In a post on the official Gears of War forums, Epic Games vice president Mark Rein announced that Gears of War will be receiving a gameplay update via Xbox Live prior to the launch of the 2 new multiplayer maps on January 10th. I've been in bed sick all day, so odds are the patch is already waiting for you the next time you log into the game. Here's what to expect;

• Fixed aspect ratio distortion when using VGA cable with 4:3 displays at resolutions higher than 640x480
• Fixed voice issue with new players joining Player Match games in progress
• Players can now get the Achievement for "Dish Best Served Cold" when using Troika turret to kill RAAM
• Fixed rare situation where host could loop countdown and never start match
• Fixed rare situation where players could get stuck after chainsawing in multiplayer
• Reduced Grenade Tag melee distance
• Enabled “Strict” NAT check on host to prevent possible connection issues
• Optimized server browser queries to return results more quickly and prevent scroll bars from hiding quality of service icons
• Reduced number of possible revives in Execution to match Warzone
• Removed host name from Ranked match server browser
• Disabled security cameras in Ranked matches
• Ranked matches now require balanced teams (3v3 or 4v4)
• Increased penalty for quitting a Ranked match to -50 points
• Added additional cheat detection code
• Additional housekeeping updates

As you can see, most of the updates are for the multiplayer end of the game and would seem to be aimed at patching some glitches and exploits. If you're interested in seeing the full post over at the official Gears forums, click here.
