The game description below further sheds light on the campaign’s gripping narrative.

“While the Gulf War commands the global spotlight, a shadowy clandestine force has infiltrated the highest levels of the CIA, branding anyone who resists as traitors. Exiled from their agency and country that once hailed them as heroes, Black Ops veteran Frank Woods and his team find themselves hunted by the military machine that created them.”

Prepare for intense gunfights on 16 new maps, including 12 core 6v6 maps and four “Strike” maps. Strike maps are more compact, allowing for 2v2 matches or chaotic 6v6 battles.

Black Ops 6 also introduces an innovative system called Omnimovement, which enables players to sprint, slide, and dive in any direction, including forward, sidestepping, and backpedalling.

According to the developers, this enables players to “seamlessly chain combat maneuvers together, like sliding, diving and a newly enhanced supine prone, all with a full 360 degrees range of motion.”

To further enhance gameplay accessibility and flow, the game offers Intelligent Movement. This adjustable feature automatically assists with sprinting, mantling, and crouching actions, reducing the number of button presses required for these maneuvers.
