Retired Pro Call of Duty Player Neslo Has Announced That He is Creating a New Org

Retired professional Call of Duty player Jeremy “Neslo” Olsen is looking to get back into the world of esports with a bang, and what better way than to create something of his own.

The former Team Kaliber star has announced that he plans on starting his own esports organization, and it appears that the process is already underway.

Although an official name has yet to be announced, Neslo mentioned “the new org” in a tweet in which he was looking for top and experienced graphic designers and video editor.

This could be part of the big changes coming to Neslo’s life that he had alluded to in this previous tweet.

While the plans for this new org are clearly in the very early and preliminary stages, Neslo will look to follow in the footsteps of former professional CoD players that have gone on to become successful owners, a perfect example of which is Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag with 100 Thieves.

Although there is a ways to go before Neslo can come close to replicating the success of 100 Thieves, having a former player as an owner can provide a lot of valuable insight and perspective to running an organization and communicating with its players.

Neslo’s career in Call of Duty saw him compete for nine different organizations, including three separate stints with Team Kaliber. It was during one of those stints where he won his first and only LAN tournament, at AEL Dallas 2014, and a silver medal at the MLG X Games Invitation 2014.

After splitting time this season between PURE Gaming and Ascendant Gaming, Neslo was found violating MLG account ringing rules and was suspended. Rather than wait out the lengthy suspension, the former pro announced his retirement on April 9th.

Black Ops Cold War PlayStation-exclusive Zombies mode revealed

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Onslaught players will be dropped into multiplayer maps and forced to fight the undead.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
