Updates consist mostly of fixing broken bits and functions inside games, but there are some that bring drastic changes too. This is the case of the latest update for Call of Duty: Ghosts, which will bring the addition of a free new multiplayer mode named “Heavy Duty”, along with the obligatory patches and fixes to the multiplayer mode.
“Heavy Duty” mode aims to address a common complaint made by Call of Duty players: It’s too easy to get killed. The general consensus amongst gamers is that the person who shoots first normally comes out on top in all gunfights. In the new mode, all players will spawn with beefed-up health bars so they can take more punishment before going down, hopefully making gunfights more about strategy rather than the reflex tests that they are. Developers Infinity Ward are looking to collect feedback on the mode, so this is a chance for the players to make their voices heard.
The update is now live on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC. A patch for the Wii U has not yet been released and there is no word on when players will get the update on their console of choice.
