In a move to regain the trust of the PC gaming community, Treyarch has expressed an interest in dedicated servers for Call of Duty: Black Ops, and most recently announced that the game will be opened up to modding. Infinity Ward disappointed PC gamers when it launched Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 without dedicated servers or mod tools. Treyarch is making a concerted effort to correct that mistake.

Speaking on the Call of Duty: Black Ops Community Forums, a Treyarch developer posting as "pcdev" made the official announcement. Exactly when and to what extent modding will be available is still unclear, but it is something the developer plans to focus on post-launch.

"There are some purely technical issues related to engine and internal tool enhancements that do not easily fit the modtools paradigm," pcdev wrote. "We have looked at it close enough to see that it is non-trivial and we will have to pick it up again post-launch. Right now we are completely focused on finishing the game. And, dev console: confirmed."

Though dedicated servers have not been officially announced, Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia has made it clear it's something he wants.

"I think dedicated servers are excellent. I don't see any reason not to use them unless... well, I just don't see any reason not to. We're working very hard... so people can run dedicated servers and also participate in the communal experience the console players get to have, given they're all on first-party servers."

Call of Duty: Black Ops is set to hit store shelves on November 9.

Neowin.net News : Special editions of Modern Warfare 2 revealed

Infinity Ward have revealed the special edition packages for its upcoming game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which has become one of the most popular multi platform franchises this generation.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is being released later this year during the month of November, and as has been revealed, will be releasing in multiple editions each coming with its own set of goodies.

The first special edition that was revealed was the "Prestige" edition which will come in a rather large box holding more than a couple of items. The biggest surprise is the inclusion of night vision goggles that are apparently in full working condition, which can be displayed on a full head model included in the games box.

Also included in the "Prestige" edition is an art book full of game concept art and the game comes in a tin case, much like many other collectors editions.
Rumoured many months ago, a code will also be included that lets you download the original Call of Duty on either Microsoft's XBLA or Sony's PSN.

There will also be a "Hardened" edition of the game that will be released at the same time, it includes the game in a steal tin, the art book and also the download code for the original game.
Prices have been released for both packages, the "Prestige" edition will retail for $149.99 and "Hardened" will be far cheaper but without the goggles for $80.

It is also currently unknown if download of Call of Duty will be available at the launch of Modern Warfare 2 and at what price, or if it will become available at all to the general public, but it is most likely to appear over the coming months after release.
