Good news for all you Cogsplayers (see what I did there?), Gears of War 4 has just received its first large content update. Since its release on October 11, the fourth entry in the Gears of War series has been met with high review scores and user reviews alike.

Although being stuck as an exclusive Windows 10 Store game, it’s received a warm welcome form the PC audience. Unlike previous games on the storefront like Quantum Break being plagued with issues, GoW 4’s performance is outstanding. Let’s take a look at what this latest patch brings to any already solid title.

You can check out the patch notes for yourself for a complete rundown on the official Gears of War 4 site, but here are some of the highlights from the December Update patch:

New Maps and Map Rotation Update

Glory and Speyer will be available in the Versus and Horde Developer Playlist from December 6th for Season Pass owners. Both maps will be available in public playlists for everyone, and Private Matches for Season Pass Holders, from December 13th.

Windows 10: Vertical Campaign Split Screen:

We’ve completed work on Vertical Split-Screen support in Campaign for our PC players! You can change the split screen format in the Game Options screen.

Windows 10 Specific Update Details:

  • Player 2 can now set their own FOV in Split-Screen
  • Fixed an issue that could cause cinematics to freeze the game
  • General UI improvements for various resolutions
  • Motion Blur now functions correctly in Multiplayer modes

Great game, great visuals, great performance, not the greatest storefront, but it's ok. Sooo anything new added to an already solid game is just more icing on the cake, delicious sugary icing.
