Update dropped for Black Ops

Written by David Stellmack


360 & PS3 versions get a number of fixes
Coming through with their promise of additional big fixes and tweaks, Treyarch dropped a Call of Duty: Black Ops update for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game, which the developer says is the first major update of the title since it has been released. The majority of the fixes from what we see are directly targeted at resolving issues around the multiplayer gaming for the most part.

The update does work hard to deal with all of the matchmaking issues, and it should make matchmaking more seamless and generally just work better. The update does take into consideration network speed and conditions, which should help some of the issues of hosts being moved from one to another because the network performance is degraded.

Beyond the fixes of a number of network game issues, apparently a significant amount of work went into fixes for the leaderboards and stat tracking to get it both reporting and working correctly. The weekly and monthly leaderboards should function correctly now.

While PC Black Ops users are still waiting for an update to take care of a number of issues still causing havoc with the PC version of the title, it sounds like this update should really help the console players. Sources suggest that a PC update is coming, as well, but PC players will just have to be patient, as they are working as fast as they can to get it fixed. It does seem like they are on the ball with releasing patches to continue to fix and tweak the game.

In the good old days of PS2, N64, etc. - without online connection - there was no way to update. So game developers had to actually test their shit.

"Beta Testing" - it seems they haven't heard of that at Treyarch & others.

Can anyone honestly tell me if Black Ops is all the worth compared to Modern Warfare on the PC?

I'm waiting for the patches before I consider purchasing this game.

DON'T BUY IT! Compared to Modern Warfare (I *love* that game) it's a huge step back. Graphics is like 5 years back (but still requires state of the art hardware!). Buggy. Uninspired. It's made for todays trigger-happy no-brain kiddies.

* Modern Warfare is from Infinity Ward (awesome developers!)

* Black Ops is from Treyarch (even Indian programmers can do better).

I think this is a better buy than MW2 regardless of the little bug. I'm still eager for BF:BC2 Vietnam nonetheless. The gun in BF:BC2 just felt a little bit better.
