Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 Supports YouTube Streaming On Consoles
The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will allow players to live stream their multiplayer gameplay to YouTube. Treyarch hopes that this new feature will make Black Ops 2 into a popular eSport.
Any player with a Call of Duty Elite registration and verified YouTube account will be able to livestream their League Play matches. This feature will also support the webcam and audio commentary streaming. The live streams will be viewable on YouTube through web browsers or mobile devices. The footage is accessible through Elite as well. Viewers on Elite will be able to check out the stats and loadouts of whatever player they're watching.
Streaming will not be a premium Call of Duty Elite feature. In fact, there is no premium Elite for Black Ops 2 altogether. Activision decided to make the service free to all players.
There's no mention of the Wii U or PC versions in today's announcement. There's not much need for the feature on PC because of existing services like Xfire. Presumably the Wii U will miss out on live streaming altogether.
Black Ops 2 will launch worldwide on November 13th on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The Wii U version will arrive on the 18th.
