We’re getting reports that a new update, around 453.5MB in size, has rolled out for Call of Duty: Ghosts on PC. The new update has added a highly requested feature: an FOV changer, which allows the max setting of 80.

UPDATE: Infinity Ward has released the official patch notes:

New Features

    • Added FOV slider to the MP PC menu.
    • Added leaderboards for Gun Game.
    • Added functionality to view the clans of remote players.

    What’s the point? Ghost on PC has been dead for a long time. it PEAKS at 9-10k players(it was at 50-60k at launch)….the damage cannot be undone.

    • aaa187

      Yeah, too late.

      The game runs like crap anyway, an FOV is not enough for me to install it again.

      Went back to Black Ops 2 and COD 4.

      Black Ops 2 even has more players daily..lol

      Peak today:

      Black Ops 2: 10,879

      Ghosts: 8,939

      • Brandalf

        I know, I don’t like Black Ops 2 much either, but at least it runs proper on PC. Ghosts was and still is a slap in the face to PC gamers. I’m glad to see if fail so hard. I would prefer they just don’t release the damned games on PC if they’re going to be such piss poor quality.

        • Sal

          Who the fuck knew that it was going to have an horrible port? I can’t list with all the fingers on my body a bunch of games who had TERRIBLE ports and aren’t dead yet. GTA IV is a prime example, it’s the worst Rockstar game in terms of performance on PC.

          • ZermbiesFurLife

            fanboooy tryhard no-lifer.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Ye, but now we know! Fuck IW. MW3 was shit on PC, and now Ghost is shit as well. So, no thank you.

          • Sal

            Yeah, keep ranting, you’ll come back to Ghosts anyway.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            HAHAHAH, Nope. I.WILL.NOT!

          • BSOG

            How was MW3 bad on PC? Your opinion needs to be validated.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            No FoV changer, hackers everywhere, it was very poorly optimized! I have 40-60fps on that game, maxed out. And the problem is not my PC. I have 130fps on Black Ops 2, maxed out.

          • MeisseN

            I agree with all but framerate with you about MW3. Optimization is okay (because the graphics are so outdated) and I have a never-changing 90 fps (since it’s the frame cap). Anyways when I max out Ghosts I have around 50 fps.

      • Mitch

        I love how when everyone said that Treyarch sucked massive D when BO2 was the most recent CoD, now Ghosts is out, and suddenly I see:
        ”Treyarch is the only good CoD developer”
        ”Treyarch is the CoD savior”
        Watch the same happen with Ghosts and the next CoD.

        • NuttyTheSquirrel

          People said that because the old IW was (and is) better than Treyarch, and the treyarch CoD’s were kinda “shit” compared to the old IW games, but since MW2/Black Ops, since the old IW left (most of them, anyways) the studio, IW hasn’t been nearly as good as in the past. Anyways, people saw that MW3 was really shit compared to Black Ops (I still remembered everyone saying that Black Ops was shit compared to MW2) so people actually saw that Black Ops was better than MW3 and hoped that Treyarch would bring that CoD feeling, but they didn’t. Black Ops 2 isn’t has bad as MW3, it isn’t even a bad game. But it’s a bad CoD game (compared to the old ones: CoD4, WaW, MW2 and Black Ops). Anyways, I hope that the next Treyarch game as good as Black Ops/MW2, but I hope that it doesn’t have that rocky release that Black Ops had. I don’t think I’m gonna buy this year’s CoD. I think Sledgehammer is still inexperienced and I think that Activision is putting too much pressure on this studio, most of them are still inexperienced in the CoD/FPS genre.

          • Chris Mason

            Your entire argument is invalid if you think SH is inexperienced. I’m not saying it will be a revival of CoD, initially, but neither Treyarch nor IW hit their “prime” on the very first CoD.

            You lack perspective.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Exactly. But before IW made CoD, they made Medal of Honor, which was their first game, and it was one very innovative, graphically amazing and all that jazz at the time. Every gmae that the old IW made was good. But even if they had a rocky start, they weren’t under pressure like Sledgehammer is now. When IW and Treyarch started doing games, they didn’t had millions of people buying it. But it is a hole new story with Slegdehammer, since CoD is probably one of the biggest, probably the second biggest gaming franchise in the world. As I said, Sledgehammer is inexperienced, they’ve just made the DLC for MW3. IW always hit their prime in every single game they’ve made (old IW). Treyarch started making acceptable/good CoD’s when they made WaW. It still wasn’t a great game, but it was fun. Sledgehammer is being pushed into this world that it is very unknown to them. They’re gonna see how some gamers can be fucking assholes. I’m not saying that it won’t be a good game, and I can totally understand why. BUT, they will get soo many hate that they will be fucking afraid to do another CoD game. And they really CANNOT fuck this game up. CoD sales are slowly decreasing, and I can assure you that if this next CoD game isn’t good enough, they will lose many players. They already lost many players this year. I hope that Slegdehammer will be the new (old) IW!

          • TheShadowReaper

            yeah but Treyarch surpassed old IW when Black Ops was released. i can give you solid points why its a better game than both COD4 and MW2 and most of the problems that people talk about BO have been patched in the first 2 months or so yet they still use them as a point, talk about stupid.

            as for MW3 i played it, it was bad but not so bad that you get no motivation to play it. as for BO2, i played the shit out of it.

            Ghosts isnt a bad game either but its lacking in one thing and thats giving you motivation to continue playing it.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            You have to realize that the gaming community has been growing rapidly. Not nearly as many people played videogames then as they did now. I completely agree with basically everything else you’re saying. Ghosts has no incentive at all to level up.

          • Ben

            Actually Sledgehammer has some experience, since they did the MW3’s multiplayer mode.

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            Sledgehammer only did the DLC actually.

          • platinumwarrior121

            at-least you understand,the old IW and this new IW is completely different

            mw1 and mw2 is better then all treyarch cod games,

            treyarch- War at world is a ok to everyone,black ops 1(to me is bad) is a good game public wise, black ops 2 is in the middle,mostly ok(just bad hit detection and stupid target finder)

            New infinity world-mw3(was ok to me) but bad to the public and ghost is just all around awful

            now we have sledgehammer who helped make mw3,but their still very unknown so will see

          • TheShadowReaper

            Black Ops 1 is the best in the series. you and Storm are on drugs.

          • platinumwarrior121

            no we just know good cod games,black ops 1 was filled with campers and that was a noob friendly game,very stale and flat out boring(def compared to mw1 and mw2)…people who suck loved black ops 1,just read countless articles about it

          • TheShadowReaper

            yeah cause calling in airstikes, heavy helis and waiting in a corner for your nuke to go online was SUCH an amazing act and it added so much right? yeah, people on drugs like you and Storm sucked at BO1 and thats why you hate it. cant blame you though, the game needed a certain level of skillcap in order to play, still does. and when compared to MW2 and the rest of MW series they feel like a kids game when put next to BO1. so i’ll assume you’re around 15 years old, which explains a lot.

          • platinumwarrior121

            lol im pretty im better then you at every first person shooter game,do you even play battlefield?you took offense because you know its true,calm down little kid,its ok we all know black ops 1 is noob friendly(you must of felt bad ass playing a sucky game),even world at war scored a higher score then black ops 1,plus little kids didnt start playing cod online till bops1,mw 1 and mw2 was full of grown men and teenagers,which you wouldn’t know since you started off playing black ops 1

          • TheShadowReaper

            cause using killstreaks that stack, OMA Danger Close noobtubes, UMP45, G18, Striker, OMA Danger Close RPG + so many more was actually skills and not abuse of broken class setups in MW2 right? *sign* you 15 year olds…my point has been made.

          • platinumwarrior121

            you literally just named flaws like every single first person shooter has dumb ass,i can tell you know nothing lol

          • TheShadowReaper

            like every first person shooter has? ok this conversation is over. you’re officially a retard.

          • platinumwarrior121

            i said “EVERY”,learn how to read correctly dumb ass,and yes every first person shooter will have flaws in the game-play,how old are you? 9?

          • TheShadowReaper

            thats your age. i’m 23. been playing FPS games since CS was a mod. and no, thats MW2’s flaws. no other game has these particular flaws, unless you havent played MW2 and you have been bullshiting me all along. which is possible ofc considering that you have been behaving worse than your age. around 5 years i would assume.

            btw i edited it. happy now?

          • platinumwarrior121

            holy fuck you are retarded,you cant read….i said every first person shooter has flaws,mw2 flaws were 1.the people who camped for the nuke,2.stupid two new perks they added (one man army and danger close)and 3.the hack,before all that everything else was great,only people who sucked complained about the over powered kill-streaks and weapons because they kept getting there asses owned,..black ops 1 was a easy noob friendly game,that’s why you enjoyed it because you are a noob lol

          • TheShadowReaper

            its exactly the opposite. MW2 was the most noob friendly FPS game i’ve ever played. cant even come close to be compared to Black Ops. it must suck being you.

          • platinumwarrior121

            nah i have a great feeling that you sucked at mw2,and you was much better in black ops,very predictable..since black ops 1 is a much easier game(everyone knows that)

          • Penguin-Kun

            You mean fags with target finders and lmgs with target finders?
            Yeah. 3ARC sure made BO2 feel like shit, it’s one of the problems in the game.

          • platinumwarrior121

            target finder period,target finder with lmg is the worst invention ever created lol i use to get pissed everytime a camper killed me with one

          • jordanxbrookes

            I agree with you.

          • Penguin-Kun

            I agree on it being the best, but boy, it’s even f’d up than Ghosts on PC. Oh wait, nevermind. I thought you said BO2 😛
            Still, BO1 had everything great, while BO2 has one of the fastest and best gameplays, even with crappy things in them.

          • TheShadowReaper

            BO1 had only one problem and that was a bad PC port. it was fixed rather quickly for pretty much everyone but the dmg had been done.

            as for BO2, its PC port was great. but again only one problem. the maps were too small and felt like cubes that you are imprisoned in, thus making the game faster than it needed to be.

            but thats all the complains that i have for the BO series. i really enjoyed them.

          • ZermbiesFurLife

            Old IW is as good as treyarch. New IW are the shittiest dev’s ever.

          • platinumwarrior121

            old IW was on another level then treyarch,this new IW staff needs to be fired quick

          • ZermbiesFurLife

            Well they made titanfall so yeaaaah. I love titanfall

          • PandaMan

            Inexperienced? You do know that sledgehammer games did Dead Space, right? That is one of the best franchises in gaming history, and they’re inexperienced? You lack logic

        • CoDforever

          Yea but when people hated Bo2 they STILL played it, they played it and “hated” it. People legitimately hate Ghosts and DO NOT play it. I Hate ghosts with a passion and i havent played it in a long time. A lot of people are like the same. Black ops 2 was so hated yet it still managed to maintain high player count and i will admit, i bashed the game so much but still played the crap out of it. the number of people playing BO2 right now beat out ghosts by 30%.

          • chris

            u say u don’t play ghost but still ur commenting that the dlc is bad?

          • CoDforever

            dlc is bad? When did i say that? I love extinction though

          • i♥COD

            totally agree, BO2 was not the best COD but still had that addictiveness! Ghosts was the first COD ive given up on.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Well the next COD is a new developer. Who knows, it could be the best COD or the worst one yet. Personally, I always supported Treyarch, as I like how their games play and the zombies are a plus. But yeah, the majority of the community likes to flip flop.

      • chris

        actually I stll play mw3 and they are more people online on mw3 than bo2

    • Actually the max peak was only 37,268 on 11/10… much much less than any previous COD release.

      • Brandalf

        It broke 50k, maybe not on launch day but it did break 50k within the first week of release.

        • Trust me it didn’t go past 37,268 peak. I log the stats.

    • Guest

      Seriously…

      • BSOG

        Bro, don’t mess with that koala, he’s a descendant of Chuck Norris and Liam Neeson.

    • Guest

      seriously…

  • TheGamerBeast

    FINALLYYY

  • SpawnStaR

    It’s a shame the guns kill so fast in Ghosts. It takes the fun right out of what’s suppose to be a run and gun shooter. It use to be you could turn on a camper and often kill them but the player health is so low the game isn’t much fun. If Infinity Ward would address that and add some game types to fit the big maps Ghosts could survive and be a fun shooter

    • bImperial

      Dude guns dont kill any faster than they have….unlike in BO2 you dont have so much frame skipping and your bullets ACTUALLY hit

      • ZermbiesFurLife

        Your wrong, the guns have a much higher Time To Kill, especially AR’s, which make the game seem like you are killed fast, and it is because the guns are made that way. Maybe if IW could make a game that inst shit then you can talk. I miss the old infinity ward. Cod4 and MW2, downloading Titanfall now, screw ghosts.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Love how you call someone a no-life, yet you seem to be the sweaty expert that knows all, GG.

          • Guest

            Love how he deleted the no life part from his comment. He knows it’s true, lol.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Player health is at 100 units, like every other Call of Duty, so no the health isn’t low.

      • CoDforever

        Yea obviously, they just messed up big time with the hit detection/ hit notification

        • jordanxbrookes

          How did IW mess up the hit detection? I don’t know what game your playing, hit detection for me in Ghosts has been absolutely amazing compared to previous Call of Duty titles.

          • Duke of hazard

            Which is exactly why you die faster than the previous cod. The bullets actually work.

            “FIX THE HIT DETECTION! MY BULLETS AREN’T CONNECTING!” *Hit detection gets fixed* “THIS GAME SUCKS! YOU DIE TOO FAST!” (FACE DESK)

            God this community is a joke.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I’m not the one complaining about hit detection idiot.

          • Duke of hazard

            I wasn’t saying that, buddy. I was extending to what you were saying.

          • Duke of hazard

            I was extending on what you were saying, idiot. I mean it was so simple to figure out.

          • CoDforever

            No not that hit detection,the other hit detection (when YOU’RE getting hit) They messed it up somehow because the game only notifies you when being shot on the last bullet, something like that

          • TheShadowReaper

            he talks about hit detection on receiving end of bullets. when you are being shot all you get as feedback from the game is that you died, since thats when the game actually notifies you of something involving combat. in previous COD games i was being warned when half a bullet scratched my cheek with a red indicator. in Ghosts i get red indicator right before last bullet hits me and then killcam. the hit detection is better, way better when you are the offender but as the defender it sucks ass. it has killed the game for me.

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      No, it used to be- Someone sees you first, you’re dead. The good CoD were/are like that. MW3, BLACK OPS 2 and Ghosts aren’t like that.

  • Randal Mcdaniel

    This is the best patch yet, it made the game run so much smoother. Simply changing fov from 65 to 70 makes the world of difference. Idk why people hate ghosts so much, the matchmaking servers are ALL dedicated on pc now. You can even ask IW they are all run by gameservers.com. Beats that latency crap of MW3 and B02 with the lag and the migrating host bs

    • NuttyTheSquirrel

      You can only chage it to 70?

      • iWoundPwn

        There is a 70 FOV option but it goes up to 80 as I have tested!

    • Ben

      Good for you, I didn’t noticed any performance improvement, still have the stutter lags here. :<

      • 30011887

        i found a fix for that stutter, run the game with windowed borderless, instead of fullscreen, then i disabled motion blur, distortion and dof, this worked for me, might work for others

        • Wraith

          The spikes only arent that bad for me if I play on medium, with all those things u said off, and texture detail off.

    • Wombo

      Shit, it only goes up to 80? I’m always at 85…

    • Penguin-Kun

      All? Dedicated? PC?! Shit, now’s a good reason why PC is much smoother than consoles and this is coming from a gamer branched but by the retro and popular game consoles 😀

    • MeisseN

      BO2 uses dedi servers as well. MW3 though

  • TotallyCrafted

    Did they fix the fps at the start of a match?

  • Guest

    the game wont even load after the patch, wtf

  • I just have to wonder why they are even wasting any more money on supporting the PC platform with Ghosts. I mean its not like they can do anything that will revive the game and bring people back. It’s pointless and they should just invest that money elsewhere that it would be more beneficial… like starting on their next 3 year development cycle and learn how to implement the proper dedicated servers, features, tools and game modes for their next game.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      People complain that IW has no support for PC. They start to fix PC. People complain that they’re wasting resources. Logic.

      • Sal

        This is why no one takes the CoD community seriously. They’re like Tumblr feminists. The only winning move is not to play their stupid mind games.

      • That’s the problem – they are *starting* to fix it months too late. The game is dead. When I play (or if I would play) I can join TDM or DOM – that is literally the only two playlists that have any players in them. At this point it is only a waste of money to be adding features that should have been there day 1.

  • RdJokr

    Even though I’m usually fine with the default FOV of 65, it’s great that IW finally added this in for the sake of the PC community. Although they should’ve done so at launch time, considering that Treyarch did just that with Black Ops II (and even patched it to 90).

  • BSOG

    I’ve just read all the comments and most of them are ridiculous. I’m sorry, but I’m finding it difficult to take this fan-base seriously. Most of you are are acting like prepubescent children. I swear, I can go to a Nintendo-themed (fan) website (where, despite popular belief, not everyone is 12 years old, and the games aren’t made for said age-groups solely), where everyone will act as though they’re upper-class gentleman. I was told that is was meant to be the other way around (according to what people here, as well as other places, say). You people should really grow up (in every way) and fit the age requirements of this franchise.

    • Sal

      People here are like Tumblr SJW. Always whinning and crying about something no one gives a damn crap about.

  • Blaine

    About fucking time. Sad that adding a basic feature has to be considered an “improvement” and an “addition.” Anyway, its weird how 80 FOV in Ghosts feels like 90 FOV in BO2. With the FOV hack I tried 90 FOV in Ghosts and it was just too much, but i played with 90 FOV on BO2 the whole time and it was fine.

    • Sal

      I noticed this too, I guess that’s just how IW makes the field of view on this game.

    • MeisseN

      The thing that makes you feel weird is the gun model. BO2’s guns are held a little closer to the viewer and the bottom of the guns are modeled, so when on 90 FOV even the gun extends/reaches out the ratio is correctly kept. But if you go on 90 FOV in MW3/Ghosts the stock of the gun looks stretched.

      But still, I think it would be better if FOV only affects your view, but not the gun model (like BF3, Crysis 3, Borderlands 2, Far Cry 3 or BF4)

  • Molon

    Every stupid guy said that COD MW3,Ghosts was bad and shit he have to know that hes a big shit ,i finished COD Ghosts and MW3 they wasn’t bad they was awesome with epic end

  • Tayer Hammond

    That’s ALL they did to the Riot Shield???
    Make it so they’re vulnerable to attack when they’re about to throw something?
    You know they still have the Reflex perk that lets them throw things really fast, blow it up and get back behind their shield before the enemy even realized he was exposed. If this is their idea of a “nerf”, then they’re sadly mistaken.
    Search and Rescue/Destroy is still ruined because of this combination. Riot shielders are still going to be invincible because of the Reflex perk. The enemy has NO time to react to the player. This is a horrible way to “nerf” the riot shield. Whoever’s bright idea it was to include the riot shield with explosives and a PORTABLE RADAR ATTACHMENT ontop of the already super overpowered class should be fired immediately for ruining Search and Rescue/Destroy in Ghosts.

  • Mohamed Firoz Koonathil

    how can i download this patch?
    does this patch converts the ram requirement to 4 gb?
