The reveal event will be broadcasted live across all of the official Call of Duty pages and channels, including Twitch, which we’ve included below for your convenience. You can also catch the livestream on CoD’s Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook pages.

BOCW MP – what we know so far

While Wednesday’s event will be the first time Activision and Treyarch reveal official details about BOCW’s multiplayer modes, there’s been no shortage of leaks and rumors revealing quite a few details about that aspect of the game.

In fact, during a recent play-test involving Call of Duty League pros and content creators, alpha gameplay was leaked showing the new Miami map and a game mode called ‘Extraction.’

That’s not all: Prior to that, YouTuber SalvationsElite published a video containing a massive set of leaks revealing info about the various maps, modes, weapons, attachments, perks, scorestreaks, and other features that could be coming to Black Ops Cold War.

What else to expect?

It’s safe to assume that a good chunk of what gets shown on the MP reveal stream will be things that many fans are already aware of. That said, there will likely be plenty of new stuff introduced as well, including gameplay previewing the maps and mechanics.

Additionally, players have been inquiring about when BOCW’s beta will be available, so expect that to be part of the presentation. We already know that there will be an open beta that users who pre-order the digital versions will get early access to – up to five days for those on PS4.

Treyarch and Activision have also teased the return of some iconic killstreaks from the Black Ops series, in the run-up to the MP reveal, after sharing a brief clip of an RC-XD in action.

Last but not least, the Call of Duty League’s Clint ‘Maven’ Evans and Joe ‘MerK’ DeLuca are hosting the event, which means that there should be a portion of it dedicated to the CDL and official competitive CoD, especially since the format’s going back to 4v4.

Weird Warzone glitch forces players into hearing never-ending rock music

Warzone players have been rocking out to the game’s new vehicle music as they drive through the frozen fields of Verdansk. However, for some, these catchy tunes never end.

There’s no denying that Warzone Season 6 has had its fair share of problems. Aside from the train station teething problems and return of the ‘demon gun’ texture glitch, there have been some new additions to the seemingly ever-growing bugfix list.

So far, Activision has had to fix an overpowered bug that allowed the AS VAL to shoot through unlimited walls, a game-breaking unlimited Stim glitch, and now Modern Warfare fans are reporting a rock and roll related problem. 

While Warzone’s new music tracks certainly liven up your drive time commutes across Verdansk, they can also pose a risk to your game-winning plays. This is particularly true when the music in question doesn’t actually stop. The continuous blare of heavy rock certainly gets us pumped in games like DOOM, but it really doesn’t help in FPS titles like Warzone where you need to hear enemy footsteps.

What is the Warzone music glitch? 

The addition of playable vehicle music certainly isn’t a new feature in Warzone – in fact, players have been able to equip certain CoD related tracks since Season 5. However, music fans can now listen to their favorite tracks from the likes of DMX, Skrillex, Jack Harlow, and iconic themes from across the Call of Duty series. 

Unfortunately, these tunes have caused a rather interesting and mildly infuriating glitch. The bug seems to happen when you or any of your squadmates have any of the game’s War Tracks equipped and enter a vehicle. While this bug may not be that bad when listening to the game’s quieter tracks, things can get incredibly frustrating when the heavy metal Juggernaut theme plays on a loop.

You may be tempted to blow up your vehicle or drive it off the nearest cliff edge, but even this won’t stop the never-ending audio. Some players have reported that they still hear vehicle music, even when they have the audio option turned off in the game’s settings. “The rock music won’t stop, even after getting out of the vehicle. To top it off, my teammate and I had already turned the audio off before the game,” says one frustrated player

“After it just wouldn’t stop and we couldn’t hear A THING, we even destroyed the vehicle in hopes it would quiet down. Ultimately, we just disconnected when we couldn’t take it anymore.” Some Warzone players have even reported that they managed to get to the final ring with the same heavy rock track blaring down their earphones.

It seems the Juggernaut War Track is the most common offender.

Fortunately, some crafty players have discovered that you can fix this pesky audio issue by selecting the Black Ops music pack from the War Tracks menu. Meanwhile, if you encounter the problem mid-game, simply enter another vehicle in the hopes that it fixes the never-ending audio loop. 

There have even been reports that constantly getting in and out of the offending vehicle will eventually fix the issue. Of course, your experience may vary and some of these fixes may not work. Warzone Season 6 certainly seems to be off to a rocky start and it looks like we’ll just have to wait until Activision officially fixes this audio issue in a future patch.
