Black Ops 2 Gets Patched On The PC With Matchmaking Improvements
Players of Black Ops 2 on the PC, your would-be gods at Treyarch have not abandoned you. This weekend, the studio has announced a free Steam weekend to coincide with a patch for the game’s multiplayer client.
The multiplayer patch adds improvements to the matchmaking system and the ability to search for games based on ping. As it existed prior to the patch, players had no ability to determine whether they could opt out from joining high latency servers, leading to one-sided matchups against players with bad connections.
Players who have yet to take the plunge with Black Ops 2 will have a chance to try out the new systems for free as the game becomes available for free over the weekend on Steam. From now until Sunday, the multiplayer portion of Black Ops 2 is available for download. Additionally, players hooked on the game can purchase it at a 33% discount, which is more than what Activision is usually wiling to offer.
The patch comes ahead of next week’s release of the Revolution DLC for the PC which adds some new maps. It’s been available on the console for over a month now.
