The 80s are back, in Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War

Well, they’re here. Today’s the day that the 80s action heroes arrive in Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, with John McClane and Rambo (from FBPII).

It’s over Johnny!

No, it’s never really over, is it? Not to John Rambo anyway. The iconic action hero makes his way to Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War today, straight from his appearance in the First Blood Part II movie. He’s joined by another John, John McClane, and apparently Nakatomi Tower too.

Have a look:

Looks pretty cool! But this isn’t just about two new big-name operators, there’s much more to it than that. Activision is running with this one as a full Call of Duty event. That means a ton of new stuff for you to get and play.

Here’s the official rundown:

The ‘80s Action Heroes Event includes:

  • Operators Rambo and John McClane (Warzone and Cold War)

Warzone Content

  • New Points of Interest
    • Nakatomi Plaza
    • Survival Camps
    • CIA Outpost
