Call of Duty Cold War Character Creation Future Game Releases

While Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will feature a bunch of new features like choice-based endings, free post-launch DLC, and more, another surprising feature is the ability to create your character for the single-player campaign.

Previous Call of Duty games did have character creation, but it was only reserved for multiplayer modes. Black Ops Cold War will be the first game in the franchise to allow players to create a custom character for the main campaign. Custom character creation in Black Ops Cold War is a testament of Treyarch and Raven Software's joint effort in providing a more personalized CoD experience. The character created by players will be joining Alex Mason, Frank Woods, and Jason Hudson on their missions.

While creating their character, players will be able to choose their character's name, gender, psychological profile, and background.

Raven Software’s Senior Creative Director Dan Vondrake also confirmed that Black Ops Cold War will allow players to choose a gender-neutral character, whose pronoun will be stated as "they." The choice of the character's gender will also determine their voice, which can be heard during cutscenes, voice-overs, and throughout the campaign itself.

The character's psychological profile will offer minor gameplay bonuses, but cosmetics will have no effect on the campaign's progression. The only thing that will impact the campaign are the choices you make. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will have multiple endings, but the exact number is currently unknown.

While Call of Duty games are known for their fast-paced multiplayer experience, a majority of the fanbase has also yearned for a better story and cinematic single-player experience. Branching story paths, the ability to make choices, and multiple endings are all welcomed features in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. Moreover, multiple endings mean increased replay value.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is releasing on November 13 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game will also release sometime later.
