Four New Maps for Gears of War this Thursday
Posted by Jay on Tuesday, May 1, 2007
The good news: A new map pack for Gears of War, named Hidden Front, will be coming to Xbox Live this Thursday.
The bad news: This map pack costs a whopping 800 points. Fear not though if you don’t want to shell out that many points on this pack. It will be available for free download on September 3.
Details on the new maps:
- 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.
