If you picked up a copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 today you might have seen an update right away, which we found on our PS3 copy and it asked us to install patch 1.02. It is normal to see games receive updates at launch, and Black Ops 2 is no different although some people are wondering what patch 1.02 is for? There have been a number of guesses so far, but nothing official has been confirmed at the time of writing.
Taking a guess at COD Black Ops 2 patch 1.02 – the consensus is that this update is for activating online play, which would not need to go live until the Black Ops 2 release date, so anyone receiving an early copy shouldn’t be able to access multiplayer. There had been a few rumors in forums that certain countries had access to online play before the launch date, so if you were in one of those countries feel free to leave a comment below this article. There are also a number of other ideas being thrown around for Black Ops 2 patch 1.02, which include changes to trophies and a reset of stats, although we cannot confirm any of these so if you know more feel free to comment.
We just took a couple of screenshots from our copy of COD Black Ops 2, and above you can see a screen with the zombie bus and below you’ll see another image from the same zombies map. This page also contains a screenshot from within the zombie bus, and also our Black Ops 2 Hardened Edition in-hand with a quick look at the extras. You can read about the Nuketown DLC in our article from earlier today, which might not be so exclusive after all.
Did you see the Black Ops 2 1.02 patch after starting up your PS3? If we find out about any fixes this update includes, then we’ll let you know, also if you have found any problems with Black Ops 2 then share them in the comments. Currently we’ve only played the game for a couple of hours, and we’ve had a few connection issues with online play but other than that everything looks great.
