Good news for Black Ops 2 fans, as Treyarch is working on a PC patch and will offer a DoubleXP weekend, though there is no ETA for them yet. Treyarch’s pcdev has spilled the beans earlier this week about the upcoming patch of Black Ops 2, when he tweeted that Treyarch was working on patch and on various AMD and Nvidia hw specific issues.
A lot of PC fans wondered whether they’d get the patch or not. After all, we’ve seen a number of companies releasing exclusively their patches and DLCs on consoles, and let’s not forget that the PS3 version of Black Ops 2 has already been updated. Thankfully, pcdev revealed today that Treyarch will be releasing a PC patch in the coming weeks, and that it will include gameplay balancing as well as other improvements.
Unsurprisingly, Treyarch has been constantly banning users for cheating. As stated earlier this week, Treyarch has a zero tolerance policy on cheating and cheater bans will not be lifted. PC gamers will have to be really carefully, as extreme modding – or hacking game data – is forbidden and will get them banned.
Treyarch’s pcdev brought this issue again today and when a fan asked about a possible DoubleXP weekend for those who don’t cheat, pcdev responded and confirmed that there will be a DoubleXP weekend, though he did not reveal any possible date for it. We can safely assume though that this DoubleXP weekend will be for all platforms of Black Ops 2.
We’ll be sure to inform you about both of them the moment we receive new information, so stay tuned for more!
