A new title update – the seventh in total – has been released for the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty: Black Ops, repairing a number of niggly errors with the first-person shooter. The same update for the PlayStation 3 game is to be available from this Thursday, March 3rd.
The list of improvements in what is fittingly being called Title Update 7 includes better matchmaking, a fine-tuned sniper rifle, and a fix for Chopper Gunner runs:
♦ Matchmaking improvements to return higher quality results faster. This change includes settings that are tunable in the live environment, so tweaking may continue beyond initial release of this update.
♦ The in-game store now hides DLC map packs that do not match the language of the player’s disc to decrease the possibility of users downloading the incorrect language version.
♦ Calling in a Chopper Gunner immediately after getting shot down in a Gunship will no longer end the Chopper Gunner run prematurely. Required timing-specific button presses.
♦ Split screen players are now able to change camera perspectives and cycle through players as a spectator.
♦ Addressed an issue where the most recent match played in Zombies could overwrite the best match played on the leaderboard.
♦ Improved Zombies lobbies to prevent players from erroneously receiving the error “Unable to join game session” under certain circumstances.
♦ Addressed a number of community-discovered Zombies gameplay exploits.
♦ Additional security feature updates.
♦ Additional sniper rifle tuning.
