Black Ops II to support stereoscopic 3D

Black Ops II to support stereoscopic 3D

Activision has partnered up with LG to promote Black Ops II “across multiple consumer touch-points, including TV, cinema, digital and retail marketing.”

At select retailers, buying the game along with an LG CINEMA 3D TV will bring you a discount, while the TV comes with six pairs of 3D glasses.

The retail promotion runs from November 13 to November 21, in more than 2.000 electronics stores in the United States. A 3D trailer of the game will be shown at select Best Buy retail outlets across the US starting today.

“As game developers and storytellers, we want to take advantage of every opportunity to immerse players in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II experience and LG’s 3D technology helps to do just that,” said Mark Lamia, studio head of developer Treyarch.

“We are thrilled to team up with LG, which shares this same passion to bring gamers to the edge of their seats with realistic visuals and heart-pounding gameplay. And with LG Dual Play, for the first time ever, two players can each have their own full-screen experience while playing Multiplayer or Zombies split-screen.”

Although that last bit might be inaccurate, since Sony was promoting a TV with the same split-screen/fullscreen function during Resistance’s 2011 release, that’s what Lamia said.

The game is due out on November 13 on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U during the console’s launch.
