Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's live streaming feature will enable players to live stream gameplay on YouTube directly from the Xbox 360 and PS3, Activision has announced.

Players will be able to live stream Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 multiplayer League Play games, as well as the player's webcam and audio commentary while playing.

Elite members can expand their live streaming experience, letting viewers on Elite see the player card of the user that is streaming - offering information on class loadouts, recent match data, as well as career stats across supported Call of Duty games on Elite.

Black Ops 2 live streams will be viewable on YouTube and through Call of Duty Elite.

"From the beginning of development with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, the team has been pushing boundaries on every front to offer Call of Duty fans things that they haven't been able to do before," said Mark Lamia, studio head of Treyarch. "With our competitive play and eSports initiatives, we wanted to deliver live streaming capabilities built right into Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, because Call of Duty is not only fun and exciting to play, but we believe it will be just as exciting to watch. By making the capability of live streaming as accessible as possible to our fans, straight from a player's console without the need for any additional hardware or sophisticated setups, we are empowering our fans to share their multiplayer experiences."

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 launches worldwide on November 13 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. A Wii U version will be released on November 30.
