Infinity Ward has rolled out a new update for Call of Duty: Ghosts across all platforms—yes, even Wii U—that introduces new features, updates the game’s anti-cheat measures, and more.

The update makes Free Fall available to everyone, makes all challenges active at the same time, updates the main menu layout, and adds Hunted Free For All to the leaderboard. The game’s anti-cheat tools have also been updated and players are now prevented from inappropriately modifying ‘kick’ messages.
