Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is the first Call of Duty game to launch on the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles, and publisher Activision promises several next-gen enhancements such as smoother framerate and higher resolution on the new hardware. Additionally, Black Ops Cold War will support cross-gen and cross-platform play and progression. However, fans are likely interested to know how the new Call of Duty game runs on the next-gen consoles and what specific enhancements it has over its current-gen siblings.

First up, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles are designed to improve the quality of gaming significantly over the previous-gen consoles. Thanks to the powerful hardware that both of these consoles pack, gamers can now enjoy new and upcoming games at higher framerates and stunning visual fidelity. Besides that, Treyarch has also worked closely with Sony to take advantage of the PS5's DualSense controller haptic feedback. It has been said that every pull on the controller's trigger will feel like firing a real gun. All guns in Black Ops Cold War have been specifically tuned for this haptic feedback system to deliver an exceptional experience.

Since Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is going to be a cross-platform game, Treyarch is quite aware of not giving one platform an advantage over the other. The game has been confirmed to support 120FPS, provided that you have a compatible TV that supports a 120Hz refresh rate. In addition to that, players can now also adjust the field of vision when playing on all platforms.

Moreover, the faster SSDs on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S result in a quicker loading experience, thereby eliminating long waits before having to jump into each game. We are expecting to learn more about the next-gen enhancements when comparing the current-gen and next-gen versions of the game.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is launching on November 13 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
