Treyarch’s Director of Development, PCdev, today posted an update on Treyarch’s blog about improvements they have made to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on PC following feedback from the beta in August.

Here’s just a small overview of some of the changes they have made to the PC version since beta:

  • Some players felt that the game didn’t perform well on their computer. The good news is that the PC Beta didn’t include final performance optimizations. This work is being completed as we speak. We’re improving performance and working with hardware partners to prepare optimized drivers for launch.
  • Other players described the mouse as “floaty” or “laggy.” We agree – player feedback helped us find the problem and we fixed it.
  • Some players with certain networking configurations had trouble connecting to online services. Thanks to your reports we were able to fix this compatibility issue.
  • During the Beta, some players provided feedback that they were experiencing various crashes, freezes, or other bugs. We’ve been dissecting each one and as a result have been able to fix a lot of bugs including many crash and freeze issues.

If you missed it yesterday, Treyarch detailed changes that they’re making to the MP as whole following beta feedback.

    To much news to handle 😮 I can’t even keep up, trying to play Nathan drake collection … Did we see gameplay of the new map or was it just a trailer ? Or was it just screen shots ?

    • Mario Rivera

      I saw about 30 secs of gameplay on neroscinema’s yt channel

      • Kobrah

        Drift0r also showed a bit

      • ScOott

        Thanks.

  • As a PC player I am very happy to see this. The game already ran really well on my machine so this just means it’s be even better!

  • drjakeyoung

    You know there’s something wrong when over half the comments are people claiming to be “first” or “furst”!

    • jordanxbrookes

      1st?

        Yeah I know I’m not gonna get an upvote for this comment… lol

        • LovekillerX

          You just did.

        • Guywithbrains

          +1 for you.

        • One Russian’s Revenge

          “You may be better than ‘furst’, but I’m the first… At winning.”

            Oooohhhh!

      • ItzSikh

        *Furst (jk)

      • Woah, stop innovating. You’re going too far.

    • ScOott

      Everybody is just to fursty .. God my jokes get better .. And when I say better I mean worse ..

      • ccrows

        “fursty” Wait, What Seriously? WTF Scottie? lol

        *sigh* I literally thought you OG meant “Frosty” and it actually took me 10 seconds to figure out WTF you did there.

        Sure I’m drunk ATM, but still FFS bruh… 😉

        • ScOott

          lol! Ur defiently not fursty then 😮

  • jordanxbrookes

    I’ll be really impressed if Treyarch manage to change the opinions of guys like LevelCap and Matimi0. Glad that the PC community(what’s left of it) isn’t being pushed to the side 🙂

    • Rorke File

      I Hope they listen.

  • Well good to know that the PC performance will be better

  • pulseimpact

    fursted

  • Freeze

    The game also felt clunky, bo2 was amazing, why cant the replicate that feeling

  • DEMOLITION12

    pc is shit

    • Woah there buddy you are exceeding the butthurt-limit

      • DEMOLITION12

        you’re the one who plays on the inferior version then cries all day about how bad it is

        • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

          Correction : PC isn t shit , the PC CoD ports are shit.

          • RdJokr

            Go play Black Ops II and see if you can say that again.

  • Digital_Veil_

    Glad they fixed the mouse movement, it definitely felt off to me. “Floaty” is a good way to describe it, definitely not raw 1:1 input-output. As far as stutters and performance I assumed they would sort that out by launch, and drivers will help too

    BO2 just felt so crispy on PC, hope for the same with BO3

  • Aidan

    Off topic, But I swear to fucking god that Michael Condrey nerfed SD’s so people would buy more ASD’s. Literally for the past month, all I have been getting from my supply drops is Enlisted crap. Like, No bullshit, I literally have just been earning Enlisted Gear.

    • Kobrah

      I haven’t even been getting weapons! And almost always only two items and usually one of them is an enlisted reinforcement :/ fucking bullshit

      • Aidan

        I bet you any amount of money they are doing this on purpose.
        .

    • RdJokr

      I got an Elite AK47 yesterday so… Don’t really know what to say about that.

      • Aidan

        Dude, I’d be happy if I got a Professional.

        • ItzSikh

          its all based on luck

          • RdJokr

            That’s what I keep telling people. But nooooo, it’s all “it’s a scam, you have to buy ASDs to get these new guns”.

            Meanwhile I’m just sitting here opening regular drops and feeling blessed every time I see a new gun. Now all I need is the CEL-3 to make this last month of AW enjoyable.

          • ItzSikh

            Its just filthy casual that rage

          • Aidan

            How come out of the thousands of different items that I can earn, I only seem to get fucking enlisted marine knee guards? I seriously wasn’t exaggerating when I said that all I have earned for the past month was Enlisted. I haven’t even seen a professional piece pop up in over a month. ONE MONTH. For one month I have had to open 40 different supply drops, only to find the same damn KVA Paramilitary Shirt and the same useless care package. You think that’s luck? I earn the same damn crap,every time… and literally, I opened a SD, and i got Marine Kneepads and a Care package. One hour later I GOT THE SAME DAMN COMBO, IN A DIFFERENT SUPPLY DROP.

            God, I’m going off on a tangent. This shit is Rigged.
            There is no way that earning the same 2 things in 2 different SDs in the same damn hour can be considered “Luck”.

            Man, Screw this game.

          • Aidan

            Need I say more?

          • SoulTaker

            It’s all luck sadly dude I see some people getting good shit but I keep getting marine loadout shit.

          • Kobrah

            YES! The top one is like I keep getting!!

          • RdJokr

            It’s just pure luck, dude. If they’re going to rig a system like this, everybody would be affected. It’s way too time-consuming to pick and choose people to troll with stuffs like this.

            FWIW, I never got a single SAC3 variant (I do get some akimbo ones, but the single ones have somehow evaded me to this day). Not to mention some of the cool ASD gear sets that I really would like to have.

          • Aidan

            Bull. Dude i guarantee you, Condrey did something dude

          • ItzSikh

            Nope definite luck based I even got shit stuff from regular sd’s since 2 months after release.

          • Aidan

            Read what I said below

          • ItzSikh

            It’s still luck man just face it

          • Aidan

            I don’t want to believe that it is 🙁

          • ItzSikh

            if it was nerfed there will be news about it and/or SHG will give us Patch notes.

          • Aidan

            You never know…

          • RdJokr

            LOL, you think SHG writes everything down in their patch notes? Throughout AW’s season, we’ve seen a bunch of ninja fixes everywhere.

          • ItzSikh

            well you know the pc hackers when they see something different in a game they immediately go on the game files.

      • ToonToons22

        I just got the AK-47 Slayer and the 1911 Single Stack today. Maybe some people are just lucky when it comes to Supply Drops.

  • RdJokr

    See this IW and SHG? THIS is how you handle a PC version. Had absolutely zero regrets preordering this game on PC.

    • LovekillerX

      IW and SHG both are keeping their Call of Duty games updated on consoles but they really should step up and take care of PC version aswell.

    • ItzSikh

      don’t worry they will learn their lesson next year

      • RdJokr

        Unless I get a beta to test things out, and IW actually communicates with us, I wouldn’t count on it.

        • ItzSikh

          fair enough

    • SoulTaker

      Honestly it makes me happy that the platform I game on is getting attention when it comes to COD. With the way SHG and IW handled their CODs I doubt any PC player would even want to get their game considered how they trated us Treyarch has been nothing but good to us.

    • FuzzzyHD

      Shut the fuck up, with your constant shit post that everyone says all the time.

      • FuzzzyHD

        Also I can guarantee once there is a problem with the PC version you will bitch about it here.

      • RdJokr

        Wow. Ok. Butthurt much?

  • Guywithbrains

    Keep up the good work Treyarch!

    Because of this I think there should be beta for every new Call of Duty.

    Another note: someone made a good point on Reddit. Each specialist’s background seems to be a map. Nomad’s background is Redwood.

    • DeadZombieGaming 12

      I wonder what is Outrider’s map then?

      • Guywithbrains

        Well that made me think that probably all backgrounds aren’t maps but some of them are such as Battery and Nomad.

        • DeadZombieGaming 12

          Yeah, but i’m just wondering… If it could be a map, then what would it be? Looks like something out of Star Wars!

      • cj03kito

        stronghold

  • DeadZombieGaming 12

    I kinda wanna buy it for PC now… So i can run it atleast 60fps on low, cause my laptop isn’t da best

  • DeadZombieGaming 12

    Glad that they fixed some stuff! It was impossible to aim in the beta

  • BHCMax

    Why No clan run ranked/unranked servers?

  • Ryumoau

    I don’t play on pc but its nice to see Treyarch is working to improve all platforms for the game. 🙂

    Doesn’t mean it’s not a hindering practice. I have never pre-ordered. Ever. No one can excuse it without looking asinine.

    BradyAlucard[sillibk] Frank Rizzo a month ago
    Does that Activision dick taste good? Yeah, fuck consumers that are tired of a corporation’s bullshit. Save the excuses for your 6th grade teacher.

    BradyAlucard[sillibk] Frank Rizzo a month ago
    Yes, because simply listing other reasons for not liking a corporation (especially since it has gone on for nearly 15 yeaes) is SO asinine, yet excusing and damage controlling a company who has shit on the industry is intelligent and logic-fueled. K.
    I don’t pre-order, so your idiotic insult is invalid
    let’s excuse the practice of pre-orders just because we can cancel them! Doesn’t excuse anything, actually, you’re still supporting a bullshit practice.
    No, but you seem to be in bed with Activision. Maybe you should pre-order some Vaseline?

    BradyAlucard[sillibk] MichiganerE a month ago
    Nah, because of the “this is a CoD website” bullshit excuse. What does everyone expect me to do? Praise all Call of Duty games? It’s not even my favorite franchise, in fact, it is WAY down my list. It’s not even in the top 100.

    BradyAlucard[sillibk] Jenish Katuwal a month ago
    Don’t tell me what to do. I know for a fact that I make better points than you.

    dick*. You don’t know what a fanboy is

    “Fan of Microsoft” lol why? I’m no SCE fan, I’m a PlayStation fan. Fuck the companies that manufacture consoles, they don’t care about us

    • Xerolh

      I love you

  • sandro

    my opinion is that the mother ship is weak, or atleast doesnt deserve 100% to be the top scorestreak. The turrets are fine but the missel hit/explotion radius is not stong enough and also i know scorestreak custamisation is not your thing but you should make it optional to let someone into YOUR mother ship to steal your kills, or at least when the missels are not strong so that you can get the kills fater(is like competion between teamates). Also the rolling thunder needs a buff,make it come to the map faster or have a bigger explotion radius

  • Guywithbrains

    When watching Black Ops 3 Friday live stream I knew there was something going on in that box which had name of the interviewed person. And in that box there was hidden messages related to campaign.

    “special operations 529 1985 access denied”
    “agents spread across the globe locations unknown”
    “searching for all targets for several months”
    “suspects are located in various locations top secret illegal experiments conducted on civilians and volunteers and held non volunteers against their will”
    “chemical agents were created in lab 90-3 nova and used unwilling suspects”
    “to observe their reactions and how they were affected”
    “side effects including hallucinations, unconsciousness, vomiting and in many cases DEATH”
    “lab gear must be worn at all times when coming in contact with nova gas”
    “this document must be destroyed after being read”
    “knowledge of these experiments must be protected at all times”
    “any knowledge discovered will be immediately and strongly denied by all parties involved with the experiment do not inquire any further END LOG”

    A couple of things stood out at least to me. First of all I think those “special operations” are from 1985 so maybe after all we go back in time to WW2 and 80’s. Second and last one is that seems like nova 6 will be a big part of this campaign.

    Thanks to Biblicalreaper’s video!

    • LovekillerX

      Wow Treyarch really seems to know how to hide things and how to generally mess up with our heads. It would be cool to go back in time but I hope that history and present day/future will be connected together so that the actual story would make sense (if going back in time is the case).

    • DeadZombieGaming 12

      So Nova 6 will have a part in the campaign?

  • FazalGaming
  • J4MES

    Keep up the good work Treyarch! They did a fantastic job with BO2 on PC and their support on Steam is excellent. Sledgehammer on the other hand were ignorant morons who only cared about counting the few pennies they made as opposed to dealing with critical issues with the PC version. They are still Game Banning people from the original Black Ops whilst SHG still haven’t acknowledged issues from last year that still plague their game.
