The CoD Black Ops team has created beautiful graphics using 2005 technology
It’s a good surprise for its publisher, Activision: Call of Duty Black Ops has beaten the sales figures (US+UK) of its predecessor Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Both games have earned the title of “most anticipated games” ahead of their respective launches and both now sit at the #1 and #2 spot for historic video games sales. Black Ops has generated $360M on its first day in the stores. It’s nothing short of “delirious” in the video games industry.
The Call of Duty franchise has been a huge hit and shows how popular that game genre is. The game, which features an very good graphics engine and amazing artwork, is one of the best-looking war games out there (if not the best). The fact that it uses the equivalent of DirectX 9 on game console is a testament to the talent of the production team. If you haven’t seen the game yet, we’ve added a video in the full post.
