If you switched on your PS3 or Xbox 360 recently and played Call of Duty: Black Ops you may have recently noticed that a new patch had been rolled out – well we thought some of you would appreciate some information regarding this update, also it is worth knowing that the patches for the different platforms do differ slightly so pay attention.
Let’s start with some changes which have been brought to both PS3 and Xbox 360, firstly if a player quits during a live match their win streak will now break (which is bad news for dashboarders, you know who you are!) Also Treyarch has updated the list of prohibited clan tags for obvious reasons, as always there are some security issues which have been fixed and we can confirm that one of the exploits allowed someone to copy another player’s emblem/playercard.
Some people may have also noticed that prior to this update Custom Private Match settings would carry over to Public matches and sometimes recent games would not show the correct heatmap – both of these issues have been rectified. Finally players in parties can no longer go into party-restricted lobbies.
The PS3 version of the game also received a few extra changes, firstly the zombie invite system has been fixed, also the game has been prepared for the Rezurrection DLC (see when it launches here) – finally it is now easier to choose from your unlocked clan tag colors (use X / O to do this).
It is nice to see that Treyarch’s dev team is looking after consumers by releasing frequent patches for a game which will soon be succeeded by Modern Warfare 3 – while you’re here we would love to hear how impressed / unimpressed you are by the frequent updates Treyarch has rolled out for Black Ops, also are there any further issues you would like to see addressed?
