Today’s Minor PS3 Update For Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Features Small Fixes

By   /   Mar 5, 2015

A minor update has been pushed out for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on the PlayStation 3. According to Sledgehammer Games, the update features slight “connection optimizations and small UI fixes.”

This shouldn’t be confused with the much bigger update that the developer had promised us. That is currently in testing with Sony and is expected to release next week for both the PS3 and PS4. It wouldn’t be surprising if the update was released this very weekend, giving players something new to hit at.

Next week’s update is going to feature a ton of changes, including weapon balances, more Daily Supply Drop Challenges, the addition of fifteen new Prestige Ranks, Scorestreak and Challenges updates, tweaks to UI and more.
