Call of Duty: Ghosts PC patch introduces more realistic dog fur

Update allows for nVidia's PhysX and Apex technologies support

Infinity Ward has released a new Call of Duty: Ghosts patch for the PC which sees the return of nVidia powered smoke and realistic fur effects.

The title updates provide a variety of performance and stability improvements, as well as general fixes and support for nVidia's PhysX and Apex technologies.


With the PC version now supporting nVidia's PhysX and Apex technologies, players will see a return of nVidia powered smoke and realistic fur effects. All canines in the game will now have fur that reacts dynamically to the environment.

Reports on DSOGAming suggest that the new fur technology can be enabled by players using AMD graphics cards, however the PhysX features which add realistic and dynamic particle effects are exclusive to nVidia GPUs.

Infinity Ward released Call of Duty: Ghosts patches for the PS3 and XBox 360 versions last week, following the release of a PS4 and PC patch.
