But fans of the game may have noticed that the usual array of merchandise and tie in promotions are already starting to hit shops.
In the case of Black Ops: Cold War it's once again another Mountain Dew and Doritos tie in offering fans the chance of 2XP for those who buy the snacks and punch the codes into a website.
The only problem with these promotions is that they vary wildly from one country to the next. So in order to bring a bit more clarity to the situation, here's everything you need to know.
Where Is The Black Ops Cold War Mountain Dew & Doritos UK Promotion?
If you're wondering if this promotion is valid for UK residents, then in a word, no.
At the time of writing Activision, Mountain Dew and Doritos look like they have only partnered for two sites international sites:
• One is for US-based residents: https://dewanddoritos.com
• Another is for Canadian players: https://dewanddoritos.ca
Both of these sites can be used to redeem codes to get your 2XP, and it's not difficult at all.
Incidentally, the T&C's warn that this is limited to "Max 160 codes per person" and "1 hr 2XP per day"; but honestly we can't imagine how anyone could eat or drink that much Mountain Dew or Doritos
However, from what we can see, there's no UK or European promotion. At least, at the time of writing anyway.
Although there is still room to be hopeful.
When Will The UK Black Ops Cold War Promotion Start?
As we say, there's room to be hopeful.
Although this Black Ops Cold War promotion doesn't appear to be live for UK residents right now, it's could be introduced in a couple of weeks.
Last year the very same Mountain Dew and Doritos promotion went live in the UK on November 5.
In fact, the FAQ for this same Mountain Dew and Doritos Modern Warfare promotion is still live right now and gives fans of the game some insight into how it will be run.
We've popped some of the key details further down, just to help readers out.
But we believe we could see this promotion introduced to UK residents shortly. After all, why would you not open this 2XP offer to a massive portion of the world, where these products are sold, just like they've done before.
So hold tight - we'll update this page as and when more info becomes available.
