Its no secret that those of you who play Call Of Duty on a PlayStation system get a better deal than Xbox and PC users. That's not because Activision hates those of you who don't use PlayStation, of course, it's just that Activision and PlayStation have partnered up to give PlayStation gamers incentives and extra content.
The two companies teamed up back in 2015, and have spent the last few years giving PlayStation gamers things like early access to DLC and betas, as well as the occasional exclusive cosmetic item. Every now and again, however, PlayStation gets something a little more significant all for itself, and it's fair to say that it leaves Xbox and PC gamers feeling a little... neglected.
Last year's Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare made the Spec Ops Survival mode exclusive to PS4 for a whole year. That went down about as well as you'd expect. This year's Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War? It'll be offering an exclusive two-player Zombies mode called Zombie Onslaught - exclusive to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 until November 2021.
As you can imagine, this was met with the same level of enthusiasm as the Spec Ops Survival exclusivity. Those who aren't lashing out at the mode not being available on Xbox and PC are hitting out at the mode itself, arguing that it looks kind of rubbish.
I have no problem with the exclusivity, a year just seems excessive since the game will be past its life cycle at this point and everyone will be thinking about the next release- Austin⎊ (@King_Leggo0) October 24, 2020

don't know why people would want to play zombies on maps that aren't made for zombies. Good that they made a throwaway mode for the contract instead of locking a good one.- Korey (@Koreyzzz) October 23, 2020
Come on now. Locking games as exclusives is understandable but locking game modes is obnoxious, especially when the game costs the same on all platforms.- Manas (@Manu962k) October 23, 2020
"So basically till the release of the new COD when no one cares about Cold War anymore," one Reddit user said about the mode not hitting Xbox and PC consoles until next November, at which point Call Of Duty 2021 will likely have released.
"F**k timed exclusives," added another. "This mode doesn't look interesting in the slightest. But still, f**k timed exclusives. I don't regret buying the game on Xbox because I thought the beta was fun and I already liked the look of the Zombies mode, but still... f**k timed exclusives." I'm sure you get the main point of their message.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC on November 13th.
