Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for PC Offers Lean and Adjustable FOV
Treyarch says that the PC version of Black Ops 2 will offer two highly requested features unique to the platform.
Treyarch's PC developer Twitter account (that's @pcdev) has confirmed that the PC version of the company's upcoming game, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, will offer two features highly requested by the PC gaming community.
First up among them is the ability to lean. Unlike the console versions of the game, which only allow the player to move in the cardinal directions, players are able to lean and take a peak from behind walls without fully exposing their bodies in the PC version of Black Ops 2. However, in spite of its implementation, it's difficult to say if it'll have any impact whatsoever on the gameplay, as Call of Duty games are hardly cover-based shooters.
The second highly requested feature to make the cut is adjustable FOV, which will allow players on various display resolutions to tweak their field of view so playing Black Ops 2 on the PC won't feel like a cramped experience. Many multiplatform shooters running on the PC have limited FOV settings due to console-based limitations and feel very cramped as a result. Black Ops 2 will not be one of those games.
With these two additions, it appears that Treyarch is staying true to the claim it made back in 2010 that it was, and remains a PC developer.
