Despite being a PlayStation user myself, I am honestly tired of seeing exclusive rights limiting portions of games for other platforms. Everyone pays the same amount for a game, and yet are often getting restricted to content locked behind a timer or worse content that they will never see.
I have nothing against exclusive games, but exclusive content is just offensive. We saw this trend becoming prominent last year when the developers of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare announced that its Spec Ops Survival mode would be exclusive for a full year.
In our review last year, we thoroughly enjoyed everything it offered because it was on the PS4. It would have been a different story if it was on any other platforms. Now, it seems the exclusive rights might be the new norm for the franchise as a whole.
Exclusive Call of Duty Zombies…great.
Last week, PlayStation Blog revealed more information on the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War with their new Zombies Onslaught mode that would be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and 5 for a year until November 1, 2021.
In hindsight, we probably should have seen it coming based on how aggressive Sony has been with its exclusivity for most of its games like Marvel’s Avengers since the last Call of Duty.
Despite all of that, Zombies Onslaught seems like an interesting take on the existing Zombie mode. The mode is a 2-player co-op experience that’s extremely fast-paced, so expect to be continuously on your toes with a decent buddy as your back up when things start to turn ugly.
Zombies Onslaught will not only utilize the available multiplayer maps in the game to give you a sense of familiarity of the surroundings, but it will also allow you to use your very own custom load-outs for a more personal touch.
And if you are torn between choosing to play Zombies Onslaught or the Multiplayer experience, then you’ll be glad to know that the rewards are unlockable across both modes!
With all that said, players who will be getting Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on any other platform except the PlayStation, will still have to wait a whole year to enjoy this amazing content. Now that is really unfair.
