Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s “Biggest Update Yet” Targets Connectivity Issues And Map Exploits


Sledgehammer Games has detailed the latest title update for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which has been described as the biggest one to date.

The studio made the announcement early this morning, confirming that the patch is already available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with plans to deploy the update on other platforms soon.

This week we’re rolling out our biggest title update yet with a ton of exciting enhancements for Advanced Warfare coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions, with similar changes coming to the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 soon.

We’ve included weapon balancing tweaks, fixes and improvements for emblems, improvements within the Player Lobby (including a new way to view your Armory), map exploit fixes, spawn improvements, connectivity optimizations, improvements to our anti-cheat measures, and even more.

Given that Advanced Warfare has been out in the ether for little over a month now, Sledgehammer revealed that the developing team have been keeping a close eye on the status of the game’s servers and, specifically, the ways in which players connect to them. Those early adopters will attest to the shooter’s connectivity issues, which often led to long waits to find matches or kicking you out of the lobby altogether just as the action was set to get going.

The full, comprehensive list of fixes can be found on the studio’s official page, which is also divided on a platform by platform basis.

Looking to the future of the shooter, though, and it’s understood that Sledgehammer plans to introduce the game’s Zombies Mode in January via the Havoc DLC pack. As always, this pack will contain a set of new multiplayer maps along with the survival-based mode, which will up the ante by equipping the undead with exoskeletons to match your own.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is available now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
