'Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare' Receives Patch Fixes; PC & Xbox One-Specific Updates Detailed! [VIDEO]By Ernest A, UniversityHerald Reporter
It is a rare sight to see a polished game that was launched with no problems whatsoever right off the bat. However, both critics and fans alike are well aware that most games being released nowadays will most likely come out with some issues and bugs, initially. Such is the case for the recently released triple-A title, "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare." Albeit receiving a fair amount of positive reviews, the game seems to be plagued with some issues on both the PC and Xbox One platforms.
It was recently reported that "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" just received an update for all three platforms, namely the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Gamespot has learned. With this patch, the game will be receiving a lot more multiplayer bug fixes and gameplay improvements, rather than the expected newly added content.
The source also mentioned that twelve maps were updated, wherein it was noted that their exploits have already been blocked by the latest patch. Also, there have been some corrections made in addressing the inaccurate win/loss awards that players have received.
It was also worth noting that the latest patch for "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" looked into balancing the game's weaponry by giving the P-Law launcher a buff, which allows players to one-shot UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) and counter-UAVs.
Gamespot also stated that there were fixes that were specific for both the PC and Xbox One, which basically fixed a myriad of issues found in multiplayer. The patch for the Xbox One addresses some features in the game, such as muting players via "View Gamecard" option and players getting kicked from SnD if the controller got disconnected.
As for the PC, the issues addressed seems to focus on the minor features found in multiplayer, such as players having longer usernames exceeding the boundaries of the match loading screen, and stuttering that was caused by special characters in a username.
With all these said, it seems that Activision and Infinity Ward are focusing on polishing "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" even further.
