In news that will have several PC gamers shouting DUUUUH at me, Call of Duty is going to look pretty damn good on PC. How good you ask? Well you’re going to need to eat canned dog food in order to afford the right hardware, because COD on PC is going to top whatever visuals next-gen has in store for console gamers.
“PC is taking a different tack from previous games [in the series,]” Call of Duty Ghosts executive producer Mark Rubin said to Kotaku.
According to Rubin, because the older Infinity Ward developed COD games were built with Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 toolsets, those assets were then used for the PC version. But this year has seen the Windows device get its own set of tools, which have been used to spruce the game up.
“Now, PC has its own set of assets,” Rubin said. “It’s going to look better than any Call of Duty we’ve ever made on PC.” That’s not to say that the Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions won’t look good at all. In fact, they’ll really be a leap forward when compared to current-gen platforms. But expect PC to be the king of visuals here, as Ruben said:
They’re actually using an even higher version in many cases than the next-gen consoles, from a texture standpoint.
So there you have it. When it comes to multi-platform, you’ll be getting the highest quality tea-bagging on PC. Why, you can see individual threads in the gootch area of that soldier who just shot you!
