Update: In the patch notes for today’s update, Infinity Ward says leaderboards will be out by January 31, and Combat Record and Emblem Editor will arrive in late February.

Here’s what was included with update 1.08:

Complete new missions to achieve Commander Ranks!

  • Each Mission Team now goes up to Rank 100! Once you hit that level 50 rank, you’ll go on to chase after a Commander rank until you reach Mission Team Commander Rank 100!
  • New ranks better rewards, so Commander Ranks will reward you MKII versions of Mission Team-only Prototype weapons once achieved. You can also craft more! Commander Ranks reward salvage every level you rank up as long as that level isn’t giving you a MKII Prototype reward.

Original Story: 1.8GB on PlayStation 4 and 2GB on Xbox One, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare update 1.08 is now available to download. Infinity Ward hasn’t updated their Reddit thread or the dedicated page on Activision’s Support site with patch notes yet.

According to players, the new Infinite Warfare update added a new menu, Hyper Team Deathmatch, and the ability to change lobby music in Zombies. Charlie Intel adds that Hyper Team Deathmatch will be available until February 3 through the Featured section, and it’s “Team Deathmatch with reduced cool-downs on payloads.”

Pre-loading for the Sabotage DLC pack should start within the next couple of days on PS4. According to the PlayStation Store, it’s a 7.8GB download.

If you have Modern Warfare Remastered, a “mosh pit of different game modes restricted to shotguns and pistols only” is live through this weekend.

Also, don’t forget that Double XP is now live in both Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered.
