Call of Duty 4 Gets Important 360 Patch


Calling all 360 owners! The highly anticipated patch for CoD 4 is available for download. The update cures a number of problems in order to enhance the already stellar experience. Changes include requirements of larger bandwidth for 18 player matches, new spawn points, new kill cams, host migration, increased sniper accuracy, and additional spectator views. Players will be prompted to download the update when they sign in to Xbox Live.

A couple of important side notes: The host migration fix will keep all the players together, but it will still end the game and bring you to the lobby. There is no word exactly when the PS3 patch will be released, but the team at Infinity Ward says it is nearly ready. Press data to follow:

Addition of Host Migration

If Host of lobby leaves, all players will be deposited back to the lobby where next best host will be selected before new game restarts. Players will no longer be kicked out of game entirely.
