Black Ops Cold War multiplayer has been made free for a short period of time.

This is what has brought up the question regarding the 'Trial' tag. This appears next to a player's name within Black Ops Cold War.

It has been noticed quite a bit, but simply means the players don't have the full game. They are taking part in the free Black Ops Cold War multiplayer period that Treyarch has gifted to gamers.

What does the 'Trial' tag in Black Ops Cold War mean?

It's a Christmas gift of sorts from Treyarch to the world and fans of Call of Duty. Black Ops Cold War has almost been out for two months, but many players have not yet made the transition from Modern Warfare.

The free period is almost over, but there is still time to jump in and experience Black Ops Cold War. For those with the fully purchased game, the players accessing the free period will have the 'Trial' tag next to their in-game name.


It's as simple is that. There is no secret reason behind it or anything that it affects. It is truly just to signify the players that are within their trial period.

This is a good way to notice who a player might need to be welcoming to in order to increase the Black Ops Cold War population.

The experience could very well determine if they purchase the full game or forgo it completely.
