Players were dropped into Call of Duty Warzone with several special tasks called "Steps to Freedom", this involved collecting map pieces scattered across the map, then grab a key card, crack a map code by finding a cipher, and then locate a weapon blueprint on the map by talking to a special character who was revealed to be the iconic character Woods.
All the while there were numerous callouts to the original Black Ops games with location names blacked out, screens glitching out at random moments, and unlocking Black Ops-related cosmetic items.
Completing all these steps to freedom resulted in a slightly glitched out screen with a message saying "Transmission Incoming", as the game timer slowly counted down the original Black Ops game music started to play and then the original Know Your History video started to play before quickly dropping players back into the map with an objective to run to the Stadium as a Nuke warning started to play.
After all this the official trailer finally started to play which you can watch below:
