Black Ops II Engine Upgrades Include “More Destruction,” Better Lighting and Richer Details

Treyarch’s director of online Dan Bunting goes through some of the engine upgrades Call of Duty fans can expect in Black Ops II, including better lighting techniques, more detailed environments and “more destruction.”

The story is too old to be commented.

They should just license frostbyte 2 for the next game. I know it'd be like sleeping with the enemy or something but it's a superior engine.

They could very likely even reuse many of their art and sound assets with little trouble. Making gameplay the same is only a matter of tweaking physics and motion.

EA doesn't license Frostbite 2 outside of EA studios.

Aww that's sad, it's too bad that in order to remain competitive all the big business have to remain very walled off from each other. Sharing resources could lead to very quick progress, technology wise.

There's other options that are on par with Frostbite 2 that are widely available. Namely Unreal 3 and Cryengine 3

I agree with Cryengine. That is a fantastic engine!

I believe it when I see it!

Last time I checked Black Ops did worse graphics than mw2.
meanwhile MW3 was almost the same as mw2...

I will still look into Black Ops 2, but Im not sure what to think of any more... is it a good or a bad thing..

If it's not up to par or better Frostbite, then it's not worth mentioning. Treyarch is setting themselves up for failure.

So glass will shatter even better? That's the only destruction in COD lol.
