'Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare' Leading UK's Christmas Charts; Patch 1.06 Causes Problems On Xbox One [VIDEO]By Ernest A, UniversityHerald Reporter
The battle between the best games of 2016 or the best first-person shooter game released in the latter half the year has been a very close one, to say the least. From games like "Overwatch, "Battlefield 1," and other non-shooter games, the triple-A titles that have sat on top of the lists have been diverse.
However, it seems that for most fans and avid gamers alike residing in the UK, "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" has taken the title as the number one game in their Christmas charts. But with its success comes with with it some of its own problems as reports have shown that its patch 1.06 have caused some complications in the Xbox One, according to sources.
It was recently reported that the sales of games monitored during the Christmas week (ending in Dec. 17) in the UK saw "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" sitting at number one, Gamespot has learned. It was stated further that this will mark as the seventh installment of the franchise that has reached the top spot.
The list goes on to detail that "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" has beaten games like "FIFA 17" and even "Battlefield 1," which places second and third on the list, respectively. Moreover, fans can see that "Grand Theft Auto V," despite being released for years now, is still in the top five games in the list.
However, despite the success in sales that "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" has had in the UK, recent reports have indicated that its patch 1.06 have caused some problems in the game's multiplayer feature for the Xbox One, Gamingbolt noted. It was said that since the release of the patch, some Xbox One players have reported that they couldn't connect and play online.
This problem was said to be more prevalent when players tried to play the Zombies in Spaceland mode for "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare." As such, the source went on to mention that Activision has responded to this problem by rolling out an emergency update to resolve this.
