What's been going on with the next Gears of War (http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3140408) update from Microsoft and Epic Games? Rumblings on 1UP Yours (http://podcasts.1up.com/) have suggested some turmoil behind-the-scenes, but the Epic VP Mark Rein's confirmed to the official message boards (http://gearsforums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?t=566619) their upcoming update has entered Microsoft certification and should be available soon -- for free. Rein promises more details on the update this week, but says it will include an all-new multiplayer game type entitled Annex -- " Some folks who got to play it a few weeks ago said they think it is our best multiplayer gametype yet" -- and the obligatory bug fixes.
Additionally, the quirky VGA problem for players wanting to run 720p at 1280x1024 has been patched up.

They should find a sponsor then. Those maps would cause mass traffic on xbox live and I can see them shivering a bit.

Would make both parties happy in the end if they could just get a sponsor.

If thats teh case it wont give the same value of points.


The new gametype might be a defend/attack. Ut2K4 had a gametype like that.
