Gears of War, Hidden Fronts Multiplayer Map Pack
Posted by XanTium | May 1 17:59 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From the press release:


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.

Excellent!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif . Wish it was free from the start but I like the game enough to buy the pack as soon as it's released. Should make getting the 10,000 kills a little more interesting biggrin.gif .

expensive... and I thought it was supposed to be 9 maps not 4. Maybe 12 as we originally thought...

Should be fun though if the subway can be accessible or to have it move...

I'd like to see some new guns with the pack considering it's 800msp

welll...here's another thing i won't be using, i pay 60 dollars for the game and i'm not willing to spend anymore of my hard earned money on a few maps, these people should try charging for a mild update on a pc game..so how many peopel would pay

I'd buy it if they are going to fix the HOST problems (HOSTS having an advantage). If not, I will just wait till it is free!

what sucks about this situation is epic wanted the maps to be free, microsoft is making them charge! im going to buy them, but only to support epic (and i will play the hell out of them heh). i wish msft didnt get any of the proceeds.

I just paid for the R6vegas maps and its a couple of new crappy maps and then some that are just redone (killhouse redux).



No mas for me. The old maps are great. Just wait until you have to buy multiplayer altogether later.



They'll give you one map (the hook) and give you the "choice" to upgrade later for a nice fee.



Thats essentially what they are doing now except you get more than one map with the game. That will soon fall to 4 maps included, then 3, then 2.....


To tell you the truth im having more fun with the Wii anyways.


The 360 is as high maintenance as a woman who keeps asking you for your credit card.

800 ms points for 4 maps are they high 400ms points should be the going rate for maps I will wait till they are free, I don't play much multiplayer anyway.

So much for them swearing they would never charge for maps and addons. This is why microsoft is loosing costumers and support. They keep screwing everyone over, going off the people I know 360 is going down, very fast.
