The latest installment in the Call of Duty series, Call of Duty Ghosts did not get a really smooth launch when it released on November 5. The PC community has been raising voices against numerous issues which require an immediate patch. Infinity Ward has just released a 200MB update to the game but surprisingly, it doesn’t change much in the game.
A number of complaints have been in the air since Call of Duty: Ghosts released a couple of days ago, the most prominent one being a restriction on the field of view.
Unlike Black Ops 2, Ghosts didn’t let players adjust the FoV, a third party unofficial fix named “Fovely” was released to unlock the feature.
Parallel to this, a lot of players have been complaining about the nasty RAM requirement which doesn’t let you install the game unless you have 6GB of RAM. There have been reports of screen freezes, lags and low frame rates among others too.
So far the developer has not shared any patch notes so it will be tough to specify what the 200MB is being used to change in the game, but user comments from Reddit suggest it has only made things bad for the PC gamers.
Apparently, nothing of worth has been fixed through the update instead the dear old Fovely FoV Unlocker has been patched up which means users can not use it any more.
Though this might not have been a deliberate step because updates change the memory automatically disabling features like the third party fix.
What we expected from the patch was to at least sort things out to some extent, but maybe we will have to wait for a word from Infinity Ward to confirm what exactly has changed and what we could expect to be fixed.
