If we take 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as an example, the PC version features a FOV slider but the console version of the game does not. Many players in the community have requested that console players should get their own FOV slider, as the ability to see more of the screen constitutes an added advantage for PC players, which can be important in a cross-play game.
It looks like Activision has been listening, as the next game in the series will allow all players to change the in-game FOV. In the past, the ability to change the FOV in-game was likely left out on console due to potential performance issues. It’s not clear if the extra FOV will have an effect on the FPS in the console versions of Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War. We’ll just have to wait until the game’s launch to find out.Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War launches on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S this November 13. Activision recently confirmed the five modes available in the game’s upcoming Open Beta, which you can check out here.
