Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War fans got a glimpse of some of the new content that will be coming to the game as part of its first season. Photos leaked on the internet showcasing new cosmetic assets that will become available once the first season kicks off on December 10.
Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War has just been out for only a week but it appears that developer Treyarch Studios is still busy working on the game now as it was in development. The game’s first weapon update was just released yesterday, a mere five days after release, and it is anticipated that more will be coming soon as the development team looks to balance and fix the bugs inside the new game. However, as Treyarch continues to live in the moment in order to perfect their latest game, some players are already looking forward ahead of Season 1.
Reputable gaming sites report that dataminers managed to discover photos of several cosmetics coming to Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Season 1. Watches, skin variants of main characters, and keychains were just some of the items represented in the leaked images shared on Twitter by TailsDolls553. Treyarch has yet to verify these photos if they will indeed be part of the first season rewards for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War or if they will emerge further down the line.

Though most of these images are still viewable online, some were removed which were mostly focused around the game’s interpretation of the franchise classic Nuketown. The map intro and outro, load screen, and mini-map were all available for players to see, but have since been taken down.
Now, the only things that remained are a keychain and exclusive shotgun that are both distinguished, based on their file names, as Nuketown rewards. Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War will receive its version of the famous battle map, called Nuketown ’84, on November 24.
It appears suggestive of today’s quick-moving world that even with only a week has passed after the game’s release, players are already looking forward to the next new thing. While the hype is logical, it feels like the developers have not had much of a chance to fine-tune the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War to the standard it envisions.
Players have only had access to the game for just six days and while most are likely familiar with the series, there is a strong tendency many have yet to totally master whatever new features Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War has to offer.
Players should take this chance to really understand the game, specifically the elements that set it apart from other franchise games, and master it before they set their eyes on something new, even if it’s just item cosmetics.
