Here is everything we know about Call of Duty: Black Ops 6!

Treyarch has returned to helm the latest Call of Duty franchise installment, Black Ops 6. Set to take place during the Gulf War, the game transports players to the early 1990s. The Xbox Games Showcase 2024 provided a sneak peek at what to expect from the campaign before an in-depth 25-minute look at the campaign, multiplayer, and zombies. Here is everything we learned from the Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 reveal before its October 25 release date.

Black Ops 6 reveal provides a first look at the campaign

The Black Ops 6 campaign reveal provided much of what you might expect from a Call of Duty trailer. There were many explosions, helicopters, crumbling buildings, and, of course, guns. Based on the official game description, the campaign centers around the end of the Cold War as the United States "rise as a single superpower."

Here is a Black Ops 6 description pulled directly from the Xbox website:

"Developed by Treyarch and Raven, Black Ops 6 is a spy action thriller set in the early 90s, a period of transition and upheaval in global politics, characterized by the end of the Cold War and the rise of the United States as a single superpower. With a mind-bending narrative, and unbound by the rules of engagement, this is signature Black Ops.

The Black Ops 6 Campaign provides dynamic moment-to-moment gameplay that includes a variety of play spaces with blockbuster set pieces and action-packed moments, high-stakes heists, and cloak-and-dagger spy activity.
