As part of Call of Duty: Black Ops II‘s standard multiplayer features, gamers will be able to use a built-in option called CODcasting—allowing you to livestream your gameplay to others on the internet.

Though I am not a huge Call of Duty person, this is a very exciting option for me. So, here’s how it works: For those playing the PC or console versions of Black Ops II, with just the push of a button you can turn your game into a livestream for others to watch. You’ll be able to control options such as showing the active map, displaying or hiding the scoreboard, show or remove HUD elements, broadcast team chat audio if you’d like, and even enable a picture-in-picture feed to show yourself playing the game by using a USB video camera.

If you’ve ever watched anybody do a livesteam of a game, or enjoyed “Let’s Play”-type videos on YouTube, this is basically Activision and Treyarch giving you the ability to do that without needing any additional equipment.

In this video, Activision’s Dan Amrich sits down with Mike “hastr0” Rufail to run through some of the various options that will make up CODcasting in Black Ops II.
