Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone video gives you a look at Rambo and Nakatomi Plaza

After some teasing last week, Activision has released a trailer showing off Rambo and Nakatomi Plaza in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.

The 80s inspired Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and also Warzone, is getting some 80s movie action with the next planned update.

Teased for this week, the latest video shows off Rambo in action as well as a look at Nakatomi Plaza. You know, where "some heroes Die Hard, others draw First Blood."

Rambo is of course doing very Rambo things, and the shot of Nakatomi Plaza shows some vent crawling action with a quick glimpse of a fella inside wearing a dingy tank - which is very John McClane-like.

At launch will be John McClane via the Die Hard bundle in the Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Store from May 19 to June 18. This includes the Legendary Operator; a Finishing Move; three Legendary Weapon Blueprints – one tactical rifle, two SMG, and one assault rifle; a Legendary Calling Card and Emblem; an Epic Watch and Charm.

Week two will see John Rambo arrive via a bundle in the store which includes the Legendary Operator; two Finishing Moves, including one using his signature bow and arrow; three Legendary Weapon Blueprints – an assault rifle, an LMG, and a Knife Blueprint; a Legendary Calling Card and Emblem; and an Epic Watch and Charm.

Both Rambo and John McClane are brand-new Operators; these are not skins for previously released Operators.

You can also expect Limited-Time POIs and Mode featuring Nakatomi Plaza from Die Hard, including optional missions that can be completed for in-game rewards.

Also, plenty of campsites around Verdansk have been converted into Survival Camps as an homage to Rambo: First Blood Part 2. Here you will scavage the eight sites for loadout items and dog tags, which can be spent at the new CIA Outpost in northwest Verdansk.

At launch, Power Grab will feature over 100 Operators being dropped into Verdansk with a smaller circle collapse and five stages that progress faster than usual, and no Gulag.

You will either revive your squadmates with the Buy Station or revive them by collecting Dog Tags, dropped by Operators when they are eliminated. These can also be found as rewards for completing Contracts, and in Supply Boxes.

There will also be the Combat Bow added to Warzone as when found in Verdansk or Rebirth Island. You can also find other action movie weapons for a limited time in the updated Warzone Ground Item Pool.

New Multiplayer Maps and Game Modes are also coming.

At launch, there's Standoff, a 6v6 medium-sized map, Duga with Multi-Team Multiplayer modes, and Die Hardpoint where you will "fight against the clock" to capture Hardpoints and eliminate enemies in a race to gain 200 points, or the most points before time expires.

There's also new content for Zombies Outbreak. Cranked 2: No Time to Crank has you starting out with a Knife, as well as all Mystery Box locations active and restocked with different armaments. Eliminating your first Zombie starts a Cranked Timer. Keep it ticking with each elimination.

You can also fill out your Secondary Weapon category with two new weapons:

  • Baseball Bat: Melee (Launch Week) – Take a big swing with this classic bruiser’s melee weapon, as you knock away zombies and enemy Operators with the new Baseball Bat. (Note: The Baseball Bat will enter Warzone in Season Four after “spring training” in Black Ops Cold War Season Three Reloaded.)
  • AMP63: Pistol (In-Season) – This personal defense weapon is a cross between a self-loading pistol and a fully automatic SMG. Expect high amounts of damage in a short amount of time.
    Obtain the AMP63 and Baseball Bat during Season Three Reloaded by completing their in-game challenges or by purchasing a Blueprint version when it appears in the Store.

Season Three Reloaded goes live on May 20.
