Two new maps and a video available for download through Xbox Live Marketplace.
I've been looking forward to this. I hope they have the update out soon to, the mic issues are very annoying. Good find hep!
Point made. I call him Juvenile because that is what he is. (JUVENIE) How could this be lame.
Juvenile is jealous and a loser! He spends most of his day looking for bad news on the 360 and posting here! Anything 360 he just marks it lame!
Anyway, yeah I cant wait!
He feeds of the attention we give him. You see, Juevani is a very, very troubled young man. For him negative attention is attention to. So he waits for us to respond to his often ridiculous posts, so he can feel "special". So let's just ignore the poor fella so he doesn't get rewarded for his childish behavior.
Sorry if its taking a while to come up, the damm site is getting smashed from this news.
this is a legitimate question... Do you have to pay for this update?
Epic initially said that the updates would be no cost. I would venture to say that they spoke a bit prematureley.
10 to 1 this is NOT a free download.
already? Hasn't it been out for only a little bit? So what are they saying? The accual game released isn't big enough or complete that it NEEDS to release more material?
Guess it's good that they are accually making a point of themselves and saying sorry for releasing such a short game here have 2 more maps...
I am all for the new maps if its real but I want to hear Epic announce before I take this for fact. Plus if you read the article it says Discovery Channel is having a give away for 2 million MS points. The link they provided in the article leads to nowhere. For now I will hold my excitement. We know an update is coming but I am pretty sure that update is going to be more than just 2 maps, i.e...and actual patch too.
Looks like this might be the real deal after all. Read elsewhere that the link for the give away goes live on the 14th so makes sense why it came up as a future site,etc.
Anyway, one thing I do find interesting is the possibility of more maps, content and patch after this give away. Being the two maps are sponsored by DC, I am thinking they probably paid big dollars to get two maps for their deal. I still think Epic has more up their sleeve but don't want to steal the thunder of the DC giveaway.
two new MISSIONS (not maps) and theyre free to boot, thanks epic.
two new MAPS (not missions) !!!!!!!
also Dlacy13g, Mark Rein has "offically confirmed" on Epics forums that the news piece is real, and that an auto update will be released prior to the maps being offered.... so thats sounds great !
That is so awesome, Epic are gonna show many companies that there should be free maps.
is this maps live or story?
Or is it both.
man the maps are already so freaking perfect. I can't wait to get my hands on a couple more.
I think these are multi maps. Although I'd love to see more Campaign (who wouldn't!), you gotta remember that Epic already plans to make sequels to Gears. Let 'em save that content for the next full game, I sez.
Good that it is multiplayer maps cause it's not too many of'em
(could need some more)
but on the other side it's sad that it's not more campain. Well well i can't do anything else than wait for GoW2 or what the name will be. And by the way thanks for answering my question calderra
I've been looking around the Gears of War forum and Mark Rein has said that there will be more patches and more content after this is released.
The patch seems great. I can't wait to play these new maps and see some friends reaction to shorter melee distances for frags.
I think EPIC should sponsor a contest to create a future GOW multi map. Where contestants flesh out the map layout (weapons, bottlenecks etc) on paper and submit it to them. Drawings etc. One could pull any ideas or textures from the campaign and integrate them into a map.
Epic could retain all rights to it but give credit and some prizes to the winner or winners.
I for one would love a map set underground or outside right after the sunset with dark areas that kyrll could kill players.
More maps are great but Id much rather some new game modes. Deathmatch and CTF would absolutely rock in GOW. And of course the communication and lag issues are a pain and need to be sorted badly.
I was told the maps are free and kick a@@.. GOW is awsome and the maps they have already are sweet and 2 new maps already is nuts...
