Call of Duty 4 Xbox 360 Patch Released Today – New Kill Cams and Host Migration

Call of Duty 4 Xbox LiveYou can now download via auto-update, the new patch for the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty 4, which includes a fair few features, with the most important I believe, Host Migration.

If you have been in a game and the host leaves half way through (very annoying!), it will now switch to someone else, although the map restarts and changes, so not perfect, but at least you stay with your chums. Surprised this wasn’t a feature when the game first released, but hey at least it is here now much to my and I am sure other peoples relief.

Other features include new kill cams that show off claymore, air strike and grenade kills. Just the remedy for making you feel even worse after being killed by someone who has cheesed a lovely grenade randomly into your position hey, but still this is great fun and a good addition.

Sniper accuracy has been improved, although I never use the darn things. I am more your run around firing at close range type of chap. I like to see the enemies face, oh yes. Another option is when in spectator mode, you can view from a third person perspective. Oh and maybe the most important of all, there is a nice Infinity Ward logo when the map is loading.

    Scweeet… Just logged on and downloaded the update :) Still hasn’t helped me find a match better yet… think that’s due to my connection sucking though. Seems to “bog down” when searching for matches some times…

    Something I wish they would add though… MORE customer class slots!!!!! I mean, c’mon, I have a hard drive… why can’t I just make an unlimited number of custom classes???

    :)

  • hopefully they will do the same with the ps3 version soon.
