GoW3: Forces of Nature DLC

March 5, 2012

Thanks to Blankman for the heads-up on this fly through of the new maps. It deserves its own post. If you want more info and video footage, just check the links included in the YouTube description posted under the vid.

5 maps for 800 pts for those who haven’t already bought the Season Pass. DLC 4 is due March 27th with Title Update 4 hitting somewhere around that time frame as well.

    Any new maps are fine by me. Not a huge fan of Jacinto, but the night / rain affect makes it feel “less wide open”. Raven down. Good (not great) addition to Gears 3, because we need some “fast maps”.

    The other three look / feel like a blur / blend of so many others. But I’ll take em.

    Any idea on a release date? Actually looking forward to playing Horde on these. Haven’t played that gametype in months.

    Man, How I wish Epic would bring back the map cycle set up feature from Gears 1. Having to go back to the lobby every time in order to make changes, really interrupts the flow / feel of Gears 3.

      March 27th, as far as I know. Raven Down may get pretty crazy with these Gears 3 ‘nades. It will be great to run around on new territory as well.

      Even though the Gears gamers number in the low tens of thousands, I still hope that after the Season’s Pass commitment is fulfilled, Epic releases a massive map pack with 15 or 20 classics from Gears 1 and 2.

    Maybe they will. If they do another season for APR-SEP, that would definitely bring back some of the old players to the game.

    Playlists will be an issue though, because depending on what they bring back they need to tweak them out.

    but that’s of course assuming Epic actually has commons sense.

    If they only have 20,000 playing the game at this point, I really don’t think they’ll be spending any more cash on keeping Gears 3 MP fresh.

    I really wish they would come up with a really interesting game type. Take a risk.

    Some ideas that just popped in my head

    1) A horde / tower defense, but instead of just one team human and one team bots, there could be either A) both teams human, but the Locust team also can send bots. B) Both teams have human players but can also send bots.

    2) Long linear maps ala BF3 Rush and a Rush type gameplay (with more players). With Vehicles.

    BTW: What is Epic working on now? Gears 4? Some new genre / style altogether?

    So pumped for this map pack. The weapon skins look awesome! The maps look really awesome as well. Hopefully Epic puts in 4x XP again for all of us trying to re-up! Im so close I can taste it!
