Call of Duty 4 Patch and DLC Details
Robert Bowling (or Fourzerotwo as he’s better known by), Infinity Ward’s community manager, recently chatted about Call of Duty 4, with the discussion getting into what we can expect the patch for the console versions of the game to fix and some details on the upcoming downloadable content.
Most importantly, I think, the patch will enable host migration – that is, when the host leaves a game, the game won’t end and kick you back to your private party screen. Other cool new additions include additional kill cams to everything – grenades, bombs from the plane that was called in for an air strike, etc. – so you’ll be able to watch your demise no matter what killed you.
Snipers and ACOG scopes will become more accurate following numerous complaints from the community that shots weren’t registering. IW looked into it and realized there might indeed be an issue, so that should (hopefully) be working properly once the patch is released.
As for DLC, the majority of the new levels we’ll be seeing are entirely new concepts that were developed post-launch. There are some maps that are derived from the single-player game that didn’t make it for launch, but Bowling assures us that none of it was held back so that it could be later released as DLC.
I’m excited to get back into the game, and depending on when the DLC is released (and how much it costs – two things we don’t know about currently), I might be spending some significant time with CoD4 once again.
