Just wondering if there was gonna be a spectator mode in Gears? cuz i've played alot of unreal tournament and there is that awesome free 'ghost-like' camera i like to call it... Cuz as much as i love going up against people online, I also enjoy watching it (and also it would help the production of Errors of war ^_^)

So I was wondering if there was gonna be a Spectator mode in Gears?
Thanks.

I could see that being abused unless you're put into a random game.
A player could join a friends game go into spectator mode and tell his friend where the enemy is.

yes there is a spec mode, but u can't move around, just switch players and camera angles, go here http://gearsrealm.com/gallery/GoW+%40+E3+-+Multiplayer/GoW+%40+E3+-Multiplayer+-+46.jpg and check some screenshots of spectateing

Ya, most games it like that... i wouldnt be completely shocked if they did have a free-roaming spectator mode for people who havnt joined any team...

I saw this image:

And it looks like its 'free' camera, so im kinda interested if you can do the same type of free look from the Unreal Tournament games. But now my other question is.... can you get rid of that "Spectating, Cycle Cameras" little icons...

Come on Epic! give us a heads up on this one! ^_^

EDIT: The site doesnt work for some people, heres the other link

Take a closer look at the spec screenshots. In the top left and right it says cycle player cameras and cycle SPECTATING cameras. Im willing to bet that they have cameras in every map set up so you can cycle through and watch the action from different angles, and then if you get bored of that you can switch from player to player cameras.

I like player cameras. That way I cn see how the snipers or best players rack up their kills rather than waiting for thm and guessing where they are. Besides if some n00b with a machine gun gets killed by somebody with a pistol at close range I wanna see it and laugh :)

that is gears of war not gears of war 2. thats the old gridlock...and well it says gow not gow2.

For gow2 it will be only for games that have no respawn. and its a dead cam check on the vids on my link! you have free roam of the maps at differant camera angles. you can also take screenshots while dead to later upload to a seperate proxy server much like halo 3.
