Now here, some facts & informations about BlackOps:

When is the release of BlackOps?

the official release date of BO is: 11/09/2010
and you can be sure, they dont change the date. Its Activision and not Blizzard or something like that.


What are the minimum requirements of Call of Duty: BlackOps?

The 11/09/2010 is pretty soon. Why i cant preorder BlackOps on Steam?

UPDATE: BlackOps got Gold - Preordering possible!


Do i need Steam for playing BlackOps?

Short: yes!
Activision confirmed, that BlackOps will be exclsive running with Steam. That means of course NOT: that you only can buy the Game on Steam.
BUT: You need Steam and a Account (or you create one, if you bought BlackOps). Mainly, its the same princip like on MW2.
BlackOps will be installed and ONLY playable via your steamclient.

Which kind of Editions will be available, of BlackOps?

Mainly there are 3 different Editions:

The Standard-Edition: It includes the Game & the game-book, delivered in a normal DVD-Case

The Hardened-Edition includes: The Game, a limited collectors medal of BLackOps, a special avatar-suite for your XBOX or PS3 character and 4 exclusive Coop-Maps (imo, this maps should be released pretty soon after the official release of BlackOps). This all will be delivered in a Steel-Book-Case.

The Prestige-Edition includes: all of the Hardened-Edition PLUS: a real remote-control vehicle. Whis thing is just fckng amazing :)
But more informations you will get here:

!LITTLE EDIT!
Which Edition is for which System available:
Standard-Edition: PC/PS3/XBOX360
Hardened-Edition: PS3/XBOX360
Prestige-Edition: PS3/XBOX360

(the standard edition will be also available for Wii & Nintendo DS(i) - but well... this kind of "standard-editions" are not the "standard" what we want ;) )

And here a review by a person, who got invited into the (VERY, VERY) closed Beta of BlackOps:


My impression of Black Ops Multiplayer

Recently I was allowed to join the closed beta for Black Ops MP on Xbox 360, and with it ending today, I’m going to share my impressions as well as a few facts possibly not known by some.

First I have to say when I saw the reveal trailer months ago I felt nothing but disappointment, thinking that this game was nothing but a Modern Warfare 2 ripoff, and I couldn’t have been more wrong. While the game does borrow many things from MW 2, it is far from a clone.

Initially the beta only featured DM and TDM; not really my preferred gametypes, but what the hell. Right off the bat the thing I noticed is the maps are huge compared to MW 2 maps. The average MW 2 map is just big enough to not be able to throw a grenade from your spawn into the enemy spawn. The 4 maps in the beta (Cracked, Launch, Radiation, Summit) are amazingly highly detailed and made for some awesome gameplay.

Cracked
“Cracked” is a heavily battle damaged city with tons of cover & hiding places. It’s one of the larger of the 4 maps, yet still maintains a perfect 60fps at all times. Great for SD (search & destroy) and DEM (demolition).

Launch
“Launch” may be the most visually stunning Call of Duty map ever made; to call it “highly detailed” doesn’t even do it justice. The entire map takes place on a huge launch pad of a rocket, which eventually takes off during the round, deafening anyone near it & shaking the screen, also killing any players under it. I played this map in TDM mostly and it’s perfect for it.

Radiation
“Radiation” is a medium sized map which also features some very impressive off-map animation; in which a large saw (much like this one) rotates into position, descends & kicks up a huge dust cloud. In the playable area of the map there are 2 large horizontal blast doors that can be opened & closed via buttons on either side by holding the Use button/key. It may seem unnecessary, but when one of your objectives is right there in DEM or DOM (domination), those controls can mean the difference between a win or a loss. The map overall is very well designed, of particular note is the interior of the factory with a moving conveyor belt that you can ride up to the second level, and amazing lighting & fx on the tanks in the main room.

Summit
“Summit” is the winter map first shown in the MP reveal trailer with the camera spike. It’s the smallest of the 4 maps but still larger than the average MW 2 map. The map features lots of high & low points and awesome blowing snow fx. Perfect DOM map.

The player customization is just as cool as it seemed. Small improvements make class editing much faster & easier. For example, in previous CoD games if you already had your primary weapon of choice set in your class but you wanted to add an attachment, you need to cycle through all the Primary Weapon choices again just to get to the Attachments section. Now when you select your Primary Weapon, all your options are already laid out for you, such as attachments, camo, playercard & clan tag. Also, when you buy a new attachment or perk, you’re given the option to “buy & equip”, saving you valuable time editing a class between rounds.

The one aspect of Black Ops I found myself focusing on every time I played was the sound. Not only are the weapons sounds perfect, but the changing reverb & tone from room to room is much more noticeable and really helps set the mood for each map. One of the coolest parts of the sound in Black Ops is how all the weapons sounds change naturally from a distance; they’re so realistic sounding it sounds like you’re hearing a real war going on in the distance.

Treyarch has taken the best parts of World at War & MW 2 and combined them, while removing some huge things that made the previous games feel like arcade shooters. The biggest feature is that kills gained from killstreaks no longer count towards your next killstreak. For example, if you get 3 kills & call in an RC car, then get 2 kills with it, you’re still at 3 kills, not 5. This ensures you won’t waste half your time trying to fight off helicopter after helicopter or 2 or 3 at a time, allowing you to focus mostly on the ground & the enemies trying to kill you. Another interesting thing worthy of mentioning is helicopters react to you aiming a launcher at them; they will actually bank and ascend to avoid your missle.

I’ve been on the fence about this game from the start for reasons I already mentioned, and though I was reluctant I did eventually find myself really enjoying MW 2 while despising some of it’s arcade gameplay, Black Ops truly feels like it’s own game that borrowed a few ideas from MW 2 & fixed them so they aren’t so easy to spam and ruin gameplay. Add to that what seems like will be the best CoD Singleplayer yet, and of course Zombies, I’m sold on this game.

Now lets hope for mod tools! :word:

Feel free to ask any questions you may have, I’ll answer if I can.

And last but not least, the hidden Site of Treyarch - which is hidden, because of... ah anyway ;)

The following site show you some picture of the Zombie-Mode, which will be included into BlackOps.

(the site needs some seconds to load - so dont cancel it or something - its a lil bit laggy)

So, if you dont understand all the pictures and lil teasers, which are shown on the above link, check the wiki site of CoD for more informations (about gknova and so on): CoD-Wiki-GKNova (http://callofduty.wikia.com/wiki/GKNOVA6)


And here are 2 trailers to the thematic: customization Features & multiplayer

(i post this trailers because the show some of the many new features of BlackOps.)

**HOT** => Latest Multiplayer-Video of BlackOps (Video of the closed Beta) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AY7afNrxE8c) (bad Quality)

**HOT** => Second Multiplayer-Video of BlackOps (Video of the closed Beta) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQ26CWyzXPc) (High Quality - 720p available)

Please check the second MP-Beta Video on 05:42 min. and take a look for the enemys movement-jump... It looks really cool - in my opinion :)


I hope this thread answer some of your questions and/or speculations.

///EDIT
Informations about Dedicated Servers and their provider

Do we play on Dedicated Servers?
Short: YES!
Finally we get the Dedi-Servers back :)
PC Gamers play on dedicated servers - console gamers still use the P2P system.

Which providers are available to rent a server for BlackOps?
Well, thats the negative point on the Dedi-Server-System of BlackOps. Treyarch & activision allow you ONLY to rent servers by the provider: gameservers.com (www.gameservers.com). Activision awarded this kind of "exclusive-license" only to this one provider. So other companys are not allowed to rent out BlackOps servers. Well... thats how the Publisher-Hierarchy works.. But anyway... we got the Dedicated-Servers back - because of Treyarch. Cheers ;)


Whats the price for the Servers at gameservers.com?
Ok, the price isnt the best - but it isnt expensive too.
Here are the official (and OF COURSE confirmed) prices:

Ranked Server: $15/Month ----- 10,87 €/Month
Unranked Server: $99 cent/Slot ----- 0,72 €/Slot

general informations about the servers:
Ranked Server: limit of 18 Players per Server
Unranked Server: limit of 24 Players per Server
For both server-offers:

- Instant PC Server Activation (on release date)
- No Setup Fees, Cancel anytime, 5-day Refund Guarantee
- Billing period does not start until servers are activated

more Informations or want to preorder? click me to visit gameservers.com (http://www.gameservers.com/blackops/)


Another details to the rented dedicated servers:

They allow you the standard commands like: kick/bann/permbann players... and all the little admin-things
BUT - and thats a big but: The servers are NOT moddable!

You can watch THIS VIDEO INTERVIEW (http://uk.ign.com/videos/2010/09/13/call-of-duty-black-ops-pc-details-interview?objectid=14349496) to get more informations about the Servers.
(the interviewed person: Cesar Stastny - Treyarch’s PC lead for Black Ops)


///EDIT2 (10/24/2010)

Where to get retails-versions of BlackOps which are uncut?

Well, i cant post some shops here, because im not here to do some advertisement... But you should use the option, to preorder your retails-version in any austria-gamestores. They have online store, which offer Austria Versions of BlackOps (PEGI-18) and completely UK-uncut versions.

Austria-PEGI Versions are NOT completely uncut. The "swastika"-signs are still cencored. But gore and violence are completely uncut. Also the versions of austria are completely german synchronised.

The UK-Uncut versions are 100% uncut. All "swastika"-signs are not cencored. Also 100% of gore & blood.


CONFIRMED: US & UK VERSIONS CANT BE ACTIVATED IN GERMANY!


Info by Strom (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/member.php?u=739616): AT-PEGI Version of BO can't be activated in Germany!

///EDIT3 (10/25/2010)


Killstreaks!

Here are the official-confirmed killstreak-rewards of BlackOps:

3 Kills – Spy Plane: Shows enemies on the mini-map. Can be shot down
3 Kills – RC-XD Explosive RC Car
4 Kills – Counter Spy Plane
4 Kills – SAM Turret: Airdrop a placeable SAM turret that destroys aircraft
5 Kills – Care Package
5 Kills – Napalm Strike
6 Kills – Sentry Gun
6 Kills – Mortar Team: Target 2 locations to bombard with Mortar Strikes
7 Kills – Attack Helicopter
7 Kills – Valkyrie Rockets: Launcher with remote controlled rockets
8 Kills – Blackbird: Shows enemy position and direction on the mini-map. Cannot be shot down
8 Kills – Rolling Thunder: Carpet bombing airstrike
9 Kills – Chopper Gunner: Be the gunner of an attack helicopter
11 Kills – Attack Dogs: Attack dogs that hunt the enemy down
11 Kills – Gunship: Pilot an attack helicopter


VAC and Steam-Cloud. And (SPOILER ALERT) the possible Achievements?

Ok, so:
- VAC? YES! VAC (by Valve of course) is the official Anti-Cheat Tool which will support BlackOps and their Servers.

- Steam Cloud Support? Of course! Black Ops use VALVEs Steam Cloud-System to let you use your BlackOps profile (all owned Weapons, XP, Credits, whatever) from any PC which you are usin'.

- Achievements? Well, it would be sad if there are no Steam-Achievements for BlackOps. So we can be pretty sure, that we get them. And maybe - just maybe - they will be the same like on the XBOX360 or PS3 Game-Version. Oh and i talk about the Steam-Client Achievements. Not the (for example) weapon-achive.
Here's the list of the console Achievements, which we will MAYBE get too:

*SPOILER ALERT - DONT READ IF YOU WANNA GET SUPRISED ON RELEASE*

Link to the Achives (http://www.1up.com/news/call-duty-black-ops-achievements)

///EDIT4 (11/3/2010)

Preload?

To every1 who bought BlackOps on Steam:
The Preload was unlocked! You can preload the Game now!


Logially, the preload is ONLY available for ppl, which preordered the game on Steam!

///EDIT5 (10/30/2010)

Update:Cut and Uncut differences

Here's a more detailed update about the differences of the (Un-)cut version:

The german (and maybe japanese too - actually i dont know if there are the same cuts) Version isnt "complete" cuted. There are just some special scenes, which will be missing in the german (and maybe japanese) version:

Singleplayer: There shall be missing certain scenes:
- a torture-scene which includes (in the uncut version) a "glas-fragment" action (this scene will be missing COMPLETELY)
- the "slow-motion-bullet"-scene (which shows a fountain of blood, and some special fragments) is censored. The german version shows nothing of that violence.
- also the song "sympathy for the devil" will be missing completely. The scene where this song should be played, will be musicless in the german version (of course in the japanse MAYBE too)
Multiplayer: According to all official informations, the multiplayer will be COMPLETELY Uncut!

Coop:
- Missing swastika-symbols (completely - no one will be shown')
- according the latest, public informations, it shouldn't be possible to cut-off different limbs of the zombies (by explosive, aimed shots, or whatever)

Great info, this thread should be sticky. +rep
One thing I would like to comment on is the different editions of the game. I am not sure Treyarch confirmed any editions for the PC. I know the consoles are getting all the diff. editions but I am not sure the PC will have that also. So far I think the PC will be getting the basic edition for sure but the others are console only.

ugh, those system specs are wrong.

direct2drive a distributor puts up incorrect information and now its posted everywhere as "official" as though distributors don't constantly screw up technical information regarding product information not released yet.

If you believe those are the minimum specs to run a call of duty game on the PC you just need to quit gaming on the PC.

I've been using an 8600GTS for COD games for years, and they run fine at medium settings. Black Ops is even using the same version of the ID Tech 3 engine that WAW used... so you are wrong.

10-20-2010, 12:38 PM
Yeah that's true, an 8600GTS can handle easy MW2 or CoD4, if someone release promod for Black ops, the game will run better for old cards.

No need to be sorry, that is why we are here to help you correct the info, and rep is well deserved on this post. Hopefully clear up some of the forum, people keep on asking the same questions in 4-5 threads on the front page.

Would be nice to get this thread sticky so people can find all the confirmed info in here instead of creating threads about why Black Ops still not on Steam.

1. The specs mention an 8600GT which is one step below a card that runs MW2 at medium settings between 80-91fps.

2. You couldn't even back your previous post up in the first place, all you stated was, "If you believe those are the minimum specs to run a call of duty game on the PC you just need to quit gaming on the PC." Which is obviously incorrect considering that I was able to run a graphically intense game like R6Vegas with an AMD dual-core 2.4ghz, 2gb of ram, and my 8600gts without much of a problem. The engine COD uses is FAR less intense than the Unreal Engine and runs like butter in comparison.

Interesting to see you got so angry over the lack of your own supporting evidence though. Sorry, but COD games DO run on low-medium spec PC's. Just because you have a top of the line machine doesn't mean everybody else NEEDS one to play dah nue COD gamEZZZ!

any info about release the game for mac?

Umm I doubt its going to be on Mac. MW2 still isn't on Mac and its been almost a year since it came out. Who would play on a mac anyway. Its an overpriced paper weight good for only a couple things and its not gaming.

Well, thats correct. MACs isnt so commercial, to get titles like MW2 or Blackops.
MAC is still the system, which will be used for some gfx-applications mainly by agencys (for advertisings, for example).. but the MAC get his way into the private Household.. maybe, JUST MAYBE, BlackOps will be released some months later for the MAC-System.... but its unlikely...

The MAC needs some years, to get every Title - like the normals PC-system...

Well some games already in mac like tf2 cs source world of warcraft starcraft 2 etc and for me mac is far better than a pc. stable os you dont need anti virus firewalls formats etc and not even a huge tower that roars like he move out from hell very annoying. anyway if you have some news please post them.

I will add informations, if i get some... but i hear nothing about a MAC release of BlackOps... Of course it would be cool - i mean, sooner or later, i will buy a mac too... And i would be happy too.... but the economy part of MACs (in the private part - not the business) is only 10% - and well, its logical that not every title will be released for MAC. 10% is absolutely too less, to develope software/games for the MAC-system... sad but true....

of course its fine. I told another person already, that the "official min. requirements" are just a kind of guide. Its not really the "minimal requirement".

Lower Systems can run the game very fine, too - i guarantee that

Well thanks, it makes kinda sense.
I can run mw2 on max with this, but would be good idea to replace that 3 years old (or 2, don't remember) card with a new one P:

Well, its pretty simple: Treyarch/Activsion dont confirm the Gold-status of BlackOps. That means: The game is still under Developement. AN NO: Not the MAIN-developement. It just means: they fix the most bugs, which are still in the game, fix some texture-problems/-errors. Thats the last step before a Software goes Gold.

Gold-status in the thematic: software, isnt the same like in the music-industry.

Just for your notice:
Music Gold-Status: A artist sold 500,000 copys of his album/single

but the Gold-status in the software-industry means:
A software goes Gold, if it's completly finished (in regarding the developement) and also ready for the sale. Gold doesnt mean, its already in the Store - it means: its ready FOR the Store - so: the sale.


I'm glad my ignorance made it to a bullet point in your fantastic write up. I lived with 2 French people and German in college, although your English is not perfect it is still very good.

Nice write up. Enjoy some more rep. :cool:

The same minimum requirements are listed for Bad Company 2 and yet (whilst I do not meet those minimum requirements with my E6550, HD4890, 2GB RAM and Windows 7) I play that on pretty much maximum settings with no problems whatsoever.

well.. seriously, you cant compare the perfomance-balance of BC2 and BlackOps (or CoD mainly).
Because, i think the most of us know, that EA realse more than one time a battlefield-title, which was damn unbalanced. I mean: The performance of MW2 (for example) was since the release (so: version 1.0) very good - it was impressive how fine and smooth a game could be coded.

But as i installed BF:BC2 (for example) i feeled ra.ped by this (kind of) incomplete coded game. The perfomance was so unbalanced - actually i cant find another example, yet....
now i havent played BC2 for a while - maybe its more balanced - but the game isnt my favorite... especially because of all these performance-problems (@ the beginning)

but anyway... just my 2 cents in regard to Performance & BC2 :D

Not to be harsh but



The 11/09/2010 is pretty soon. Why i cant preorder BlackOps on Steam?

Well, its pretty simple: Treyarch/Activsion dont confirm the Gold-status of BlackOps. That means: The game is still under Developement. AN NO: Not the MAIN-developement. It just means: they fix the most bugs, which are still in the game, fix some texture-problems/-errors. Thats the last step before a Software goes Gold.


Thats not true There are plenty of times they've had things up long before they were ever near a completed stage.

A more likely option is that they are going for a sales record and since i believe that steam isn't counted(or any other online distribution for that matter) they are probably leaving it off to direct people to the stores until the last minute


Another details to the rented dedicated servers:

They allow you the standard commands like: kick/bann/permbann players... and all the little admin-things
BUT - and thats a big but: The servers are NOT moddable!


i believe they mentioned a couple of months back that the unranked ones would be(im sure hacks will pop up to enable it) since there is no reason to restrict the unranked ones in the same ways

So, you're saying that since MW2 (and, by inference, BlackOps) is better optimised, it should be even better, regardless of the fact that I don't meet the published minimum specification? Cool. :)

i just say, that the min. Specs are a kind of guide - if BO is so nice performance-optimized on the release, like MW2 or older titles, you havent pay attention to the released specs.
And im pretty sure, the game will be gret performance-balanced - because of treyarch.

So you can be sure, if MW2 runs fine on your PC-System, Blackops will do it too ;)

Well, pretty good speculation. May there's some truth in it. But mainly, and if i look back to older title releaess on steam (or main releases), i can tell you that it often depends by the gold-status.
Publishers like EA - which release so many titles, which are REALLY NOT finished in the developement, give the titles a kind of pseudo-gold status, just to release the game as early as they can.
But i really cant remember on a title by Activision, which got the Gold status (and of course a steam preorder too), without a gold status.
I just mean, that it really depends by the Gold of the game - especially for steam. I hope you know what i mean.. its pretty hard to explain the point.. because im german.. and whatever.. :D
But you could be right too....a new sell-record could be a big reason too... but im sure, not mainly

hey m8,
so, our systems are pretty similar. I'm playin' on a pavilion dv6 too.. And your system should be more than ok, for BO.

actually, i cant tell you exact details, but the game should run pretty good on your pavilion.

But i recommend you, to buy a external LCD-monitor (Full-HD). Its much cooler to play on a external LCD, as on the Notebook screen :)

I just wanted to know, if the german (DE) or austrian (AT) version of Black Ops will support english language!
I dont care about if it's cut or not, but i'd like to play with english language, because the german translations always kinda sucks!

Again, i'm just asking about the language/translation (text, speech, synchro), no making the game uncut...
It would be very annoying, that i must play with German Language!

Or would it be at least be working with some kind of patches, for translation only?

also the steam-version should be multi too.. because of the possibility to download the language (sub & dub)

It is still unknown, if the AT/CH PEGI supports english language or German only.
On the Austrian steam store you can buy 2 versions:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/42700/?cc=at

The first one obviously is the uncut intl. version with English, French, Italian and Spanish language.

So the 2nd one has to be the AT/CH PEGI Version and it looks like it supports only German language.

No call of duty title allow you to cut off arms or whatever.... the cut-off violence is JUST available on the zombie mode - not the main-multiplayer... just in the coop...

So, its NOT available in the german version.... you know.. the cut-off-violence-gore-whatever thing...

No call of duty title allow you to cut off arms or whatever.... the cut-off violence is JUST available on the zombie mode - not the main-multiplayer... just in the coop...

So, its NOT available in the german version.... you know.. the cut-off-violence-gore-whatever thing...

Negative... I can't tell you how many times I had limbs severed in Competitive Multiplayer on Call of Duty: World at War. Moreover, It was possible to do the same thing in Single Player Campaign.

""When is the release of BlackOps?

the official release date of BO is: 11/09/2010
and you can be sure, they dont change the date. Its Activision and not Blizzard or something like that.""

true..a big company never changes his mind

""What are the minimum requirements of Call of Duty: BlackOps?

Here are the official:
(confirmed by JD_2020 (Josh Olin, Treyarch Community Manager)

* OS: Windows® Vista / XP / 7
* Processor:Intel® Core™2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom™ X3 8750 or better
* Memory: 2GB
* HDD:12GB**
* Video: Shader 3.0 or better 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600GT / ATI Radeon® X1950Pro or better
* Sound: DirectX 9.0c-compatible
* DirectX: 9.0c""

good for my computer but ..i need a new hdd ;) ...

""Do i need Steam for playing BlackOps?

Short: yes!
Activision confirmed, that BlackOps will be exclsive running with Steam. That means of course NOT: that you only can buy the Game on Steam.
BUT: You need Steam and a Account (or you create one, if you bought BlackOps). Mainly, its the same princip like on MW2.
BlackOps will be installed and ONLY playable via your steamclient.""

SHORT:NO
I do not need steam to play great games like COD:MW2 or COD:Black Ops

I own COD: MW2 and do not use steam to play it and I will not activate the game (ACTIVATE a PRODUCT on STEAM)

Hey there, I gathered some information from the dev live chat that just took place:

The Q&A:


Regarding PC and Servers:

Q: What bonuses do you get from prestigeing?
A: Custom classes, colored clan tags and custom backgrounds for your emblem.

Q: What about anticheat?
A: "There are all sorts of magical things happening."

Q: Will PC have a Ping column?
A: Yes.

Q: Is FOV changeable on PC?
A: Yes, you can "take it to 80".

Q: Is PC restricted to 9v9 S&D or can you play all modes 9v9?
A: You can play all modes.

Q: Will Wager matches work on PC, and how?
A: There will be dedicated 6-slot servers hosted by Treyarch.

Q: Will PC users be able to edit their config, and how in-depth?
A: You can edit your config like in the other games.

Q: Will server hosts be able to host mixed servers, eg S&D + CTF?
A: You can set up a base Playlist and add exclusions to it.

Q: Will there be ground war?
A: TDM will have 18 slots, Domination will have 18 slots, too.

Q: Why are there playlists instead of free map rotation?
A: ""




[U]Regarding Gameplay:

Q: How did you balance SGs to become primary weapons?
A: [not at all] "You have to give up any hope of winning mid range and long range".

Q: Will you block the use of Grenade Launchers immediately after spawn?
A: Yes, there is a delay.

Q: Was knifing nerfed?
A: No, but since commando and tac-knifes were removed it's less annoying now.

Q: What weapons will be usable on unranked servers? All of them or just the ones you unlocked on ranked servers?
A: All of them, leveling is restricted to ranked servers.

Q: Will you get more points for an assist when you deal more damage?
A: "We hate feeling cheated [...]"




Misc:

Q: Will there be a Coop campaign similar to WaW?
A: No.





Comments:

> There are 15 Prestige levels, consisting of 50 levels each
> They are "almost positive" that there will be a pre-load.
> Maxslots Ranked = 18, Unranked = 24. Also they are "trying to increase the amount of unranked slots".
> There is no ETA on mod tools yet.
> There will be around 40 Weapons (MW2 had 43)
> Leaderboards are calculated per minute based on weekly, montly and all-time data.

well, actually there are no official information about a "swiss version". It should be the exactly same like the AT-PEGI version.. So 100 % uncut - only the missing swastikas...
I mean, swiss is a german-speaking country... so you should get the AT version - which is completely german.
but you swiss-guys never get the cut-german version, so keep cool :)

To the latest 2 questions:

- No SpecOps like in MW2. The new Coop will be the Zombie-Mode. Also the training-mode (if i right remember, it was playable as coop - the training mode)

- russian-versions are only playable in russian language. Because: russian versions are VERY cheap - and the income by blackops would fall down like a stone, if every1 would buy the russian version and just change the language to english/german/whatever...

Which providers are available to rent a server for BlackOps?
Well, thats the negative point on the Dedi-Server-System of BlackOps. Treyarch & activision allow you ONLY to rent servers by the provider: gameservers.com (www.gameservers.com). Activision awarded this kind of "exclusive-license" only to this one provider. So other companys are not allowed to rent out BlackOps servers. Well... thats how the Publisher-Hierarchy works.. But anyway... we got the Dedicated-Servers back - because of Treyarch. Cheers ;)



Seriously, what is it with game developers and dedicated servers now a days? Why are they doing stuff like this? This isn't the way to create a community around the game, it's just to make money. Way to screw the people who loves games.

I don't flame this game or Treyarch, I flame all the game developers who are seeing dedicated servers as a curse. And I hope they get punished by boycotts or lost sales.

It makes me a sad gamer and I won't support any game developer who does this anymore. (if it makes any cod player happier, I'm not happy how BFBC2 handles the servers. :()

Ok, i know your frustration - im german too. And i was pretty shocked too...
But look, at the moment, i specualte, that treyarch will allow us to overwrite the german sound/text with the english one. Because in the official forums, many germans are angry about that. Also treyarch promise us, to support the PC-Gamers more than the console people. So im pretty sure, some days/weeks after realese, it will be able to overwrite the german files with the english one. (of course without the violence - just the text and sound)

//edit
Also a language-change (in the steam-propertie-section) SHOULDNT be possible.

well, there was a official statement of the director designer of treyarch, why they give gameservers.com the exclusivity. The reason was - short:
- gameservers.com and treyarch working together for many years
- gameservers.com is the provider, which offer the best qualitiy and bandwith
- and some lil other points

in my opinion, its pretty hard for the other providers which offer dedicated-server. But otherwise: gameservers.com offer really good hardware, quality and fast bandwith. Also - imo - the prices are OK!. Of course not too cheap... but not expensive too... so im fine with the choose of treyarch....

Wait, so because gameservers.com is such a good service they need to make it the only possible one? I think their involvement hints to some more paid DLC, and also to that we probably won't have custom maps.

Then again, having all servers controlled by the same company makes management, patching etc easier.

good point, m8. There are of course positive and negative points on a exclusive server-provider. Positive is of course: its much easier and faster to spread DLC-Contents, Patches, Server-Client-Update and other Stuff by only one, exclusive Provider. That promise is us fast, more efficient support - and thats of course really important.

On the other side: trayarch or better: activision will be able to controll the prices (maybe DLCs too - i've heard the first DLC will be free).. and that could be pretty bad for us... but im still optimism about the Dedi-Provider, Treyarch and Activision ;)

No, both Activision and Blizzard are subsidiaries of their holding company Activision-Blizzard, which is owned by Vivendi SA. The companies still exist.

so what if you are german and you brag like hell that you wont buy the game because of the censor♥♥♥♥ included in your steam version. what if you receive a gift of game from an american or UK friend of yours. will you get a censored version or will you get standard american uncut. also if you get the american uncut, will you get full support and updates and other stuff? or will your gift get banned or better yet you get to be banned from steam totally...
thanks for any kind of useful answers..
Apparently, you can only activate Austrian and German keys in Germany. So you can buy the Austrian version if you want the game to be uncut, but either way it will be german. It appears the only way to get an uncensored english game is to have a friend from UK/USA gift it to you.


Edit: also lol at wikipedias activision page: "Activision is an American video game developer and publisher, majority owned by French conglomerate Vivendi SA. Activision is known for milking its Call of Duty franchise."

I beg to differ.

What are the minimum requirements of Call of Duty: BlackOps?

Here are the official:
(confirmed by JD_2020 (Josh Olin, Treyarch Community Manager)

* OS: Windows® Vista / XP / 7
* Processor:Intel® Core™2 Duo E6600 or AMD Phenom™ X3 8750 or better
* Memory: 2GB
* HDD:12GB**
* Video: Shader 3.0 or better 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600GT / ATI Radeon® X1950Pro or better
* Sound: DirectX 9.0c-compatible
* DirectX: 9.0c

Are you sure?

Im on a:

Nvidia GTX 260 1gb graphics card
Windows Vista
4 gb of ram
3.0 dual core processor
Directx 10
At least 70gb of space left

It refuses to play. Stuttering incredibly badly, and only 10 fps at the most.

This game is a waste of time until they release a patch to fix the stuttering problem. Game is unplayable with systems far exceeding the minimal requirements and all of this for a Direct X 9 game.....

Last time I ever buy a game with the Activision or Trevarch tag, they only care for the consoles and your an idiot if you think otherwise. Their history has proven it in the last 2 years. They didn't even bother to have a beta for this game, I should have known better, now I do.

yeah, they have to fix this kind of "protocol-problem".
Sometimes it works, to play with ppl which use another version - sometimes not.. Mainly there is a problem with friends, which wanna invite you or join the game where you're playin' ... but im pretty sure, treyarch already work on a hotfix for the performance-unbalance and the protocol-problem.

I agree. Sorry, but this game is not playable for me. I've upgraded my memory to 4 GB and got a new CPU from e6750 to an e8500, still got massive FPS drops. From 60+ to 4... and freeze.

Has anyone ever really considered hard drive usage? Has anyone else ever experienced "joiner lag" in other games? I can almost guarantee that's what part of this lag issue is. Sure other things may be involved, but try shutting down everything else that may use your hard drive and see what happens. I've found that after a couple minutes of playing and running around the map, most of the lag is gone because much of it is loaded.

I've also changed the multi-gpu and multi-cpu settings to fit my computer, and have been met with great results. I'm playing on a C2D P8400/9800M GTS (yes, a 2-3 year old gaming laptop) and 1920x1080 with very little lag after everything has loaded. I'm still plagued with some network issues (router crashes now & then due to high traffic from the game), but otherwise the game has become largely playable for me.

Try this: if using nVidia, choose the "custom" setting when installing. Custom has an option to do a 'clean' install, which can fix problems like this. If using ATI, uninstall drivers & use driver sweeper, then reinstall drivers.

You know what sucks? These websites giving this game a high score. Really it should have been a 7.5 because of the stability problems, I mean, a ton of good PC games got $h!tlo@ds of crap just by being unstable, I don't understand why Blacks Ops gets a free pass.

They should have indicated that the game only works on Intel Core i7 and the equivalent processor and that those with lower specifications should wait for the patch to be released.

Who told you this? It is not correct. You just need to USE Steam to play, not buy it through Steam. I bought mine elsewhere also, and play online (with Steam) just fine.

nononon, i have bought it from a local store, and it asks steam to install, all you have to do is activate the key with steam, and install by using cd verification not online or if you want to download a huge amounts of gb, then its your choise, cheers :D

i was fed up with the whole series after knives and tubes in mw2, treyarch brought stuff like gungame in and it was fun when i rented it for 360.
now ive bought a broken game. awesome.

fact: this game is $60 worth of unplayable nothingness

Does Treyarch intend to add the console back in? Sucks that they removed it. Though it was annoyingly missing a connect command.

Multiplayer still has the console.
