    Its the most confusing thing I've seen with BC so far.
    Complete Tally: https://www.resetera.com/threads/yo...old-war-to-xbox-series-x.274979/post-43588163

    PS5 Physical Version ($70): Runs on PS5; Doesn't run on PS4
    PS5 Digital Version ($70): Runs on PS5; Doesn't run on PS4
    PS4 Physical Version ($60): Runs on PS4; Runs on PS5 via BC (no visual/performance upgrades); Offers a paid ($10) upgrade to the native PS5 version
    PS4 Digital Version ($60): Runs on PS4; Runs on PS5 via BC (no visual/performance upgrades); Offers a paid ($10) upgrade to the native PS5 version

    XBSX Physical Version ($70): Runs on XBSX; Runs on XB1
    XBSX Digital Version ($70): Runs on XBSX; Runs on XB1
    XB1 Physical Version ($60): Runs on XB1, Runs on XBSX via BC (no visual/performance upgrades); Doesn't offer a paid ($10) upgrade
    XB1 Digital Version ($60): Runs on XB1, Runs on XBSX via BC (no visual/performance upgrades); Offers a paid ($10) upgrade to the native XBSX version. <-- not sure about this; still being evaluated

    this is balls:
    Both current generation versions (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) will be playable on their respective next-generation console via backwards compatibility by downloading the game from your account’s digital library. But, the game will not include any of the next-generation features, such as higher framerate, hardware based ray-tracing, faster load times, and more.


    About as much text as Ubisoft versions.
    Cross-generation compatibility

    • PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5: Purchase the Ultimate Edition on PlayStation 4 and receive a digital entitlement to both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions of the game.

    • Xbox One and Xbox Series X: Purchase the Ultimate Edition on Xbox One and receive a digital entitlement to both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X versions of the game. The Xbox One version will download immediately to your console when Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launches on November 13th.

    So if you get the physical version of the XB1 you can't upgrade. The digital version is still TBD.

    All PS4 version are upgradable for 10$.

    edit: MS is doing Activision a favor by forcing every XBO user to buy the next-gen version just in case.

    so basically this is what Activision did from a technical perspective on Xbox.
    2 SKUs: XSX and XBO
    • XSX supports the smart delivery license
    • XBO is XBO only license no smart delivery support.
    Here's the kicker @jayco tell me what to expect in terms of stuff for us 4Pro and X1X owners? Because it's sounding like they didn't make that version. I did a ctrl+F on that FAQ page, 4Pro and X1X do not come up. Here's some interesting language:

    Crossplay across all hardware formats sounds good.

    No I mean the missing out on 4 Pro and X1X language as part of that.

    Maybe it's a given? That the premium systems are still covered under their respective [original] brand names.

    Nah, it’s the first time I’ve not seen details on mid gen enhancements for such a large release. And listing Xbox One and Xbox One S but not the X is suspect.

    I think it’s on purpose to move those to the PS5 and XSX versions respectively.

    both mid gen devices are normally capable of fauxK60 and I think they moved this to next gen to charge more.

    It's still possible it's upgraded, but they certainly aren't talking about it.

    Though come to think of it this is basically a cross gen game....it's likely running 1080p(dynamic) 60fps on PS4....so 4K(dynamic) 120fps on next gen consoles may very well be possible?....

    Looks really good for a cross gen game, better than i expected.. Base consoles going to suffer heavily i suspect.

    Love it or hate it, COD has been looking mighty fine since the last MW remake. Ray Tracing on PS5 while running that fast? Interesting.

    Did they show any actual gameplay? The last bit in the desert looked really nice if that's how it looks while playing.

    I understood that as a peek at the large scale mode in multiplayer with the preceding footage as single player. Hence the drop in visuals.

    The audio in the new single player demo at the Sony thing was some of the best positional audio I've heard in a game.

    Time for the Quake Engine to be retired.
    Call of Duty modern Warfare blows this away.
