Confirmed Gear of War 3 freezing problems, fixes coming

By Jamie Pert - Oct 11, 2011

So far it seems as if the highly-anticipated Gears of War 3 launch has gone pretty smoothly, however we are hearing some reports of frustrating GoW 3 freezing issues which seems to be affecting gamers.

Quite often when people try to play a splitscreen horde mode game with two profiles loaded the freeze occurs, but this video also shows a similar thing happening when a gamer tries to run any versus mode quick match – as you can imagine the problem is very annoying.

The Epic Games developers have been busy on the forums trying to get to the bottom of the problem, however haven’t yet given an indication as to when such issues will be rolled-out over Xbox Live, here is what one Epic representative had to say on the matter:

“Getting this resolved is a priority for Epic. We are collecting information internally, sourcing as much as possible from the community and exploring potential fixes. We do not have any recommendations to share with players just yet”

To help Epic Games diagnose the problem you should head over to the forums and answer the questionnaire, there have been 101 pages of replies so far, so it looks like the problem is quite common. The topic was originally addressed on September 27, therefore Epic’s dev team has had roughly two weeks to pinpoint and resolve the problem, hopefully we will hear something useful regarding the matter soon.

For now we would like to hear from you regarding the matter, has GoW 3 freezed for you? If so, have you noticed any pattern as to when it freezes? Let us know in the comments section. Here’s some reactions we spotted on Twitter:

Ythelastmatt – Dear Gears of War 3, please stop freezing and being so fucking buggy, I just want to enjoy and beat you before arkham city comes out. Thnx
