Greetings from Gamescom!

This year we’ve got a lot going on, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it all with you.

Right now we’ve got Black Ops 3 multiplayer running on 36 rigs at the nVidia booth for anyone at the show to play – it’s an awesome display of PC gaming, and everyone at Treyarch -- especially our dedicated PC team -- couldn’t be more proud to get it into people’s hands.

Treyarch’s PC team has been hard at work developing PC specific features and optimizations for Call of Duty®: Black Ops 3 on PC. We’re focused on delivering performance for the widest range of hardware possible, while being able to scale on high-end rigs.

Keep an eye out for more PC news from the show, but for now, we wanted to share a little more about what fans can look forward to.

New features coming to the PC include: 

  • 100% Ranked Dedicated Servers
  • 2-Player Split Screen
  • Seamless Game Controller Support
  • Strong GPU scaling, SLI and Crossfire Optimizations, and 4K monitor support make the game look and run great at full 4K resolution
  • FOV Slider
  • Framerate Cap Slider
  • Improved Text Chat features available in-game and also now in lobbies.
  • Fantastic Steam Trading Cards – collect them all!
  • Treyarch Anti-Cheat (TAC)

And while it’s not uncommon for min specs to be announced shortly before a games launch, we felt we could establish a projected min spec very early on – which is what we did when we shared it at reveal in May:


Minimum Specifications on the PC:

Operating System: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 64-Bit

Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-530 @ 2.93 GHz / AMD Phenom™ II X4 810 @ 2.60 GHz

Memory: 6 GB RAM 

Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 470 @ 1GB / ATI® Radeon™ HD 6970 @ 1GB

DirectX: Version 11 

Network: Broadband Internet connection 

Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

As we add more optimizations and advanced graphics features, we’re re-evaluating our recommended spec, so stay tuned.  Rest assured that our goal is to provide the best performance across the widest range of machines possible.

Thank you for your support!

Treyarch
