Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Patch To Offer Connectivity Optimizations, Fixes And More

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare developer Sledgehammer Games has announced that it is currently working on an update for the FPS game. The incoming update will make some changes that are based on feedback from the player community and will add bug fixes, optimize connectivity, address certain issues, and polish several things ingame.

“Our team has been working hard on improvements to the game,” said Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey in a post on the developer’s website. “We’ve also had our ears to the ground, listening to your feedback. Our commitment to continuing to support the game and community is as strong as ever, and we have the whole team focused on making the experience the best it can be.”

According to Condrey, the update will focus on the following issues:
  •  Prestige reset issues, including emblems and challenges.
  •  Adjustment to the in-game chat names notifications placement.
  •  Fix for weapon reloads counting as speed reloads in certain circumstances.
  •  Connectivity optimizations.
  •  Fix for stats accumulating towards leaderboards after prestiging.
  •  Adjustment to challenges to unlock Camos for weapons.
  •  Fix for round-based game modes, affecting Win/Loss ratios.
  •  Implemented ability to unlock eSports Rule options in Private Match.

There is also the issue of dedicated servers that, prior to the game’s launch, the developer had promised to support. Condrey had gone on record to say that fans of the game would hear an announcement soon. However, in the same post about the update, Condrey inserted a statement from Activision regarding dedicated servers that states, “Advanced Warfare employs game servers hosted at data centers globally on all platforms and listen servers as part of our proprietary matchmaking system. Our goal is to ensure the best possible connection and greatest gameplay experience regardless of location and time of day.”

No date was provided as to when the update will be available for download.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launched on November 3 for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC platforms.
