In an unexpected turn of events, we got our first look at Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War's multiplayer alpha gameplay a little earlier than I think Activision would have liked.
Popular Twitch streamer DougIsRaw accidentally went live with gameplay last night, streaming a full seven minutes of the upcoming Call Of Duty title before it was taken down. It's unclear whether it was Twitch or Activision who shut the broadcast down, but hundreds of viewers managed to tune in and sneak a peak at the accidental gameplay preview for Black Ops Cold War before it was pulled.
While Activision has been pretty vigilant in taking down the footage anywhere it might have popped up since DougIsRaw's stream, you can currently see a little snippet below - or via this link. The footage is live at the time of writing, but be aware there's every chance it could have been taken down by the time you read this.
Going by the other prominent content creators who were spotted in the gameplay lobby, it looks as if this footage was captured during a hands-on event, and was doubtless not supposed to be going live until after the official multiplayer reveal on September 9th. The map in the video seems to be the previously leaked Miami Nightclub, and we also spotted what looked like the FAMAS assault rifle in action.
As for the mode being played? It's not entirely clear what it was, but it looks like a team-based game in which the players were working together to hold various objective points.
Of course as with any Call Of Duty game, fans are already complaining and praising in equal measure without having played it for themselves. For every comment criticising arcade-style gameplay and "floaty" physics, there were others hailing it as a return to form for the franchise. Personally, I think it looks like another solid entry for Call Of Duty - developer Treyarch rarely lets the fans down when it comes to multiplayer.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches November 13th, with rumours pointing to an open beta on PS4, Xbox One, and PC some time in October.
In other news, a reliable Call Of Duty leaker recently shared some details on the alleged scorestreaks and specialist weapons that'll be appearing in Black Ops Cold War. You can read all about that right here.
