One of the most awaited games of the year just got more exciting.
According to a report
in The Next Web, Activision has confirmed that it has partnered with YouTube to let users stream their battles live on the world's most popular video platform.
Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Black Ops II, to be released on November 13th, will have a livestreaming feature that is the result of a partnership with YouTube.
Players will be able to stream their matches directly from their Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles to YouTube. There's no indication that the feature will be available on the PC version.
The release specifies that League Play games will be streamable -- this is a new feature for the Call of Duty series, which has you take part in a few test matches before placing you in a division based on skill for more balanced matchmaking. Once in a division you can work your way up the ladder.
As the report notes, while there have been other services that offer similar facility, a tie-up with YouTube will likely make the feature more mainstream.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II goes on sale 13th November and will vie for the title of 2012's top-selling game with this week's big release Halo 4
