Epic confirms "a fun little surprise in the next update" and about a possible talks PC version
The next update for Epic's hugely successful Xbox 360 shooter Gears of War fans will be out "Definitely within a couple of months," Mark Rein has revealed.
Speaking to Team Xbox, he added the developer wants "to have as regular a stream of new stuff coming for the title" as possible.
Rein reaffirmed that "there'll be a fun little surprise in the next update," although wouldn't spill further beans. "I don't want to say specifically what we're going to have," he said.
And will the next Gears update be a free download? Epic would "love to have everything be free," Rein explained, although "There's a lot of pressure on us, having the leading game on the platform, to be part of the downloadable economy... there's external pressure on us to participate in that."
It looks as if Epic is still trying to stay in the game with the Gears of War by adding new updates again and again (second one coming up) and by creating a PC version (which will lack the awesome Xbox 360 graphics needed).
I guess one of the main reasons that they are doing this is that the Halo game that everyone is almost garaunteed to by if they have a 360, is going to be coming out somewere with in the next few months. In Xbox magazine, Gears of War was suggested as an in console rival to Halo 3, so maybe Epic is trying to live up to that name.
There are other ways to get the upper hand on Halo, but they would take a while, and by the, Halo 3 would have been out for a while and Epic would be a bit to late. This might include creating a part 2 to Gears of War (spoiler: those who have played the game know it ends in a cliff hangar/ possible part 2).
So Epic is trying to keep the game fresh by new stuff and incouraging more and more people to buy it, but will they be able to survive long enough inorder to still be competition to the long due Halo 3?
