A video game-related easter egg discovered inside Call of Duty Modern Warfare could contain hints at the Playstation 5’s release date.

Modern Warfare is Activision’s latest installment in the Call of Duty series and players have been busy exploring the campaign and multiplayer modes.

One of the most interesting things they’ve found so far has been an Activision game console, which could contain hints towards the PS5.

What’s with Activision’s console?

The so-called ‘Actibase’ console appears on the London campaign stage and the Tavorsk District ground war map.

Call of Duty YouTuber ItsKapow discovered an Actibase advertisement on Tavorsk District that contains the date “25.11.2020”.

The Playstation 5 is also set to come out in 2020 – so this advert in the Modern Warfare universe could be a hint at when the system will drop.

Of course, it could just be a random date chosen by developers for the in-game advert – but the PlayStation 4 also came out in November, the same month hinted at in the ad.

The ad could be nothing more than scenery, and until we get more information on an official release date from Sony we probably won’t know for sure.

CD Projekt RedCD Projekt Red have stated they are developing Cyberpunk 2077 for current and next generation consoles, including the PS5.

What will the PS5 bring to the table?

It’s widely expected that the ability to play games in native 4K will be a basic requirement of the PlayStation 5. Reports suggest that developers may already have received developer kits from Sony, which line-up with CD Projekt Red’s claims that Cyberpunk 2077 was being developed for both current and next-generation consoles.

It seems that gamers will have to wait until an undated PSX event at the earliest before we receive any official confirmation from Sony about the PS5. To keep updated with the latest PS5 news and rumors follow the Dexerto Twitter page.

How to get free Black Ops Cold War & Warzone pre-Season 1 bundles

With the announcement that Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War has been delayed, Activision and Treyarch also confirmed that players will be able to get their hands on two free bundles ahead of the first content drop. Here’s everything you need to know about what it includes and how to get it.

While Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War, which was set to bring brand new maps and integrate the game with Warzone, was originally set to come out on December 10, the developers have now announced a slew of new details about the first post-content season, including the fact that it will now launch on December 16.

During this deep dive, Treyarch also confirmed that Black Ops Cold War players will be able to get their hands on some new free bundles for the game before the season launches, presumably in order to help tide people over until the new content drop. Here’s how you can get your hands on both bundles.

Field Research and Certified Bundles

According to Activision, both bundles are set to include a number of different items to use in-game. For the Field Research bundle, players will be able to grab an Epic exclusive skin for Park, an Epic SMG weapon blueprint, an Epic Reticle, and Epic Calling Card and a Rare Weapon Charm.

The news of the bundles was announced when Activision confirmed that Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War had been delayed.

For the Certified bundle, players will get a similar lineup, except the skin will be for Garcia, the blueprint will be for a Rare Assault Rifle, and the Weapon Charm will be Epic. No Calling Card is included with this bundle.

Unfortunately, we don’t know much else about the bundle and we have no idea what they will look like exactly, as Activision didn’t end up releasing any images of them. Once they become available, we’ll update this article with them.

How to get both bundles for free

Luckily, players won’t have to do much of anything to get their hands on it. That being said, they won’t be given to everyone and you do have to do a simple task to get it. According to Activision, both bundles will be given to players who log-in to the game between December 8 at 10AM PST (1PM EST, 6PM GMT) and December 15 at 11PM PST (2AM EST, 7AM GMT on December 16).

To be clear, logging in simply means that you just have to open the game and get to the main menu. Playing a match isn’t required, although the chance of players opening the game without playing it is slim, to say the least.

That being said, it’s great that Treyarch is giving it away for free. Here’s hoping it’s good enough to hold people over until the new season.
