New Gears Maps March 6, 2007

Posted by dpcough in GDC 07, Rumors.
trackback

A rumor has started about three new Gears of War maps and weapons. I’m a bit puzzled by weapons but it will be nice with a few more weapons and maps. I’m not sure if these are true but the trusty Rumor Finder of Live Gamer (or a hoax by Elite Gunner IV) says they are so let’s wait and see if they are announced at GDC this week.

UPDATE Xbox 360 Fanboy did some more searching and found out that a rumor from EGM states that maps and some other downloadable content would be released. There are three maps and three weapons below, something tells me that Elite Gunner IV wasn’t lying. And also the achievements will be changed so you can earn them in player matches also, hopefully that does happen because ranked matches can’t be played with friends.

Weapons

1. Flamethrower (Confirmed)
2. Plasma Canon (Confirmed)
3. Dual wielded Uzi (In development)

Maps

1. Locust Cavern (Night)(Confirmed)
2. Locust Cavern (Day)(Confirmed)
3. Suburbs of Sera (Confirmed)

Coming March 12, 2007

They say there will be three new weapons, consisting of a plasma cannon, dual-wielded Uzis, and a flamethrower. A m-f-ing FLAMETHROWER! I think the best game in the world just got, ooh, about a million times better. […]

FUCK YOU YOU LYING LITTLE BITCH THERE WILL BE NO UPDATE EXCEPT THE UPDATE THAT ILL KILL YOU

14. DOORBUSY - March 11, 2007

you are lying little whores there is not going to be shit bitches!!!!

15. Ravanofdarkness - March 11, 2007

I Heard about this Rumor about 3 new maps and new weapons but come on guys Epic Games would say something about the Updates a week earlyer they did that with the other 2 maps so this is total bullshit.

16. Sir Daniels - March 11, 2007

WHATS UP BITCHES

17. BuTTcLoWn - March 11, 2007

i take it in the ass like a champ.

18. JJ77669 - March 11, 2007

now now thats all be like grown ups

19. alex - March 12, 2007

well its march 12th still no new stuff i think they may be pulling our leg a bit

20. zOMG RAY - March 12, 2007

im on my way home, its gonna be 3:00 PM (plus or minus 20-30 mins) and im gonna check it out. if theres no download, then we know its just a bunch of shit. so lets hope gunner didnt screw up.

21. electric hellfire soloist - March 12, 2007

well… there is no update. im disappointed. and wuts all this crap about “confirmed”? if its confirmed, tell us how its confirmed before just saying so. if there’s a rumor that a site or group of people make up, epic should step in and say that there wont be any of this or that untill then ect. im sure that there are just people out there who like to make up rumors to make people excited and then ruin it for everyone when it doesnt come out. if i were on cliffy b’s buddy list, id totally ask him… not that he’d answer.

22. mofo812 - March 12, 2007

this is bullshit

23. Ravanofdarkness - March 12, 2007

HITLER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

24. NBK-Sephiroth - March 12, 2007

is there anyone online with antything other then “childish”obsenitys or somthing intellengent to say?i’m begining to think not only morons and dumbasses who strive for some kind of atteion(so what if my spelling is a bit off at least i can ask a honest question)look i have been trying to find soild leads about the “new weapons and maps”however i would be even more delighted if the jerks at gears of war HQ got off thier asses and fixed the glitch problem so i can start playing ranked matches again or even a regular game with out worrying about some skilless fu**tard slide glitching,chainsawing me with a shot gun or shooting automatic sniper rounds at me i have said it a hundred times…”people who glitch HAVE NO BUSINESS EVER PLAYING A FU***** game.so if anyone who reads this works for the people who made gears of war i beg you please do somthing about the glitchers who play ranked and normal games before you make any new weapons or maps

i would love to have 3 new weapons and 3 new maps for gears of war it has started to get a little boring at times playing with the same weapons and the maps are starting to get boring to.

45. Rude Ru - March 24, 2007

rude ru is the name, and gears of war is the game!
Gears of War when i first played it amazed me, online was even better, although i was very crap at it from the start. Its the fucking bollocks man, i love using shot gun to kick ass. (Harse!)

So dudes, there is no update, it is al bollocks, i know lol!
Obviously think of it like this, new maps of course, but characters and weapons, why would epic do this for? Gears 2 is in the making, so wat the fuck?
Also all you poor people who cant afford PS3, and wont even look at it cause u have the x box, you are missing out, i have both and PS3 is better graphics, u can tell, its like another step up!
Wezley Coop-Turd knows this.
Anyway, glitchers should be shot! Fuckers,

If you want to play, then u know name!

Rude Ru

46. Josephina - March 25, 2007

wellllllll ive been hearing about this for many days now and the supposed date of march 12th is obviously BS, but i have some sneaking suspicion that this stuff will be released on the 27th. why??? xbox live is being shut down for 14 hrs. from 1 am till 3 pm (i think… ^_’) and shivering isles, the expansion for tes 4: oblivion, comes out on the 27th, and so i believe that they are shutting down the servers to get all this hubbub up and make sure it doesnt crash like gears did for 12 hrs a few months back and like it almost did when they released the new gears maps (btw imao raven down suckks assmo) you dig?? unless there is some confirmed reason that the servers will be down on the 27th that idk about, then this is my bet

locust cavern @ day and nite would be pretty frickin sweet

suburbs of sera would be awesome too. like if i was the ppl @ epic, i would make citizens run past evry once in a while from something in the background or sumthing to give it a sense of actually being there when the locusts attack, u no??

flamethrower…. idk it might be ok cause id love to roast ppl and watch them burn to the ground personally, but i think it would be uber cheap once ppl figured out exactly how to use it and when they eventually find a way to glitch it like the chinsaw glitch (haha, chainsaw, not “chinsaw” ^_’) so idk

plasma cannon… believable and ok it would also be cool to see people get atomized by plasma, but then again it could wind up being cheap and i agree w/ whoever up there said that it is full of crap cause imulsion is gears of war’s “thing” but plasma is still believable

dual uzis……… i almost 110% believe that they would make this weapon. why?? cause lately, the stuff that epic has done with gears has sucked hairy gooches, dont u agree(lol)?? uzis, in real life, spray bullets wherever the f**ck they want, so double uzis would be acceptable u would hardly evr be hit with one if they made it realistic which i think they would….

so lets just wait and see if my theory is true.. probably not, that would be just my luck ^_’

sry for the long comment too, 12:15 @ nite makes me write like a nut

47. weeping camel - March 26, 2007

i feel that this update will be most epic,it should indeed add intensity to most of the rounds.

48. sadsadsada - March 26, 2007

I also heard that they might be releasing a rapid fire shotgun. I’m not sure if it’s true but that would be cool. Of course it won’t be as powerful as the pump shotgun but I can’t wait.

49. adam - March 27, 2007

hold on march 12 has passed already…. do u think that they will be updating this when xbox live is down for 14 hours???

50. weeping camel - March 27, 2007

ya they are updating it when they shut everything down

51. weeping camel - March 27, 2007

where did you here about the auto shogun? that would be so sick.

52. adam - March 28, 2007

auto shotty would be crap

53. adam - March 28, 2007

so any way if elite is wrong i will find him and shoot him

54. nate - March 28, 2007

hmmm. nothing new for gears…that was way too long for Live to be down. i sat on major nelsons blog for like an hour waiting for it to come back online. one thing i did notice while hosting a gears ranked match was that i could hear some of the other players on the other team while playing and my teammates could hear me when they died and told me where the other teams players were. it was nice…won three ranked matches in a row before hopping off. they probably should have done something to fix that. oh well

55. David Jacques - March 28, 2007

I am sick of the F**!@#@ RUMORS!!! When are the new weapons and maps coming out. I have been waiting for a couple of weeks for this to happen and it hasn’t. My friends said on my friends list on Xbox live {Xbox 360} that they were supposed to update the Xbox live Marketplace last night 3/27/07. Thanks.

56. Josephina - March 29, 2007

well my theory was wrong….. as usual

i guess we have to wait and see when new stuff will come out……

psh, probably wont

57. New Gears Update « Live Gamer - March 31, 2007

60. Elite Gunner VI - April 5, 2007

I’ve stated several times (on several other sites) That the update has been with-held due to a last minute call for a new game type. The game type is called “Annex” mode. It will all be packaged together and due for release in Mid July.

Stay tuned…

61. B-kop (gamername) - April 7, 2007

That may not be true they also said that there was going to be a 2x scope sniper rifle and a scoped torque bow and then something else but im not too sure about the maps you might be right about those

62. Zach - April 7, 2007

The new game type is supposidly coming out on the 9th but that is not set in stone. It is the 7th and the update is still in MCP (microsoft certification process). I am guessing the 15th or even the 20th as a release date.

Annex is a hell of a game type. and the maps are supposidly being held for afte the WCV to end. They are supposed to appear in the finals for the GoW part in WCV so nobody knows the map. After that they will be out for download. or so its been said.

you are so retarted if they made new weapons then it would fuck the whole fuck the whole game in the ass hole by the way ghettomeister is my gamertag if u wanna play sum gears

84. Coyote - April 22, 2007

I doubt this. Those weapons aren’t exactly very Gears-ish anyway. Flamethrower is slightly possible; it’s horrifically destructive. A plasma cannon? Gears is too “earthly” for that. And uzis? Yeah right! What would even be the point?

85. Magus JCF - April 22, 2007

hey DP! i know your room is flooded, but you’re on N4G. niiice.

http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/News-37797.aspx
hes right check out this link

97. asdfa - May 6, 2007

to killa:

He’s wrong. The maps you’ve shown are the four new maps just released in the new patch, and they don’t resemble the maps that were described in the post on this web site one bit. Also, no new weapons were added.

Epic Games has stated that no new weapons will be released. Gears of War 2 will have new weapons, new characters, and new maps. So just wait for that.

98. killa - May 8, 2007

the new weapons realease in july and yeah he was wrong about the maps but theres still new maps

oh yeah does anyone have any my coke reawrd points
if u do just mail them to my email drumlisters@yahoo.com or just write em on this
