Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops will include a stereoscopic 3D option when it ships to retailers on November 9. According to the publisher, the game will be playable in 3D on the PS3 and Xbox 360 with 3D-ready HDTVs utilizing state-of-the-art active shutter 3D glasses. The PC version will also include a 3D mode, which is being touted as NVIDIA 3D Vision-Ready (only the 12th game to earn that label).
"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. Aiming down the sights of your weapons, flying in helicopters, rappelling down mountains, and moving through highly detailed environments are just some of the awesome experiences you will have in 3D with Black Ops," says Mark Lamia, Studio Head of Treyarch.
If you can't afford a 3D TV, Best Buy will Black Ops set up in 3D at many of their stores:
"Call of Duty: Black Ops is already the most anticipated entertainment launch of the year, and the addition of a fully playable 3D version will truly take gaming to the next level," said Chris Homeister, senior vice president and general manager of the home entertainment group at Best Buy. "Through our footprint of nearly 1100 retail locations across the country and online, as well as our wide selection of 3D-enabled products, Best Buy is uniquely positioned to bring this exciting experience to life for consumers. We're thrilled to partner with Activision to support this great new chapter in home entertainment."
