Today Activision Publishing announced that Black Ops 2′s live stream feature will stream to YouTube directly from the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 game console. Players will be able to stream the multiplayer, League Play games, and they will have the ability to use a webcam, and give audio commentary while playing.
Just like League of Legends, the came can be streamed straight to the Call Of Duty Elite website. And you can get some information about the stream on the Elite stream page. It will show loadouts, recent matches, and some of the players stats.
”From the beginning of development with Call of Duty: Black Ops II, the team has been pushing boundaries on every front to offer Call of Duty fans things that they haven’t been able to do before,” said Mark Lamia, studio head of Treyarch. “With our competitive play and eSports initiatives, we wanted to deliver live streaming capabilities built right into Call of Duty: Black Ops II, because Call of Duty is not only fun and exciting to play, but we believe it will be just as exciting to watch. By making the capability of live streaming as accessible as possible to our fans, straight from a player’s console without the need for any additional hardware or sophisticated setups, we are empowering our fans to share their multiplayer experiences.”
Now in order to live stream straight to YouTube you will need a verified YouTube account. And to stream to CoD Elite, you will need a valid registration as well.
All of this is great in the ability to stream the game world wide. There are a large amount of great players who never really get their chance to show off their skills. This being a first of its kind will allow those players to show off their abilities in this game. Treyarch has been making great strides to grow CoD in the eSports world. Only better things are to come! The future is BLACK! … in 5 days!
