    Default Next title update almost here

    The next title update for Gears of War is currently going through the certification process. We'll have more detail about the update next week but I can tell you that in addition to fixing a whole bunch of glitches, and providing 720p for VGA users running at 1280x1024, it will contain a brand new multiplayer gametype called Annex.

    Some folks who got to play it a few weeks ago said they think it is our best multiplayer gametype yet but I'll leave it for you fans to decide what you think for yourself when it shows up soon on Xbox Live. More details next week.

    maybe the new gametype is like HQ in the call of duty series, reclaim a spot, and control it for a period of time until next spot presents itself and you have to go hold it.

    Or it will be like tons of spots to hold on the map and you gain points for holding the spots for that period of time, these spots are represented with maybe a color (red for locust, blue for cog) or maybe a flag (cog symbol or locust symbol). And you gain points for holding the territories.... this keeps the game in a fast pace to control more areas of the map but also means you have to spread out your team to control each area creating constant battle for positions.

    Sounds fun, cant wait to play it

    I'm guessing all that was already said is all that is going to be said right now.

    Let's not push our luck.

    Ok, having just read this thread, I take back what I said about "giving up" in the other thread. Hearing anything has lifted my spirits, thanks Mark and Epic.

    What you see in this thread is all the info we have.. We will get more next week.. after the MS certification process I am guessing..
    I am also guessing that they are not adding more info because MS might decide to limit the size of the update, in which case the content could poentially change..
    Remember MS wants EPIC to sell these updates to us.. Any update that is free and loaded with content will be hotly contested by MS..
    So EPIC has to be tight lipped about the content till MS lets it pass..

    WHAHAHAH! we are like a bunch of crack deprived junkies waiting for our next hit! Thanks Mark for the news of the fixes and the extra stuff.
    Hope Microsoft doesn't give you guys too much crap.

    Annex... Hmmm, maybe it will be kind of like the "close the hole" gametype some of us were discussing.
