Gears of War To Be Fully Co-Op

God bless Cliffy B. Over at Rewiredmind.com, their man in Barcelona has apparently confirmed with Cliffy that Gears of War is full co-op. Not tacked on co-op missions, but the entire game, playable co-operatively with beer and your buddies.

-Playable co-operatively with beer and your buddies-. That's what im talking about!. let the kids spend a night at a friends house cuz it's Gow night. I can see it now couples and company fighting over the controller(s).

ahhh YES, online and offline co-op.

I'm not gonna be a fanboy about this, I'm seriously dissapointed in Epic for not having more than 8 people online. 16 would of been perfect, but 8 will still be awesome. More would of been a lot better though.

8 person multiplayer will be fine. With only 8 players, there will be higher polygon counts for the characters and more detail. If you were to have, say 32 players, then the developers would have to seriously cut back on character detail to make it run smoothly with a consistant frame-rate. Maybe once developers are accustomed to the 360 programming enviroment, they'll be able to display higher detail with more players online.

See this is what I wanted for GRAW co-op throughout the game. I am not a big fan for seperate co-op missions, because normally they dont look even close to the single player or play as fun. I am using GRAW again as an example.. Halo and Halo 2 allowed for full co-op and it was the best I hope GOW's full co-op can match up.

I love co-op it's a good thing to do with a buddy this is good news

Switch and PS5 owners are gonna love this.

Stuart575643d ago

Every article, console fanboy trite, all these years later. Let me explain it AGAIN, in simple terms for the fanboys. Sentient human gamers do have their preferred platform, however they will buy and own multiple platforms so they can enjoy the games they want to enjoy. I own and have owned multiple platforms, Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft and now Valve, simply to enjoy a wide range of games across a broad spectrum of platforms. It's great. You don't have to pick a 'team' and cheer them on through thick and thin, dissing the other 'team'. And for you 'VenomUK' to state 'Switch and PS5 owners are gonna love this', proves that you're a bit behind. Learn, enjoy, live, develop, trust and coexist if you can, life is better that way.

Well said.
This is why i never understand fanboying over hardware. This is not like a sports team, its just hardware. Why some people have this mentality to pick a side and stick with it and refuse to look at other platforms, therefore depriving themselves of games that are only available on those platforms. They are suppose to be gamers after all?

FinalFantasyFanatic43d ago

It's practically guaranteed to come to PC as well, if that's the case, I might pick it up after it gets a discount or two.

Thank goodness for pro gamer companies like Microsoft.... It's about time we unified platforms where now only corporate suits benefit! Pro gamers all the way. Thanks Microsoft!

Yup ... bring Gears 2, 3 Judgement as well as Fable II and Halo 5 to PC

phoenixwing43d ago

Online portions would be a bonus.

FinalFantasyFanatic43d ago

I'm really shocked that Halo 5 still isn't on PC yet, almost everything is ported over and that's the only Halo game that hasn't been ported.

Profchaos44d ago

Take it with a grain of salt this leaker has been wrong many Times

The connection has been rumoured in the past so there's some credibility but it's more if it's actually in testing or not

Father__Merrin44d ago

tell u what gears 3 on series x same 360 game but in 4k and 60fps is a dream it looks crystal clear

Sciurus_vulgaris44d ago

The Series X enhanced versions of Gears 3 and Judgement can at times look like Xbox One titles.

Concertoine43d ago

Yeah i got into Gears 3 multiplayer last year. People still play it a lot. Tons of maps and looks great with the 60 FPS.

Brazz44d ago

It would be funny to see Gears of War collection on Nintendo Switch.
