A new Black Ops 3 patch has come out on the Xbox One and Playstation 4, as a 2.9 gigabyte update that adds numerous balance changes and fixes to multiplayer, along with adding the fourth DLC, Salvation, to the in-game store and multiple fixes for the game’s zombie mode that fixed a number of glitches.
To start off with, the new Black Ops 3 patch has made improvements in stability and network performance, which includes fixing errors that contributed to hitching, streamlining texture loading during matches to improve streaming performance, and adding additional logging to help with debugging efforts.
When it comes to the Zombies modes, the new Black Ops 3 patch has apparently focused the most on them. In general, the patch fixed a bug that would cause players to drop into zombie mode with a blank, white screen, fixing a bug that caused a promotional banner to stretch across a screen in the “Doctor Monty’s Factory” map, and fixing GobbleGums from the first DLC to work properly for players that bought the game’s gold edition.
When it comes to Revelations, the Call of Duty Zombies map that came packaged in with the Salvation DLC, a lot of fixes have been implemented there as well.
With the new Black Ops 3 patch, Treyarch has improved the stability of splitscreen matches, and also addressed a bug that might cause a fatal error at high-number rounds.
Other fixes include fixing a fatal error associated with the Lightning Dark Arena challenge, fixing an issue where players couldn’t interact with the Keeper Protector Altar, resolved issues where people would die when standing in certain places on the map, fixing low-gravity exploits in the Undercroft, and fixing an issue with being unable to pick up a key while a Pack-A-Punched weapon is equipped.
Hopefully all of these fixes in the new Black Ops 3 patch will have fixed the more glaring issues, and not caused any new ones.
