    well hello im FURST!

  • SPAWNST4R

    Spiltscreen on a PC game with game controller support…..Hahaha, that right there is all you need to know about this fucktard of a game ! oh and 4k supported with them PC specs (a 1GB GTX470 !) proves this is just a skinned Blackops2 on the same old shitty engine.. NextGen rewritten engine my ass. the lies and bullshit cant come from Activision any faster can they.

    • Iagree

      Loads of people asked for it. So they got it.
      Not saying you have to agree with it just pointing out why its there.

    • RdJokr

      Can you be any dumber? Minimum specs does not equal 4k specs, only a computer-illiterate fucktard would say that kind of shit.

      • Let him be, he’s either a bad troll or just dumb

        • Both

          Or both.

          • jooker-jr

            its really hard to find someone like him.

      • SPAWNST4R

        ooh so you are saying if you have a better spec’d PC then it magically runs on a different and better engine? I said supported not that it equals, so yeah… try to read the whole post and keep in mind “Context” when you do… keep typing them there pointless replies kid

        • Why the fuck is the engine so important to you? The game looks good, and if is optimized well it’ll run smoothly.

          • SPAWNST4R

            looks good….. ahaha ok yeah

          • You’re one greedy bitch aren’t you. You’re probably someone who steals lemons in his free time

          • SPAWNST4R

            Ohhh so NEXT GEN on thier “BRAND NEW ENGINE” look at the massive difference!!! , or go suck more of them lemons kid.

          • Yeah may god have mercy on your soul

          • SPAWNST4R

            *and believes in the idea of a god lolol fuck off fail kid lol

          • I don’t really believe in god and I’m older than you, atleast I hope because you’re too stupid to be old

          • SPAWNST4R

            implies the idea of a god and quotes the notion of a soul, wishes for said deity to have mercy on my sole then denies the belief then states he is older than me because, well because butthurt internet argument fail….. class act you. keep it up !

          • What the fuck are you saying man, having a bad week? Did you shit yourself in public or what

          • RdJokr

            He’s probably an Xbox dude, and he’s butthurt that PS4 and PC are getting all the attention.

          • SPAWNST4R

            ahh you see, thats the sort of shit dickhead fanbois say, Im a PC gamer mostly, I have an XB1 and a PS4 and also a 360, but hey , dont let that stop you being a clown

          • Shabur Bakhtiar

            Why are you so pissed dude? If people like the game, let them be, does it really matter if it looks like shit? People like it, what to do.

          • Dude just leave you’re not posting here for any good reason. Go fuck w/ some people somewhere else.

          • Yea, it’s obviously the Black Ops 2 engine, just heavily upgraded. I really don’t understand why every time they advertise it as “a new engine.”

          • SPAWNST4R

            cant even argue its heavily upgraded, the only real difference is because the consoles hardware is doing a better job of up-scaling, Remember that the 1st image is on 13 year old hardware (that was also outdated on release). In truth CoD looks like shit. compare it to ANY next gen FPS side by side and see for yourself

          • RdJokr

            Same reason anybody ever advertises their engine as “new”. A sufficient amount of new codes have been implemented, and a majority of the old codes have been replaced, thus it is reasonable to call the engine “new”.

          • SPAWNST4R

            please, sit down and shut up idiot, “majority” only you said that, stop lying to reinforce your own bullshit by making up facts and quotes! Its would be exactly the same lie as selling my 5 year old car as Brand New because I had it resprayed a different colour

          • Xerolh

            Who pissed in your cereal?

          • SPAWNST4R

            get cancer?

          • Xerolh

            lol k. How can somebody so stupid be filled with so much rage?

          • SPAWNST4R

            because intelligence equates to emotion?

          • Xerolh

            I can’t understand half the shit you’re saying, it’s just a game bro don’t get so upset.

          • SPAWNST4R

            your lack of intelligence has no bearing on my emotional state or well being,

          • Xerolh

            Lol what? Bro I don’t think you even know what you’re saying but alright then.

          • SPAWNST4R

            read a book then, expand your mind, go to hillbilly collage, do something you dumb shit

            You’re calling others dumb but you’ve made so many mistakes maybe you should go back to high school and reconsider some bad choices you might have made like skipping English class.

          • SPAWNST4R

            1 spelling mistake, stop making up “facts” to support your own stupid shit.

          • SoulTaker

            You at least made 7 grammar mistakes dude. I can take pictures and highlight them for you. Also you should check up on that anger issue seems like you’re a ticking time bomb ready to blow. No disrespect or anything.

          • SPAWNST4R

            Lol at the grammar nazi, once you play the grammar card you lost and have no argument. stop projecting your emotional Fantasies onto others via comments, do you realise how fucking moronic you come off pretending to know someone’s. Emotional state from a web comment ??! Haha heard it all now

          • SoulTaker

            I’m only playing that game because you yourself are calling people stupid when you can’t even sound smart while doing. Hey I’m just caring about someone who might need help as it seems you have a lot of pent up aggression. Don’t worry man we’re here for you.

            Yeah, here’s me, IT and Communication manager for a large UK chemical process company, reading posts on a new gold MacBook, Typing this on my iPhone 6, getting notification emails from you bitches on my apple watch while pulling up my drive in my A6 after driving from airport after a business trip to India….. wishing I made better choices and didn’t skip English !! Hahaha

          • SoulTaker

            Somehow I doubt you’re telling the truth but who cares. Lets just move on with out lives I love you man and hope for the best for your chemical processing company! <3

          • SPAWNST4R

            No reason to lie !

          • Prostidude

            xD I’m dying

          • RdJokr

            See the dumb example you just made there? Replacing majority of old codes is more similar to replacing the components inside your car.

            So unless you can tear the game engine apart and prove to me that the majority of it isn’t rewritten, fuck off and stop acting all high and mighty. Seems like it’s something you should do anyway, since you seem to be super disappointed in this game’s graphics. Go play Crysis 3 or something if you want insane graphics.

          • SPAWNST4R

            majority of old code…. there you go making “facts” up again, Its a reskinned Bo2 running on a newer console with better upscalling abilities so my analogy of new paint on an old car stands.

            Show me 1 official example of someone saying they replaced the majority of the code from BO2 and I will gladly retract anything I have said here. (but we both know that isn’t going to happen because you are talking utter shit)

          • RdJokr

            http://www.gamesradar.com/Black-ops-3-engine-tech/

            Read it and weep, hater. Straight from Treyarch. Now are you gonna say Treyarch is lying to our asses now? And you’re the know-it-all tech whiz who’s always right?

          • SPAWNST4R

            read it, why weep ? there is nothing in that entire article to back up your claims ! you are misinterpreting the fact that it has been incrementally changed from Cod to Cod since the original Quake engine. You claiming has had the majority of its code re-written from the last CoD game, or even BO2 is quite simply the most ridiculous thing I have read so far. I hardly blame you tho, you are exactly the kind of fanboi that ATVI aimed this misinformation at, and as every other year the fanbois lap it up and believe the hype.

          • RdJokr

            The fact that you keep saying “reskinned BO2” makes me think you have no clue what you’re talking about.

            BO3 clearly has way better textures and lighting than BO2, the effects look far more advanced than BO2. So how is it a “reskinned” BO2 then?

          • SPAWNST4R

            and when you reskin a game what so you do? upgrade the textures and lighting !!! what advanced effects are you talking about? look at Ghosts on the 360 then look at it on the XB1, than go look at it on a top end PC, looks like its 3 different games but it isn’t, its just the same engine doing the same thing but the hardware is doing a better job of presenting and upscalling the graphics, Same as BO3, most of the visual fidelity is down to the XB1/PS4’s hardware, not the engine. sure there might be some engine tweaks but the majority is down to the hardware.

          • RdJokr

            You really don’t understand game development at all. You think it’s that simple to slap in new, better textures on an engine? No, it needs new codes to accommodate bigger, better assets, as well as adding in new features. That is far beyond “reskinning”. If that’s what you call “reskinning”, then every damn game in this world is a reskin of its previous iteration.

          • SPAWNST4R

            Haha nothing to add, you showed yourself up just fine all by yourself !!!! lol

          • LovekillerX

            This is where AW comes in: it made a HUGE change compared to earlier titles and AW showed us what next gen CoD should really look like (not talking about CGI).

          • satish pydikondala

            Why the fuck are you on this post if all your going to do is just say bs when you haven’t even played the game yet

          • SPAWNST4R

            sorry, forgot you have to be in 100% fanboi agreement to read and post on a page on the internet, silly me

          • satish pydikondala

            Because that makes sense never said you had to be a fanboy or not but if you gonna bitch about a game just by looking at specs without even playing the game shows that you need to shut up

          • SPAWNST4R

            The same specs that where required for the last gen cods from 2 years ago… I had games needing better specs than these 4 years ago ! Keep talking shit about things you know nothing about tho

          • satish pydikondala

            So what you still don’t know how the game is going to look like on pc until you play the beta unless you can’t be bothered to pre order due to your assumption

          • Matt

            Well you’re really in no place to state that the game looks the same as black ops 2 because you haven’t played the PC version yet. You can’t possibly make that assertion based on compressed video files and if you believe you can thinking that’s what Vonderhaar wants us to think then wait until you’re much more knowledgable about technology to start arguments.

          • SPAWNST4R

            I was comparing the hi-res screenshots released for both games, but if you checked the whole conversation and not just half assed your idiot comment you would of known that. Also never said it looks the same, it was a statement on how shit it looks for a “next gen” title.

        • RdJokr

          And you’re a bandwagon idiot for spouting the same old “same engine” bullshit.

          An engine is a collection of code that’s been updated and changed over time to accommodate advances in techniques and technology. No studio, unless criminally mismanaged, throws out all it’s old code and starts over from zero when creating a “new” engine. Things get replaced piece by piece
          as it is no longer relevant.

          In other words, Black Ops III’s engine is new. Deal with it.

          • SPAWNST4R

            lol. fuck off fanboi “hahahaha only a true computer-illiterate fucktard would say that kind of shit.

          • I hope you get banned you’re so annoying

          • Xerolh

            Are you stupid?

          • Well, not new but definitely not the same.

    • Dayum you’re felings are really hurt.

    • pulseimpact

      Ghosts on PS4 looked next gen imo. Ghosts looked like crap on PS3, 360, and Xbox One, but it’s clear they put all their effort into PS4 that one and graphically it’s probably the best COD to date. AW feels like a step back if anything, but it still had some good sound design. The sounds of Ghosts, AW, and BO3 are all next gen quality imo…they have been getting better with gunsounds and precise quality (like directional and gunfire sounding different bouncing off walls or on the other side of walls). COD also has some of the best motion capture for facial recognition. COD is closer to next gen than most other console games. Look at destiny. That is a real joke with poor quality.

      • Trizay

        Ghosts on PS4 and Xbox One looked almost exactly the same…

        • pulseimpact

          Completely inaccurate statement. You must have never seen the PS4 version. The only stuff that looked similar was the DLC because it was developed for Xbox One first. DLC for instance: Containment you could shoot churchbells on xbox one, but not ps4. PS4 version had way more anti-alliasing and clearer textures. On launch there were several youtubers who put both side by side. The game looks drastically different to me. If anything the One and 360 version are closer than the One and PS4 versions. I own the One and 360 versions and have played the PS4 version. With the core maps even the colors were different and map details were missing on the One version.

          • Trizay

            As an owner of both the PS4 version does look better. However, you have to be joking if you’re saying that the One looks more like the 360 than it does the PS4. That is possibly one of the biggest overstatements I’ve ever seen. The PS4 is indeed more powerful but these consoles are still young. We’re not gonna see a difference as dramatic as the one you’ve fictionalized for another several years.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      I knew you fucktard would be a troll when you said “PSN equivalent servers”.

      • SPAWNST4R

        Microsoft use Azure cloud servers, PSN don’t disclose what servers or datacenters they use so yeah, their “equivalent” servers ! So hard to understand !? Moron.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Yeah, but you stated it in a negative manner. There is absolutely nothing wrong with PSN, “Moron”.

          • SPAWNST4R

            Wow, fanboy much ! Read it again

    • Primey_

      Holy fuck you’re dumb.

    • NEVER GO FULL RETARD!

      • SPAWNST4R

        Getting hyped for a cod game released on PC is full retard, Retard.

  • TheGamerBeast

    am so damn excited for the Game this year on PC this year.. Yes i say the same thing every year.. but the support for the PC version this is unfuckin real

    • RdJokr

      Man, I just knew I made the right choice preordering this game. #InPCDevWeTrust

      • satish pydikondala

        No it should be InVahnWeTrust 😉

        • Drasadex

          ..

        • MyKogInYourAshe

          Tbh PCDev is doing an outstanding job with the PC port

          • Diego Diniz

            Here WE GO!!! Again and Again and Again. Same Shit as always…
            -Console Full of WIN (better support, DLC’s, Patches, Maps and Camos first…)
            -PC FAIL (Cheaters, Wallhackers and only TDM lobbies).

          • There are more lobbies than just TDM. Also TAC 3.0 + VAC = barely any cheaters.

          • RdJokr

            Don’t use your AW experience as a basis for BO3. It will be nothing like that. Treyarch has an anticheat system that actually works, and I can tell you that people will be playing all sorts of different modes, not just TDM.

          • Vinícius Souza.

            I dont know, now we have Treyarch working. Treyarch always doing a good work for the community, with the better support on PC. so..i have good feelings about BO3.

      • Mikey9835

        Hate to be a party pooper but nvidia are a small team and were responsible for the god awful arkham knight port. So hopefully that wont be the case for this game. I might not be a pc gamer but I beleive everyone should have a good experience 🙂

        • RdJokr

          The problem with Arkham Knight still boiled down to Warner Bros not allocating proper workforce to optimize the game. NVIDIA only provided them the tech.

        • lou

          They weren’t responsible for that…. Iron Galaxy or whoever that did the port was responsible for that… Just because Nvidia partners with them doesn’t mean they are doing the development for them….

      • Diego Diniz

        Where did you pre-ordered this Game for PC???
        I am Brazilian, and the game is still UNAVAILABLE on Steam here…

        • RdJokr

          I’m in Asia, so maybe things work differently in Brazil. But I’m sure there are other places you can go to and get your preorders ready.

        • Vinícius Souza.

          Centralkeys.com.br tem pré-venda digital..site de confiança, mas eles não sabem dizer nada à respeito do beta.Mas provavelmente tendo o jogo na Biblioteca será possível participar da Beta.

  • aaa187

    Glad for no server browser.

    fuck power hungry fuckboy admins

    • SPAWNST4R

      statement makes no sense !

      • aaa187

        loser server owners can’t ban me or kick me.

        makes a lot of sense.

        • jooker-jr

          unfortunately, they are the reason why games like BF3 and older titles still have a healthy community.

          • There are many badmins in the BF community too.

          • jooker-jr

            That’s why I said “unfortunately”

        • SPAWNST4R

          Have a server browser has nothing to do with admins or renting servers ! it just means you can browse to a server thats nearer to you based specifically on ping or gametype or map

      • Tsaki

        It makes perfect sense. I used to play BO1 on the PC and I hated the server browsers. Can’t tell you how many times I have been kicked from a Free-For-All match by a admin just because I have been kicking his ass.

        • Kyle Soule

          Wow thats not right.

        • jordanxbrookes

          That sometimes happens with Battlefield 3/4. You destroy the admin on the opposing team and he bans you. Idiots.

        • BHCMax

          servers and admins are a case of trial and error, what you have to consider first is

          Ping ..find a local low ping server .. job done

          gametype… find a local low ping server playing YOUR fav gametype… job done

          admin.. find a local low ping server playing your fav gametype with decent admins.. once thats done ? job done

          that above system gives YOU the consumer the choice, the present system adopted since mw2 takes all of those choices away and flings you into whatever hellhole/good place it finds…

          now tell me again server browser with admins or pot luck?

          remember if for some reason you cant find a server you like, then run your own!! job done 🙂
          cod clans were founded on admins running great servers that tailored for their needs.
          All of that has dissapeard since mw2

          • Tsaki

            Still I prefer the matchmaking system…

    • Primey_

      You can have a server browser without custom servers with power hungry admins

  • jooker-jr

    “100% Ranked Dedicated Servers”

    its official, hybrid servers in public playlist.

    also, I hope NVIDIA is actually optimizing thegame ( unlike Arkam knights )

    but still, its nice to see news about COD on PC.

    • RdJokr

      Uhh, no. Servers in Black Ops games on PC have always been 100% dedicated, no hybrid servers here.

      • jooker-jr

        Oh, but why they only said ranked?

        • RdJokr

          Ranked = public servers, as in the servers that you play in public matches to level up. Unranked = private matches/custom games.

          • jooker-jr

            Ok, thanks for explaining.

  • Haha, “100% Ranked Dedicated Servers.”

    • Prostidude

      Lmao started in 2013-never

  • LovekillerX

    People usually think dedicated servers are best option but here comes the truth: it doesn’t fix the lag and I don’t get it why people say it would make Call of Duty a heaven. Hybrid servers are fine just like this earlier.

    • pulseimpact

      The only reason it doesn’t fix the lag in Titanfall is because Skill Based Matchmaking takes priority over connection. Same with AW and other games. However, I could tell during like DLC2 – 4 of Ghosts the game was on dedicated servers because there were no more host migrations..it meant that games didn’t constantly end for good players. So dedicated servers do something useful even if they as perfect as people think.

      • Guywithbrains

        But me and many other players enjoy to ruin fun for those who don’t, for example, get legit MOABs. I always leave the game when MOAB timer is 1 second away from blowing up IF it a player didn’t get it with legit methods.

        So I think it is good to have host migrations. However, MW2 has host migrations way too often so I prefer MW3 system.

        • ScOott

          How can you not get a legit Moab ?

          • Guywithbrains

            I am talking about legit methods. For example if someone who gets MOAB camps whole game or spawn traps through a wall then I will make sure their MOAB doesn’t kill anyone.

          • ScOott

            I don’t agree with that tbh, if I haven’t been able to kill someone before they reach 30 kills, then fair play to them how ever they got it.. Edit * just read your reply to the other guy, I don’t normally play against full parties I back out if I’m going against a clan, by my self

          • Sounds like everyone that ever got a nuke in MW2. Camping did the trick.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            Lol , that s a legit MOAB. It is pretty annoying, but it s still legit. To me atleast, MOAB s aren t legit when a guy either boosts or hacks.

        • pulseimpact

          The dedicated servers never made it so you couldn’t leave the game. And the point of the game is not to troll good players sorry.

          • Guywithbrains

            “Good players”. Over 50% of games where I have been and enemy have got MOAB they either camped WHOLE GAME or spawn trapped with full party by using light machine guns or sadly famous ACR. Neither of these make player good.

            When you get MOAB without a party and by using other guns than the easiest ones then players can call themselves actually good.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            They’re not calling themselves good, they just want to get a MOAB. I don’t blame them for camping, they earned it and I didn’t, therefore they deserve to kill me.

    • Endo Flawless

      It fixes lag induced by a host, and stops team standby, easily finding IP’s to Ddos and so on. I mean you have to be kidding me to not understand why.

      • LovekillerX

        It doesn’t remove the lag compensation and overall connection problems. People think so but they are wrong. Either way Call of Duty multiplayer works just fine with or without dedicated servers.

        • Themursk

          Lag compensation is not a bad thing you tool

          • DEMOLITION12

            you must have shit internet

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          That’s not the case. It depends on the server. Battlefield 3 and 4 have absolutely no connection issues, unless another person is taking up internet bandwidth. It’s a seamless experience that genuinely improves the connection for all players. In Call of Duty, P2P/listen servers are not ideal in 2015.

        • Lag comp has to be in the game to a certain degree or hits won’t register. The what the net code is on the other hand may cause lag.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Great comment and everything, up until you said “easily finding IP’s to DDOS”. How is that a good thing?

        • I believe he meant it fixes the problem of being able to easily find IPs.

    • Primey_

      “I don’t get it why people say it would make Call of Duty a heaven.”

      Because they are A LOT better compared to P2P.

    • Any lag is only based on your side and you don’t have to rely on someone else’s internet.

  • RobinEinarsson

    Hopefully the Treyarch Anit-Cheat is good :/

  • The Flash

    still a shame PC/Xbox One players cant play it together, would keep the numbers high in the long run

    • J4MES

      Mouse and keyboard would have such a significant advantage though it would make matches unbalanced and tedious.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I always found that a misconception. I’m good with both, and notice no real skill differences in regards to the two platforms.

        • Mario Rivera

          it has nothing to do with skill, it actual science behind the fact that a thumbstick is incapable of making precise pixel by pixel adjustments that a mouse pointer can.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I find the two mediums to be identical in terms of my performance. It also really depends on the game. I can’t play Minecraft well on console. It makes me uncomfortable while playing it on 360.

      • spartanelite

        Not really

        • Primey_

          Yes really

          • spartanelite

            I mean currently I don’t see a way to prove it,but I’d still have to say no

          • Primey_

            Want to prove it? Play a FPS with a mouse and keyboard then try a controller.

            How can a keyboard which has so many more buttons and ways to configure your control be better than a controller which is limited on how many buttons it has and the placement of buttons?

            How can a mouse which has total freedom of surface, is more precise, can be configured to different speeds be better than an analog stick which is stuck to one small area and has limited movement?

        • PCMR

          Yes really

          • spartanelite

            I mean I haven’t seen and I’ve played PC and I’d have to still say no

      • The Flash

        they can make it a setting though, whether you’d like to be paired with PC players or not, i want this feature for zombies

      • shantzonpoint

        The number of PC players is so minimal compared to console you wouldn’t even notice you’re playing against somebody with a kb/m. It has to be around 1:1000 ratio.

        • barney klingenberg

          If you pay alot for a powerful PC you might as well run software that makes use of it.

      • Kobrah

        Also the different frame rates would be a problem

      • Miguel Ortiz

        Well just cause you can be pinpoint accurate with the KB/M doesn’t mean you’ll beat everyone with a controller. Some people are extremely accurate with a controller

      • BHCMax

        pc sales and player count as it is, is low, therefore after 3 months no decent games without lag can be found ( players matching from different continents), but if pc could play alongside xbone, then at least we pc players could instantly connect to a lower ping lobby ( more to choose from in matchmaking). therefore maybe pc sales and actual player bases would increase?

  • Kyle Soule

    I got your back Noahgoa.
    Coolio!!

    • Haha thanks. I woke up a bit late this morning lol. Yesterday I woke up at noon!

      • Kyle Soule

        No problem.. Yh I know. I have been waking up around that time too. Today I woke up at about 11:00.

  • J4MES

    I have so much faith in Treyarch especially the way they still support BO2 on PC by weeding out cheaters and even boosters. Their relationship with the community is fantastic and it puts the likes of Sledgehammer to shame who’s general effort and attitude towards PC gamers was of sheer ignorance and disgrace with AW.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Those full, 100% Ranked dedicated servers have me salty. I’m going to go cry about it brb

    • Vicsupreme

      What? No bashing? lol

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Yes, these full dedicated servers are making me cry salty tears of depression.

        • Vicsupreme

          Yeah it’s like a double-edged sword. The only way to play on dedicated servers is to play w SBMM

          • RdJokr

            LOL, who says we have to play with SBMM?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            SBMM is already in the game, either way. It’s just minor.

          • Vicsupreme

            LOL what do you think ranked play is?

          • RdJokr

            Ranked play =/= ranked dedicated servers.

            In Treyarch terms, ranked = normal servers you play on, where you rank up and unlock weapons, perks, scorestreaks…, while unranked = private matches/custom games, where everything is unlocked for you.

          • Vicsupreme

            Ranked play equals ranked matches made up of a SBMM algorithm that is out of your control when playing RANKED play….which also happenes to have 100% deds this year

          • RdJokr

            Did you even read anything I wrote? NO, that’s not what “ranked” here means.

  • Domagoj

    So, its says “Treyarch is teaming up with NVIDIA to optimize Black Ops 3 for PC”. And yet another bad year for AMD users ? I know that BO2 had great success on both Nvidia and Amd, but this kinda worries me.. Will BO3 be good ?! I hope so.

    • MyKogInYourAshe

      There’s this program called “Nvidia Gameworks” where they team up with developers to make the game run well on nvidia machines, the problem is that a lot of the times AMD machines will end up running the game poorly

      • Domagoj

        Ahh, as always AMD gets screwed. Anyway thank YOU for replay 🙂

        • MyKogInYourAshe

          It’s really a shame

          • Domagoj

            Yes, I know. Im running AMD R9 270X DD 2 GB, and on BO2 I had over 150~200 fps. Im going to be disappointed if this game gonna run like cra** (AW/Ghosts) on AMD Gpus.

    • RdJokr

      They’re only saying that because, well, NVIDIA is kinda making this whole “PC hands-on” possible at Gamescom.

      I don’t think BO3 is gonna use any NVIDIA-exclusive tech that will seriously cripple AMD cards, unless PhysX is involved. At the very least, expect TXAA antialiasing and HBAO+ to be included. Crossfire optimization is already promised, so I think AMD guys won’t be suffering.

      • Domagoj

        Aha, well, that sounds better 🙂

  • Ratboy

    2 player split screen? WTF

    Is someone going to use arrow keys or is it like 1 controller and 1 k+m?

    • yolarrydabomb

      You can hook 2 keyboards and mouses and they both work. I guess somehow they got it split on the game engine itself..

      • Ratboy

        Didn’t know you could do hook up 2 mouses and 2 keyboards…

        Cause you can’t…

        • jooker-jr

          … And that’s because…. I said so?

    • Primey_

      Hurrrrrrr never heard of hooking up two controls just like you do with consoles?

    • SoulTaker

      You can use controllers…it surprises me a lot of people don’t know that most PC games have controller support.
      ._.

      • Ratboy

        Did you read my post? I said controller in it…

  • OMG! I’m so hyped for the PC version, can’t wait to play it! Two player split-screen on PC just sounds sick! I just hope my graphics card comes back from repair soon, I miss my R9 270X.

    • BHCMax

      how does that work exactly? who uses the kb and mouse? player 1 or 2 and what does the other player use to control?, I can se the sense in split screen on ps4 and xbone, as they have pairs of controls, but a PC doesn’t have this? am I missing something? lol

      • I’m assuming that you either need two controllers, or one person uses keyboard and mouse while the other, a controller. However it’ll work, I’m very excited to see how it turns out!

        • lou

          if that’s the case that will be fucking awesome! My buddy from work comes over alot and he only plays on PS4 while I exclusively game on PC so that could be amazing if I could use KB/M while he uses a controller.

  • Ryumoau

    hopefully the dedicated Servers thing makes it to console versions as well. 🙂

    • PCMR

      Dream on. Consoles are pure P2P (peasant to peasant)

    • Prostidude

      Dude they have been saying this since 2013 xD.

  • SoulTaker

    Keshav don’t forget PC has two player splitscreen that can be used with two different monitors so one monitor per person!!

  • ЭЄ Vasa

    JUST GIVE US A SERVER BROWSER AND THE ABILITY TO CREATE MODS , consoles totally destroyed the cod competitive, another year off for me, glad we have cs:go

    • jooker-jr

      Ok, have fun.

  • MyKogInYourAshe

    Hey PC players! PCDev announced that BO3 is going to have a framerate cap slider that can go up to 200 !

    • Patrik

      I dont get why it needs more than 144fps when we only have 144hz monitors. Its not like cod4 or so where its used to glitchjump n such… i really dont get it.

  • Mikey9835

    *cough* batman arkham knight port *cough*

    • SoulTaker

      Activision isn’t pulling a Warner Bros and handing off the PC port to some mobile making developer with the size of 12 people though…

  • Freeze

    Well I am done my pc build, but IDK if I feel like playing on two systems tbh

  • Eddie Tupy

    YES!! 2player split scree,n now theres no reason to get the console version except to play online with real life friends.

    About the controversial gamepad vs kb/ms anyone can be good with both. Remember gamepad has autoaim!! I used to play bo2 on pc with gamepad and would still wreck most people while laying back. when i would play kb/ms i would have better aim but not be as relaxed.

    IMO they both have pros and cons but if ur worried about aim then yes for that reason alone mouse is more precise than stick aiming but im sure with things like kontrol freaks and xbox elite controller itll only be like 10% worse using a controller vs the avg person using mouse/KB.
    Keep in mind pc version you can play at 200fps 90fov and console is limited to 60fps and 65fov.

    Cant wait for each co to make their own PC Xbox could just use windows 10 ps4 would need to make an OS, Nintendo would go bankrupt from NX. Next gen, Next gen…

  • Eddie Tupy

    hopefully there will be server browser, its the reason i can still play cod4

  • Vasa

    no mod tools and unranked rentable servers –> no buy

    • jooker-jr

      I’m not a pc player but I don’t think there a lot of mods for popular FPSs like battlefield and well… Cod.

  • Wraith

    Split Screen. They’ve won.

  • BHCMax

    Question.. what do you call a Call Of Duty dev pirate? David Van Der Harr Harrr

  • Diego Diniz

    Why I bought a Console and I’m Happy playing Call of Duty on it:
    1) I dont have to spend US$ 579,00 every year on a TOP GPU.
    2) No Cheaters.
    3) Better Support.
    4) DLC’s, Maps, and Camos First.
    5) Bug Patches First.
    6) Find a lobby anytime 24/7.

    PS.: I always been a PC Gamer, but since i’ve opened my eyes… @@
    No more, “bla bla bla 359 FPS”, “bla bla bla Anti-Aliasing”, “bla bla bla 4k”…

  • Diego Diniz

    Aim Assist for those who like to play with Controllers on PC???

    200th comment FTW

  • M4XP4YN3

    I have HD 6850 with i5-2310 @ 2,9 ghz and 8 GB RAM.

    Can I run the game on minimum settings? What’s the difference between my card and 6970? I Googled 6970, but I didn’t find anything about the 1 GB version, but 2 GB version. Does it even exist?
