Heya Everyone. I've been speculating as to where certain multiplayer maps are in the Sera universe. For example, Avalanche is probably near landown. These are just my speculations, but feel free to help me out, debate them, or add on to the list. This is just a fun little activity I've made for myself, and I thought I'd share my results with you all.
Gears Of War 2:
Avalanche - I'm guessing this map is in Landown, based on all of the Snow that time of the Year. Also, some of the buildings look identical to the ones found in Landown.
Security - This area resembles the Security area of New Hope in Act 3 of Gears of War 2. Could this are possibly be based off of that?..
Pavilion - Probably takes place in Jacinto, based on the Architecture of the buildings. Additionally, It shares the Jacinto Map's symmetry, and also has a similar palette.
Blood Drive - I'm gonna go ahead and Say this takes place inside Jacinto, Due to the main building having banners saying "Jacinto Medical international". This is probably the same hospital as from the first level in the campaign.
River - This could be a Spring-time Landown Actually. The Mountain Geography and trees in the Background seem to match the ones found in Landown, and like Avalanche, the building architecture is similar.
Stasis - Easily the Sires hatching bay from New Hope facility (Act 3)
Hail - I have to honestly say that this is probably in the New Hope Medical Facility of Act 3. The Razorhail is not a big clue though. However, the presence of Trains, Tarps, and similar building structure as the facility give me only one conclusion.
Ruins - Reminds me a lot of nexus, actually. The Immulsion and Locust Architecture is a dead giveaway, but if you look up above, you see that you are underground.
Jacinto - The Title for the Map gives it away. Obviously, this map takes place in Jacinto, but the Architecture and symmetry of the map helps to build the argument.
Day One - This is the Map seen in the Cutscene of E-day at the beginning of the game. I couldn't find anything about what city this might be, so speculation abounds this one.
Canals - I really cannot say anything about this map in particular. I might have to go back and play Gears 1 again to see if I can spot it's geography anywhere. :/
Gridlock - Maybe Ephyra? Like I said, I'll have to go back and Examine Gears 1 again...
Mansion - Honestly, This looks a lot like the East Barricade Academy from Gears 1, (Where Adam Fenix's estate was located) (Act 4).
Tyro Station - Obviously, this one was based off of the Tyro Depot from Gears 1.
Subway - Ephyra maybe? I'm not entirely too sure. :X
That's all I have for now. Discuss?
