Popular games doing crossovers with popular brands or IP is a common occurrence, and now the current slate of Call of Duty games are getting in on the action next week. What type of action? ’80s-style action, to be specific. Announced on the official Call of Duty Twitter account, ’80s Action Heroes will be arriving in Call of Duty: Mobile, Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, and Call of Duty Warzone starting next week on May 20th. What exactly does that mean? Well based on the teaser image posted and the hints in the text of the announcement tweet, John Rambo from the Rambo movies and John McClane from the Die Hard movies will be part of the ’80s action hero… uh, action. The Call of Duty: Mobile YouTube account just posted this teaser trailer as well.
So yeah, there is definitely some Die Hard and Rambo related stuff happening when this whole thing kicks off. Will this include special game modes and events, special weaponry, or unique playable characters? All of the above? Or something totally different? I’d say anything is on the table, so be sure to fire up you Call of Duty game or games of choice next week when the ’80s Action Hero shenanigans get rolling on May 20th, and I’m guessing the various Call of Duty social media accounts will continue drip-teasing even more new information leading up to that time.
