Next-Gen Call Of Duty: Ghosts Has Nothing On The PC Version
I’m all for a good visual comparison of games that release on various platforms sometimes. Most of the time (read, nearly 99%) it’s the PC that comes out miles ahead of its console companions in terms of visual fidelity, but considering that consoles have reached their sixth birthday, that’s not entirely surprising. With next0gen around the corner, many console fans were probably hoping for a day when they could throw some pretty screenshots in the Master Race’s face, although that day might not even come.
Well, when it comes to Call of Duty: Ghosts, that day will never come after Infinity Ward have revealed that the PC version of their next entry into the popular franchise will be the most visually impressive, even with the next-gen versions taken into account. According to the game’s executive producer, Mark Rubin, the studio has spent additional time on the PC version this time around, making sure that players will see a noticeable difference between the platforms.

In the past, the PC versions of Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty titles used the exact same assets as the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, meaning those with exceptionally powerful hardware would struggle to see any real differences. That is not the case this time around however.
“Now, PC has its own set of assets. It’s going to look better than any Call of Duty we’ve ever made on PC.”
The PC version will also feature more assets than the next-gen versions of Call of Duty: Ghosts, which are expected to look considerably better than current-gen versions.
“They’re actually using an even higher version in many cases than the next-gen consoles, from a texture standpoint.”
But, as you’d expect, visuals are really the only department that will differ from platform to platform, with gameplay and features being standardised throughout. It’s not really anything that should come as news to PC gamers, but knowing that their games will look better than even next0gen consoles is sure to make their day in terms of bragging rights. So why wait, start now in the comments below. I’ll go grab some popcorn quickly.
