MW3: Patch 1.08 live, BF3 compared again
A few days ago we spoke about Patch 1.08 and how it aims to neutralize glitches; however, we did mention the moment some issues are resolved others seem to pop up, will this be the case this time round? Well, we will soon find out, as the Modern Warfare 3 patch 1.08 is live.
Currently the patch is only available for the Xbox 360 but Infinity Ward has said the PC and PS3 versions will follow shortly. The reason for the small delay is due to exclusive updates for Sony’s console. According to this article the patch offers theater fixes, improved lag comp, nerf to Striker and faster uploads to YouTube.
The new patch for the Xbox 360 requires 5MB of memory and is perfect timing, as the new DLC has just been made available for download for the Xbox 360. We still await the full patch notes for 1.08. Speaking of new downloadable content, Robert Bowling from Infinity Ward has been talking about the possibility of adding, “weapon DLC, gun drops” to MW3, but as yet is unable to confirm this will happen.
If this happens in the future then what other weapons would you like to see come to Modern Warfare 3? It will be interesting to see when the developer will be able to squeeze this in because looking at the season of content, the calendar looks pretty busy.
By now you would have thought reviewers would have stopped comparing MW3 with BF3, but it seems as though the battle is far from over. Having said that, both games are different from when they were first launched; well Battlefield 3 is, as it received an update long before the latest Call of Duty game did. What we found interesting about this article is how it looks at 6 key features and chooses a winner for each.
The result was a draw, as they believe MW3 had a better Story, Co-op and Extras. However, BF3 was able to redeem itself by having better Sound/Visuals, Multiplayer and Achievements. This is just one person’s review but would you agree with these results?
On a final note regarding Modern Warfare 3, Bowling has been answering questions regarding the Prestige token glitch, which was recently patched. He has said they now have the technology to track people who gain from this glitch and will work hard to stop hackers from spoiling the game for others. MW3 may not be perfect to some, but this is a step in the right direction.
