Call of Duty: Ghosts PC update makes Riley's fur look better

Samit Sarkar (he/him) is Polygon’s deputy managing editor. He has more than 15 years of experience covering video games, movies, television, and technology.

Call of Duty: Ghosts' latest patch on Windows PC includes support for Nvidia's PhysX and Apex technologies, the latter of which gives Riley the dog much more realistic fur, reports DSOGaming.

Apex gives Riley, as well as the other canines in Ghosts — wolves and attack dogs — fur that dynamically reacts to everything in the game environment. According to DSOGaming, the fur technology can be used even by players who have AMD graphics cards. However, the PhysX features in Ghosts, which include improved particle effects, are exclusive to Nvidia GPUs. You can see the Apex fur in action in the screenshot above, courtesy of the Guru3D forums.

Ghosts developer Infinity Ward also patched the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of the game today. The title updates for PS3, PS4 and PC provide performance improvements, crash fixes and solutions for a host of other minor issues. You can check out the full patch notes for all three platforms here.
