News fresh off the web, Microsoft studios have acquired the rights to the Gears of war franchise. Along with this news, Rod Fergusson (Former Director of Production at Epic Games) has followed the franchise over to Microsoft.
I think what they need to do is make it FAMILIAR, not the same, because 'the same' will become stale. People should recognise it as Gears straight away, but have some aspects fresh and innovative so that it feels like a next gen Gears and not just Gears with a new lick of paint. The thing i care about most is Horde 3.0. It was easily one of my favourite MP modes last gen along with BC2 Rush mode and MW2 TDM. Black Tusk have a daunting job ahead of them, i really hope they can pull it off.
Well, Mark Rubin is back so the author shouldn't have to worry. It will be way better than "the same" since an extremely talented studio is now working on it. I am so, so hyped for the next Gears.
They just need a new storyline and new characters. The online experience above all else most remain the same just improved.
I loved overrun and capture the ring! The strategt required in those games was fantastic. Not just run and gun! Although that is fun too! :D
Gears will be better!
It should be greatness Black Tusk is supposed to be composed of some industry veterans and Phil Spencer said the series is going back to it's dark/gritty tone that made the 1st Gears so special
I hope so too cos i want this to be the best in the franchise. I know ms will pour in enough resources to make it great. They will even get cliffy b onboard if they have to...lol
I'd figure make the campaign as epic as Gears of War 2, make the mp a balance between Gears 1 and Gears 3. Get rid of beast mode, go all out on Horde 3.0, and inject a great story for the campaign. They do all of that, they'll have a winner.
Couldn't agree with you more. They are working with UE4 so great graphics are a must but what I truly want is a Next Gen Gears game. No corner cuts, keep what EPIC did right:Campaign, Horde, weapon balance (except for the OP shotgun from 3) build on things. Innovate the cover system, Change how we play the game without changing the game. Challenge us as gamers. God I'm Excited, days like this I feel happy I bought an Xb1.
it cant be the same, im sick of the old! we need new ips!
There is plenty of new IP'S coming relax. Consoles been out a couple of months and there lots of new ips coming in 2014
nothing wrong with mixing the old with the new.
Just like every other Xbox game it will try to become more and more casual in at least one way.
Please make character models more real instead of action figures, not tryna hate i just want it to look spectacular
For the love of God, let Jablonski compose the score. Gears has fantastic music.
Keep the intuitive control lay-out. And introduce a mix of old/new squad team ( but more new ) and a new emerging enemy. Definitely work a compelling story for great game play experience. On a side note -- ( I can also worryingly foresee Microsoft milking this franchise for all it's got.. )
no it wont. it'll have 10x prettier graphics
I think gears of war is in great hands now .. I am completely happy with Microsoft buying this franchise.. And have no doubt the success of the series in the future..I do however have my own ideas in how gears can rise once again... I suggest going back to the combat system built in gears of war 1.. The health system and shot gun was perfect..and allowed anyone who knew how to use a shotgun get out of any situation.. Even..4 guys chasing one could end up the one guy getting a nice quick streak for the round win... I suggest keeping the settings from gears of war 1 including taking out the abilities to plant grenades... It was a pain and encouraged camping... And I don't think throwing frags and sticking them was a good idea and felt too haloish... I suggest just going back to the classic frag throw and tagging victims.. I would not a pose cooking frags however..but even that might upset the balance... Bring back the excitement of the game mode "execution" and add a new mode with 32v32 or 64v64 with a battlefield size map filled with trenches houses and estates.... Locusts should literally crawl out of grub holes when they spawn and cog should be dropped off out of helicopters... I also would not mind...and bear with me.. I am a saints row 1 fan as we'll.. I suggest adding a new "quick switch " mechanic where u can lancer then quickly switch to the shotgun for a 1 pump... Or even a snub-shot tie combo... I am by no means telling you what to do..just giving my suggestions..
no Phil Spencer said next game of gears of wars would be a rts game he said on twitter today
you know gears as an rts could work just like halo wars did.
