    Default Next Gears Update

    Folks,

    The next Gears of War update is coming along nicely. We don't have a release timeframe for it yet but I just wanted to let you know we're making significant progress. In addition to the previously mentioned plan to improve roadie run we're also going to have new achievements relating to Annex and the Hidden Fronts DLC. Of course no title update would be complete without more exploit squashing and the ever-popular "general housekeeping".

    Very good to hear. May I recommend working on the flaw in the new roadie run which is going around corners. Also, congratulations on your 666th post.

    Mark, listen to me. Please.
    Whatever roadie run crap you have cooking up at the office, stop.

    Just put a switch in the options for "normal / superstickywalls". We don't want RR v3. We want the old one back. Thanks.

    Nice post count Mark . But I am glad that the update is coming though I am not playing this game but since I got back into it I haven't seen much glitching but I dunno I think the hype of the glitch is going away.

    I thought Cliffy said that we WONT be getting any more Achievements
    Unless it means modifying current achievements so that they count in Annex, then cool.
    But more achievements would be sweet, it will help me take a break from chasing after Seriously... lol

    You have to earn achievements. That's why they're called achievements

    The title update is free and that's what contains the achievements. However some of the achievements are tied to things relating to playing the maps in the Hidden Fronts map pack which currently costs money but will be made free in a few months.

    Does this general housekeeping mean we will be seeing the end of the weapon slides and chainsaw glitches?

    As for the achievements, please tell me we won't be seeing another insane achievement like seriously. It was cool and all, but it was just too much.

    im excited but terrified at the same time, if the new patch is anything like the old i can see myself easily parting with the game. i saw somebody say something about giving an option for roadie running, that would be cool, could have a setting for when it was good, one for how it is now and one for whatever you guys are doing to it this time. that alone would be a huge step in a good direction in my books. i was fine with the weapons before the patch, i thought they were very well balanced, this is not the case now. the one thing id love to see gone most of all though are the glitches/bugs. weapon sliding is a terrible thing as is the cs glitches and map exiting

    Keep up the good work, some people--like myself--are satisfied with the roadie run as it is. However people will always complain, and it takes alot of work to find a middle ground that everyone is satisfied to stand up for. Love the game, can't wait for the sequel.

    Good stuff Mark. Thanks for the update. I was wondering though, how about some DLC for the XBox itself. Like Red Vs Blue has done with picture packs, I can think of three right now for Gears. You could have a COG gamerpic pack, a locust one, and a weapon one (you already have the pics for the weapon one, just make the achievement pictures able to be used as gamerpics!!!!). Me personally, I would LOVE to have the pic of the Sniper as my gamer pic. It seems so easy to do, since you already have all the visuals. Take one day to piece them together, and sell them for 100-150 MS points perpack, and you guys will make super easy money!

    Aside from this, how about another theme! Not one with the stupid Discovery stuff, but a whole new one that doesnt just focus on the two new maps and Future Weapons. And how about other merchandise. How about some McFarlane figures. I would love a Carmine figure holding a sniper, that would rock! Anyway, you guys have a cash cow here, and we are all begging for you to start putting the stuff out, SO DO IT ALREADY...lol. I don't want a stupid Gears t-shirt. I think I gave you some excellent ideas. The picture packs would be super easy, and you could contract with McFarlane, meaning you have to do almost none of the work, and jsut receive royalty checks. I can't wait for updates, I love them, but we want more....give us more!!!

    Awesome! cant wait, this probobly isnt the best place but was wondering if Epic where considering making the Hidden Fronts maps (or at least some of them) have more players per team, I mean those maps really are huge and seems a shame to not liven things up a bit, its understandable how this wouldnt work with the old ones as they where designed with relatively close combat in mind (at least when you compare to the likes of Bullet marsh, subway etc).

    Mark, if you can just answer me one question, that would be great:

    Is there a chance of achievements eventually coming to player matches? Just curious and thought I could catch you while you're here.

    Thats great news. I guess annex will be more than the seriously club now. I've just gotten used to the new roadie run though so... feel free to leave it as is.

    A small request I have would be to increase the boltok starting ammo by 6 as 12 is only two clips and every other gun, save for boom, has relatively alot more use.

    Oh, and to the guy who wanted 3 separate picture packs of achievements, go speak to the guy who asked how much the new ach's would cost.
    Seriously progress: 10 265 as of April 19/08

    It is much stronger than the snub thus the starting ammo is smaller, yes?

    I'm betting 1 of these Achievements requires us to knock out the generator so many times or gain access to the sniper in Garden so many times.

    I appreciate someone actually replying us.

    I just hope they fix all the little glitches that are really annoying. I can't tell you how many times I've gone under fuel depot... All they would need to do is take out the bottles, hopefully they address this. Fixing other glitches like getting stuck for 5 seconds unable to do anything after jumping on a wall, or the sniper reload glitch that look to be around for a while unless they will actually addressed would also great, but if they didn't fix the depot glitch I doubt they will this fix any others this time.

    And please god whatever you do with the roadie run, have a public beta or something to test it. Or just change it back to normal and take off the delay on the walls as well. There is nothing wrong with being able to both off of walls and it also makes it that much worse when we do get caught on a wall on accident.
