The lights are on
It's fun to gun someone down in Call of Duty, and Activision is betting it's also fun to watch. Black Ops II's video streaming feature just found a wider audience thanks to hosting on YouTube.
The live gameplay videos users take in multiplayer League Play can now be streamed to YouTube (with a verified account), complete with the player's webcam and audio commentary if applicable. These streams are also watchable in Call of Duty Elite. If you're a member of the service, you can also click on users' names and find out stats about them such as their loadouts and other data.
Activision says that there will be some restrictions with the live streams, but it didn't specify what. If you like to game in the nude, we imagine it's best to turn your webcam off.
Today's announcement applies only to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Black Ops II. The company did not mention the PC and Wii U editions.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II comes out on November 13 (and November 18 for Wii U).
