Call of Duty Modern Warfare update 1.03: Patch Notes for PS4 and Xbox and servers go live | Gaming | Entertainment


The Day One patch has become a thing that gamers can expect when a new AAA title launches in 2019.

And today’s Modern Warfare update will be waiting for those who are hoping to play after servers go live.

This new patch was announced by Infinity Ward several hours ago and has been available to download for those with early copies for some time.

But now we know precisely what is included in the new COD update 1.03 build for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Sharing patch notes on social media, Infinity Ward revealed that today’s update includes a lot of changes made since the betas were released in 2019.

It also appears that this new Call of Duty patch will make it possible to play Ground War when it goes live. A message from Infinity Ward explains: “We’re almost there!

“Modern Warfare launches in a few hours, and soon you’ll be able to hop into Campaign, Special Ops, and Multiplayer. Watching the game light up across the globe is so exciting, and we’re happy to have all of you along for the ride and to celebrate with us.

“Be sure to check out the landing page for Modern Warfare over on the Activision Games Blog. Check out guides, and see what’s coming.

“You’ll be able to earn and unlock exclusive gear and XP for both Multiplayer and Special Ops when you play through the Campaign as well, so don’t skip out! Plus, on Friday night, be sure to grab some of your friends for Ground War!

“Now, since Beta, we’ve made a TON of fixes to the game.”

As ever, this new update will only be available to those who have seen the official Call of Duty servers for Modern Warfare go live.

So if there are any local problems with the rollout, or you’re playing on a platform that hasn’t gone live yet, you may have to wait.

And it should also be noted that there are some ongoing problems being flagged by players tonight.

Xbox One X gamers are reporting problems with hard crashes, which may also extend to those playing on the original consoles.

Other issues are tied to audio and a problem with being unable to pinpoint where footsteps are coming from.

The good news is that plenty more updates are expected from Infinity Ward and these issues should be fixed in the coming week.
