Gears Of War Multiplayer Details

A few Gears Of War multiplayer details have emerged via a recent article in Electronic Gaming Monthly.

* Multiplayer Modes: Warzone: 4v4 Elimination
* Assassination: Your team needs to kill the opposing team's leader
* Execution: You must perform an execution mode to finish off your opponent A few other tidbits

* Other: Ranking is by points, not kills. You do get points for each kill, but you also get scored for executions, reviving teammates, melee hits, chain saw kills, head shots with the sniper rifle, doing any type of damage, or grenade-tagging someone.

* Each of the eight multiplayer maps has a certain theme to it (Mansion: destructible cover with the ratty old couches; Gas Station: explosive sections of the level; and so on). Train Station's gimmick is a speedy locomotive that barrels down the middle of the stage every minute or so, killing everything in its path.

* When a teamate dies they enter a "bleeding out" phase where they can be revived unless the timer runs out or they are "executed". This is for SP and MP

* Single-player achievements can be earned in co-op:
o The Nuge: Kill enough people with Torque bow
o Cluster Luck: Simultaneous grenade kills
o Is it a Spider?: Grenade tagging
o 100,000 online kills
o Collecting dog tags scattered around campaign

The 7 Best Xbox 360 Games - Console Exclusives Win the Day

The Xbox 360 was a fantastic console in its day with some truly classic titles, but what are the seven best games for the console?

DrDoomer2d ago

I'm pretty used to these lists being bad, but this one is particularly s#ite.

raWfodog1d 22h ago

I think Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon should have been added to the list.

BrainSyphoned2d ago

I'll go with,
Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Culdcept Saga, Shadow Complex, Ace Combat 6 with the flight stick,A Kingdom for Keflings, A World of Keflings.
Bonus Kinect Games: Happy Action Theater and Sesame Street.
*Skyrim was so bad on PS3 that it almost deserves to be #1*

Husker42c2d ago

I really loved Shadow Complex.

P_Bomb1d 19h ago

Ah yes, Shadow Complex! Good indies back in the day. Summer of Arcade. I enjoyed Trials Evolution as well.

DeusFever2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Was this made by a.i.? No human being would put Shadowrun, Fable III, and Splinter Cell: Conviction into a list of the 7 best Xbox 360 games.

Abnor_Mal2d ago (Edited 2d ago )

Would love to play Ace Combat6 on PlayStation, but Xbox decided to buy exclusivity and keep it off a competing platform.

The only mainline game I never played except for one level at a friends place. Game sold less than any other in the series if I remember correctly.

360 had Namco hitters AC6 and RR6... both quality titles. You should at least bust out the 360 for AC6 if you can score the flight stick. Its great.

Hofstaderman1d 21h ago

When the current gen XBOX offering is so lacking people need to refer to games released two generations back....

Profchaos1d 6h ago (Edited 1d 6h ago )

It's a nostalgia peice same reason we get thousands of YouTube videos on sega genisis. Something people have fond memories for but the era is long gone.

It's xboxs golden year imo it was their genisis years the time where they stuck it to the market leaders Sony.

BehindTheRows1d 4h ago

They stuck nothing. Sony screwed themselves giving Xbox an opening. They would have gotten the usual smack down if the PS3 had launched at $399 and was easier to develop for.

Sorry, CliffyB, But "Gears of War" Doesn’t Need A "God of War"- Style Reboot

Shaz from GL writes: “In an interview, Cliff Bleszinski says that he’d be interested in helping develop a Gears of War reboot akin to God of War. Unnecessary? I think so.”

Regardless, Gears of War gameplay feels outdated this day and age.

spicelicka29d ago

I completely disagree. Outdated in what way? There is literally no other cover based TPS multiplayer game like it and the core gameplay is so good that people still play Gears 1 today. I can't think of any games that has shotgun battles like Gears. The real issue is that there is simply no new audience for it, because the learning curve is so steep. It just needs to market itself better and the work needs to be done on the campaign side. Better to just split up the single player and multiplayer as two different projects and releases.

Also, this who "reboot" discussion isn't considering the fact that God of war doesn't have multiplayer as a significant portion of the game. Single player only games have a lot more freedom to change. With Gears you have to consider that there's an entire community still playing every day, so you can't just change the core gameplay balance. On top of that they can't dedicate as many resources to single player as God of war, because the budget has to be split with multiplayer.

There is no other one like it because there is no demand for that style of game, kinda obvious really. If there was an interest in gears style games the market would be flooded with them.

Extermin8or3_28d ago

It's clunky as fuck
