A major update on Black Ops 2 has been released.

Treyarch have released the new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Currently, it's only live for Xbox 360 players, and the update takes up 32MB.

New Features & New Feature Improvements:

  • Added support for Live Streaming in all Public Match playlists.
  • Added League Best from Season 1 to Player Card.
