A patch has been released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 renditions of Call of Duty: Black Ops as developer Treyarch looks to rectify a number of glitches that have marred the title’s otherwise hugely successful release.
"Xbox 360 and PS3 #CODBlackOps Updates are LIVE. Be sure to check your platform's respective Sticky post on the forums," Tweeted Treyarch community manager Josh Olin to alert Black Ops’ millions of adopters to the available fixes.
Having taken a reported $650 million in its opening five days to secure the title of the most successful game ever in terms of opening week sales, a number of Call of Duty: Black Ops users have reported issues with online leaderboards and matchmaking features.
This new patch will allow gamers to accurately track kills, deaths and assists as well as adding some new anally-accurate fine tuning of audio levels with footsteps and gunfire having come under the developer’s meticulous eye and ear.
Whilst the release patches cover only PS3 and Xbox 360 issues, Treyarch has announced updates for the Nintendo Wii version of the game will be inbound within the coming weeks. "Thank you for helping us to identify the various connectivity issues you have been experiencing," read an announcement on the CoD forums. "We have fixed many of the problems you have reported and are currently testing those fixes in anticipation of releasing an update."
