Black Ops 2: Twitch’s Live Broadcasting Service to Be Integrated In-Game

By   /   3 years ago

Twitch already had revealed their plans last year of incorporating their broadcasting services into grade A games. Today Activision and Treyarch have announced that they will be working with Twitch to integrate a streaming feature right into Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

This move will allow players to easily stream their games without the need for additional streaming equipment like a webcam and audio setup. Additionally non-techy users can now enter a new world of broadcasting, of which they might previously have stayed away from. On the click of a single button your game will directly feed through Twitch and come live on the web.

The said service will be brought in for all the platforms – PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Call of Duty Elite viewers will be able to see the player card of streaming users, as well as loadouts, match data and career stats across all Elite supported Call of Duty titles.

In a press release, Treyarch’s studio head Mark Lamia said

Making Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 not only fun to play, but also fun to watch was a key goal from the beginning of development. We pushed ourselves to build these features right into the game in order to make live streaming as accessible and as social as possible for everyone.

One of the things that makes this so special is that there’s no need for additional hardware or equipment, we want our fans to be able to share their experiences with the world.

The Revolution map pack for Black Ops 2 was released yesterday for the Xbox 360.
