According to reports, a December 6 update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is causing major problems for PC players, including frequent and complete crashes.
Following the game’s most recent update, PC gamers face continuous and serious troubles with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The patch in question was supposed to usher in the final season of the Black Ops Cold War and serve as part of the Warzone Pacific deployment, which adds a new map to the critically praised battle royale mode.
Black Ops Cold War was the seventeenth core game in the long-running action-FPS franchise, and it was released in 2020. Fans liked the game as much as any other Call of Duty game. However, it didn’t create the same impact as 2019’s Modern Warfare revival. Despite this, the game added a slew of new material to Warzone. The series’ free-to-play battle royale mode and its basic multiplayer mode featured the franchise’s trademark fast-paced, addictive moment-to-moment combat. Although Call of Duty: Vanguard was released only a few weeks ago, many gamers are still returning to Cold War for new features like the Zombies: Forsaken map.
According to DualShockers, Call of Duty: 2020 is suffering some fairly serious crashing issues due to the December 6 update, which is bad news for these enthusiasts. The patch was supposed to improve weapon performance and integrate synchronized progression for Vanguard. Still, because of frequent crashes, many PC players have been unable to use these features. According to reports, when the computer crashes, an error message appears that reads, “Regrettably, the application has unexpectedly ceased to function. Try doing a ‘Scan and Repair’ to see if that fixes the problem.” Treyarch Studios promised fans that the problem was being looked upon, but no changes had been applied as of this writing.
This means that the crashing issues have been going on for six days, which is understandably displeasing to fans, especially given how much Black Ops Cold War Season Six’s roadmap excited it up. However, some people believe that the update’s glitchy and unstable characteristics were included on purpose to entice players to purchase Vanguard. Although this is highly unlikely, it is a fascinating reflection of how gamers feel about Treyarch Studios and publisher Activision.
This circumstance begs why a game that was only published a year ago is experiencing such serious issues. Players who purchased the game on the current generation paid $70; thus, being unable to play it for over a week is a reasonable point of contention. Treyarch will need to stabilize Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War as quickly as possible to appease these irritated fans.
