Treyarch has announced a bunch of new details about the PC version of their upcoming game, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. In the past, Call of Duty has had some trouble with the PC platform, putting console-like limitations on the game, and not utilizing the power to its fullest. That looks like it could be changing with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 though, with many exclusive features coming.
The list is long, and full of things that PC gamers have been demanding. “100% Ranked Dedicated Servers, 2-Player Split Screen, Seamless Game Controller Support, Strong GPU scaling, SLI and Crossfire Optimizations, and 4K monitor support make the game look and run great at full 4K resolution, FOV Slider, Framerate Cap Slider, Improved Text Chat features available in-game and also now in lobbies., Fantastic Steam Trading Cards, Treyarch Anti-Cheat (TAC).”
The dedicated servers are probably the most important piece of info revealed here, with fans having requested them for the last three years. By making it so all players connect to a centralized, dedicated server, Treyarch has removed the host advantage that has plagued shooters since they first went online.
Along with this are the slit-screen options, which were later clarified to be quite customizable. You can split the screen vertically, horizontally, or even across two different monitors, giving each player a full screen experience.
More details were promised for later, so keep checking back for updates as Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 heads toward its November 6th release on PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
