FREE Gears of War map pack coming

grars of warWell, the old saying goes that the best things in life are free and for Gears of War gamers, that means a free map pack. Microsoft is going to release the Hidden Fronts Map Pack at no charge starting September 3 on Xbox Live.

These maps were originally sold for a modest fee earlier this year, but Epic Games said that they would eventually be made free at a later time.

And that time is almost here!

So what will the maps be like? According to Microsoft:

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.


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.


Fight for control of this subterranean Imulsion processing plant, still active despite the cessation of the Pendulum wars.


Timgad ‘s Central Subway station used to serve as a central hub for commuters. Now the tunnels are crawling with Locust.

So for those who missed out, get ready to lock and load all over again.
