Activision has released the much-anticipated update to the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty 2. The patch addresses issues with the game's multiplayer mode, specifically the performance of the online portion.

The game's developer, Infinity Ward, has also added the ability to save spots for friends in private games, added new host options, and more. The update will be automatically downloaded when gamers log onto Xbox Live with Call of Duty 2.

Owners of the PC version will also be getting some reinforcements, Activision announced. PunkBuster's anticheat technology will be added to the game, as well as two new multiplayer maps, the all-new Rhine and Harbor, a remake of a map featured in the original Call of Duty.

Call of Duty 2 is rated M for Mature and retails for $49.99 on the PC and $59.99 on the Xbox 360. For more information on the game, head over to GameSpot's full review.
