Infinity Ward has rolled out a new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This Day 1 update doesn't make any major changes to the game, but it does fix a few of the bugs in the game. The full patch notes are listed below.
In GameSpot's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare review in progress, Kallie Plagge wrote, "The pitfalls of Spec Ops don't detract from what Modern Warfare does well. Realism mode is an excellent addition to the slate, and although not all the new multiplayer modes are great, Gunfight and the Night Vision playlist are refreshing standouts. And while the campaign ends up playing it safe in the end, it's still a memorable one, and it lays a strong foundation for where the Modern Warfare series could go from here."

Modern Warfare's largest multiplayer mode is currently unavailable--just like the game's NVG mode, which was removed at launch with an update that also implemented a few bug fixes. Currently, you can only queue into Quick Play, Gunfight, Cyber Attack, Realism, and Private Match.
