New Call of Duty Advanced Warfare update goes live on PC and PS4, Xbox One version still pending

The new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare update announced by developed Sledgehammer Games a couple of days ago is now up and running. While the update is live only on the PC and PS4 at the moment, Xbox One owners can rest assured because it should reach them as well any minute now. Sledgehammer included the usual assortment of bug fixes in this update, as well as fixes for some of the connectivity issues reported by users. The update also brings a few changes to Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, although we’re not looking at anything major. The full patch notes can be found below.

  • Adjustment to the in-game chat names notifications placement.

  • Connectivity optimizations for game servers.
  • Fixed issues with Ping Bar not updating correctly.
  • Fixed stats not accumulating towards leaderboards after Prestiging.
  • Adjustment to challenges to unlock camos for weapons.
  • Fixed round-based game modes, affecting Win/Loss ratios.

  • Added description to reload informing that you can double-tap to speed reload.
  • Fixed DoubleXP splash, so it doesn’t show up in Private Match, Combat Readiness Program, or Exo Survival mode.

Sledgehammer says that this patch will also make it to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. A specific release date has not been given, but the developer did mention the traditional “soon” time frame. Although not perfect, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare launched in a much better state than many of the other new releases we’ve had this month, especially better than the bug riddled Assassin’s Creed Unity.
