Treyarch has released a new patch for the PlayStation 3 version of billion-dollar shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Patch 1.05, as detailed on CallofDuty.com, improves party reliability and expands the game's capability to open NATs on routers, among other things.
The full list of changes is as follows:
- Improved party reliability when leaving with party – an additional step in an ongoing series of party improvements continued in the next patch.
- Improved UPnP functionality – further expands the game's capability to open NATs on routers with universal plug and play enabled.
- Enabled mute functionality in Playercards in the pre-game lobby.
- Enabled kick functionality in party and private match lobbies.
- Addressed an issue where the pre-game lobby would not always display properly when multiple players leave the lobby after a team split.
- Addressed an issue where the pre-game lobby would appear stuck on the countdown timer while waiting to balance teams.
Since launch angry PS3 owners have complained about connectivity issues with their version of the multiplatform FPS.
This month Treyarch admited there was a problem and pledged to do something about it.
Patch 1.04 promised fixes for plenty of problems - NAT issues and spawn worries among them. The unwelcome reality, however, was the exacerbation of connectivity issues in PS3 online multiplayer.
