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.

Call of Duty Mobile’s Anniversary update is in full effect to celebrate the launch of Season 11 and a few big surprises are on the way, including a limited time second map for the battle royale mode.

It’s the one year anniversary of CoD Mobile and the developers are celebrating in a big way. The full Season 11 patch notes outlined a bunch of new content on the horizon. From new rewards and weapons to a full Battle Pass and plenty more, there’s a ton to play for amidst the festivities.

However, there’s also plenty more excitement set to carry the hype through the entire season. Chief among the additions is a special, limited-time map coming just for the battle royale playlist. If you’re a long-time Call of Duty player, you’ll know the location all too well.

Blackout’s Alcatraz map will be available to play alongside the standard Isolated battle royale map you know already.

Blackout’s Alcatraz map is making a return for a limited time in CoD Mobile.

“For our Anniversary Season we’re adding a limited time second map with Alcatraz,” the developers revealed on October 14. This location hasn’t been seen in Call of Duty since Black Ops 4’s take on the battle royale genre with Blackout.

If you weren’t around for its original run, Blackout is a considerably smaller map than what you might be used to in CoD Mobile. “Keep your head on a swivel and take advantage of the map’s verticality,” they advised. “Get up high and rain destruction on your enemies below.”

Similar to Warzone for PC and console players, plenty of vehicles were scattered around the original Blackout map. Expect to see some of those make a return, though every other gameplay element will play exactly the same as you’re used to.

It’s worth noting, however, that this map won’t be a permanent addition to the mobile experience. Alcatraz is included for the Anniversary celebration before it disappears again. Though given how much effort would have been required to port the map to CoD Mobile, it’s likely not the last time we see it.

Keep on high alert at all times as Alcatraz is a much smaller battle royale map than Isolation.

Expect to see plenty of surprises in the battle royale playlist throughout the next month. From new weapons to mods and a ton of balance updates, it’s easily one of the biggest patches to date.
