Gears of War PC Patch Restores Playability

By Chris Faylor, Feb 09, 2009 7:41am PST Now available on FileShack is a patch that restores playability to Gears of War PC.

The 6.29 MB download resolves an issue with the game's digital certificate, which expired on January 28 and prevented players from booting the game thereafter.

"The online cheat detection features in Gears of War for Windows are based on digital signatures. Well, we made an embarrassing mistake: we signed the executable with a certificate that expired in a way that broke the game," Epic VP Mark Rein had explained.
