Activision announced that the alpha version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be available to PS4 users. While they can preload and play the game, there are some who have concerns. Games like Call of Duty take a lot of time to upgrade and unlock weapons, scorestreaks, and specialists. The weapons also need to be sharpened in order to improve. As a result, players wondered if alpha progression would be ported to beta and then to the global version. Game developer Tony Flame, who worked with the Cold War team, took to Twitter to clarify.
Do you stay up late at night thinking, “But how long will it be before you ascend in Cold War Alpha? What if Ninja Perk is locked at maximum rank? What is time 2 for AK47u? “
Your time is precious so everything in Alpha from CaC to Scorestreaks is unlocked and you can enjoy it

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Alpha Details
While the alpha version only contains limited content such as game modes, weapons, ranks and maps, new content will be released in the beta version and the global version. However, the content will still be shareable and players want their progression to be ported in future releases. In response, Tony responded to his previous tweet and reassured players.
The Black Ops Cold War Alpha will have a limited amount of content, but if it’s in the Alpha you will be able to use it from game 1. There are still a ton of weapons, attachments, scorestreaks and more being saved for beta and even more for launch after. The alpha is your starter.

In his tweet, he confirmed that developers will ensure that all the advancements from the alpha version are also available in the global version. He also teased that Activision will add new content to the game over time. This is good news for those who will be playing the alpha version over the weekend. They will no longer worry about the progress they deserve. In addition, this provision allows players to gain the upper hand over those starting the beta or global version. This would be in terms of experience and skills as well as level.
Players can preload the alpha version from the Play Station Store. If players already own Modern Warfare or have installed the Spinoff Warzone Battle Royale, they can access the Black Ops Cold War Alpha from the main menu.
In addition, Tony constantly updates his Twitter with updates from the game. Updates can be received before they are officially released.
