It looks as though this week is game update week as earlier we told you that a Skyrim patch was being worked on. Now we can tell you that the Gears of War 3 tile update is now ready to download. The update brings with it a whole host of new features and other improvements and fixes.
There is now the new spectator mode option that has been added to private versus matches for broadcasting by gaming leagues. Now one player from each team can choose the spectator mode during the setting up of a match. Now matches will be four versus four with two spectators, and now you have the option of disabling the HUD during multiplayer games for machinima and video creators.
There is also a number of Exploit fixes that include the Onyx Field Engineer medal can no longer be prestige among others. The update is bringing with it a big number of general fixes as well that include during Horde if there is a host migration the match will resume at the same wave. There are potential fixes for the rare lost progress issue and the rare profile freezing issue.
Now the Beast leader board screen will no longer refresh while sending challenges and the game will still pause in the Beast, Campaign, and Horde. Epic have said they will launch the Versus Booster Map Pack for the game on November 24th. This will come with two maps that have been refreshed from Gears of War 1, Clocktower and Swamp, as well as Azura, Rustlung and Blood Drive.
For all the new content head over to Epic and let us know if you have already downloaded the update and how it went.
