Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is the next big thing in the franchise and with that comes big changes. According to developer Treyarch, on Twitter, the plan is to bring dedicated servers to the PC version of the game, something that has been missing from some of the other titles.
This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, because Treyarch managed to allow for dedicated servers for the PC version of Black Ops and Black Ops 2, so it should have been clear as day that the team would do the same for the third outing.
Treyarch director of development Cesar 'pcdev' Stastny also said the game will come with an adjustable field of view, something that was a part of the first two Black Ops titles.
PC players who are interested in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 after finding out it will have dedicated servers would probably want to know of the minimum specifications to play the game.
Specs are as follows:
- Operating System: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 64-Bit
- Processor: Intel® CoreTM i3-530 @ 2.93 GHz / AMD PhenomTM II X4 810 @ 2.60 GHz
- Memory: 6 GB RAM
- Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 470 @ 1GB / ATI® RadeonTM HD 6970 @ 1GB
- DirectX: Version 11
- Network: Broadband Internet connection
- Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
From what we can tell, Black Ops 3 should run just fine on most gaming computers. Over the years, the Call of Duty franchise has been very friendly to PC gamers, as it doesn't require the players to go out and purchase expensive hardware to play.
The whole franchise might feel like a rehash every year, but at least Activision knows that Call of Duty doesn't have to warrant bleeding gaming hardware technology to be successful.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is expected to grace store shelves before the end of the year for the PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, WiiU, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
