Another Black Ops Multiplayer Patch Rolls Out For PS3

If you’re a Black Ops PS3 player, then chances are you’ve had it up to your neck with party issues and loud mouths in the lobby. Treyarch has heard the call and released yet another multiplayer patch – 1.05 to be exact – to fix all these little issues that are making you rageface.

Yesterday at about 5 AM Treyarch released a patch that fixes numerous party issues and tweaked many gameplay aspects such as improved party reliability, mute functionality in pre-game lobbies, and kick functionality in party and private match lobbies.

Treyarch continues to work harder to improve party reliability, but in the meantime just watch out who you become friends with online. Future patches supposedly will fix the “infinite loading screen” issue and a rare game-freezing scenario that can be triggered by “explosions occurring simultaneously in a concentrated area.”

Here are a full list of fixes included in the 1.05 patch:

  • Improved party reliability when leaving with party — an additional step in an ongoing series of party improvements continued in the next patch
  • Improved UPnP functionality — further expands the game’s capability to open NATs on routers with universal plug and play enabled
  • Enabled mute functionality in Playercards in the pre-game lobby
  • Enabled kick functionality in party and private match lobbies
  • Addressed an issue where the pre-game lobby would not always display properly when multiple players leave the lobby after a team split
  • Addressed an issue where the pre-game lobby would appear stuck on the countdown timer while waiting to balance teams

In Progress

  • Addressing a freeze that would occur in rare situations involving a combination of high player counts and many killstreaks / explosions occurring simultaneously in a concentrated area
  • Further improvements to party reliability to address an issue where mixed NAT types connecting and disconnecting can cause players to drop in some situations
  • Investigating “infinite loading screen” issue reported by some users
