We have ourselves another patch to fix up both the online multiplayer and Zombies modes in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Primarily, these changes were made due to the new issues found within the most recent DLC map pack, “Apocalypse”. No major additions to the game were made, however, just a whole bunch of minor tweeks and alterations to polish things out.
The full 1.15 patch can now be downloaded on Xbox today, while the PS3 players will only have a select number of fixes to watch out for (found in the “General” section in the patch notes below). Even though the PlayStation 3 and PC owners won’t be able to grab the “Apocalypse” DLC until September 26th, it’s always good to be informed for what’s to come. Apocalypse brought forth a bunch of new multiplayer maps and an all new Zombies stage, “Origins”, set in WW1 France. Read on for the full list of changes from developer, Treyarch:
