Call of Duty: Black Ops will also be playable in stereoscopic 3D when the game launches worldwide on 9 November, Activision has confirmed.

The latest game in the Call of Duty series will be playable in both 3D and non-3D on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC as long as gamers have 3D-ready televisions or monitors.

“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.   

“We made sure the experience is seamless for gamers to use with a simple menu option to enable stereoscopic 3D or disable it at any time whether playing in the single player campaign, multiplayer or Zombies”, added Lamia.

Call of Duty: Black Ops for Windows PC is Nvidia 3D Vision-Ready and supports stereoscopic 3D gaming using 3D Vision active-shutter glasses and Nvidia GeForce GPUs. 

Gamers will be able to go three-dimensional from 9 November.
