Free Gears of War maps

Hidden Fronts map pack available now - for free!

After clocking up almost 500,000 downloads for a fee, the Hidden Fronts map pack for the awesome Gears of War is now free.

For absoluty no money at all, you can get your hands on four new maps. Perfect if you've just picked up an Elite with the massive hard drive and are looking to startin filling it. Here's the blurb:

  • 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
    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.

Oh and don't forget that a much meatier Gears of War is coming to Vista this November with three new(er) multiplayer maps, a new(er) multiplayer game type, Game Editor, five new campaign chapters and DirectX 10 support.
