Gears of War: New Multiplayer Game Type

The next title update for Gears of War is currently going through the certification process. Epic will have more detail about the update next week but I can tell you that in addition to fixing a whole bunch of glitches, and providing 720p for VGA users running at 1280x1024, it will contain a brand new multiplayer gametype called Annex. (Gears of War, Xbox 360)

Hey GaMr
What are you doing posting this good news for the 360? aint you supposed to be some sort of a rabid Sony fanboy!? (note the sarcasm) LOL!

LOL
Its all good. They can call me whatever they want. But I cant deny the fact.

a new game type is nice....
but id like to see atleast 5 more maps come out for this game!!! maybe not all at once but by the end of this year
Boink  +   2919d ago
good
I don't care how many maps they have, they need more game types.

All I want is FRIENDS in ranked games... some sort of party system..

crossing fingers
Boink  +   2919d ago
I hope that never happens
all the freaking leveling up in halo2 was completely annoying.

unranked matches, no problems, friends in ranked matches=abuse.

Some folks who got to play it a few weeks ago said they think it is our best multiplayer gametype yet but I'll leave it for you fans to decide what you think for yourself when it shows up soon on Xbox Live. More details next week."

"Ohh...OK?"
So ummmm this is just more downloadable content and stuff which will be accessible on XBL?
zonetrooper5  +   2919d ago
I can't wait for this, the new Halo 2 maps are coming out on April 17TH and then its a new Gears of War update and maybe soon the Halo 3 Beta will be released.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   2919d ago
yeah
It's a good time to be paying for things that should have been included in the game...

Resistance got three new game types last week...for free. Beat that MF's!!!
kmis87  +   2919d ago
This update IS free, and it's not like Resistance didn't have glitches in multiplayer that needed to be patched too. For a while there Somerset was worthless because people kept glitching out of bounds and then sniping people who weren't cheating.

I just think it's good that both Insomniac and Epic are trying to help out the people who bought and continue to play their games. We should all be thanking both of them, not bashing anyone.

Shotgun usage
I hope they take away the cheap shotgun use, i.e. the "bang" and your dead! Too many cheap people that dont like to be challenged... They want everything handed to them.... Newbs.
Rasputin2011  +   2918d ago
"For real dude"
Because of all of the fukers always using the shotgun is why I have been playing RB6:Vegas online there is more strategic cat & mouse there not just let somebody see where you are and hide and then blast them with the shotty.
candystop  +   2919d ago
Hopefully they add four player coop play or capture the flag!
Mighty Boom  +   2919d ago
What
This is not COD, its gears....
candystop  +   2919d ago
12.1 excuse me?
I never said this game was cod smart azz! And who the hell are you to say what kind of game gears is? It just annoying to post an opinion and some twit always try and start a stupid flame or my point's better than your point type of comment! If you don't like what a person say's just disagree and move on sh!t!
Boink  +   2919d ago
but he's right
something like capture the flag I just can't see working with grears, it's just the wrong type of game.

I'd like to see maybe some death match/everyone for themselves type of play. maybe some where you re-spawn and it's a race to "X" amount of kills.
Hayabusa 117  +   2919d ago
Expanded lobbies...because I've got so many friends who all want to play together, we never all get into the same room. At least 5 vs 5...I doubt it ould happen though.

Friends in ranked matches, but only on the same team to prevent cheating. New maps, new game types, new weapons, new multiplayer characters...heck, new menus while their at it.
Havince  +   2919d ago
will be intersting
im pretty much fed up of gears, i played it today for 1st time in like 3wwek and 2nd game had a guy doing a chainsaw glitch where he kills you with the chainsaw BUT doesnt do the animation. its things like that that p1sses me off. id rather play COD3
