Treyarch’s Director of Tech (@pcdev) has confirmed on Twitter that Black Ops 3 will run 100% on dedicated servers on PC for all ranked matches.

Details regarding servers for consoles haven’t been announced as of now.

He has also confirmed that there will be an FOV slider for PC, similar to previous Black Ops titles.

      He is getting old I mentioned. From new pictures on twitter.

    • Michael:GodOfEWN

      Yea it seems most people are riding his balls. Until he nerfs something and receives death threats.

      P.s. I heard that Vahn was quiting treyarch after this game? Is this true or just bullshit?

      • Jay Gautreau

        can’t see it, he’s been working there for 10+ years. At least I hope this is a rumor that does not come true.

        • ScOott

          I think it will depend on how much further he thinks he can take the series … I’d want to leave on a high and sail of into the sunset with everyone “in love” with me if I was him… I don’t want him to leave but all good things come to an end eventually ..

      • Bolbi Stroganovsky

        Yea, that was pretty sad when he got so many death threats by whiny 13 y/o snipers+”trickshotters” after that sniper nerf.

        Hope he doesn’t quit; it’s like his family…

      • Blaine

        That makes me sad. I could understand it though, I’m sure it wears on you, he’s getting older, and he’s made his fortune. And he’s a saint for putting up with this community for this long. All good things must come to an end, but I have unlimited respect for Vahn, I’ll cry when he quits.

    • Drasadex

      I expect your opinion of Vondy to change on November 6.

      • peter

        Remember remember the 6th (rewording actual quote) of November, the gunpowder treason and plot… (basically every cod storyline)

    • zombiefreak935

      If only he could make a good trailer. Then he would be epic.

      • ScOott

        Yh the trailer was really disappointing … I expected more from a cod trailer … something’s gone wrong when ci articles are getting you more pumped for the game than the trailer .. Imo

        • Bodie Broadbent

          yeah but they did announce it pretty early so it’s better than nothing

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          But there was actual gameplay… not some pointless trailer explaining the crap story for three minutes.

          • ScOott

            Yh, maybe I’m comparing it to multiplayer trailers that’s why it didn’t seem great who knows ..

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I prefer gameplay lol

      • jordanxxxbrookes

        Who gives a flying fuck if the trailers are “supbar” in your opinion? The song was epic, there was some gore involved and it didn’t make you not want to buy the game. I mean you guys will nitpick anything. Obviously I don’t think you truly care and is just an observation but COD players tendency is just to be negative about any and every thing. That’s besides the fact he isn’t the damn VP of trailers…

  • Now console dedicated server plz and thnks.

  • VVFZ

    Bring them to console please! Sick and tired of the bs lag we get in every cod game at launch every single year.

    • Jay Gautreau

      Microsoft has there Azure Servers, so that make me believe that we will be getting them on console aswell. Not sure what PS has though.. as I’m not a PS player.

  • iTYPE2ANNOY

    who cares about PC? (smallest fan base) xbox360 version better have dedicated servers, too.

    • SoulTaker

      So how about those Microsoft Azure servers.

      • iTYPE2ANNOY

        huh?

        • SoulTaker

          They are Microsofts official dedicated servers that are apparently used for multiplayer games on the Xbox platform???

          • Jay Gautreau

            Titanfall being one of them. Halo 5 Rumored to be another,

          • SoulTaker

            Hopefully all platforms can enjoy dedis man.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            yeah like xbox360, especially.

      • Jay Gautreau

        They will be used, calling it now.

    • Daniel

      Xbox 360? Lol

    • Jay Gautreau

      there will be no Xbox 360 Version of the game, sorry to break that to you. I’m 99% sure there will not be.

      • CrowReap .

        there was an article on the last gen lol do you even read?

        • Jay Gautreau

          I can guarantee that there will not be, just wait and see. Sorry but it’s time for you kids to get a job or start doing chores to save money to get a Current Gen Console or PC.. #TRUTH

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            it’s not that I can’t afford it, next gen consoles are just a waste of money cause they’re not even that much better…hardly noticeable in game performance. & I have a PC, but PC gaming is just lame and the PC fanbase is lame. (see pic below)

          • Lawfulmaxhavoc

            The graphical difference from Xbox 360 to Xbox One is tremendous, as is the smoothness of navigating the console

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            Graphics are hardly even that much better, i’ve played on both. I am not impressed by the “next gen” it’s just a sales gimmick.

          • Jay Gautreau

            I really hope you are trolling……………………………………………….

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            Just because I’m not impressed by next gen consoles doesn’t mean I’m trolling, you idiot.

          • Jay Gautreau

            okay. have a great day there little jimmy.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            Okay Jay Gautreu, tell your 36 subscribers on Youtube that I say “Hi”

          • Jay Gautreau

            thanks sure will… thanks for talking the time to give me a view on that video lol

          • burrgee

            I could have told you that about 20 comments ago.

          • Lawfulmaxhavoc

            Playing Fifa from one to the other is night and day, but I cannot tell you how to spend you money. But if you are looking for one, I believe there are some deals for trade ins to cut down on the cost

          • Michael

            “Smoothness of navigating the console” Hell no! The Xbox One’s interface is way worse than the 360’s.

          • “..smoothness of navigating the console”

            Are you serious? Xbox Ones user interface is probably the worst, most frustrating, poorly thought out “user interface” I’ve ever used. Of anything. Period.

            If it wasn’t for the fact I love XB1’s controller I’d have gone to PS4 a LONG time ago.

          • Jay Gautreau

            Well for one there is a huge difference between Xbox 360/Xbox One and PS3/PS4, clearly you have not demoed one at you local Gamestop/EB Games/Game UK. If you have you would know that there is very big differences, Advanced Warfare as a example looks like ass on the Xbox 360 and when I play it on the Xbox One it looks and play 110%. But to each his own, guess you will be playing black ops 2 for years to come becasue “LAST GEN” is a goner now. almost every DEV’s are canceling there games becasue on Console Limitations. Sad but the #TRUTH

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            nice hashtag you fag. Just wait and see. Besides I have played xbox one and that console is trash, it’s not that much better. Graphics are not that much better either. The gameplay is the same.

          • Jay Gautreau

            well jabs I see, okay now I know what type of person you are I will just leave it be. have fun with black ops 2 for real though.. Tell your mom and dad to start saving there pennies so little jimmy can get his Xbox One or PS4

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            you missed the part when I said it wasnt about being able to afford it, but just not being impressed by it.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            do you usually keep photos of children with an unfortunate medical condition on your computer or something ? How sad and sick your life must be…

          • Hirasu Satsugai (Xayo)

            If they’re a waste of money why are you even here? If you hate current gen consoles, too bad for you.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

            I prefer the game experience over the graphics. The graphics are not even that much better, that is all. As I have clearly stated way too many times, yet thick-headed people like you cease to understand.

          • Mario Rivera

            I swear, these bums on old gen will make up any excuse to justify staying there forever at the expense of every1 else. Knock it off… AW, BF, NBA2k and many other cross gen games look, play and recieve dogshit like support compared to next gen. If ur still paying the same $60 per game regardless, why accept the red headed stepchild treatment if u dnt have to? U cant expect a 10 year old piece of hardware to continue keeping up with todays evolutions. Look dude i know $350-$400 aint exactly chump change for every1 but on the same note its by no means un-attainable either for something with at least 8+ years of support left. Its 2015 bruh, If ur on this site typing lengthy responses chances are u are a hardcore gamer that wouldnt still be on old gen by choice lol. I get it, i grew up very poor myself. I remember just getting a sega genesis when every1 else around me had ps2, xbox etc. The thing about that is i didnt bitch and moan about not having the latest and greatest games watered down to support my poor ass cuz i knew what it was. Gaming is a luxury, If i wanted that stuff i knew i was gonna have to work and save for it and thats exactly what i ended up doing. Till this day i very much enjoy and appreciate retro gaming as far back as the NES. If ur the same, more power to you but dnt bitch about not being able to continue watering down todays evolution by choosing to stay in the past. This is the 3rd next gen cod, its long been time for a true next gen experience.

          • ScOott

            lol il bet you your name that your wrong! If your wrong you have to change your name to what ever I say ? Confident now buddy ?

          • CrowReap .

            this is a business you know think about all the sales they would be losing if they didn’t make it for last gen. plus im not a kid I have x1 lol

    • Someone is butthurt

    • burrgee

      Troll much lol…

  • SoulTaker

    Well looks like I’ll be buying it once again on PC then. Sounds great Dedis and a FOV slider I can’t go back to consoles ever since I’ve been used to a 80 FOV.

    • RdJokr

      Max FOV would probably be 90 like BO2, so you’re probably gonna do fine.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        There may be no limited frame rate.

        • RdJokr

          I wasn’t even talking about frame rates.

  • ysi

    imma ps4 guy, but i respect PC, unlike xbox fan boys, PC master race

    • Jay Gautreau

      ha and why dont you respect Xbox people? reasoining?

      • ysi

        i didn’t disrespect them either…. they are okay i guess

        • Jay Gautreau

          yeah see I think you are contradicting yourself. I own a Xbox one and I have nothing but respect for PS4 and PC, every gaming device such as console an PC have there strong and weak points.. Just be glad that we have these products.

          • ysi

            what you think might not be true lol

          • Lawfulmaxhavoc

            Opinions can’t be wrong though…

          • ysi

            if it can’t be wrong then it can’t be right…………

          • Lawfulmaxhavoc

            Who said it was?

      • Respect consoles….ok then

      • PewPewPew

        cmon boy, please use your brain. he is a CONSOLE (PS4) player but still he respect PC. unlike those CONSOLE fan boys who really dedicated their life on console, giving negative comments to other platforms. please understand the comment, use your brain if you have some.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Have you seen your fanbase?

    • bad2daboner

      I disagree I hate sony besides there Bluetooth speakers are very good.

    • Hirasu Satsugai (Xayo)

      How old are you ten? You seriously have no life if you’re hating on a console. Get the fuck out or grow some balls.

      • PewPewPew

        are that dumb boy? he’s not hating the console. he’s telling that he give respect to all platforms. NOOB

        • PewPewPew

          are you*

    • PewPewPew

      want some hug man? you deserve respect.

  • LovekillerX

    So it looks like PC players are getting attention which they haven’t got in a while. Congratulations I’m happy for you guys although I’m on PS4.

    • Jay Gautreau

      I’m glad the game is based on PC, then ported to Xbox One And PS4. that mean we will get the best that are consoles can handle. #InVahnWeTrust

      • Nadt Boonmee

        errr nope…they may make game from pc but the first they optimize to is ps4 then port it to xbox 1 and do the hardest work. port it to pc.

        Ghost and AW prove what happen if they do a bad port that come with bad optimizing and non compressed files. some one called it a copy paste port.

    • Ben

      Attention would mean that PC gamers will have dedicated servers WITH a server browser. This is far from that.

      • Blaine

        Hey, it’s a lot more than we’ve gotten in the last 2 games. Baby steps.

        • Ben

          Not really, Black Ops II’s public playlists was powered by dedicated servers too, unlike here. And the FoV slider exists in the previous 3 CoD’s, so it’s actually the same shit.

          But it doesn’t matter for me anymore, I’m gonna get the game for Xbox One (since Ghosts pretty much fucked the PC as a platform for me).

          • RdJokr

            Ghosts and AW both lack FOV sliders in single player. And Ghosts’ FOV slider didn’t even arrive till 2-3 patches later.

            AW’s FOV slider is almost ok, if it weren’t for the issue causing it to reset to default after viewing 3rd person teammate.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Give it to console too and I’ll lick vonderhaars bald head.

      • PewPewPew

        server browser? I don’t think so but hopefully. They didn’t mention anything.

    • PewPewPew

      please have my respect man, you deserve this. pc gamer here.

  • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

    About time PC get s some love.

  • bad2daboner

    What about that zombies tho?

  • Ryumoau

    i really hope they have Dedicated servers planned for PS4 as well since i can’t imagine the pc CoD install base being enough bigger than console gamers that they would be the only ones to get this. 🙁

    • SoulTaker

      Since PC is smaller that’s why they are doing it since it would be cheaper than supporting PS4 which is large all comes down to money I hope you console gamers can get them to Xbox One has the Azure servers apparently, so I hope Sony helps and gets you guys some dedis.

    • DEMOLITION12

      ghosts had dedicated servers, i think aw does too? not sure about that

      • RdJokr

        Yes, but they used a hybrid server system, so when dedicated servers are down for whatever reasons, they could switch over to listen servers to ensure the game is playable 24/7.

  • As long as there’s no actual server browser it is pointless.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Not pointless. The matchmaking would still be on dedis. I hope you know the definition of the word pointless.

  • JackIt’sMe

    Watch out,ok,there will be dedicated servers as Black Ops I and II but it will be probably matchmaked dedicated servers hosted by treyarch like black Ops II (not rented servers controled by player and server browser)

    However,still good news if we look the two previous CoD on PC…

  • Tsaki

    I guess that means that League Play is confirmed?

  • Freeze

    Fuck yes yes yes oooooh ooooooooooooh! I am in PC heaven. I am going to purchase for both PS4 (already preordered) and PC

  • Guywithbrains

    Note: the game is alpha version so it can also change… but so far Black Ops 2 TTK fans can be happy…

    https://twitter.com/Drift0r/status/592785749830930432

    • Bolbi Stroganovsky

      I personally loved BO2 TTK; hope it stays that way…

      • Raptor

        Agreeed!

      • Yep. Ghosts and AW TTK were horrible imo.

        • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

          Ghosts was awful TTK., haven’t noticed anything wrong with advanced warfares tbh, it needed slightly quicker TTK because of the exo movements.

          • Maybe I am getting mixed up with getting shot at on all angles (due to the exo suits).

          • Blaine

            AW TTK is slower than BO2.

          • I always thought BO2 was slower than AW…

          • Xx_ThomesAnTennksweg_xX

            I think it depends on the weapons, TTK is is quicker on weapons like asm1, bal 27 or the heavy weapons but then on the underpowered weapons its the same or a bit slower.

    • Nice~ and here is something [funny] that is related to Drift0r… https://twitter.com/DavidVonderhaar/status/592741334592704513

    • Guywithbrains

      • I personally don’t have an issue with quickscoping (even I myself do it when I want to mess around games/have fun, lol). Also, it will most likely be changed or modified by the time the game releases.

        • Mario Rivera

          Quickscoping is fine as long as snipers actually flinch and reg guns dnt need 50 hitmarkers b4 they kill

    • ScOott

      This game just keeps sounding better and better … Thanks 4 the post ..

      • Guywithbrains

        No problem mate. 🙂

    • Thatlazykid

      I know i sound retarded but what is ttk?

      • time to kill

      • Tricky VIk

        “Time To Kill.”

        • ScOott

          Is their an echo in here, is their an echo in here …

          • No, it is not… is not..

          • ScOott

            Please let’s not do this, do this …

    • Pete

      I just want to know if snipers are still the best smg’s/shotguns in the game, exactly like it was in BO2.

      • Guywithbrains

        Youtubers have said sniping is fun and SMGs are viable. However, some Youtuber said “shotguns shoot marshmallows”.

        But it was pre alpha build if I heard right.

        • Nadt Boonmee

          why it not shoot bean bag instead i wonder ?

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Fuck off. Platform bias much?

    • Blaine

      Oh like COD hasn’t been biased towards consoles, specifically Xbox, for about 8 years now… GTFO

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        So now it’s okay since it’s pc? Idiot.

        • FoV Sliders, and dedicated servers are the norm on PC, that’s what your game needs to compete with the other PC games, look at BF4 and CS:GO There’s no platform bias here, you need a higher FoV on PC since you’re right up on your monitor when 95% of console players are playing on their TV’s, the PC players deserve everything they ask for since what they had to put up with since MW2 onwards.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Pc cod is NOT NEARLY as big as console, so being biased is stupid. There’s no excuse. I deserve dedis too. No special treatment.

          • PewPewPew

            you just said it, “pc cod is not nearly as big as console” don’t you ever think that you already have that “biased” for how many years? I guess we pc gamers deserve this time. please open your very narrow mind. don’t be so stupid.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Fuck off, troll. I’ve addressed this multiple times; ANY KIND OF PLATFORM BIAS IS UNFAIR. You don’t deserve exclusive shit. Get out.

          • Then go cry to Activision, they choose whether to use MS’s Azure or use Dedicated Servers for Sony, don’t whine about PC getting features that EVERY OTHER PC GAME gets, PC gets Dedicated Servers cause it’s really cheap to mass-host PC servers than PS4. I play CoD on X1 and I know that PC getting what they want is excellent and well-deserved.

            Edit: There’s also 9 million concurrent Steam users logged in Daily, that’s more than the X1’s playerbase, to say that the console playerbase is bigger than the PC userbase is a blatant lie. please research what you are trying to argue.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You’re ignorant. So it’s okay to have pc dedicated servers because it’s in other games, but it’s not okay for Xbox to get timed exclusive content? Wrong. Both are bad. Both shouldn’t be practiced. Its giving a platform exclusive features.

            Last time I checked, PlayStation Network has the biggest amount of concurrent people online, and ps4 has 20 million consoles sold. Cod is biggest on console, that is a fact.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            And my god you’re biased… NO SPECIAL TREATMENT

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        And I thought Microsoft dlc first was bs too. Don’t jump to fucking conclusions.

    • RdJokr

      U mad bro? Don’t be sour that we’re getting the attention we deserve now.
      Besides, it’s not like you console guys need FOV slider. And you’ve already had dedicated servers with the last two games (not 100% though, but still).

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I know what you mean, but in saying platform bias on a third party game is bs period. Idc about FOV I’m talking dedis.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        And guess what? YOU had dedis also. In ghosts, AW, world at war, AND cod4, we only had them for ghosts and AW, so my sourness is logical. Perfectly logical. If you bitched about Microsoft bias then that’s hypocritical. I never wanted bias on any platform.

        • RdJokr

          No, it’s not bias. It’s necessity. If you want equality on every platform, you need to treat each platform properly, not treat all of them using the same method. It doesn’t work that way. What works for X1 and PS4 doesn’t necessarily work for PC, or even last gen consoles.

          The Microsoft bias is a whole other issue, because it doesn’t deal with technical issues like dedicated servers. It deals with the way each platform is treated in terms of updates and support. And I don’t think I need to remind you just how bad it was for Playstation and PC the last couple of years.

          You guys still have it better than us though. With the hybrid system, you can still play on listen servers if they want to do dedi server maintenance. We’re playing 100% dedi here, so dedi downtime means game downtime, no way round.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Ugh… you are essentially getting exclusive features. Don’t twist it by saying ignorant crap like “it’s technical and a necessity! It’s pc!” Because that doesn’t give you the right for have special exclusive treatment. What if consoles had exclusive content pc can’t have?

            The Microsoft bias was no different. You’re getting 100% dedicated ranked servers, not dlc a month early. That is far worse and you’re excusing it.

            Treat each platform properly? That’s my point, they’re not, where consoles are concerned. Pc guys are really showing their hypocritical idiocy.

          • RdJokr

            “What if consoles had exclusive content pc can’t have?”

            Oh, you mean like split screen? Local play? Please, you act like you’re being given absolute shit here. You’re not.

            I don’t know if you have noticed, but listen servers are an absolute mess for PC players, because of the lack of players. Console players are abundant, so even if you guys get matched up in listen servers, you would still be playing in your region, and host advantage will be minimal. There would almost be no difference from pure dedicated servers.

            PC, on the other hand, has been seriously lacking players. All because of the misguided idiots telling everyone that listen servers are P2P, and that the game doesn’t have dedis. It’s a major turnoff for PC players in general, so something has to be done to keep them interested. Plus, with the lack of players, playing on listen servers would definitely be a huge issue, because host advantage will be super obvious.

            And DLC is the least of my concerns regarding the Microsoft shenanigan. You’ve seen how Playstation and PC took turns to be shafted with AW: constantly delayed updates, devs basically ignoring the players and doing no communication at all (even though they did fix things in the game). While golden boy Xbox gets treated like Jesus fucking Christ. That is what I don’t want. What I want is for the developers to address platform-specific problems, and answer questions from each platform’s community truthfully, rather than seeing Condrey exo-dodging PC questions on purpose.

            You don’t like the server system, you’re more than welcome to spam Vahn and tell him your opinion. Just don’t go hate on PC players because we’re supposedly not going to suffer with you.

            I’m talking about exclusive content. Split screen is one, but that it not a beneficial feature that gives you an advantage. Pc does have Local Play.

            Full dedicated servers is just that. It doesn’t matter the population. You complain about Xbox dlc, but it’s fine as long as you get your special treatment, right? This game is third party, the server features that you have, I should have, too.

          • RdJokr

            Well then ask Treyarch. Who knows, maybe this year you guys are getting 100% dedis too. PCDev is just nice enough to confirm that for us PC players first.

            Oh, and I can definitely confirm local play has been out of PC for a LONG time. I can’t even remember the last COD that had local play.

            And since when are dedicated servers “exclusive content”? That is a game feature. No more different than split screen or local play.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Elaborate what you mean by Local Play. You can play against bots, similar to console. You don’t have features taken out. Only split screen.

            Exclusive features shouldn’t exist. Pc in general doesn’t support split screen. Boohoo. Its not a necessity like dedis. Tbus is like getting exclusive content, because it’s unfair for YOU to have stable connections, but not me, because I chose to play on a certain platform. Its a third party game. No special treatment.

          • RdJokr

            By local, I mean LAN play. That doesn’t exist on PC anymore.

            And like I said before, whether you guys get 100% dedicated servers or not is not my problem. Go talk to Vahn, or anybody at Treyarch about that. I sure would love to share my 100% dedicated server system with you guys, but that’s not up to me. If they haven’t done it by now, then there’s most likely a technical reason behind it.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I know what you mean. I’m asking what the premise of local play was other than playing solo.

            Asking the developers is like talking to a wall. They wouldn’t give a straight answer, which is why I’m telling you that it’s fallacy to excuse this. Not technical, it’d be financial.

          • RdJokr

            Local play is offline. That’s one thing you can’t do on PC anymore. You have to be online to play, or you get diddly squat. It’s not normally an issue, but when your internet connection takes a huge dip for whatever reasons, local play is the next best thing. And yet, PC has been lacking that for years now.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I didn’t think it would be. You mean against bots? Probably not the case in bo3.

          • RdJokr

            You are right about this being more of a financial reason though. Dedicated servers, as well as many other procedures for COD, are just cheaper to be done on PC than on consoles, because of all the policy BS that Microsoft and Sony have with their respective consoles. Valve is much more open-minded when it comes to this aspect. Hybrid server system is pretty much the balanced solution: giving console players dedicated servers, at a lower cost than setting up 100% dedis.

            So why not use the same system for PC, like Ghosts and AW? According to Drift0r, Treyarch devs made a clear statement at their press briefing, that they are aware of the state of COD on PC the last few years. They want COD to be huge on PC again, like the COD4 days. So they have to go the extra mile here to regain PC gamers’ trust, and have them invest in COD again. Listen servers were a disaster in AW, so giving us the hybrid system again isn’t going to cut it.

            I’m not going to prolong this argument any further than it has to be. The bottom line is, PC is getting 100% dedicated servers, whether you like it or not. Personally, I’d want all platforms to share the experience we’re getting as well. But that’s not up to me. That depends on whether Activision and Treyarch are willing to invest more in you guys.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You missed my entire point, though. I don’t care if it’s something you think you need, the point ism is that it is not fair on a third party game. What if ps4 had exclusive 100% dedicated servers? I could say that we needed them because PlayStation was never supported well in cod, and whether you like it or not, talk to Activision about it. Is that not annoying? That’s like taking an entire feature out of the game.

            I’ve tried to talk to the Treyarch pcdev, and I doubt he cares.

    • PewPewPew

      i smell so much hatred in this comment that will form (or maybe already) into hacker soul.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        That’s because pc fans are the most whiney and hypocritical.

        • PewPewPew

          I am a console fan but I personally don’t know how to use controller properly on FPS games, I grow up using keyboard and mouse on FPS games. But still don’t generalize everyone.

        • PewPewPew

          and please don’t so be a crying bitter baby. you console players already have this some kind of “premium” service for how many yearsssssss. you sould be happy for us, for PC gamers.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Fucking moron. We haven’t had EXCLUSIVE CONTENT on cod. Ever. You have. Hypocrite.

    • MyKogInYourAshe

      Dude wtf, why are you so mad because of a fucking post? You’re saying “Platform bias much?” but you’re doing the excatly the same fucking thing. You’re biasing towards consoles :/

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        What? Did you not see my other comments? I said any platform bias is bad because it is a third party game.

        • MyKogInYourAshe

          I don’t know if you remember but we (PC Players) could barely play CoD Ghosts. It was an abismal port. 1k $ pcs couldn’t run the game properly. Do you understand how shitty that is?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Do you know hoe bad that game was generally? You had a good black ops 2 port. You had dedis on older cods. Just because there was one bad port, doesn’t mean they should make features exclusive to you. Its a third party game that seems to have equal marketing. We deserve full dedicated servers on ALL PLATFORMS.

  • Comrade

    Anyone know why consoles don’t get FOV sliders?

    • ScOott

      Accidentally edited this post by accident … I’m not getting into it again but I basically said what Blain said, just in a bit more detail … It was nice of him to have a go, so il leave it like that 🙂

    • Blaine

      Because wider FOV takes more rendering power, and graphics on consoles are already pushed to the max the hardware can handle. Increasing FOV would require slightly downgrading graphics to maintain the 60fps. Plus, comfortable FOV depends on how far away you sit from your screen. When you are 2 feet away from a PC monitor, 65 FOV causes motion sickness, but it’s comfortable sitting across a room with a huge TV. If you set 90 FOV when playing on a large TV across a room, it would be difficult to see the details of the environment (everything would look too small, zoomed out). This is all from experience, playing my PC on a 50″ TV

      • ScOott

        Please, you have just made my reply look pathetic … Mr smart arse

        • Blaine

          haha sorry!

          • ScOott

            Lol it’s fine … My post has now had a slight edit 😉 ..

      • Devin Wolfe

        To high a FOV makes me feel like I have no control over my gun or shot I don’t see how people find 90 FOV appealing and I call bullshit on the whole simulation sickness thing I mean it’s not that hard to distinguish between the game moving and you sitting still and yes I sit 2 feet away from my monitor playing on 65 FOV. Having Adult ADHD doesn’t hurt either as your brain is always on the move.

        • Primey_

          You call bullshit on a real sickness? Just because it doesn’t happen to you doesn’t mean it’s bullshit.

          Put me in front of a fast paced game, close to the monitor and a low fov (anything under 90) and I quickly get nauseated.

          • Devin Wolfe

            To me its just a placebo effect as at 90 FOV it looks like you are running much faster than at 65 which logically would make you more sick so yes to me it is a bullshit “sickness”.

          • Primey_

            It is not placebo or bullshit just because you don’t suffer from it.

          • Devin Wolfe

            It kinda is.

      • Comrade

        Thanks for telling me!

  • Blaine

    Heil PC Dev!!!

    It is so refreshing to get a proper PC version of COD again. Ghosts and AW just totally shit on the PC community, nearly killing off the small remaining community entirely. BO2 was still a port, but it was an excellent port. I would have been happy with a return to the same treatment we got with BO2, but it seems like Treyarch and PC Dev are going even beyond that this time.

    Server browser and mod support would be next on my wishlist, but those are longshots and I’m already more than happy with what they’re doing for PC BO3. PC COD is the best COD!!

  • Diego Diniz

    I cant take this hype, hype, hype, trailers, reviews, weapons teasers and bla bla bla anymore! When the game comes out is NOT what we expected. After MW2, EVERY CALL OF DUTY WAS SHIT! But I will buy BO3, because “its Call of Duty Guys”…

  • Diesel

    Now if only Activision was more open to Steam sales along with modding support being available, I’d maybe sell away my PS4 and get this game on PC.

    Kudos to 3arc for giving PC some attention.

  • Poplur33

    Does anyone know if digital version of a game is worse? Is it worse performance or laggier? On 360 I usually would download the game and put the disk in and it would run slightly smoother.

  • Not bad, not bad Treyarch.. This is first good info about the game, you should keep it up 🙂

  • robin.lund9711

    bo2 was pretty good on pc so i think that bo3 will be good too

  • TheTru Cypher

    Just put all this on console where the majority of the fan base is!

  • Underdog BO1 FTW!

    Please tell me not Server browser! I hate finding server that have no rules, no same map rotation and shit.

  • Hamza

    Hey not for me gay bitch

  • Nadt Boonmee

    all CODs before this told us the same thing remember ? what we should do is wait till we can see it with our eyes.

    WHAT ARE YOU DOING ? Pull your finger back from that pre-order button !!!
