New Gears of War Multiplayer Maps on 5/3

Posted by: Dan at 5/1/2007 10:25 AM
On May 3rd, four new Gears of War Multiplayer maps will be hitting Xbox Live in the Hidden Fronts Multiplayer Map Pack. The pack will cost 800 MS points in the four new areas: Bullet Marsh, Garden, Process and Subway. 

Bullet Marsh: In this Kryll-infested swamp, an old generator still powers the area lights. A few stray bullets could easily knock out the generator, leaving combatants to fend for themselves against the Kryll.
Garden: This overgrown and crumbling conservatory still has a working fertilization and pesticide system. This system can pose a serious hazard to anyone who ventures into the greenhouse without first venting the air.
Process: Teams must fight for control of this subterranean Imulsion processing plant, still active despite the cessation of the Pendulum wars.
Subway: Timgad's Central Subway station used to serve as a central hub for commuters. Now the tunnels are crawling with Locust. 

One other note, the maps will become FREE on September 3rd 2007, so the question is whether four months of new multiplayer play is worth the $10....


Recon reports are in. Stop. Front line surveillance indicates Locust movement. Stop. Four new sectors now under enemy control. Stop. Do we engage? Stop. Awaiting orders. Stop. 

End transmission?
 

On Thursday, May 3, at 9 a.m. GMT, Xbox LIVE gamers should ready their weapons and prepare for battle as Gears of War, rated M for Mature, releases four new action-packed multiplayer maps in the thrilling Hidden Fronts Multiplayer Map Pack. For 800 Microsoft points, COG soldiers and the Locust Horde will clash once again for control of these four dynamic new areas, including Bullet Marsh, Garden, Process and Subway.  

Bullet Marsh: In this Kryll-infested swamp, an old generator still powers the area lights. A few stray bullets could easily knock out the generator, leaving combatants to fend for themselves against the Kryll.

Garden: This overgrown and crumbling conservatory still has a working fertilization and pesticide system. This system can pose a serious hazard to anyone who ventures into the greenhouse without first venting the air.

Process: Teams must fight for control of this subterranean Imulsion processing plant, still active despite the cessation of the Pendulum wars.

Subway: Timgad's Central Subway station used to serve as a central hub for commuters. Now the tunnels are crawling with Locust.

The Hidden Fronts Multiplayer Map Pack will explode onto Xbox LIVE Marketplace on May 3 for 800 Microsoft Points as gamers steady their aim, pull the pin from their grenades and get ready to battle once more! All four of the new maps will be made available at no cost over Xbox LIVE on Sept. 3, 2007.
