'Call of Duty: Warzone' (ALL) Honors 2020 CDL Winners With In-Game Portraits/Statue

A direct sequel to the original, fan-favorite Black Ops, and set in the early 1980s, Black Ops Cold War, drops players into the depth of the Cold War’s volatile geopolitical universe in a gripping experience where nothing is as it seems.

In addition to the story campaign, Black Ops Cold War will bring an arsenal of Cold War weapons and equipment into the next generation of Black Ops Multiplayer combat, and an all-new co-operative gameplay experience with Zombies.

In pure Black Ops style, Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War fuses elements of 1980s pop culture through a mind-bending conspiracy story, where deception and subterfuge are the norm in the gripping single-player Campaign. In this sequel to the original Call Of Duty: Black Ops, players encounter historic figures and learn hard truths as they battle around the globe through iconic locales like East Berlin, Turkey, Vietnam, Soviet-era Moscow, and more. As elite operatives, players attempt to stop a plot decades in the making as they follow the trail of a shadowy figure named Perseus, who is on a mission to destabilize the global balance of power and change the course of history. Beyond the Campaign, players will bring a wide selection of Cold War weapons and equipment into the next generation of Multiplayer combat and an all-new Zombies experience.

The title features cross-play support across current and next generation systems with cross progression across all modes. Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will also offer a Battle Pass system and deliver a steady stream of free post-launch content, including multiplayer maps and modes, Zombies experiences along with a robust schedule of in-game community events.

This Sunday, the mystery of a shrouded statue looming over Verdansk Stadium was revealed to be an in-game statue modeled after the real-world Call of Duty League championship trophy.

In addition to the Call of Duty League trophy being added as a real-world (and towering) element within Call of Duty: Warzone, this first-of-its-kind esports integration will honor the 2020 Call of Duty League champions, the Dallas Empire. As part of the celebration, Dallas Empire’s logo will rest at the base of the statue, while massive banners featuring the portraits and names of its 2020 championship-winning roster will appear above the Verdansk Stadium entrance.

Call of Duty League surprised the 2020 Dallas Empire roster with a sneak peek of the statue and their portraits within the game.

The update to lift the shroud on the statue -- designed by developers Raven Software and in close collaboration with the Call of Duty League -- will launch for all Call of Duty: Warzone players on May 10th.

Call of Duty League action continues next weekend with Major V, a 12-team tournament for half-a-million dollars, as part of the 2021 season. Matches are streamed on YouTube, and viewers can earn exclusive in-game items for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone by watching the event on YouTube accounts linked to their Activision account.

Black Ops Cold War will also support and build on the hit, free-to-play experience Call Of Duty: Warzone. Black Ops Cold War includes shared progression features with Warzone, adding brand new inventory items that can be used in both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone. Warzone players will still have access to all of their Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare content, including Operators and Weapon Blueprints previously earned.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC on
