Those of you who loaded up Gears of War yesterday may have noticed that an update was available for the game via Xbox Live. Yes, this is a second update following the previous update on January 8th. As any Gears fan would do, we tried long and hard to find details on this new patch but to no avail. Fortunately, Vice President of Epic Games Mark Rein has stepped forward to shed some light.
Commenting on the official Gears forums, Mark Rein said “It is a minor compatibility update. No gameplay or functionality changes at this time.”
Yep, I’m afraid that’s all folks. We presume that the minor compatibility update was perhaps some form of localization for the games recent Japanese release. Whilst players from across the globe had started to speculate that the shotgun had become less powerful and that it was now possible to select pink hair for Baird we can assure you that it was indeed all speculation.
We’ll keep a close eye on future Gears of War updates, particularly those that we hope fix the current VGA issues and of course the much talked about glitching. In the mean time, this update is nothing to be excited over.
