The official reveal trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War has confirmed that a pre-order will get you the Woods Operator skin plus early access to the open beta. 

Check out the trailer for Black Ops Cold War below.

If you pre-order a digital copy of Black Ops Cold War you'll get early access to the open beta, which will arrive first on PS4 (at least five days before it arrives elsewhere, btw). You'll also get instant access to the Woods Operator pack in Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare, plus a special weapon blueprint.

At the end of the trailer, around 02:15, we get a glimpse at the multiplayer for Black Ops Cold War, which looks like it might have a Ground War mode. We'll get an official reveal of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer on September 9. We'll keep you updated on where and when you can catch that reveal.

We had an idea that Black Ops icon Frank Woods would be heading to Warzone after a datamined video showed his Warzone intro video - now we know for certain.

That datamine also revealed a few other items that could be available to those who pre-order Black Ops Cold War, but have yet to be officially confirmed. These pre-order items look to include cosmetics, weapons, a Season 1 battle pass bundle and the “Land, Sea and Air” pack. You gotta love it.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War reveal trailer is jam-packed with fantastic music (hello, New Order) and heart-pumping action - all recorded via gameplay on the PS4. And it looks good. "This war was a lie," the voiceover says. "Years of blood just to light the fuse of a secret war decades int he making. The trailer jumps from the '60s to the '80s, implying you'll do the same thing during gameplay.

A Soviet agent is active, implying something big is going to happen that could shift the Cold War. Naturally, you'll be at the center of it. 

Oh, and we got the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War release date, too.
