The Coalition is going patch crazy with Gears of War 4, releasing yet another gigantic patch that will test the strength of your internet connection and download cap - with the latest patch weighing in at a hefty 29GB.

Gears of War 4's latest update is called Rise of the Horde, which includes new skills for each class, new difficulty modes, two new maps, and enables Crossplay in Ranked Play between Windows and Xbox gamers. The developer has teased that there will be a new trial of Gears of War 4 made available between June 9-15, something that will let you play through the entire first Act of the campaign, as well as a tease of the Horde and Versus modes.

The developer has baked in some delicious multi-GPU improvements in the new Gears of War 4 patch, removed an exploit that let players kill friendly team mates in Horde, updates to all zombie characters to use standard character dialogue, and a slew of other fixes and improvements... something I'd expect for a huge 29GB patch.
