Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 – Dedicated server and FOV slider announced

The PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 gets supposedly dedicated servers and a FOV slider.The PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 gets supposedly dedicated servers and a FOV slider.

The PC version of the just announced shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 use for all Ranked matches 100 percent dedicated servers. That has Cesar Stastny, who now announced for the PC game development competent Director of Development at the development studio Treyarch, via Twitter.

Thus, the third branch of the CoD-sub series located in a row with the two previous games, so Stastny. Even with Black Ops and Black Ops 2 you've finally been set to dedicated servers.

It is hoped that at least Treyarch also keeps its word in this regard. After all, there was selbige announcements well in advance of publication of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Call of Duty: Ghosts already. And much to the displeasure of the future community. In the end, namely turned out that it is in the system used by a Hybrid solution from Dedicated servers and Peer2Peer connections is. The result was massive lag and a haven for cheaters.

Worth reading:Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - Dedicated Bullshit (column)

Of course, it must in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 does not come to that. That there is another way, the responsible development team has already proven. used Black Ops 2 system has its weaknesses: However, the Call of Duty had. So there were indeed dedicated servers, but have all been provided by Treyarch and loaded automatically from matchmaking with players. A private leasing the server or even control over the server settings through a publication of the necessary server files was, however, not provided.

In addition, however, the development studio is also otherwise to the PC gamers. So Stastny promises about already for release a FOV slider for the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Op 3. This setting option for the field of view, there were already in the two direct predecessors.

With respect to a frame rate-limiting wanted or Stastny could not speak concretely, however. However, he also points here on Black Ops 2, where there was no upper Bordered at least in the single-player and multiplayer zombie. The regular multiplayer mode was reported to be sealed off at 200 frames per second. but as a universal statement for Black Ops 3 it was still too early, the Director of Development.

By the way, Mark Lamia, studio head at Treyarch, denied against the use of the term "port" in connection with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The game will for the PC, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 developed in parallel and players also presented on all these platforms in advance of publication. Too much compromising on graphics quality are PC gamers therefore not expected to have to do - apart from possible restrictions by a possibly already outdated engine.

After all, the shooter on the PC has been, however, presented in full 4K resolution.

If it is not yet come to some form of port at the end remains to be seen. At the moment, keep persistent rumors about a possible version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation third

Acer HN274Hbmiiid – first 3D TFT in 27-inch format

The 120-hertz TFT Acer with the unpronounceable name HN274Hbmiiid exceeds the test thanks to its 27-inch format (68.8 cm diagonal), the highest maximum as a 23.6-inch (59.9 cm) available 3D TFTs noticeably in size, even if the resolution remains the same as 1920x1080 pixels. has been consistently designed the Acer TFT on the 3D display, shows not only the 120 Hertz panel but also invisibly into the display frame infrared transmitter and the accompanying shutter glasses, both Nvidia 3D Vision Kitcome. If you have a GeForce graphics card, so you can immediately play with the Acer HN274H in stereoscopic 3D. At a price of 600 euros which is however not very favorable task, even if the 3D Vision kit included (at least 120 euros in the trade) puts the high price a bit.

With the 600-euro HN274Hbmiiid Acer's first 3D TFT with 120 hertz refresh rate in 27-inch format on the market.With the 600-euro HN274Hbmiiid Acer's first 3D TFT with 120 hertz refresh rate in 27-inch format on the market.

Game review

In game test immediately the extremely high luminosity of the anti-reflective TN panel catches the eye. With measured 428.9 cd / m² it outperforms most available TFTs significantly, benefiting mainly playing in 3D mode. Since lost a lot of brightness due to the shutter technique when changing lenses darken goes, here is worth the high maximum brightness of the display. In Metro 2033take your environment as well as in the sometimes very dark passages easily true while you may lose details in less luminous 3D TFTs well. On the HN274H act 3D games but despite the light-absorbing glasses vivid and brilliant. In addition, the 3D effect works better the larger the display is. With its 27-inch diagonal, high luminosity and the easily configurable 3D Vision set is the Acer TFT bottom line one of the best 3D TFTs on the market because no other previously tested by us 120 Hertz monitor acts plastic, homogeneous and strongly colored in 3D mode. In 2D mode, however, you should reduce the brightness, otherwise the panel lights so strong that the colors outshine violently and thereby act washed out.

The shutter glasses swallows much light through the darkening of the glasses - The HN274H like this with its high brightness but excellent from.The shutter glasses swallows much light through the darkening of the glasses - The HN274H like this with its high brightness but excellent from.

The fast measured response time of 8 milliseconds and the maximum refresh rate of 120 hertz make the HN274H also off of 3D fully suitable for gaming. In the test, we found no streaks or blurring edges even in very fast titles. On the contrary: With 120 frames per second (= 120 Hz) act fast movements such as rapid rotation around its own axis in shooters noticeably smoother and more stable than in the classic 60-Hertz mode.

picture quality

The anti-glare display shows no disturbing reflections of piano lacquer frame already, even in daylight.The anti-glare display shows no disturbing reflections of piano lacquer frame already, even in daylight.

Because of the 27-inch format, the pixels at Acer HN274H are slightly larger than TFTs with a smaller size, but with the same resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. But in the test we noticed that neither text document nor in games particularly negative effect on the image always makes a homogeneous impression without clearly visible pixel edges. In direct comparison to 23.6-inch models with the same resolution as well as a classic 24-inch TFT with 1920x1200 pixels fine structures act in games or small fonts when HN274H but somewhat coarser and less uniform.

The picture quality is consistently good in the middle, especially the highly uniform illumination of the panel like us. Although the color display can not keep up with panels with IPS or VA technology, goes something calibration effort but fine. The maximum contrast is despite the high maximum brightness with 770: 1 but only in the midfield, which stems from the relatively poor black level, which can drift slightly greyish dark areas in games or movies. The viewing angles are typical TN relatively narrow, especially when playing in 3D mode you should anyway but to be centrally located as possible before the monitor.

Equipment, operation and processing

The consistent focus on 3D also show the three HDMI 1.4a inputs, the date has no other 3D PC monitor and also process 3D signals from Blu-ray players or Playstation 3 - then the HN274Hbmiiid be as use replacement for a 3D TV. To play on a PC with 120 Hertz (whether in 3D or not) but you must continue to use the included dual-link DVI cable because the HDMI connection does not support 120 pictures in the native Full HD resolution of the TFT.

The operation is fine, thanks to the fast responsive touch keys and the clear menu. but the reflective piano finish of the display frame showing some annoying reflections in bright environments, as well as the somewhat shaky and barely adjustable stand cost points.

H1Z1 – Average food and wishful thinking

H1Z1 - Average food and wishful thinking

After the launch of the zombie survival MMO H1Z1 we were the first auditions stunned by the quality, since accused the developer Sony Online Entertainment along with a Pay2Win in-game shop as fee-Alpha in the market and previous promises broke.

A week later, a lot has happened: The developer has developed in the chord patches, apologized for false statements and bolted to the in-game shop. We declare in the second preview, now what actually is in the game - and why the handle to the Early Access version still does not pay.

The usual game

H1Z1 is a zombie survival MMO, like DayZ or Infestation: Survivor Stories (formerly known as The War Z). So we start scantily dressed and fight without equipment in a zombie infested, open game world, and must face the undead, other players, wild animals and hunger and thirst. For this we bulldoze rusty cars and abandoned buildings and bring us resources such as food and wood from the forest - or we stop at nothing to get to equipment.

a Campfirst Lootour yield&# 8203;

a CampA camp! We immediately run back there to scour it for useful objects.

first LootA backpack and an ax lying directly on the picnic table - not a bad first Fund.

our yieldA look at the inventory shows that we have not bad at all cleared.

The title of Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) is so classic and close to the genre conventions that innovations with a magnifying glass must be sought. Otherwise, only the manufacture of articles feels that, because before crafting stands out the discovery of a new recipe. We are moving objects in a corresponding window and H1Z1 tells us then if we can use it to discover a new blueprint. This gives the game a certain first discovery of character, but the function is not brand new but known from various role-playing - Guild Wars 2 for example.

The request concert

And it was out of features that you do not even 7 Days To Die, DayZ or Rust knows. According to Sony Online Entertainment provides you look at the final game to be extremely social experience before, come together in the players into groups, build bases and forts and claim areas for themselves. Trade and wars between the groupings to be seasoned with the omnipresent zombie danger and loner from player to player City city be on the road and offer their treasures found.

resource searchThe discoveryThe finished item&# 8203;

resource searchThe first item produced in H1Z1 is probably always the arc. We first collect a few branches.

The discoverywe must first discover many recipes - what could be the branches with a scrap of fabric probably result?

The finished itemAnd since we have discovered it - the bow, which we now find producible items in our list.

This idea of ​​a survival game sounds not only extremely attractive (we would want to play this H1Z1 immediately), it is also extremely ambitious. Because SOE has to ensure not only make a decent game, but one that suggests the players in an open world full of possibilities just that style of play.

And: This idea is still nothing to see H1Z1. This is first of the game, which is obviously far from this wishful thinking of a zombie MMO. But the players remember their interactions more like the cavemen from Rust that go off indiscriminately with sticks and stones on each other, rather than to understand murder and manslaughter as a consequence of a failed social interaction.

Alienware M11x R3 – 11.6-inch midget with Geforce GT 540M

Meanwhile, Alienware offers thought to play M11x R3 Subnotebook in the third revision. While the first version put 2 Duo to a Core and the second version was equipped with a Core-i processor of the first generation, there is the M11x R3 now with the very latest Sandy Bridge CPUs. At market launch, the two variants are: The entry represents the Core i5 2537M, which is clocked at 1.4 to 2.3 GHz (thanks to Turbo) and has 3.0 MB of L3 cache. It follows the 1.5 to 2.6 GHz fast Core i7 2617M with 4.0 MB L3 cache. In our test device is a minimally faster Core i7 2657M with two cores, 4.0 MB L3 cache and 1.6 to 2.7 GHz clock stuck. Whether Alienware offers the Core i7 2657M for end users, but is currently still not sure. In addition, all three CPUs are power-saving ULV models ( "Ultra Low Voltage"), otherwise the cooling would be quickly overwhelmed in the small 11.6 inch chassis.

Many freedoms can Alienware you in the hard disk. In addition to 250 to 750 gigabytes of traditional hard drives, a 256 GB SSD can be configured surcharge. The RAM ranges from 2.0 up to 16.0 GB. Colors are red or black to choose from. but the graphics card is always an Nvidia GeForce GT 540M, a DirectX 11 midrange model. The M11x R3 with 250-gigabyte hard drive, 4.0 GB of RAM and the faster Core i7 2617M currently costs 1,300 euros. Our test model, however, it was a pre-production model. As especially as temperatures, fan behavior and software, nor changes in the vending machines can therefore result. If this is the case, we update the test.

casing

The housing has not changed compared to its predecessor. The M11x R3 is decorated in a futuristic style. Many adjustable lighting elements ensure a quick orientation in the dark. Our test model red is definitely an eye catcher. I particularly enjoyed us like insensitive and pleasant rubberized surfaces that cover the housing bottom, the sides and the display lid.

In terms of processing, the M11x R3 is moving at a high level, with our prototype device had two small flaws. First, the subnotebook was not completely flat on the ground, as the right front corner was slightly raised. Secondly, the palm rest right not closed off perfectly with the soft-touch surface, resulting in a sharp edge. Material is total quality, down to the slightly cheap-looking plastic of the palm rest. Even with the stability of the M11x R3 collects pluses: With the exception of the display, the housing is very rigid. The surface is very resistant to pollution, only the non-glare glossy display rapidly accumulates fingerprints. Weighing in at just under two kilograms and a size of 28.6 times 23.3 times 3.3 cm, the 11.6-inch model can be easily transported.

equipment

Instead of the three USB 2.0 ports predecessor R3 has the M11x now a USB 2.0 port (left) and two USB 3.0 ports (right). Otherwise, the connections are largely identical to the last revision. Left rear there is a Kensington lock and a DisplayPort and HDMI output. Further ahead, you will find Gigabit LAN (previously 100 Mbps), a card reader, and Firewire. The sound ports are located on the right side. Wi-Fi (a / b / g / n) and Bluetooth (version 3.0) are also on board. For a subnotebook, the equipment is more than convincing. However, an optical drive, a VGA output, an ExpressCard slot and an eSATA port are missing. To install games from DVD, so you must buy a replacement external drive, which increases the price of the notebook accordingly. Alternatively, only the digital shopping, for example by steam remains.

touchpadkeyboard&# 8203;

touchpadThe honeycomb surface of the touchpad offers a good compromise between lubricity and feedback.

keyboardFor the color of the backlight are open to you some options such as red, blue, green or yellow when buying.

The input devices of the M11x R3 leave a good impression overall. The illuminated keyboard has a decent typing behavior, pressure point and stop are sufficiently defined. The layout we got used to fast, even if the rather narrow keys (15 mm wide) initially led to numerous incorrect entries. The relatively loud noise tip comes not very good in quiet environments such as libraries. The 8.0 by 4.3 cm touchpad is relatively accurate and reliable. The surface consists of a fine honeycomb pattern that forms a good compromise between feedback and glide. In addition to the multi-touch input with various gestures (scrolling, zooming & Rotate) the touchpad supports a horizontal and vertical scroll area.

In addition, the touchpad using the supplied "Alien Touch" software can (more on that in the test for Notebookcheck.com) customized to your preferences. Since it is offset slightly to the left, check it when using "WASD" in games but often unintentionally. The two rickety mouse buttons fall off significantly high because the trigger behavior very undefined and vague fails.

Gears of War
Just like the co-op mode of the video game role model is the 2011 published board game version of Gears of War on coverage, teamwork - and chainsaws. up to four plastic COGs to fight four through all kinds of plastic Locusts to meet in randomly hand craft level missions. A game can last loose two to three hours - and is not far behind the co-presentation in terms of fun factor." data-lbx-number ="1"><b>Gears of War</b><br>Just like the co-op mode of the video game role model is the 2011 published board game version of Gears of War on coverage, teamwork - and chainsaws. up to four plastic COGs to fight four through all kinds of plastic Locusts to meet in randomly hand craft level missions.

Big Brain Academy
Okay, this transformation is obvious. Like the Nintendo DS title also provides the board game version of their players before brainteasers, logic tests and Merkspielchen they need to resolve as quickly and accurately. Two teams compete against each other when timepiece is an hourglass, for dissolved duties's "Grips chips" in a pan. A classic board game so that gains by the time factor added attraction.

Doom
If we were bad (and that we are actually getting), then we would say that the Gears of War board game is only copied. And of Doom, the classic among games conversions from 2004. Here, too, fight up to four (with an extension even up to six) Marines through hell monster miniatures. Here, the board game Doom even developed more tactical depth than the original - thoroughly recommended!" data-lbx-number ="3"><b>Doom</b><br>If we were bad (and that we are actually getting), then we would say that the Gears of War board game is only copied.

For the demo you've been thinking about new horror and how it can function in VR. The developers presented to even some of the scenes in her studio to find out what would be exactly that scary.

Unlike planned: Resident Evil 7 resembled original Resident Evil 6 very

Lessons about fear

Another lesson: Do not show the monster. "One of Erkenntis that we restrain ourselves in marketing and show as little as possible from the game itself. So we just spread the people reactions Kitchen to the demo. For example, if the screaming or the headset tore off his head. Some were shaking all over my body, "says the developer.

The concept worked: The Kitchen demo Word spread quickly and was still at E3 for tip among visitors. Later she went viral without Capcom had published their own scenes from it. Advertising for the main game was allowed therefore deliberately fail minimalist. "You must not show too much, not too much in advance betrayed," says Kazuhiro Takahara.

In our video experiment we tested on the editorial board in 2016 itself, how shocking the Kitchen demo. The results speak for themselves. In the end, Resident Evil 7 turned on the PC as a turning point for the series.
