GDC 2008: Details on Upcoming Call of Duty 4 "Feature Patch"

Infinity Wards communications manager, Robert Bowling, confirmed some of the upcoming features for the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare PLAYSTATION 3 patch.

- Optimized servers
- New Kill cams (grenades, RPG's, airstrikes, claymores, and more)
- Quick Mute (allows user to mute annoying players by pressing X on their gamertag in the lobby)
- Addition of "Recently Met Players" for the PlayStation Network
- Improvements to the Sniper Rifles and Acog attachments (no more delayed shots)
"(With the new kill cams) you can watch from when the grenade leaves the enemies hand all the way to the explosion that kills you," said Robert Bowling.

PLAYSTATION 3 gamers can also expect servers to run smoother. The four hour "Downloading Game Settings" bug was due to DemonWares servers having to handle the massive amounts of PlayStation 3 users logging in. With the new optimizations, no more problems should occur anymore.
