Gears of War updated

Gears of War updated

Published On January 10, 2007 | By Console Monster | News

As I’m writing this, that piece of paper displaying a massive amount of coordinated numbers (also know to normal people as a “calendar”) shows that it’s already Wednesday which means some fairly awaited content is about to infest our pure-white consoles. Even though the time is not yet due for that, you’ll have to prepare yourself for further chainsawing insanity by popping your Gears of War disc in the tray and applying a bug squashing patch to the game. The update fixes issues as listed:

  • Fixed aspect ratio distortion when using VGA cable with 4:3 displays at resolutions higher than 640×480
  • Fixed voice issue with new players joining Player Match games in progress
  • Players can now get the Achievement for “Dish Best Served Cold” when using Troika turret to kill RAAM
  • Fixed rare situation where host could loop countdown and never start match
  • Fixed rare situation where players could get stuck after chainsawing in multiplayer
  • Reduced Grenade Tag melee distance
  • Enabled “Strict” NAT check on host to prevent possible connection issues
  • Optimized server browser queries to return results more quickly and prevent scroll bars from hiding quality of service icons
  • Reduced number of possible revives in Execution to match Warzone
  • Removed host name from Ranked match server browser
  • Disabled security cameras in Ranked matches
  • Ranked matches now require balanced teams (3v3 or 4v4)
  • Increased penalty for quitting a Ranked match to -50 points
  • Added additional cheat detection code
  • Additional housekeeping updates

So, do yourself a favor and gear up, get the chains rollin’ and let’s shoot some locust all over the freakin’ place.
