Well when the patch does come, other than Punkbuster support we have two new maps to look forward to. "Rhine" and one of the best maps from Call of Duty 1 multiplayer "Harbor" will be included. Right now servers can run third party programs that somewhat help with the hacking going on, or a server can choose to run in "pure" mode, which checks files and if they do not match the servers files, denies entry into the server. What troubles me more than anything, is that we have to wait this long for the first patch. What does that tell us about future patches and updates? What with Call of Duty 3 down the road, and a horde of X-Box 360 users to support now, things don't exactly bode well for us PC users. Surprising, isn't it? Perhaps Activision and Infinity Ward should go the way Splash Damage and id went with Enemy Territory, and release the multiplayer portion of the game for free.
