Geek confession time….I haven’t been much of a fan of the Call of Duty series for quite some time now. I’ve always felt the features have been more evolutionary than revolutionary since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but today Treyarch announced a new feature that has me absolutely stunned. Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be the first game to come with a pre-installed live streaming feature for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This feature will allow players to stream their games, webcam feed, and audio commentary directly to YouTube without the need for a high end PC or external video capture device. Players who subscribe to Call of Duty Elite will have access to an even wider array of features with the ability to view player cards, class loadouts, and career statistics.
To get started all a player needs is a verified YouTube account. Players’ live streams will be viewable on the internet through YouTube and Call of Duty Elite as well as on smartphones and tablets through Call of Duty Elite.
Mark Lamia, studio head of Treyarch, had the following to say: “With our competitive play and eSports initiatives, we wanted to deliver live streaming capabilities built right into Call of Duty: Black Ops II, because Call of Duty is not only fun and exciting to play, but we believe it will be just as exciting to watch. By making the capability of live streaming as accessible as possible to our fans, straight from a player’s console without the need for any additional hardware or sophisticated setups, we are empowering our fans to share their multiplayer experiences.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 launches on November 13, 2012 for PC, PlaySation 3, and Xbox 360. For more information be sure to visit the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 website at www.callofduty.com/blackops2.
