'Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3' PC beta news: Developer releases update to fix issues on Windows 10 PC version; Gamers having trouble with matchmaking across platforms


PC gamers have flooded the message boards of Steam community forums about issues being encountered with Call of Duty Black Ops 3 on Windows 10 PC.

Most of the complaints involve very low frame rates renedering gamers unable to play the game. Some have complained that because of the issue, the game would not even load while some have aired disappointment that the game crashes immediately after the publisher’s logo appears.

The developer for the PC version of the game, Treyarch has assured that they are working on the issues but has advised gamers to perform a quick fix before it becomes available.

Treyarch has already released an update to the Windows 10 version but if the problem persists, the developer suggested that gamers encountering issues on “certain Intel Core i5 CPUs” should eid the INI file to resolve some of the issues immediately. In the config.ini file, gamers could also try to change WorkerThreads = 4 to WorkerThreads = 2. This file is located in the players folder of the game installation directory, reported Win Beta.

Meanwhile, gamers have also taken to social media to call the attention of Activision to issues connecting to a game across various platforms, reported Playstation LIfestyle.

Players have reported having trouble joining matches and connecting online. Some have expressed outrage for paying $54.99 for the game and not being able to connect to the servers.

The problem with matchmaking severely affects the gaming experience of those who are heavily invested in multiplayer mode and it seems that the issue is not being caused by the players’ internet connection or console.

Activision’s Support Twitter has not been very helpful thus far, and addressed a users’ question with a simple: “Unfortunately we don’t have any updates at the moment. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.”
