Sledgehammer has released the first PC patch for Call of Duty: WW2 to bring this version inline with consoles, and add a few PC-specific fixes.

The first Call of Duty: WW2 post-launch patch came out on Friday on PS4, and Xbox One. Shortly afterwards, players reported all sorts of problems, before developer Sledgehammer fixed most of them later.

For these reasons, the patch was delayed on PC. Now, the same patch has made it onto the platform, coming in just 115MB overall. All the nerfs and buffs from the console patch made their way to PC intact, but there have also been a couple of other notable fixes to PC-only problems.

Some of these include a fix for FOV resetting upon launching multiplayer, hitching fixes for 144hz monitors running Freesync, and the addition of Ranked Play. The update also brought support for Discord’s Rich Presence feature.
