In order to celebrate the release of Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 3, Activision is giving players a brand-new Operator completely free of charge: Price ’84. It marks the first time that the Modern Warfare character has appeared in a Black Ops title.
While it’s been known for quite a while now that the Black Ops universe and Modern Warfare universes are connected, it now seems like Activision is about to link them even further than they were previously.
With the release of Black Ops Cold War & Warzone Season 3, fans are now able to get a 1984 version of Captain Price for use in both games.
Interestingly, this version is fitted with a Cold War-inspired “wetwork” outfit, which looks very similar to the one donned in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (2007).
Unlocking the Price ’84 Operator in Black Ops Cold War
The best part is that Activision haven’t put Price ’84 in a store bundle or as an unlockable in the Season 3 Battle Pass, and most players will be able to get him with ease.
In order to get your hands on Price ’84, all you have to do is either purchase a copy of Black Ops Cold War at the start of Season 3 or, if you already have a copy, just log in to Cold War after you update it to Season 3.
Given that all Black Ops Cold War Operators and skins are also available in Warzone, Price ’84 is also usable in the battle royale title too. Treyarch does mention that you’ll need to log in to Cold War first in order to unlock him in that game, but after that, he’ll be able to run around Verdansk like everyone else.
It is worth pointing out that this skin is technically counted as a new Black Ops Cold War operator, and is separate from the Modern Warfare Price operator.
All in all, it’s pretty cool that Activision is continuing to connect both series in interesting ways. Here’s hoping that they do more of it in the future.
