Call of Duty 2 prepares for patch

Punkbuster makes its way to CoD2, alongside a whole bunch of other updates and improvements, via one of those patches

There's no debate that Call of Duty 2 is one of the finest WWII shooters out there and today, with the announcement of large patch improvements for the game, it's bound to get a whole lot better.

Currently in testing at developer Infinity Ward is a patch for the PC version of the game, which adds long-awaited Punkbuster anti-cheat technology, along with two new multiplayer maps and a host of tweaks and bug fixes. We're also told to expect map editing tools in the near future, which should inject new life into the game's bustling community.

The best-selling Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty 2 is also set for a refresh with a forthcoming update promising a host of improvements, including reduced player lag, increased server options, more custom game settings and all-new post match lobbies.

Infinity Ward hasn't announced a specific release date for the two patches although it seems that we can expect their deployment soon. We'll have more reports from the battlefield as they come.
