Mark Rein has popped into the official Epic forums again and left us some nice information.
The next title update for Gears of War is currently going through the certification process. We’ll have more detail about the update next week but I can tell you that in addition to fixing a whole bunch of glitches, and providing 720p for VGA users running at 1280×1024, it will contain a brand new multiplayer gametype called Annex.
Some folks who got to play it a few weeks ago said they think it is our best multiplayer gametype yet but I’ll leave it for you fans to decide what you think for yourself when it shows up soon on Xbox Live. More details next week.
So we get a new gametype and they get to fix some of the glitches that have been plaguing….. hardly anyone I guess.
Anyway new game types are awesome, this one seems to be a territorial control type of game which would be a big change from the current offerings.
Best of all this is once again free….
