Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is out, trying to recapture the lightning of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. And now we have the 1.05 patch!
The patch notes were posted on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare‘s dedicated Reddit board. The patch notes may not seem like much, but this baby will weigh 8 GB. For console players, it will only take 2 GB. I guess it’s easier to stabilize the game when you don’t have to account for an absolutely infinite combination of parts that a modern PC can be cobbled together from.
Here are the full patch notes:
We’ve done work on the backend to help with stability and prevent crashes across all platforms. If you experience a crash, please let us know
Fix for a Special Ops Achievement that was not unlocking after completing all missions
3rd person footsteps are now silent while the Dead Silence Field Upgrade is active
Hardpoint: Adjustments to the hill rotations and locations on Arklov Peak, Azhir Cave, Hackney Yard, Rammaza, and St. Petrograd
Modern performance issues
Are crashes a problem in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare? Yes, since similar wording was included in one of the October 25 updates. The other changes seem somewhat minor, though missing a stealth aspect of a darn stealth upgrade feels like a rookie mistake.
Then again, there’s no word on improving the cutscene stutter. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players reported their systems running the game well except for prerendered cutscenes, typically a game aspect you’d expect to be the least impacted by hardware performance.
In any case, the patch’s large size isn’t surprising considering Modern Warfare is 175 GB to install. However, stability issues and weird cutscene stutter aside, the game seems to be technically sound, showing good performance on PCs that have lost some of their edge over the years. You can read a more in-depth dive into the details in our technical review.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is out now. It will have a battle pass to unlock cosmetic goodies and “a la carte” DLC instead of a season pass, but no loot boxes!
