Is Black Ops Cold War DLC Free?

Um... yes, actually.

Players can grab new maps, weapons, and more for free as part of the seasonal updates.

Whereas the Call of Duty titles of yesteryear would often split the player base between the haves and the have-nots with regards to map packs, all players have access to the new content.

That's been the case since Modern Warfare's 2019 reboot, but that doesn't mean there aren't other ways to spend your money.

While it's by no means mandatory, players can buy a Battle Pass per season that unlocks extra skins, weapon blueprints and XP boosts, while the rotating cosmetics store will also let players buy items outright.

Still, it's nice not to have to fork out for a map pack every couple of months, and hopefully that remains the case for Call of Duty 2021 takes things back to Season 1.

Speaking of which, here's all we know about this year's game
