Gears 3 Title Update 4 Now Live with Bug Fixes and Improvements

Epic has pushed out the fourth multiplayer title update for Gears of War 3 in preparation for the release of the Forces of Nature DLC later this month.  The update addresses a host of bugs, which you can see below, as well as some improvements to the multiplayer gameplay.  From what I’ve seen about title update 4 there aren’t any life changing fixes coming, but it’s nice to know that Epic is staying on top of this game and listening to its fans.  Check out the full list of bugs and improvements that title update 4 will address.  You’ve been thinking about when you’ll have time to play this game again…
