Hey, I still haven't beaten the campaign. If anybody plans on being online later tonight and can take a break from Left 4 Dead, then I would appreciate a Dom (or a Marcus, if you're anal about that sort of thing) (and racist).

One more time: I'm in the last act, so close to being done. If anyone wants to help, I've hit a bug where AI-Dom just hides behind cover during a pretty big battle, and I keep getting raped in the nose for it.

NEW GEARS 2 MAPS, CAMPAIGN CONTENT COMING JULY 28 IN ALL FRONTS COLLECTION

Over 5 million gamers have battled the Locust Horde in Gears of War 2 since its launch last fall. To commemorate the milestone, Microsoft Game Studios and Epic Games are unleashing Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection, a compilation combining all previous Gears 2 game add-ons with seven all-new multiplayer maps and brand new campaign content. The collection hits retailers on July 28.

GEARS OF WAR 2: ALL FRONTS COLLECTION

The All Fronts Collection is a formidable mountain of Gears 2 content. Containing all of the Gears 2 map packs released to date?the Flashback Map Pack, Combustible Map Pack, and Snowblind Map Pack?All Fronts features the debut of Gears of War 2: Dark Corners, a collection of seven multiplayer maps and a never-before-seen deleted campaign chapter titled ?Road to Ruin.? In this deleted scene, Marcus and Dom return to the Locust Hollow in an action-packed encounter that can be played guns blazing or silent and stealthy.

A few quick notes on the seven new multiplayer maps in the Dark Corners pack:

Allfathers Garden: Don?t get caught up in the beauty?the sacred grounds of the Coalition founders can be a tremendously deadly place. Powerful weapons catalyze fast and furious action at this COG landmark.
Memorial: It?s all about the heavy weaponry in Memorial, set near the Eternal Flame at the Tomb of the Unknowns. Take a moment to remember your fallen comrades before using your flanking and evasive skills to take control of the Boomshot and the battle.

Sanctuary: Tight paths, blind corners, and an arsenal of weapons?the Locust-ravaged temple in Sanctuary is no longer the haven of reflection and remembrance it once was.
War Machine: In this abandoned train station, players need to master the Longshot, Mulcher, and Boomshot to advance the fight while evading fire from the platforms above.

Highway: Take the fight deep into the Locust Hollow in the complex passages of this underground highway system. Stick together, separate the enemy, and have an exit strategy ready, or it?ll be a one-way trip.

Way Station: In the limbo between death and ?processing,? you'll find Locust way stations like this one, filled with COG soldiers. Tread lightly and practice patience?it?s best to sacrifice firepower for stealth while navigating this minefield of hidden grenades.

Nowhere: Set in the middle of the desert, Nowhere is exactly how it sounds: barren and devoid of life. The open air and long lines of sight prove useful for Longshot devotees, but expect some fierce, close combat in the stairwell.

Also included are an introduction to ?Road to Ruin? from Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski, a custom Xbox LIVE theme, and a collectible Gears of War 2 poster and strategy guide. An incredible package valued over 3,600 Microsoft Points, available at retailers on July 28 for just $19.99.

For those of you already rocking the previously released Gears 2 map packs, Gears of War 2: Dark Corners will also be available for individual purchase and download from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 1,600 Microsoft Points.


Sounds like a good deal for $20. Another campaign mission is pretty cool too.

Thank God I held out on all the other maps. I might end up getting this if there's enough interest within the old Friends List.

Same here. I was just about to download the Combustible Mappack when at the last minute decided to wait untill tomorrow. I guess now I`m going to wait untill July. I`ll spend my points on Fallout 3: Broken Steel instead.

That screenshot looks awesome too. I`m guessing the deleted campaign mission takes place when Marcus and Dom are sneaking around underground, kind of like Frodo and Sam in Mordor.

I'll probably get this at some point if enough people plan on getting back into Gears Dos again. Otherwise I'm passing.

Most of the new maps are actually really well designed and fun to play. Allfather's Garden and Highway are especially good.
