Modern Warfare 3 Preseason Patch Notes Out Now

Not all of the changes have been released yet as per "unforeseen issues."

Story Highlights

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is the next step in line for the long-running COD franchise.
  • The game has been met with negative reviews on launch for various reasons. 
  • Sledgehammer Games has outed a new patch for the game, bringing multiple adjustments. 

Developer Sledgehammer Games is now rolling out a new patch for its latest Call of Duty game, specifically for season 6 of the in-game multiplayer content. From stability and performance of both the multiplayer and campaign portions of the game to UI- and progression-centric adjustments, this preseason patch aims to better the overall Modern Warfare 3 experience. 

That said, you may want to hold out on your particular platform for the latest changes since the devs couldn’t push all of them out as of late. Addressing the audience in the patch notes, it’s been said that some adjustments mentioned in the details of the update may not reflect on your end due to unanticipated hurdles blocking the completion of the patch’s release.  

Due to unforeseen issues, not all of the changes scheduled for today’s update were able to be released. Our teams are hard at work to get key movement changes, Multiplayer weapon balancing, Zombies gameplay and stability fixes, and more into the next available update.” 

For what it brings to the table in general, though, expect a myriad of performance fixes, balance changes, and bug fixes spanning gameplay, user interface, weapons, challenges, cosmetics, and Zombies as well. Furthermore, the preseason patch focuses on enhancing the COD HQ application—a program responsible for launching various variants of Call of Duty and their respective in-game modes.

On a side note, though, Modern Warfare 3 hasn’t had the best of releases by far, with the game getting panned by fans and critics for being a copy-paste of the previous Modern Warfare iteration — and a bad one at that — with a brand-spanking-new $70 price tag. Despite all that, the first-person shooter has somehow side-stepped its poor reception and still managed to earn the top spot on the UK boxed charts.
