Gears of War 4 has received its first update today, which is set to deploy fixes to both the singleplayer campaign and multiplayer matchmaking.
The title update's biggest change addresses an issue in the campaign's third act, which can block progress past the fifth chapter. While a chapter restart was previously required, the update is set to eliminate this hindrance. Today's update comes in at an estimated 200MB on Xbox One, and a slightly larger 300MB on Windows 10.
A server side update is also being deployed, which revolves around balancing and connectivity in the game's multiplayer portion. While this update is automatically applied, The Coalition has warned of potential server disruptions during the rollout period.
Here are the changes from today's 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 wait times. We'll be monitoring it's impact closely.
