Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 FOV Capped at 80

Treyarch tweets that the field of view in the PC edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (expected next week) is capped at 80, saying: "And don't ask me to raise the FOV cap. Max is 80. Thankyouverymuch. <3, -pcdev-." Another tweet confirms the presence of the lean command, and the absence of console access: "Console = no. Lean = yes." Thanks Joao.

Oddly enough, the people I see on my Steam list that play this game also... own it on console. What's that about?

Isn't this the one where they want something like $140 before DLC to get everything? Ugh, stop buying these fellas, it pains me to see you playing them on Steam

I also believe someone else (much much younger) took over the pcdev account because he wasn't this much of a douchbag back when Black Ops1 was about to come out.
I guess it makes sense since their games (CoD in general)aims for the teenager age group anyways.

@Thotaz You have to choose what to QQ about. Input lag, server lag, tearing, or FPS, or you can make some reasonable concessions and +


Wow. Quality spokesperson they have there.



Here's what's weird, this guy used to actually be friendly. He now turned into a major douchenozzle though so I'll blame it on the full moon and on his ego being inflated like a clown balloon.


That, or someone else took over his account.

Look, I'm sure it's gets frustrating getting hammered for stuff all the time, and people bitching at you. I understand that. But in a case like this, I think it's better not to reply at all, than to fan the flames and piss people off further. He could have easily said "FOV is 80. Sorry." or "We try to spend as much time as we can with the PC version, but we can't always please everyone." and left it at that.



When you see pcdev's comments like "Come up here and say that to my team's face." you can clearly see the maturity level here... this is bad on the Derek Smart level. Activision seems to be sinking lower than EA.

I wonder if Treyarch attended EA's classes on "How to become Idiot Cocksucker Douchbags and Tell Your Customers To Fuck Off While Stealing Their Money."

Looks that way to me, anyhow. Due to this news, I have changed my mind about Black Ops 2 and will NOT be buying it. Fuck you, Treyarch. Euro Truck Simulator 2 probably has more entertainment value anyway.

I don't think it's QQing when those things stop a game from selling or being fun. God forbid the reviewers down rate the game and affect the Meta score(and thus his bonus). They learned a LONG time ago when they made the first FPS games what's expected... too bad they forgot most of it.

I'm pretty sure the entire engines was rewritten for BO. I remember reading about how they had to make their own because the other COD studios wouldn't share. Yet they were expected to keep the same "look/style".

Or maybe they just wanted a cap to make sure the game was a even playing field (minus the cheaters/hackers)?

Then again I don't understand all the bitching over the FOV. Everyone on this forum wasn't going to be playing 'the same re-hashed game in a new setting' that they played last year.

you actually played that trash?

MW 1 and 2, and Black Op's (never did finish BO), and have no desire for the rest of the games, but my point was all the bitching and moaning that CoD was becoming the Madden of FPS'ers and the vast majority of people on these forums wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole, only to post even more bitching that they wouldn't play it now because of the locked FOV.

People just bitching and moaning because there is something 'new' to bitch and moan about. It's like a dger fan club.

People reading bluesnews are probably not the target group for the yearly re-stagnation of whack-a-mole-with-guns that is Call of Duty.

But why pass up to rant on how the FOV on so many games is utter shite? Also Multi-monitor users are gonna love BlOps2

What are the chances that pcdev is reading this comments thread right now and seeing what all of you are saying? What are the chances that he'd give a shit anyways?

I like he says they can't change the FOV because of "tech limitations".

Their engine is based off the fucking Quake 3 engine.

The guy indeed comes across like an arrogant ass but CoD's focus is competitive multiplayer. It's the old "competitive edge" thing. I personally don't buy that me having a field of view that is higher than yours is going to give me any discernible edge - the game moves so fast that the difference is negligible. You'll kill me because I suck regardless of the fact that I can see a tiny bit more of the field than you on the edges.

Call of Duty and the word competitive in the same sentence???
Catching Fish in a barrel is a Olympic sport by now I guess...


MULTI-player - as in "Multi" meaning "more than one person".
Competitive - as in "said multiple competing against one another to see who kills who".

It obviously isn't even close to the deepest, most skill-based, or most elegant competitive multiplayer game, but obviously that what it is, even if it sucks compared to better ones.

And FWIW, we don't know what '80' means here... Not all games use the same measurement. I believe Bad Company 2, and also BF3, hinge upon VERTICAL field of view, which is much smaller than the horizontal (obv.), but scales with the aspect ratio to also determine how wide the view is. In that case, 65-70 would be enough for most people, giving you 90-95 horizontal degrees for 16:10 or around 100 for 16:9.

If this is vertical FOV, and you crank it up to 80, that would give you 105-110 horizontal depending on the aspect ratio, which leaves no room for complaints. Personally I lean more toward the 90-95 range, because after that you start to get the fish-eye effect. Don't mean to interrupt the COD bashing, just giving y'all something to think about...
