Infinity Ward, the developer of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, has released a new update that makes several tweaks to the game's multiplayer and "Zombies in Spaceland" mode.
The multiplayer shooter, which has been available for the past couple of weeks, has been out long enough for Infinity Ward to study the community and make the necessary changes to improve the player experience.
Here are the changes coming to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare with its first patch.
Changes To Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Multiplayer Mode
The changes included in the patch, for which the patch notes were released by Infinity Ward on the game's subreddit, mostly dealt with the multiplayer mode of the game, starting with score streaks being given to team scores based on where the player is located during Frontline mode.
The Volk also received a nerf in the mode, with the assault rifle's damage range and hip fire accuracy reduced and the recoil when aiming through sights increased.
Rigs are also now properly unlocked when players gain access to any of its rig packages, when previously it was just unlocked upon gaining access to the first one.
A few new playlists have also been added, namely Hardcore Free For All, Hardcore Kill Confirmed and Infected.
Changes To Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's 'Zombies In Spaceland' Mode
In the "Zombies in Spaceland" mode, players will start to see a splash notification when the rank of the weapon they are using is upgraded.
The patch also addresses an exploit that allowed players to increase the ranks of weapons much faster than intended, as well as fixes a problem that ended the game while playing solo if The Hoff is active.

In other related news, the multiplayer shooter is one of the first games to support the technical capabilities of the upgraded PlayStation 4 Pro. Playing Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in 4K mode is "nothing short of immersive and graphically magnificent," showing that Infinity Ward did a great job in making sure that the game will look great on the PlayStation 4 Pro.
It was also recently reported, however, the copies of the game purchased from the Windows Store will not be cross-play compatible with copies purchased on Steam and for the Xbox One. Customers who buy the game from the Windows Store will only be able to play the game with other Windows 10 users, so it will be a better idea for PC players to grab their copy of the game through Steam.
