Microsoft and Epic have announced the release of the Gears of War 2 Title Update 6.

The update, which should prompt a download when you load up the game, introduces a new public multiplayer match feature called Social Matches that allows players to jump in or out of games without disruptions – including Horde mode matches.

Social matchmaking also lets a party join a match already in progress or start a new match if there are no suitable matches to be found.

Social matching is open to anyone who owns all four downloadable map packs. All four are included in the All Fronts Collection, now at the new discounted price of 800 Microsoft Points. Individual map packs are available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace at a new lower price as well.

In celebration of the new title update, Epic and Microsoft have also announced a Triple Experience Weekend on Xbox LIVE. Starting tomorrow, Thursday, May 27, at 2pm GMT, fans can earn triple experience in any Gears of War 2 multiplayer mode on Xbox LIVE. The Triple XP weekend will run until Tuesday, June 1 at 2pm GMT.
