Infinity Ward has released the version 1.6 patch for PC owners of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The biggest highlight of the 1.6 patch for the PC is the addition of the multi-player maps that were previously only available for purchase by owners of the console version of the game. The new maps that were included for free in the 1.6 patch for PC owners include Creek, Chinatown, Broadcast, and Killhouse.
In addition to the new maps, the 1.6 patch fixes various new bugs, as well as all of the changes that were introduced in the 1.5 patch. The server browser now supports the “Hardcore” and “Oldschool” browser filters. A fix to prevent a possible “denial of service” attack has also been added.
The addition of the four maps, that have been available to console owners for some time, is a welcomed addition to COD 4 on the PC. Of course, the better part of this is that they are giving the maps to the COD 4 community on the PC for free, rather than charging for them as they did on the console version of the game. While the focus of the 1.6 patch is clearly on the new maps, it does help continue the interest in COD 4 on the PC platform. No word yet whether the 1.6 patch will be the last patch for the PC version of the game.
