Call of Duty Modern Warfare gamers are reporting the release of update 1.06 today on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The new COD patch has been confirmed as weighing in at less than 8GB on all platforms, making it small in comparison to the Day One patch released by Infinity Ward.
Full patch notes are yet to be revealed for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 1.06 and it’s currently unclear what might have been changed, although players are confirming that Kill Confirmed is back as a gameplay option.
Some fans are also reporting longer than expected wait times for the patch to copy over, however, this doesn’t appear to be a bug affecting everyone.
It should be noted that the official patch notes page on Reddit has yet to be updated with new information on today’s Call of Duty update.
However, Community Managers for the game have been warning that more updates would be released this week to help combat ongoing problems.
“Fixes are currently being worked on by numerous teams between IW and Beenox. We have a few updates we’re working on that should improve the stability and help prevent against crashes or any other issue you may encounter,” a message from the Activision support team explains.
“It’s always helpful to let us know details of what’s happening when you encounter any bug or crash as it can help us prioritize and debug issues as they come in.”
Another adds: “We have a few updates going out over the next few days. I don’t want to give an exact time and date as we’re wrapping up testing on a few more things.”
It was only a few days ago that Infinity Ward attempted to launch Modern Warfare Trials, before shutting down the feature. So there could be an update soon on what’s happening to refine Trials in the future.
Here’s How Trials Work:
Once you’re in Officer Ranks, you’ll earn tickets you can use to compete in Trials. Already in Officer Ranks? You’ll get access to tickets you already earned.
One ticket is needed to take part in a Trial and one ticket grants you three tries during COD Modern Warfare gameplay. Based on your performance, you’ll be given a 1, 2, or 3-star rating.
Each star rating grants XP rewards:
- 0 Stars: 0 XP
- 1 Star: 5000 XP
- 2 Stars: 7500 XP
- 3 Stars: 10000 XP
Infinity Ward is expected to share news on today’s COD update, although it’s unclear if it will be in the coming hours or after the weekend.
It follows news this week that Modern Warfare had more than $600 million in sell-through worldwide in its first three days of release.
This means that the latest Call of Duty game has sold more units in its first three days than any other Call of Duty game sold in this console generation, and is also the top-selling new premium game release of 2019.
Modern Warfare has also set new records on the PlayStation Network for the highest digital pre-orders and highest three-day digital sales ever on PlayStation 4, a console that is one of the most successful ever launched.
“Through the first three days, Modern Warfare has more total players and total hours played than any Call of Duty opening release in the last six years. More importantly, our players are having a great time playing,” said Rob Kostich, president, Activision.
“Congratulations to Infinity Ward and all our teams involved on an incredible game and its spectacular launch. We also want to thank the community for your incredible support. The launch of Modern Warfare is only the start. There’s much more to come.”
But even with this early sales success, Infinity Ward knows that more work will be needed to bring the game up to scratch and remove the more annoying bugs.
