Microsoft Hits Another Trouble On 'Gears Of War 4'; The Game Dev Teases New Gaming Technique
Microsoft's recent Windows 10 screw-ups are well covered and documented by media across the globe. And today, the software giant has another trouble on the horizon waiting. But this time it's more different, it's not about the Windows platform anymore, it's an update about a third-person shooter game "Gears of War 4."
Microsoft Hits Another Trouble
Microsoft has another trouble this week as Gears of War 4 has received a monstrous update of a whopping 248 GB. The issue comes via Neogaf user Gowans, who suggested that the Gears of war 4 update has first started with 101 GB only but went up to a whopping 248 GB later, according to Wccftech.
Gowan also explained that after canceling, the Gears of War update restarted to download the entire 101 GB again. This was probably an error from Microsoft Store's end as Gears Of War 4 is said to be around 50 GB in size.
The third-person shooter game "Gears of War 4" was first announced for Xbox One game console during the Microsoft's 2015 E3 conference. The company later announced that the third-person shooter game would also be made available for Windows PC exclusively via the Microsoft Windows 10 store.

The upcoming Game Developer Conference (GDC) 2017 is just a few away, and GDC has revealed a new trailer teasing this new animation technique used in the "Gears Of War 4."
