The Coalition just released a title update for Gears of War 4 to address a known issue that can block progress and require a Chapter Restart in Act 3, Chapter 5. Also, the company pushed out three Live Updates: one that fixes matchmaking issues, a second that increases the Rounds to Win limit to extend the time spent in Dodgeball matches, while the third implements Credits changes.

Your connection to the servers will drop while installing these updates. As a result, the connecting symbol will appear above your emblem on the title screen for as long as the server connection is unavailable.

Here are the details of this update

Title Update
We have released a small Title Update which is rolling out now to address a known issue that can block progress and require a Chapter Restart in Act 3, Chapter 5.

On Xbox One, this title update will be approximately 200mb.

On Windows 10, this title update will be approximately 300mb. In addition, you will need to ensure you update to the latest OS to receive this Title Update and future Title Updates. Please update now to get this patch.

You can update by going to Settings > Update & security > Windows Update, and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your PC is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available.

If you launch the game on Windows 10 without the update, you will get a message that an update is required to play with a link to the store. Clicking this link only minimizes the game when it takes you to the Store – please close the game fully before updating to avoid errors.

Live Updates

Matchmaking Update
Our Online Services team continue to work around the clock on rectifying some of the matchmaking issues encountered by players. We have deployed another server side update which we anticipate will improve matchmaking times. We’ll be monitoring it’s impact closely.

Dodgeball Rounds To Win Increase
Rounds to Win: 3 -> 4
We’ve increased the Rounds to Win limit to extend the time spent in Dodgeball matches, which our data and fan feedback indicates is currently running a little on the low side.

Credits Change
We’ve made some changes to the Credit Gain rate based on our data and fan feedback. Please read more about that HERE.
