In addition to the world reveal inside of Call of Duty: Warzone, Activision is showing another look at Black Ops Cold War during the Opening Night stream for Gamescom 2020. Here’s everything you need to know about the broadcast.

On August 26, Activision, Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Raven Software pulled off something that’s never been done in a Call of Duty game before: exclusively reveal the next entry in the franchise inside of another Call of Duty game. Fans generally gave positive reactions to the reveal, with the trailer quickly climbing to the number 1 slot on YouTube’s trending page.


This won’t be the only premiere of the game that we get, however. During the Gamescom Opening Night livestream on August 27, 2020, Geoff Keighley will be debuting another look at the game. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

What’s going to be shown during the livestream?

Unfortunately, we have absolutely no idea what’s going to be shown during the Opening Night livestream when it comes to Black Ops Cold War and there’s been very little rumor and speculation about it either.

Given the fact that the reveal trailer for the game has already hit the internet, maybe there’s a chance that we get an extended campaign demo for the title. At the very least, it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume we’d get some interesting interviews about the story itself.


Given the fact that the Multiplayer Reveal has already been confirmed for September 9, 2020, don’t expect pretty much anything from that mode to be shown off. On top of that, it would also be unreasonable to assume that anything from the Zombies mode would be released either, as that reveal is more than likely coming at the end of September or October.

How do I watch the Gamescom Opening Night livestream?

This one is rather simple. All you have to do is go to the YouTube link (which can be found embedded below) on August 27 to catch the full show. The stream is set to start at 2 PM ET (11 AM PT, 7 PM BST) and will last around two hours.


Unfortunately, we have no idea when Black Ops Cold War will appear during the actual stream, so until a schedule is released, fans might want to plan to catch the whole thing.

Currently, that’s all we know about the reveal itself, but if there’s any updates, Dexerto will be sure to let you know.
