Black Ops Update is live

PC News Activision FPS Playstation 3 Xbox 360

Black Ops has generated over $650 million in sales during its first week, which is $100 million more than Modern Warfare 2 achieved over the very same period. People out there must really love that zombie mode, or maybe it is just recreation of the “Zork” game hidden away in the background. I enjoyed about 2 hours worth of gaming playing “Zork”, kept getting stuck in the noisy room though.

However, you guys are probably just here to read up on the update. Treyarch has luckily kept close tabs on all the bugs and have fixed them pretty swiftly. I could be like every other site and direct you to their forums, but that is a pain in the rear. So I’m just going to paste the full list of every single update straight into this post. Less clicking for you guys, I do it just for you. However, if you actually want to go to the forum, Click Here.

Every update since launch is right here, so check them out.
