Gears of War 2's Title Update 4 now Live

Joystiq writes:

Heads up, COG soldiers. Epic's Gears of War 2 has just received its highly-anticipated fourth Title Update. The new update not only adds experience to Horde mode, but also fixes a variety of bugs, according to the update notes on the Gears forums. Aside from fixing some issues with the new cringe-inducing smoke grenades, the new update also tweaks the Wingman match type, doing away with some of the issues involving weapon spawning and a particularly nasty exploit where players could get credit for two kills while only killing one opponent.

Hopefully, this will fix some of the persistent issues plaguing Gears of War 2's online component. So, grease up your Lancer and head out into battle. This weekend is chock full of XP, after all! (Gears of War 2, Xbox 360)

Decided to have a quick game this morning, only changes i noticed was the Deleted scenes option (greyed out) on the main screen.

they've added experience points for the horde mode ... so for every public horde session you complete.. you get 150 xp for it ... also gives the host the added ability to restart a failed wave in a public match

also since its july 4th ... this weekend every 10th wave of public horde is going to be tickers only ... so as to help you get the 50 wave achievements with more ease ...

outlawlife  +   1751d ago

shysun  +   1751d ago

i'm still having problems with matchmaking :(... before the third patch everything was running fine for me ... matchmaking used to happen in a few seconds but now its just too slow ... and i absolutely love this game but this is too bad man... anyways i've been going back into a lot of mercenary team death matches in cod 4 to satisfy the online gaming
outlawlife  +   1751d ago
really nothing big changed gameplay wise in the patch

the big problems are still there

i'm about about 10k from my level 50 and then i'm shelving it, I gave it 4 chances, more than enough in my eyes

Well horde has become a ticker fest.
outlawlife  +   1751d ago
that is only for the weekend...that has nothing to do with TU4

that is a hot change for the special event weekend
Shbzshar  +   1750d ago
