Call of Duty: Black Ops - now coming with 3D zombies, campaign, multiplayer

Good news for early adopters of 3D TVs (and PC owners with rigs that support 3D) - Call of Duty: Black Ops will be released with an option to play in 3D. That's every mode in the game. Campaign, multiplayer, Zombies... the lot. Playable in 3D.

The PS3, Xbox 360 and PC versions will feature an option to toggle 3D on/off in the main menu. Once 3D is activated, gamers with the necessary kit will simply need to don their active shutter glasses, sit back and feel smug as they experience the Cold War action in stereoscopic 3D.

If you weren't hot for 3D gaming already, does this Black Ops announcement do anything to persuade your mind that you need to get a 3D-ready TV or PC? Share with us in the comments.

    @CoryRX8 the 360's 3D wont be as capable of the higher end resolutions due to having to render 2 screens of each... i mean even reach had some disturbing frame rate drops as it was.... meanwhile the ps3 will likly only be in 720p for 3D... unless its the cheap 3D you will most likely see frame rate drops.

    @Kieran712 No kidding. Microsoft's marketing seems to be asleep at the wheel on that front. I realize they're concentrating on the Kinect launch, but really, how about at least a mention of a major capability that people don't actually know that the console has?

    wow, this wasn't on my list till it jumped on the glorious 3d bandwagon!

    @CoryRX8 I did not know that. It really shows how little a deal they've made of it because I haven heard ANYTHING about it lol.

    Will it still run at 60fps in 3d? That would be impressive.

    @Kieran712 The Xbox 360 has supported 3D since 2009. There were only two 3D games released on the 360 in 2009, Avatar and Invincible Tiger, but it had 3D support a full six months before the PS3 did. How Microsoft's marketing department completely missed this fact just baffles me, but they've let Sony hog all of the 3D glory for some reason. The main difference is that the Xbox has to pack its framebuffer in a weird horizontal manner that is probably a bit tricky to code, which I assume is why Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and Tron: Evolution only support 3D on PS3. For the record, Crysis 2 is going to support 3D on the 360 as well.

    Erm... how do you play 3D on Xbox?

    9i guess its a step in un-popular (yet new) technologies.. I won't be owning a 3D TV for atleast 10 years.. I'd say only about maybe 10% of the Black Ops players will own a 3D tv to use it in the game.. And that's speaking very optimistic..

    You can already play almost any game on the pc in 3d if you have a newer Nvidia card. And I do.
  • Babzors - October 5, 2010 3:37 p.m.

    oh.. and no. as big as this game may be... no 3D tech for me
  • Sleepingdragon - October 5, 2010 3:33 p.m.

    NoOoO, Its the cold war! I demand that zombies arise due to being nuked!!!
  • Babzors - October 5, 2010 3:31 p.m.
