‘Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’ fans upset over PlayStation exclusives

Elements such as extra loadouts and experience boosts will be exclusive to PlayStation users

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set for release next week, and fans of the series are disgruntled over PlayStation exclusive benefits.

Following on from the announcement of the PlayStation exclusive Zombies Onslaught mode, Activision detailed the addition benefits players on PS4 and PS5 will receive in a PlayStation Blog post.

These include extra tier skips for players that buy the battle pass bundle, 25 per cent weapon experience for PlayStation players that run together in parties, exclusive double experience weekends and two additional loadout slots.

Fans have since taken to social media to expressed their frustration at what they see as an unfair advantage gameplay-wise, as it will only be available to a single platform of the player base. On Reddit, some fans have called the move “anti-consumer”, while others feel that the exclusives are less about offering “legitimate incentives” to PlayStation users, but instead taking away features from other platforms could have.

While exclusivity is nothing new to games like Call Of Duty, fans are still upset that even core parts of the game such as loadouts are being affected by the announcement, while others are likening the class limitations to mobile game style additions.

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