Infinity Ward has released the full patch notes for the newest update to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Most of the update is geared towards general bug fixes and balancing changes, but it makes map changes to Hardcore multiplayer modes too.
The most notable change is the removal of all night maps from the Hardcore modes. Both Hardcore difficulty and night maps are among the best new additions to Infinity Ward’s first-person shooter. The patch notes make no mention of when the night maps may be added again.
It’s not all doom and gloom though, as the update adds a bunch of content back into the game too. Shoot House 24/7 makes a return, replacing Crash 24/7. Docks also makes a return to the Gunfight map rotation, Grazna Raid is added to Hardcore Team Death Match, and Arklov Peak is added to both Hardcore Team Death Match and Hardcore Headquarters.
All these changes and more are outlined in the full patch notes, which are listed below. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC. In GameSpot’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare review, Kallie Plagge writes, “Modern Warfare makes old observations and presents them with new flourishes. Those new flourishes do make for a good campaign and solid multiplayer. But it’s when Modern Warfare asks you to think harder that it falls short.”
