Infinity Ward working on adding a FOV changer to the PC version of Ghosts

multi610

Infinity Ward has announced that they are working on adding a FOV changer for the PC version of Call of Duty: Ghosts. Many fans have been asking for this due to the FOV currently being locked. Up until now, fans have been using a 3rd party software to change the FOV, but Infinity Ward stated today that all 3rd party software users will be banned.

FOV Changer for PC: Don’t have an exact ETA, but we’re working to get this in.

    JUST FUCKING YES!

  • YOnnua

    THIS IS MAYBE THE MOST GOOD VERY COOL THING THEY WILL HAVE DONE FOR THE GAME PLS THIS IS OKEY I LOVE IT FOV I USE 90 SO FUN HAHA THIS IS REALLY THE BEST WHAT THA FCAKKK IM IN LOVE WITH THIS!

    • Sal

      Watch out or you’re going to cut yourself on that edge, bro.

  • Tep Kok

    Wow, IW adding basic features to the game? Fucking amazing work right there.

    • Sal

      FOV only became a basic feature on BO.

      • http://www.callofdutyview.net/ Dragon

        Hit the console – cg_fov 90… or since the very first COD.

      • manu

        you really know nothing about this please!!!! since the first ever cod you could use that command in the console … basically the command is same on every q3 engine made game

    • TheShadowReaper

      best thing is that they will ban whoever uses a 3rd party software to changing the FOV while still they havent released anything 1st party for it. we are getting banned for using a basic feature on a FPS game. facking amazing IW, you just lost all credibility for me. fucking amateur morons of a developer.

      • Sal

        “They”, no, VAC will, because it doesn’t give a shit about how beneficial your third party program will be, it will hammer you no matter if you’re using just a FOV changer or a hacking program.

        VAC doesn’t discern programs from one another anymore. Either that or MW3′s FOV changer worked differently, because this one directly intervenes with the game, and VAC hammers anyone using a program that intervenes with the game no matter what.

        • TheShadowReaper

          yes, that VAC shit too. it was good once upon a time but it has fallen short to other features that have progressed through time when VAC is still stuck back to 1999.

          • Sal

            I think the MW3 one was okay because it just added a cg_fov command to the config_mp.cfg. On Ghosts, this command doesn’t work so it has to be running and directly interferes with the game itself. Which on VAC’s eyes is unnaceptable.

            Think of VAC as that brutal but effective policeman.

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        They said that the FoV Changer was permitted.

        • TheShadowReaper

          go tell that to Valve VAC security. they wont understand what you’re talking about, i assure you.

    • aYonaut

      I don’t use PC but does FOV mean field of view?

      • UKINFINITE

        field of view its a standard feature in PC fps games

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        Yes, FoV means Field of View. The acceptable FoV on PC is 80-90.

  • bsktballmsu1

    the question all console players are asking is: what the hell is an FOV

  • WFC Maggs

    I hope they work on it FASTER. I am going back to Black Ops II until an FOV is available. 65 FOV is too flat for me and causes a motion sickness feeling. They might want to add the FOV option to the game BEFORE they ban you for something they previously approved.

    • RdJokr Nguyen

      It’s not that simple. Valve’s Anti-cheat system can be a real pain in the ass sometimes.

      • SmashDog

        Lets hope they will actually unban people who used the Fov changer when they implement the one in the game

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        Actually, IT IS VERY SIMPLE. When it’s in the game, VAC won’t do anything against it. They just have to put a slider that increases the “numbers” and when you hit Apply, it changes the FoV on the console. It is probably one of the easiest things to do. If the slider is at 85 FoV, when you hit Apply, the game introduces the command “cg_fov 85″ on the console. BOOM, done. It’s not rocket science.

        • RdJokr Nguyen

          Actually, I was talking about the people who used 3rd party programs to change FOV. But the banning thing is out of their hands, because VAC loves to give you the banhammer for using just about everything that doesn’t come from the game itself.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Of course. VAC just sees that there is a 3rd party program making the game change (FoV) probably every second, since you notice that when you respawn, you have the default FoV and then the program changes, and since the program doesn’t know if you die or not, it probably is entering the “cg_fov …” command in the console. But IW said that there won’t be any bans for using the Ghosts FoV Changer (not fovely)

  • kack

    how long does it take them to implement one of the most basic features. I don’t see how it would take them longer than 5 minutes. but i digress since i havn’t bought a cod since bo

    • Sal

      It’s not as simple as it looks, because most of the time, the first person animations get broken and they need to mo-cap again. See Bo2.

      • Guest

        That’s a really bad excuse. They should have done it right the first time.

  • Sal
    • SiftBlade

      Nice, good job lol.

    • chris

      love u for that no homo tho

  • MSTAR020

    I can’t wait for the outrage and bad press IW will get when YouTubers that play on PC get banned.

  • Chacho Marice

    puppysmith!!!!

  • JJ

    Why can’t PS4 & Xbone get a FOV changer? Not really a big deal for me just wandering is it only exclusive to PC?

    • Sal

      Because 65 FOV is perfect if you’re far away from the screen. If you increase it, you’ll have difficulty spotting things from far away.

      • Chris Mason

        Plus controller input and aim assist for console players make it an issue too, if I’m not mistaken.

        • Trizay

          I always turn off aim assist in COD games.

      • Trizay

        I have a 24 inch screen that I sit only about 2 feet away from.

  • http://www.callofdutyview.net/ Dragon

    I would like to know what exactly made it so difficult to not have this in the first place? I mean really – what?

    For those who don’t understand the difference FOV makes with peripheral vision here is a screenshot of the same location at the default 65 FOV and another with 90 FOV under it.

    • SiftBlade

      The big difference is in actual gameplay. FOV changes a lot when playing, have you ever played BO2 zombies on PC then tried to play PS3/360? It screws you up, lol.

      • DutyCalls

        I don’t really see any differences, but I’d like my FoV to go at least 90, only because it makes the character you are more accessible to see your arms clearly, not that fat 65 FoV look up on your face which is a lock on consoles. This the also the reasons why I like to play CoD on PC, but sometimes it has issues…

    • T.E.D.

      sniper rifles and HUD placement makes it difficult

      • NuttyTheSquirrel

        No it doesn’t. The HUD is a “picture” or an “effect” on top of your game. It will always stay there, no matter what. You could have an FoV of 200+, the HUD would stay “intact”.

  • Warfranee

    Oh wow i might play ghosts if they add this in

  • Guest

    Amounts of fuck I give is pretty low..

  • Tony Rambo

    3rd party users will be banned???Didn’t an IW employee while asked from twitter that we can use the “Agent-somethiing” FOV??? (Don’t remember the name).I thought it was confirmed that we could use this particular FOV changer??? Damn I’ll never get an IW game game again…so many issues…no fov slider until now…terrible performance even on high end PC’s, no sound adjustments,no fps showing…the list goes on….

    • SmashDog

      The same employee that said it was ok back then,now said its bannable

    • Sal

      VAC was just enabled now on Ghosts PC, and they probably didn’t knew that the new version of VAC wouldn’t discern programs from one another. That’s something you should blame Valve for, not IW.

  • StupidDOGY

    When will you add the damn dedicated server??

    • Sal

      There are but only on a few matches. To know if you’re on one, once you connect, check if the timer starts from 40+ seconds.

      • Michelangelo

        So if u see the timer start at 40 and then the timer goes to like the 15 second mark out of nowhere then that means ur in a dedicated server lobby?

  • Run N Gunning Camper

    Don’t just stop with an FOV changer, I want to see native Eyefinity support.

  • Dunderbutt

    Fovely was available at the day of the fucking release. What’s taking them so long?

  • AcePhoenix007

    God the FOV can be god awful at times. All versions of Ghosts should get an FOV changer.

  • Genocide Joe

    Simple….I just submitted a ticket to cancel my Season Pass and looking for a refund before the maps are released. This game is broken and just getting worse. According to Steam and Activision support, if you ask for a refund BEFORE the game is launched, you are entitled to a refund, and since the map pack for PC has not been released, you qualify. I don’t know about the rest of you, but a ton of refunds might just sway their thinking…

  • Michelangelo

    Didnt PC always get the FOV changer in the past?

    • Izochor

      It it was an IW game no, Treyarch supports pc only.

  • Jari

    Why don’t they just add it to all platforms?

  • Anonymous

    I’ll not play Ghosts until they add this option, I can’t play without a FoV at 90.

    • http://zombielakemusic.moonfruit.com Zombielake Music

      Yes you can :/

  • Izochor

    I made an fov changer in 2 minutes hope the freaking pro IW team can make one in 2 months…. -.-’

  • als

    Well fuck you Infinity Ward. Your COD is a total gameplay and performance wise on the PC.

  • ccrows

    Hey CI, Tina tweeted that the Riot shield and C4 is FINALLY gonna get nerfed.

    You guys have any extra info about that?… :)

  • Ben

    What’s FOV?

  • Rune Løkke

    Stop buying this crap, and eventually they will make decent PC games again. Meanwhile: Titanfall.

  • Hugo Valente

    call of duty franchise for PC is a astronomically fail .

  • Kryten

    What is worse every month I am listing all the blatant hackers and then Emailing them to Activision Support and non of them have been banned but I have to stop using the FOV which makes the game playable or get banned, crazy isn’t it !!! Not whining about good players as many I have reported were on same side as myself and made no attempt to hide the various cheats and for some reason they are so thick they think you can’t find their Steam URL because they are using name changers. Something has to drastically change or this will sadly be the last MW/BO game I buy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jopezsky

    INFINITY WARD SUCKS ! THEY GIVE BANS FOR ME BECAUSE I’M PC PLAYER AND I DIDN’T USE FOV CHANGER !!!!!!!!

  • Kacer

    Losing PC players? Implementing a feature which should be already in MW2? Wow I don’t know why they are still wasting money developing their games on pc. I would be smarter to pump even more paid DLC for xbox and playstation users.
