Black Ops 2 1.02 patch a mystery on PS3

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.

The 1.02 patch for PS3 includes the Multiplayer map ‘Turbine’. Sadly though, it also ruins the graphics for the game, making everything blurry and low quality. Its really bad. If you delete the patch data (242mb approx) from your PS3 menu, boot the game and DO NOT update to 1.02, then start a local game with bots, you will see the graphics as they are truly meant to be, which are very sharp and high quality. Since 1.02 was out straight away at launch most of us would have updated, and never seen what the graphics were meant to look… Read more »

This game keeps freezing even after update, I would of thought the developers prepared for world launch…instead they wait until players start complaining. Why?

I nickname my assault class “ass” and before the update I was able to rename it to that. However, after the update when I tried to make a second class and rename it to “ass 2” it wouldn’t allow me to stating that I couldn’t rename it to that cause of profanity.

I got the hardened edition today (PS3). I had several issues with navigating the multiplayer menus being slow and it taking ages to load up my emblem. Once or twice it said connection interrupted while I was playing a match and at one stage it said that the servers were unavailable. I managed to reconnect to the servers about 10 minutes later. Apart from that the game is fine. It is very different from MW3, as expected. It feels just like the original Black Ops and I am enjoying it so far. I am level 11 and I have a… Read more »
