Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops will feature support for stereoscopic 3D. The Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC versions will include the 3D mode when the game launches on November 9th. People wishing to use this feature will need a 3D-ready TV for consoles and for PC a Nvidia 3D Vision-ready PC using active shutter 3D glasses. The Nintendo Wii, DS and iPhone versions will not support 3D.
Call of Duty: Black Ops’ 3D setting is presented as a menu option that players can choose to enable or disable at any time whether they’re in the single-playing campaign, multiplayer matches, or the Zombie mode.
Players will be able to see the 3D effects while aiming with their weapons’ sights and with other activities such as rappelling and when using vehicles.
“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,” says Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia.
