COD4 Feature Patch off to MS for Certification
A patch to add features to the most-played game on Live has been handed off to Microsoft by the folks at Infinity Ward, and as soon as Microsoft's quality assurance demons do their jobs, our 360's will be full of auto-updating joy. The patch info was given out by Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward Community Relations Manager, and from what he revealed we'll be enjoying a bunch of interesting new stuff.
The main features include the following: new kill cams allowing you to see that guy who destroyed you more often than before. Better host control, now the host will be able to leave the game without wrecking everything for everyone else who's left behind, the host will just change instead. Sniper scopes and ACOG scopes have been tweaked to have them to be easier to use, making them more fluid and natural. Last of the major additions, there will now be a quick mute option similar to Halo 3's, just select a player on the scoreboard screen or lobby, and you'll be able to mute them right then and there.
These changes all seem to be for the best (though we'll see how the sniper balance plays out) and we can't wait for the patch to go live, even if it does make us pine for another auto-update as well.
