance. No different from most Warzone events, teams will be awarded one point per elimination. There’s currently no telling how many points will be awarded for higher placements in each match.

Stay tuned over the coming days for full recaps and results as the action gets underway. Big names such as Symfuhny, Aydan, and TeePee are all expected for the event. So it’s sure to be an intense tournament.
