Format & prizing

The 2020 Call of Duty League postseason is a massive double-elimination tournament that’s split into two sections: the Playoffs, which run from August 19 to August 23, and the Championship Weekend, which takes place August 29 and 30.

Due to a midseason change to the format, all 12 teams are competing in the playoffs, with the top eight seeds from the regular season starting off in the winners bracket and the bottom four facing elimination right away in the losers.

CDLAtlanta FaZe, Dallas Empire, and Chicago Huntsmen all get to skip the first round of the CDL Playoffs thanks to their top-four finishes in the regular season.

The match format, as usual, is best-of-five, featuring two Hardpoints, two Search and Destroys, and one Domination. This will apply to all matches except the Championship Grand Final, which will be a best-of-nine with the team from the winners bracket starting off with a 1-0 lead.

  • Map 1—Hardpoint
  • Map 2—Search and Destroy
  • Map 3—Domination
  • Map 4—Hardpoint
  • Map 5— Search and Destroy
  • Map 6—Domination
  • Map 7—Hardpoint
  • Map 8—Search and Destroy

As for the prizing, the top 10 placing teams each earn at least a $100,000 share of the $4.6 million pool, meaning that the two sides that get eliminated in the first round will exit empty-handed.

  • League Champion—$1.5 million
  • Runner-up—$900,000
  • 3rd place—$600,000
  • 4th place—$450,000
  • 5th/6th place—$300,000 (2 teams)
  • 7th/8th place—$175,000 (2 teams)
  • 9th/10th place—$100,000 (2 teams)
  • 11th/12thplace—$0 (2 teams)

In addition to the $1.5 million, the champions will also receive a full-size throne, the 2020 championship trophy, and commemorative rings.

Black Ops Cold War is almost upon us and if you’re struggling to keep on top of the many different versions, early in-game bonuses, and even cross-gen features, we’ve got you covered.

Treyarch’s next mainline entry in the Call of Duty series is fast approaching. After a record-shattering Alpha, followed by an equally impressive Beta, it’s clear that we’re in store for one of the biggest releases in franchise history.

More players are eager to drop into the action than ever before, but preordering can be a bit confusing. There are multiple unique versions of the game that span across five platforms. For veterans and newcomers alike, it can be easy to lose track of what’s included with each edition.

If you’re wondering which to preorder, we’ve got you covered. Below is a complete rundown of every version of Black Ops Cold War.

When does Black Ops Cold War release?

Treyarch’s next big release is launching on Friday, November 13, 2020. Black Ops Cold War will be available across more platforms than many previous releases. Current-gen players can hop in on day one across the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Meanwhile, those with next-gen consoles from day one can access the game on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X + S. Of course, PC gamers will also be getting in on the fun as well.

Regardless of where you’re playing or where your friends are playing, everyone can still team up. Treyarch has confirmed that Black Ops Cold War will feature cross-platform and cross-generation play for all multiplayer modes as well as Zombies.

Digital Black Ops Cold War editions

It can be easy to lose track of what content and which features are included with the many different versions of Black Ops Cold War. Some come with weapon Blueprints while others come with the ability to play across multiple platforms.

To keep things simple, it’s worth bearing in mind that there are three main versions of the game. If you’re playing on PC, it couldn’t be simpler. Though if you’re a console gamer, things get a bit muddled due to the new generation of hardware.

Below is a full table of what you need to know. From preorder bonuses to the exact features and content provided with each version, use this as a guide before putting your money down.

Physical Black Ops Cold War editions

If you prefer to snag a physical copy of Black Ops Cold War, there are some unique details to keep in mind. With many digital versions of the game, cross-platform functionality is built-in. If you opt for a disc, however, an extra cost is associated with unlocking this cross-gen feature.

For example, if you buy a physical copy for the PS4 but want to play on PS5 in 2021, you’ll have to pay $10. It gets even more complicated if you purchase a physical copy for next-gen and want to revert back for whatever reason.

Below is a complete list of details to be wary of before buying a physical copy of Black Ops Cold War.

  • PS4 Standard Physical edition can upgrade to PS5 for $10.
  • PS5 Standard Physical edition only comes with the PS5 version. 
  • Xbox One Physical Standard edition cannot upgrade to Xbox Series X
  • Xbox Series X Standard Physical edition includes Xbox One copy
