Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Update Released; Full Patch Notes Listed

Check out the full patch notes in the article below.


Following the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare this past Friday, Infinity Ward released a new patch largely concerned with minor bug fixes. As such, this Day 1 update doesn't make any major changes to the game, though if you're wondering exactly what it does, you can check out the full patch notes below.

Among other things, crashes should be reduced on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. There were also fixes for issues with a pair of challenges (Elite Sniper and Best of the Best). Here's everything changed:

In GameSpot's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare review in progress, Kallie Plagge wrote, "The pitfalls of Spec Ops don't detract from what Modern Warfare does well. Realism mode is an excellent addition to the slate, and although not all the new multiplayer modes are great, Gunfight and the Night Vision playlist are refreshing standouts. And while the campaign ends up playing it safe in the end, it's still a memorable one, and it lays a strong foundation for where the Modern Warfare series could go from here."

Ground War was added to Modern Warfare's queue of multiplayer modes later on Friday. Modern Warfare's largest multiplayer mode was unavailable at first--just like the game's NVG mode, which was removed at launch with an update that also implemented a few bug fixes. Currently, you can only queue into Quick Play, Gunfight, Cyber Attack, Realism, and Private Match.
