Treyarch, the developers behind Call of Duty: Black Ops III, just chimed in while at Gamescom to give PC owners specific details for their version of the upcoming First-Person-Shooter.

In Cologne for Gamescom, Black Ops III is currently “running on 36 rigs at the nVidia booth for anyone at the show to play.” The developer is hoping to be as accommodating as possible for the wide span of PC owners, say that they are “focused on delivering performance for the widest range of hardware possible, while being able to scale on high-end rigs.”

On the Treyarch blog, the Call of Duty: Black Ops III development team has revealed a plethora of features they are planning have implemented specifically for the PC crowd:

  • 100% Ranked Dedicated Servers
  • 2-Player Split Screen
  • Seamless Game Controller Support
  • Strong GPU scaling, SLI and Crossfire Optimizations, and 4K monitor support make the game look and run great at full 4K resolution
  • FOV Slider
  • Framerate Cap Slider
  • Improved Text Chat features available in-game and also now in lobbies.
  • Fantastic Steam Trading Cards – collect them all!
  • Treyarch Anti-Cheat (TAC)

The blog also reiterated the minimum specs that Black Ops III would required, which was initially revealed by the team in May:

  • Operating System: Windows 7 64-Bit / Windows 8 64-Bit / Windows 8.1 64-Bit
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-530 @ 2.93 GHz / AMD Phenom™ II X4 810 @ 2.60 GHz

  • Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 470 @ 1GB / ATI® Radeon™ HD 6970 @ 1GB
  • DirectX: Version 11

These settings have a possibility of changing though as Treyarch adds “more optimization  and advanced graphics features”, but for now the above appears to be the barrier for entry. We’ll have more news on Call of Duty: Black Ops III as we approach the title’s November 6th release date.
