Call of Duty: Black Ops to Have Stereoscopic 3D

by on October 6, 2010

November the 9th is a date most Call of Duty fans will already have stamped in their diary, but now there’s even more reason to be excited.

If you have the correct equipment, then it “will also be playable in stereoscopic 3D when the game launches at retail outlets worldwide on November 9th. Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) today revealed that the game will be compatible with 3D-ready HDTVs and 3D PCs utilizing state-of-the-art active shutter 3D glasses, delivering true depth of field and an unprecedented level of immersion that is perfectly suited for the Call of Duty action experience. Call of Duty: Black Ops will be playable in both 3D and non-3D on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC

Development of stereoscopic 3D began as an R&D project, but once we saw what the technology brought to the Call of Duty experience, what a great fit and how immersive it was, we knew that we had to develop it for Black Ops. Aiming down the sights of your weapons, flying in helicopters, rappelling down mountains, and moving through highly detailed environments are just some of the awesome experiences you will have in 3D with Black Ops,” says Mark Lamia, Studio Head of Treyarch”

Whilst 3D may not excite everyone and it may not be affordable to others, if you have the chance you should definitely try and play something in 3D. Used correctly it really can add to the experience, let’s hope that Treyarch nail it for the fans.
