Treyarch has been very vocal about changes they have made for Black Ops 4, including a recent a Reddit post discussing the customization of the field of view (FOV) for PC players.
The update comes as a part of a series the developers are calling “what can you tell us about [insert specific feature here]” and gets right to the heart of the matter.
CoD BO4 is set to release in October 2018, but with events like E3, the anticipation for the game and its new features will only continue to grow.
One aspect of the game developers said they wanted to focus in on was the PC experience and some changes such as field of view customization are on the way to help optimize the way players interface.
Treyarch noted that the default setting is at 90 degrees but is scalable down to a minimum of 60 and up to a maximum of 120.
They expanded on this matter in their recent Reddit post.
In the ongoing series of “what can you tell us about [insert specific feature here]” many PC players are curious about the options to adjust their field-of-view. Well, you can, but there’s more to it than that!
For starters, the PC version default FOV is 90 degrees (whereas it’s 80 on the consoles). It can be scaled down to a single degree (if 91 degrees works better for you, go for it), with a minimum of 60 degrees and a maximum of 120 degrees.
What does that do? Obviously, the wider FOV allows you to see more width of the map in front of you. Change the settings in the menu to find the perspective that works best for you.
It’s also important to note the support of 4K monitors and 21:9 and 32:9 setups also makes it important to provide a simple way to change your view perspective.
So, here’s a question: how many of you PC players actually change your FOV, play around with it, settle on a different number or stick with the default
Some players have commented raising concerns about the gun model scale changing with the FOV, Treyarch is yet to respond.
As the developer cater more heavily to PC players there will undoubtedly be more questions asked, and answered, surrounding specific details about the platform's version of the game.
