You have to admire the folks over at Epic. Already, just over half a year since release, Gears of War 2 its fourth title update. Not too many games get this level of attention, and we're glad to see that there's a lot of co-op goodness to be had in this latest update. From Epic's official Update 4 Release Notes:
• Adds the ability to collect multiplayer experience by playing Horde mode.
• Adds the ability to restart Public Horde from the current failed wave instead of having to start over from wave 1. Title Update 4 also allows the host to kick players from a Public Horde session.
• Adds support for the new campaign chapter, "Road to Ruin."
In case you had forgotten, "Road to Ruin", an hourlong deleted campaign chapter, will be available in the upcoming DLC pack Dark Corners, along with several new maps. All Fronts, a collection including Dark Corners and all the previous DLC, is coming as well (though the retail version of All Fronts has been cancelled). Both are headed your way on July 28, so get your Lancers gassed up!
