Call of Duty: Black Ops will now be playable in 3D

While writing this post I find myself  realising that I’ve already written a fair amount on the whole ‘3D’ thing. But this new avenue to view our TV programs and play our games seems to be all the rage at the moment and rightly so.

Killzone 3, which is set for a February 2011 release, is already supposed to be playable in 3D come launch day, closely followed by Crysis 2 a month after. Now it looks as though Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops will also be following in like come November 9th when its released right across the console spectrum. Of course though, unless the required 3D updates fall on the other consoles as well, then PC and PS3 gamers (once they’ve got the necessary updates, 3D ready TV set or monitor and a pair of active-shutter glasses) will be the only ones to benefit from Treyarch adopting the new dimensional tech.

Treyarch’s Mark Lamia said…

“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.”

I have both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, but seeing as I don’t see myself getting a 3D ready TV for free anytime soon (if ever sniff, sniff) then I don’t really think its going to matter which console I get Black Ops for. Oh but I can dream. Either way I’m properly looking forward to Call of Duty’s next episode.
