  5. The Battle Rages on with the “Gears of War 3” Horde Command Pack Available 1st November First game add-on for the biggest blockbuster of 2011 introduces spectacular new maps and playable characters, along with an arsenal of Horde fortification upgrades Brace for impact! With more than three million copies sold in its first week, “Gears of War 3” is the biggest console exclusive of the year, and today Microsoft and Epic Games announced the acclaimed title is about to get even bigger with the Horde Command Pack game add-on, launching 1st November. Taking you deeper into the fight with three explosive new maps, three new playable characters, two new weapon skins, and additional achievements worth 250 Gamerscore, the Horde Command Pack also includes new fortification upgrades to help you mow down the Lambent and Locust threats in the fan-favorite Horde mode. Available for 800 Microsoft Points or for download automatically to consumers who have purchased the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass, which entitles you to the game’s first four game add-ons at a 33 percent discount, the Horde Command Pack includes: Three spectacular new maps: Blood Drive – The Jacinto Medical Plaza was overwhelmed by evacuated citizens after the government-sanctioned Hammer Strikes, and the ensuing riots quickly turned this safe haven into a dangerous inferno. An abundance of high ground and funneled choke points make this map a returning favourite to Horde. Rustlung – Once the pride of the Royal Tyran Navy, the foredecks of this decommissioned battleship are now riddled with bullet holes. Any team with the fortitude to hold the exposed central torpedo bay will find that the ship's Loader has been replaced with a battle-ready Silverback mech suit. Azura – This island resort was once the exclusive domain of Sera's educated elite, but the tranquil water gardens and lush foliage have become a hotly contested combat zone. Dual snipers overlook a powerful explosive weapon, while the defensive central platform may be your last resort of retreat. New fortification upgrades: · Command Center – A brand new type of fortification that allows you to call in fire support from sniper teams, mortar strikes and even multiple Hammers of Dawn. · Decoy Upgrade – A new fortification level that turns your decoy into an Onyx Guard bot that will fight in your defense. · Sentry Upgrade – This upgrade adds a fire bolt sentry that deals much more damage and is very effective against Berserkers. · Silverback Upgrade – This advancement allows you to upgrade your Silverback exo-suit with devastating rockets and extra levels of repair cost reduction. New characters: · Onyx Guard · Big Rig Dizzy · Bernie New weapon skins: · Team Plasma · Jungle Camo Also playable in Beast mode and privately hosted Versus matches, the Horde Command Pack promises to extend your “Gears of War 3” experience with countless hours of multiplayer mayhem on Xbox LIVE. Stay tuned for future game add-on announcements including new campaign and multiplayer content, bringing you more of the year’s biggest blockbuster later this winter. To download the first four game add-ons as soon as they are available at a discounted price, be sure to pick up the “Gears of War 3” Season Pass today for 2400 Microsoft points on Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
  6. Execution Hotel Old Town Gridlock Checkout King of the Hill (KotH) Mercy Drydock Old Town Trenches Team Death Match (TDM) Hotel Trenches Old Town Map I want to include: Gridlock (but I don't feel they are better than any of these) **The best information for us to gather right now is current strategies and how teams are abusing the Maps. If Teams are running 4 Players to 1 side of the Map every round in Execution, that’s an issue. If Teams are easily able to lock a team in Spawn on TDM or it becomes too difficult to take back a hill in King of the Hill, we need to be aware. In regards to settings, all starting weapons are fine. There is an issue with TDM and KotH Games going too long. It’s something we need to work on. Execution will be the 4 Rounds/4 Minutes. Use the “after pickup” weapon respawn option, but look to have those times increased very soon. Please comment on this ORIGINAL POST. Do not just list your suggestions! You're post should read, "I would replace this map with this map, and here is why." Thanks!

    Q&A with Rod Fergusson

    http://www.twitch.tv/epicgamesinc/b/296763512 From Epic Games and GCON: In his first Q&A since the shipment of Gears of War 3, Rod Fergusson is back to answer all of your burning Gears related questions. But, before we hit the Q&A side of things, Rod provides us with various stats, event idea announcements, and upcoming updates pertaining to their newest game! Let’s Start With The Stats The most played Horde Map in Gears 3 is Overpass. Rod also stated that this wasn’t the most popular map when it came to multiplayer and that when they were doing testing, the studio did a lot of testing on the map Dry Dock. Also, the percentage of players who have completed the first 10 waves of the new Horde mode is 56.4%. And finally, only 1% of the Gearheads have completed the Gears of War 3 campaign on insane difficulty. 89,394,000 waves of Horde have been played since the release of Gears 3. 6 million Horde matches have been played. Onto The Playlists The first playlist that Rod mentioned was Torque Bow Tag with the aim of getting that going this weekend with new and improved ways to manipulate the weapon spawns in game. They also want to make it to where you spawn with Torque Bows as well because in the last game, people went around using the shotgun or rifles which wasn’t Torque Bowie enough so fingers crossed for that. A Gnasher shotgun only event was mentioned. And finally the Classic Playlist topic pops in, but nothing is confirmed for that yet. Green Skin Frenzy! The Epic team is looking to find ways so that everyone can get their hands on the Liquid Green Metal Skins on an international level and potentially in other US promotions too. Rod suggests using all of your available social media sites (Twitter, Facebook, Epic Forums, etc.) to try and get these skins in the meantime. Talking the ”Horde Command Pack DLC“ DLC #1 as most of you know is tailored towards Horde. There is a new fortification called the Command Center and it will have 3 levels to it and is designed to be a “big red panic button,“ so to speak. When you are the last person in your 5 man squad and all you have left is this big red button and your trusty gun, you can go and press it to have these outside sources come in and assist you. The first level will be a Sniper team that will come in and start popping headshots for you. The second level will be a Mortar strike, which of course will make Mortars rain in on a specific location. The final level is a Hammer of Dawn strike on a specific location. Of course, you will have to build up to these levels. On the maps that aren’t Hammer and Mortar friendly (like Rustlung and Checkout), you will see Onyx Guard squads come in with Boomshot’s and Vulcan Cannons to mow down and blow up various enemies within the wave. You can checkout some of the gameplay footage from this on Tuesday of next week during X-Play on G4 (check your local provider for listings). Command Centers will be available on the shipped maps and the new DLC maps as soon as you download the update. The Sentry Gun has a new upgrade to it that includes flame shots to it. So, playing Beast on the 3 new maps, plus the old maps, and trying to run around with an Armored Kantus or Berserker is going to be a LOT harder than before. The Decoy has a final upgrade that can now turn it into a Onyx Guard bot that will follow you around and fight along side you in Horde. This is great for those who enjoy playing Horde alone. Finally, the Silverback has its new upgrade that now includes rockets and an upgraded white color to show that the Silverback is “elite” level. New Maps and Old Insights Of course, the 3 maps that will be included with the DLC are Rustlung, Blood Drive, and Azura. Behind the scenes information with Rustlung, it was originally supposed to be a morgue type medical facility. The torpedo bays in the middle of the map used to raise and create cover were originally supposed to be operating tables. But, because they weren’t digging it as a design and they liked how the Raven’s Nest was set up for the campaign, they decided to keep the name and just make it a map in the belly of the ship. Blood Drive was included because it was the #1 map played in Gears 2 Horde. Karried from the Epic Forums asked, “You guys stated that Blood Drive was played most frequently Horde map due to it being the brightest map. So, why did you reflect it to being night time?” Rod answered: We didn’t say that it was the main reason for it being played the most frequently due to its brightness, but due to its ability to hunker down and create a base within the nade room and those little hallways. If the person hosting a party has these maps, everyone inside the party gets to play on the maps. These maps will not be available to play on multiplayer right away, but it will be possible at a later date. Stay tuned for that information. New Characters and Skins! The 3 new characters you will get are Bernie Mataki, Big Rig Dizzy, and the Onyx Guard. You will be able to play as these characters in versus multiplayer right away. Chappe11e asked, “will the DLC multiplayer characters need to be unlocked before you can play with them?” Answer, no. Finally, 2 new weapon skins will be included and they are the Team Plasma skin and a Jungle skin. Get New Achievements, Like A Boss 250 points of new achievements are available with a focus on the cooperative modes – four will be for Horde mode and one will be for Beast mode. The Host With the Most (25G) – Host 5 players privately in Horde on 1 of the new DLC maps. Places to See, People to Destroy (25G) – Host 5 players privately in Beast on 1 of the new DLC maps. What Does This Button Do? (50G) – Raise the Silverback to its rocket upgrade and get 500 kills with the rockets to earn this achievement. It’s Hammer Time (50G) – Upgrade the Command Post to its 4th level and unlock the Hammer of Dawn fortification upgrade. Kill Locust Like A Boss (100G) – Go into any boss wave with all 5 members of your party as Onyx Guard characters and beat it on Hardcore difficulty. What’s Up Next? DLC 2 is tailored around the Campaign. It’s a brand new story with brand new characters ,and more details will be coming soon. General Q&A What’s happening about the Vengeful medal? They are looking into softening the requirements somehow, but no decisions have been made yet. Can we get weapon skins for other weapons like pistols, nades, etc? No. Can we see Shriekers in Beast? Potentially. But, after testing everything out before, it might not be likely. Will there be difficulty options for Horde and Beast in public? No. But, they can change it themselves up for special weekends or based on various stats about how people are coping with difficulty levels. Will you remove the timestamp requirement for the Domination achievement to unlock the Chrome Lancer? Yes. Can a Quick Match playlist style for Horde be added? Due to the segmentation of horde and not knowing the wave/map you are going into, this is not going to happen. How do Epic feel about the DBS? The DBS IS being looked into, so have faith. They are also wanting to test weapon swaps on various maps.
  8. Gears of War 3 Soars Past Three Million in First Week Sales and Propels Franchise Beyond $1 Billion Blockbuster finale to the award-winning trilogy becomes the biggest game of 2011 LONDON — 29 September, 2011 — The most anticipated video game of the year arrived last week with the worldwide launch of “Gears of War 3.” Following more than 22,000 midnight madness launch events, Microsoft and Epic Games today announced that the Xbox 360 exclusive sold more than three million copies worldwide in its first week since release, cementing “Gears 3” as the biggest game of 2011 and catapulting the franchise beyond one billion dollars in lifetime sales. In just one week, “Gears 3” has already grossed more than any 2011 video game to date. In addition to topping this year’s sales charts, the “Gears of War” franchise joins the elite ranks of only a select few game franchises to surpass one billion dollars in lifetime sales. Taking the milestone even further, “Gears” now stands as the first Xbox 360 exclusive franchise introduced this console generation to eclipse the billion dollar milestone. “‘Gears of War’ was the first killer app for Xbox 360, and the series has continued to contribute directly to the overall success of the platform ever since,” said Microsoft Corporate Vice President Phil Spencer. “‘Gears of War 3’ kicked off the biggest Christmas period in Xbox history, setting the standard for the kind of amazing, action-packed experiences gamers should expect on Xbox 360 this year.” Game modes like Beast and Horde 2.0, along with the addition of dedicated servers, has driven more than three million unique users to log onto Xbox LIVE to play “Gears of War 3” since launch. Hailed by critics as a “triumph” 1and a “masterpiece of exciting gameplay and emotional storytelling,” “Gears of War 3” has already garnered more than 50 perfect review scores and become the highest-rated Xbox 360 exclusive of the year.
  9. @quinndelhoyo TWEETED @mikedloss @arCtyC @Killa_KC Just give the game a shot with an open mind. Those GOWNation rules are a different game. Please, all vVv Gaming members, please support Epic Games position and approach the game with default settings!
  10. Seven day into Gears of War 3: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly The Good: It’s polished. It expands the multiplayer game types. Tons of people purchased Gears of War 3 during its first week, about 3 million people to be more specific. Perhaps most impressive is the fact that the game sold more than the opening weeks of both previous entries into the series combined. So, what is the bigger picture? Gears of War 3 claimed the largest launch of 2011 with their sales. Gears also grabbed the sixth biggest launch week of all time for the Xbox 360, just finishing behind Grand Theft Auto IV. The series is now on pace to sell over 8 million units, topping the previous benchmark of between 6-6.5 million set by the first two of the series. Dedicated Servers! This will allow Epic to gather data to make adjustments based on real game data, instead of what 8 self-appointed nerds think should happen. Thankfully, we no longer need to blame the whiners on forums for ruining this game. Now, if Epic tries to appease some vocal minority, I feel comfortable blaming Epic, as they now have the data collection means to get accurate information. Welcome to the 21st century! The Bad To be honest, there is not much wrong with this game. I have had a tough time finding things. I wish there were more levels to Beast mode. I wish that we didn’t need to wait for Epic to gather data and make adjustments Revives are a bit finicky. I think the game needs a better “revive detection” system. The Sawed Off does make me go “fuck!” every time I get killed, but I do love the fact that it’s in the game. The Ugly The people trying to create “competitive settings!” The mere fact that teen boys with hardly a high school education believe that the settings they come up with in a scrim environment compares to the millions of data points that Epic gathers is a reflection of their ignorance. Not only that, but this “competitive settings” community is equally obtuse. They seem to think that “default settings” means “settings that are default out of the box on day 1.” They willfully ignore that Epic will tweak these based on real data. I suppose if I was one of those nerds who believed that I was God’s gift to Gears, I would be running around claiming that I had the best “competitive settings.” It must be a real challenge for them to have to accept that their whining is a mere blip on the radar. I keep imaging Blizzard listening to IdrA on how to tweak SC2. In short, I do hope that MLG and Epic shut this crowd out. They should adjust the game based on real data. To be honest, I feel bad for Epic and MLG. They set up certain people like Arctyc to be a commentator, and in some way added credibility to his position. Now, his “contribution” is to make videos that drip with cynicism and sarcasm whining about the sawed off shotgun. If this is the best the “MLG” community can provide, I highly recommend that MLG distance themselves from this group. Sorry, but I have often found that sarcasm is the protest of the weak. I suppose that many in this competitive community feel weak, though . . .they are trying to recreate Gears 1, while the rest of us have moved on.
  11. Well I would like everyone to know that In my honest opinion Gears 3 is by far one my favorite games. They made this game really good and yes it has some issues but thats something that can be fixed. I love the competitive aspect of it and so far its just going awesome! Post you opinions of the game
  12. Let me start by saying that my intention in this post is to save some people some time. I’m sure some people will get upset, but I at least want to state that vVv Gaming’ s official position supports MLG’s position: I am hoping that everyone can understand that from a spectator’s point of view having “MLG Matches use exactly what is played in ranked matches” is critical to the growth and viewership of the game. We have to think about the spectator’s experience FIRST. How do we get someone who is playing Horde right now to tune into an MLG stream in 2012? THAT is the most important question. I know the designers at Epic get it. Quinn Delhoyo, level designer for Gears of War at Epic Games, said it best on Twitter: “@mikedloss @arCtyC @Killa_KC Just give the game a shot with an open mind. Those GOWNation rules are a different game.” The last thing we want as we are trying to grow this game’s competive spectator audience is to make the novice error of thinking a few execution scrims with a few players can come close to the millions of data points that Epic will have on the game. We don’t want to create a different game! So, what will happen with the game? Over the next several weeks, Epic Games will be analyzing the game data they get from the millions of players who play the game. They will use this data to determine what trends are developing on each map. From this, and from the map feedback that MLG provides, Epic will make minor tweaks (or maybe even major ones) based on the evidence they examine from the millions of in-game data points generated by the people playing it (this is important and worth repeating). Trust the data. Don’t be an elitist. Even worse, don’t be a skill-gap purist. Skill gap is not the only important factor. Again, think of the audience’s experience. For example, there are many things that could be done to professional sports to make them harder, but that does not make them better. Hockey fans didn’t like some of the changes to making goalie pads smaller and nets wider, but hockey survived. No matter what you hear, just know that we will always support MLG’s goals of making the game a huge success. If you hear rumors or people complaining, just let them talk. Don’t argue with them. Just trust that Gears of War 3 is in good hands. So, what CAN we do? I told Sundance that vVv Gaming’s official position was to “chose the 11 best game types and maps with default settings.” To which Sundance responded, “Right on the money.” Based on Sundance’s response, let’s examine what kind of testing we CAN do. There are 10 maps. Ten maps for 3 game types that have the potential of being solid, competitive game types: TDM, KotH and Execution. That is 30 potential combinations. Our job is to find 11 that work the best and really play them for awhile. If you play 1 map per day straight, it will take 30 days to test, and even that pace seems a bit unrealistic, but it’s a good starting point. More importantly, maybe even the most important thing that you can do is to PLAY the game. Fall into it. Enjoy it. Finish the campaign, play horde, play ranked and learn why the rest of the world loves Gears of War 3. Stop thinking like an MLG player, and start asking, “what makes this game fun for so many?” All players who aspire to be professional gamers must KNOW their audience. In order to know them, you first have to do what they are doing. Dare I say this? Try having fun with the game. I know I am! Here is a video to help explain things: http://penny-arcade.com/patv/episode/pro-gaming
