It feels that the most recent Call of Duty games have been lacking on PC of late, distributing the love that should be going in to the PC platform amongst the consoles instead. It’s probably one of the reasons that the older Call of Duty games have higher player numbers than newer ones. It seems like Treyarch is trying to fix that. They want the PC version of the game to be a serious contender in the world of eSports, and just be a great experience for PC gamers – filled with the sort of customisation options PC gamers expect.

They’re even putting in Split-screen support, which you can apparently use across two monitors if you have the requisite hardware – split vertically or horizontally. On top of that, the game will get 4K support, an FOV slider and all of the shiny graphics options that PC gamers want and need (because they spend more time playing with settings than playing games). Here’s what Treyarch promises to implement.

  • 100% Ranked Dedicated Servers
  • 2-Player Split Screen
  • Seamless Game Controller Support
  • Strong GPU scaling, SLI and Crossfire Optimizations, and 4K monitor support make the game look and run great at full 4K resolution
  • FOV Slider
  • Framerate Cap Slider
  • Improved Text Chat features available in-game and also now in lobbies.
  • Fantastic Steam Trading Cards – collect them all!
  • Treyarch Anti-Cheat (TAC)

On top of that, Treyarch has released a projected minimum spec for the game. Does your PC meet the specifications?

  • Operating System: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 64-Bit
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-530 @ 2.93 GHz / AMD Phenom™ II X4 810 @ 2.60 GHz
  • Memory: 6 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 470 @ 1GB / ATI® Radeon™ HD 6970 @ 1GB
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

The chipper chaps at Treyarch say that they’ll soon have the recommended spec to share with you.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
