So here's the deal: If you buy Call of Duty: Black Ops II on PC you won't get console commands. No big deal right? Okay. Also, you cannot adjust the field of view either. The game is locked at 80 with no adjustments and no options to adjust it. This was firmly confirmed by Treyarch.
Blues picked up the tweets from community manager of the Santa Monica Treyarch studio, who tweeted the following unwelcoming comments...
And don't ask me to raise the FOV cap. Max is 80. Thankyouverymuch. <3, -pcdev-
Of course, despite being peeved Call of Duty fanboys were still compelled to simply ask...”Why?”
The response? Well Mr. PCDev simply stated...”of course there is a reason. otherwise I would raise it to stop all the QQing.”
So anyways, the upside is that there is no frame-limit so big-rigs can pump out speeds that suit their hardware. Still, the fact that we're moving forward in game design and technological advancements but moving backward in consumer/player control is very worrisome. Especially given that after being told you will have less options and less ways in which to play the game, many of the fanboys on Twitter still went ahead in saying that they would be pre-ordering the game. That's mind boggling.
Anyway, you can look for Call of Duty: Black Ops II to launch next week for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC and you can pick up a copy of the game and give away more control to big corporations for only $59.99.
