The biggest title to date to utilise 3D gameplay, Black Ops will offer an insight into the 3D format wars that is undoubtedly set to ensue between the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC gaming formats. To make use of the 3D gameplay, users of the Black Ops title will need the relevant console updates and a 3D ready TV or monitor along with a pair of active shutter glasses.

Talking on the company’s decision to include 3D in the upcoming COD release, Treyarch’s Mark Lamia said: "Development of stereoscopic 3D began as an R&D project, but once we saw what the technology brought to the Call of Duty experience, what a great fit and how immersive it was, we knew that we had to develop it for Black Ops.”
