Single player DLC is on its way for Gears of War 2.
I second Legionaire2005!
Agreed. And I hope it's more of the classic Stop 'n' Pop gameplay. The vehicles and other gimmicky "variety" parts were done fine in Gears 2, but it's still the original Gears gameplay I have the most fun with. Give me more of that.
I feel exactly the same...
Epic really likes to milk their gamers. Getting to be as bad as EA.
Hope its single player/co op
I hope it's an actual last boss battle. Cuz the last fight was just so anti-climatic. Satellite it death with what two-three hits? Then instant win. I would rather run at it and chainsaw the veins of its heart. Heart for more BBBLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDD! !!!!
Youknow what I bet it is. Remember how when Gears one hit PC and they added content to the SP campaign... Probably something along those lines... Who knows though.
hell yeah bring it.
Awesome can't wait.
...first smart thing you've said all year.
Hopefully a better end boss cause the one now is WEAK.
I agree the end boss was fairly weak, but the the entire campaign was a great campaign. Felt like I was playing a movie, which I can only say personally a few times with single player games. personally the halo trilogy's campaign in each felt like a solid movie, imo.
Watch it will be some B-side levels from the first two games.
SINGLE player DLC? Hmmm...
I would LOVE some new Gears levels!
gears 2 campgin was sooooo goood if its true ill buy it on first day for sure
New single player content? Sounds cool. But it won't be free.
Of course not, but I don't think anyone is reading this expecting it to be free. With the exception of Burnout, pretty much no console DLC is free. And with the game having sold as well as it did, there's no reason for Microsoft or Epic to send out free DLC when clearly many many gamers would pay for it.
Hopefully they add some new features...maybe some new weapons, characters etc etc. On another note, I have a feeling that the single player will have to do with E-day, which would be pretty wicked.
I hope this single player DLC will be a prequel telling the story of Marcus Fenix not following his order to stay put and his search for his father.
Gears 2 still curb stompin the competition
I heard it will be the war for immulsion so human vs human prequel before gears 1
IM ALL IN BABY *spoken in the voice of the COLE TRAIN!!!!!!!!WHOOOOWHOOOOOO
We'll find out what happened to Dizzy.
good one find out what happened between gears 1 and 2. Isnt there a 7 month time between them?
dizzy come riding in on a Brumack, "YEEEEHAWW!" I doubt it, but I was just throwing it out there.
they are telling that story in the Wildstorm Comic series that started in October of 08
Would be nice if they made the bots a little smarter so they would be a challenge or at least so they won't kill themselves with the big weapons.
so many possibilities. whatever it is, I hope it fills in the gaps in the storyline. a prequel would be nice.
I remember a news post months back where one of the guys from Epic talked about bringing DLC with something like final bosses or endings because they didn't want people renting or buying their games as pre-owned copies. I guess this is the reason you got free maps when you bought the game new and I assume that this single player DLC will have you fighting the Locust Queen as she got away.
damnit! sold it last week along with codwaw and rsv2. maybe i'll play it at a friend's.
Hope so. More Gears 2 = very happy me.
I hope this is true. I figure it would be about Dizzy...but there is a lot to explore...Pendulum Wars? Marcus saving his father? And some say Gears has 'no story'......
Single player DLC for a game like this? Never thought I'd see the day!
Bring it on! I enjoyed the heck out of the single player. I'm just not a big fan of the MP in Gears.
this will probably be the biggest download to feature on xbox live!probably 3.5GB of data or more!it will be the beginning of digital distribution on xbox live of a full 360 games!lets hope so!M$ already working for the next generation on digital distribution!the future starts now?!
Wow, let's not jump to conclusions. Most likely it will use largely graphics, textures, and animations already on the disc, which is what takes the most space. Plus installing the full game to your hard drive takes something like 5.5 gigs, and if you think this DLC will be 2/3 the size of the base game you're dreaming. I doubt this will be more than a gig in size. No need to panic, 20 giggers.
Gears of War 2 writier Joshua Ortega basically confirmed that single player DLC is on its way for Gears of War 2. When asked of single player DLC at NYCC 09 he said: "Keep watching. You won’t be disappointed." This leads gamingfront.net to assume that sometime in the near future this DLC will be on its way. We’ll keep you updated.
i will not be buying it. i hope M$ is not counting on digital distribution! the hardware problems will follow them. my 360 is broke and i am not buying a new one!!! quality is what they do not have!!!!
Working on new map packs and bug fixes are cool. But adding on SP? No thanks. Please work on gears 3. I feel the same way about GTA4s DLC.
....probably sure that they will be working on Gears 3 behind the scenes already. It will be a nice addition to keep us going until then though if this does turn out to be true. Since I loved Gears 2 campaign (appart from the ending) I am really looking forward to this. (If true) I do kind of agree regarding GTA4's DLC, they should just focus on GTA5.
gears of war 4 everrrrr!!
This would be a very welcomed addition to a great game.
