I haven’t been feeling all that well this week *koff* *hack* *sneeze* – excuse me. But I figured I had to get on here and post some updates for Call of Duty MW3. There is a big patch coming and we will finally get Face Off. I don’t have word yet on when PS3 players will be getting Map Collection 2 yet though. I’m thinking the last week in June? Read on for the latest patch notes and Face Off coming to PS3 June 14th! (Update: Bah – hate when I get the dates wrong!)
Continuing the technical support for Modern Warfare 3, Infinity Ward have published the fix list for the latest round of patches. Patch 1.13 for the PC is already live, while Patch 1.15 for the PS3 is scheduled to go live on June 14th, the same day we will be able to get the rest of Collection 2 and Face Off.
Read below for the official Patch notes:
PC Patch 1.13
Fix for mismatching files error between DLC and Non-DLC owners
PS3 Patch 1.15
- 400 new ranks included in 5 new prestige levels
- Dead Man’s Hand reduce explosive radius
- Dragunov rebalance
- Fixed DS/SRP issue with Specialist class
- Blast Shield Buff in hardcore modes
- Fixed an issue where some “Defense” kills were not incrementing on the leaderboard
- Fix for rapid fire glitch
- Increased damage reduction for Blast Shield in Hardcore modes
- Fix for Kill Confirmed, update the player score before updating the team score
- Competition Mode added to System Link
A lot of additions for the PS3 Patch, the most noticeable addition being the 400 new ranks the game will get. This means of course we have 20 Prestiges to get to instead of the original 10. Well… means I get to spend even more time on the sticks to try and reach it!
You can read more about the new Game Mode Face Off here on avgjoegeek.net! This new mode is for 1 vs. 1, 2 vs. 2, and 3 vs. 3 on very small maps. Read about the two free maps ALL PS3 players will be able to download for free below!
And with the release of Map Collection 2 already out for Xbox – we know PS3 players will be getting two more Face Off maps as well! You can read about it here for more info.
Free Maps Erosion and Aground
Two new free maps? These are to introduce the new game mode Face Off of course! This is of course just to whet your appetite as Collection 2 is coming right around the corner. Just in time for the kiddies to get out of school! But what makes them “Free” – You don’t need to have an ELITE Premium account to get them!
Make your way through Mediterranean ruins and ancient aqueducts, using leftover Roman masonry for thousand-year-old cover in this new “Face Off” map.
Head to Scotland’s Orkney Islands for the latest “Face Off” map, where treacherous cliff faces, networks of caves and the rusted and ruined remains of a grounded transport ship provide for constant combat.
