Activision has released an update for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) version of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, aiming to address the freezing and lock-up issues.

Shortly after the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 launched, reports started to surface that PlayStation 3 (PS3) players are experiencing issues with the game. Gamers on the PS3 have faced issues such as broken codes for DLC that don't work, as well as problems in the multiplayer portion of the game that caused the system to crash.

Applying the update is supposed to fix at least some of those issues. Users simply have to sign into PSN and start Black Ops 2, allowing the game to download the latest update and apply it.

"We are aware of the system lock-up issues that some players are experiencing on the Playstation 3 platform in Black Ops 2 at this time," Activision said in a statement. "Our entire team is working tirelessly to resolve the issue as quickly as possible."

Activision is hoping to resolve the major issues with the PS3 version of the game. Such issues include getting a system lock-up when entering a public multiplayer library, and getting an error message that reads "An error occurred while trying to find a session, please try again."

The 1.03 patch for the PS3 version of Black Ops 2 is 58MB in size, and the results seem to be mixed. While some users have reported better performance following the update, others are complaining that the game still freezes or continues to pose issues when trying to connect to multiplayer.

Black Ops 2, the latest iteration in the insanely popular Call of Duty franchise, has raked in more than $500 million in the first 24 hours of launch, setting new records. The previous record was set by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which grossed $400 million at launch. The Call of Duty franchise has continued making record-breaking sales since 2009, when Modern Warfare 2 hit the market.

The connectivity issues, framerate shuttering in-game, and freezing before the start of every match, however, have marred the game experience for many users. Players who experience other issues with the game can fill out a form to alert Activision of the flaws.
