“Gears PC owners who tried to fire up the game yesterday were met with a rather jarring response,” says The Escapist, going on an error message, “tells users to reinstall the game, which unfortunately does nothing to correct the problem”.
It’s something to do with Modified Executable Code which equals, No You Can’t.
“A temporary workaround involves setting your system clock to sometime before this date,” says Planet Gears of War, also observing, “however this is hardly ideal.”
Says Epic SuperMod Joe Graf:
“We have been notified of the issue and are working with Microsoft to get it resolved. Sorry for any problems related to this. I’ll post more once we have a resolution.”
