Treyarch continues to show they have every intention to replace Infinity Ward as the predominant provider of quality Call of Duty games. The latest evidence of such a fact: Call of Duty: Black Ops will feature dedicated servers for PC multiplayer. Treyarch’s previous Call of Duty game, World at War, also included dedicated servers, but so did Infinity Ward’s original Modern Warfare.
Studio head Mark Lamia had this to say about dedicated servers:
“We do work very hard to reconcile the desire to manipulate and modify those dedicated servers with offering them the persistent experience and benefits that the console system provides.
We’re working very hard to marry those two things, so people can run dedicated servers and also participate in the communal experience the console players get to have, given they’re all on first-party servers.”
Of course, we’ve known that Black Ops would include dedicated servers since the game was a rumor floating around on the internet. To hear studio head at Treyarch state their dedication to the idea is a great thing, though. Nazi zombies wouldn’t be as much fun unless you had full server control!
Glad that Call of Duty will once again have dedicated servers, Ranters? Or do you prefer Modern Warefare 2‘s method of control and a ‘persistent experience’?
