    Gears of War 2 - Major Update!

    Post by MoRa on Tue Jan 20, 2009 8:36 pm

    Epic's vice president Mark Rein has given us some information about the upcoming Gears of War 2 update and he has revealed some interesting details. The patch will remove bugs and exploits and will add some new achievements.
    The achievement will be especially for the download-content. According to Rein the update will be released in January. The most important features of the update will base on improving the “game fun” .
    His exact words were like this :

    “We’re fixing a whole bunch of online exploits. For example we’ve fixed the ability to wield an invisible shield, melee through some walls, gain infinite Lancer ammo and equip a shield and a two-handed weapon simultaneously plus many more.
    We’re also making several small changes to improve the overall online gameplay experience. A few of the ones that might interest you are; increased penalties for quitting matches early, adding additional spawn protection against planted grenades and chainsaw attacks, and adding the ability to see the Submission flag carrier destination by using Tac/Com.
    We know you folks love achievements so on the achievement side we’re adding achievement progress numbers to the War Journal, increasing the frequency of in-game Achievement progression notifications and adding some new Achievements for DLC.

    About that shotgun…
    We fixed the client side hit detection on the shotgun so that in a high-latency (i.e. “laggy”) match, the shotgun will be more reliable. We’ve also fixed another bug whereby shotgun and boomshot rounds could strike the ground when firing from the hip.”
