As many would have expected, it has today been confirmed that the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops, will ship in both retail and digital form making full use of Valve’s Steamworks services. This will mean the game will utilise Steams auto-updating facility, as well as featuring Steam achievements and allowing you to access saved games anywhere by way of the Steam cloud.
“We are delighted to be delivering the years most anticipated title with Black Ops to PC gamers around the world”, said Jason Holtman, director of business development at Valve. “We’ve collaborated with the development team to leverage the Steamworks suite of services to deliver the highest level of service to Call of Duty: Black Ops PC customers.”
“Steam has been a great partner throughout development of Black Ops, said Mark Lamia, president of Treyarch. We’re working closely together to take full advantage of Steamworks to ensure we deliver the most polished and secure PC experience that our community deserves.”
