Treyarch has detailed some of the PC-exclusive features that will come built into Call of Duty: Black Ops II, including DirectX 11 support and some other “significant improvements.”
Apparently the PC version will make more efficient use of GPU power than the console version, which is ironic because most modern gaming PCs tend to have more GPU power than the Xbox 360 and PS3. The developer did also note that the game will not run on Windows XP.
The PC version will also feature enhanced lighting, shadows, anti-aliasing, bloom, depth of field, ambient occlusion and other enhanced effects.
Treyarch also released these here official PC system requirements for the game, which still doesn’t have a release date. Although something tells me a November release date might just be in the cards.
