Activision Unveils First Call Of Duty 80s Action Heroes Cinematic

Season 3 Reloaded for Black Ops Cold War and Warzone is right around the corner and with just a few days until the mid-season update for both titles goes live, Activision has released the first cinematic trailer to promote the theme of 80s action heroes.

The theme has been common knowledge for the past couple of weeks after Call of Duty's publisher began teasing the release of legendary movie characters John Rambo and Die Hard's John McClane through its social media accounts.

Players were quick to realise what Activision was planned and soon determined that the franchise was going all-in on the 80s setting provided by Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.

Check out the first cinematic trailer and some of the content included below!

The trailer reveals that Nakatomi Plaza will be arriving in Downtown Verdansk as a new point of interest that players can explore alongside a first look at how John Rambo looks inside the game.

While players do get a good look at Rambo, there is only a small glimpse of John McClane's leg as he navigates his way through the vents of the Plaza.

It's not just Black Ops Cold War and Warzone that is fully embracing the 80s theme. COD Mobile players will also be able to get their hands on Rambo and McClane who will be arriving to the game on May 20th, the same time as its sister titles.
