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.

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.

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???

Why would any PC gamer buy a game from such a fucking smug asshole?

most likely pcdev fought go get a fov upto 80 from 60. why the fuss, sure i think an fov of 80 sucks, but EVERY other call of duty has locked the FOV at 80, yup even CoD4.

Don't get me wrong, I freaking hate that FOV cap. But that's not my issue here.

My issue is the effort he puts in coming over as an arrogant piece of shit who somehow thinks he's holier than.

Fuck him and his piece of shit games.

It was starting to look better for awhile there with the game requiring DX10/11, then this "lol nope" answer hits. C'est la vie.

There is your current state of customer service these days.

Why not just make a blanket statement of "Don't ask us for anything in addition to what you get out of the box". Why limit it to just FOV?
