Black Ops 2 to Support 3D Gameplay
Activision today revealed that Call of Duty: Black Ops II will support 3D gameplay, usable in single player, multiplayer and even Zombie game modes.
The publisher is teaming up with LG to promote the game’s 3D capabilities via various marketing efforts, including a discount from LG when purchasing both the game and one of LG’s Cinema 3D TVs. The promotion will run from Nov. 13 to Nov. 21 at over 25 national retailers, while fans can check out an exclusive 3D trailer of the game at select Best Buy stores.
“As game developers and storytellers, we want to take advantage of every opportunity to immerse players in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II experience and LG’s 3D technology helps to do just that,” said Mark Lamia, studio head of developer Treyarch. “We are thrilled to team up with LG, which shares this same passion to bring gamers to the edge of their seats with realistic visuals and heart-pounding gameplay. And with LG Dual Play, for the first time ever, two players can each have their own full-screen experience while playing Multiplayer or Zombies split-screen.
Gamers who use one of LG’s Cinema 3D TVs will also be able to take advantage of the company’s “Dual Play” feature, which allows gamers to see two separate, full screen 2D images at the same time.
Having tested this feature out before, I can acknowledge that it does work pretty damn good. Qualifying LG CINEMA 3D TVs are the following series: LM9600, LM8600, LM7600, LM7200, LM6700, LM6200 and G2.
Black Ops 2 will release on Nov. 13 for PC, Xbox 360 and the PS3, while the Wii U version arrives on Nov. 18.
