Call of Duty Black Ops PC using Steam; system requirements leaked?

While Call of Duty: Black Ops has yet to show up for pre-orders on Steam as of the time of this post, the next game in Activision's first person shooter series is confirmed as not only coming to Valve's PC game download service but it will also be using Valve's Steamworks tools as well.

In a post on Call of Duty Black Ops' official message boards, developer Treyarch goes over the PC multiplayer features of the game and states, "Millions of Call of Duty fans are already on Steam. Their Friends are on Steam. Steam will provide the ease of auto-updating instead of manual patching." The PC port will also use Valve's Anti-Cheat system as well as the Steam Cloud for save games. As previously reported, the PC version will also have support for dedicated servers but PC players will have to purchase those servers from a third party rather than set them up themselves.

In related news the Direct2Drive PC game download site has set up a preliminary page to purchase Call of Duty: Black Ops. While you can't yet buy the game the page does show what the PC version's minimal system requirements will be. You can check them out after the jump:
  • OS: Windows® Vista / XP / 7
