Sledgehammer Games has released a new patch for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare today on the PlayStation 4 and PC. The same update was released earlier this week for the Xbox One and Xbox 360, with the PlayStation 3 set to receive the patch soon in the coming days.
The update weighs in just over 2.5 GB and prepares the game for the upcoming new Ascendance downloadable content pack. Alongside that preparation, there are many updates, fixes, and improvements to the game’s weapons, UI, challenges, Scorestreak, and more.
You can go through the patch notes below. In the meanwhile, know that there’s an Easter egg present in the latest Exo Zombies DLC episode which lets you take out the undead with burger bombs. Now you know why the second episode, Infection, takes place around Burger Town.
