Call of Duty Black Ops Next Gen Features.
The iconic Black Ops series is back for an all-new, next-generation experience with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War – the direct sequel to the original and fan-favorite Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Developed for next generation consoles by Treyarch and Raven Software, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is now available to play on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and PC via Battle.net. So here’s everything you need to know about the game on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Get started on PlayStation 5
First of all, make sure you’re playing the next-gen version of #BlackOpsColdWar on PlayStation 5:
With that out of the way, there’s a huge range of options that affect how players see, hear and play Black Ops Cold War, adding and removing some aspects of the HUD to a multitude of options for the mixing sound. This is one of the most customizable Call of Duty games to date, focused on giving gamers control over their experience through the settings where users can find detailed descriptions
below each option to clear up any confusion about what each slider, switch, or toggle does.
PS5 players can customize how their controller works in-game, increasing or decreasing sensitivity, turning controller sounds on and off, and adjusting automatic movements. More customization here.
A fully immersive experience
There’s been a lot of talk about the immersive storytelling in Black Ops Cold War, but what’s next-gen sound like and how will the technological advancements
increase the experience:
o 3D Audio: Using the very latest 3D audio technology, Black Ops Cold War audio represents the latest next-generation audio, enabling better spatialization and directionality, including spatial in-game voice chat. This allows for unprecedented placement of 3D sound – not just in front of or behind the listener, but also above or below. Sony’s HRTF 3D audio also provides the most tactile combat experience yet in a Black Ops game, with customizable capabilities.
o Threat Priority Audio System: The new audio system dynamically prioritizes different sounds during a firefight, so the player can hear all the sounds need to be successful, and nothing they don’t.
o Physically modeled audio support: This system helps Treyarch and Raven sound designers provide accurate modeling of the world and help automate occlusion, reverb and decay into maps by replicating how sound waves actually move in complex spaces, helping the team during the game credibly audio can recreate environments.
The team used recorded world data for their lighting, reaction and clothing. The engine also supports true ambient lighting, so that the light reaches everywhere as it should. This combined with a perfectly rendered sky makes it a pleasure for the eyes.
Haptic Feedback and smooth gameplay
Players can take advantage of 120Hz support, which means less lag and a smoother gameplay experience. With HRTF 3D audio you get a unique experience in terms of sound, in addition, PS5 players get the haptic feedback via the new controller. The controller will vibrate and shake when you pull the trigger. All of this has been fine-tuned to fit the loadout perfectly.
