Infinity Ward has released a new update for Call of Duty: Ghosts on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC that adds a new game mode, tweaks a few weapons, and improves spawn logic.

The new game mode is called Reinforce, and is described as “a competitive round based game mode.” When a player is killed that player will remain dead until someone on the team captures a control point. To win players must either capture and hold 2 control points, wipe out the enemy team, or capture all 3 flags for an instant victory.

As well as this new game mode, the update makes a few tweaks to the Bizon, Vepr, CBJMS, IED, and Thermobaric Grenades.
