Although the Gears of War 3 buzz is starting to build, Epic hasn' forgotten about supporting their middle Gears title as Gears of War recieves another title update that adds social matches and fixes some more exploits. Check out some highlights below:

Improvements

-Adds a new public multiplayer match option called Social Xbox LIVE (aka player matches), open to anyone who owns all downloadable maps

-You can join Social Matches in progress and can quit any time without penalty, although players who quit a match early don’t receive earned experience (XP) from that match.

-Social matchmaking lets your party join a match in progress. If a match is not found, your party hosts a new match, filling any empty player slots with bots.

-Social Matches automatically cycle to the next map without further matchmaking.
Teams are rebalanced between matches based on XP level without splitting parties.

-If you quit, your spot is taken by a bot until a new player joins the match. That new player can join while the match is in progress.

-If you join a match in progress, you are assigned a team based on XP level and party size.

-If you join a match in progress, you replace a bot at the earliest opportunity: at the first bot’s death for respawning game types (for example, Annex) and at round completion for Warzone, Execution, and Wingman.

-Before the match begins, teams are balanced based on XP without splitting parties.
Renames Private Matches to Custom Xbox LIVE Matches and makes these matches invite-only.

-Adds the ability to join Horde sessions that are in progress.

Exploit Fixes

-Title Update 6 fixes these other issues as well:
An issue that could cause your profile to be overwritten, erasing XP level, and achievement progress.

-An issue that could cause a campaign save slot to be overwritten if you previously chose to continue without saving and then signed in.
