Gears of War Judgment Call to Arms Map Pack Introduces 3 Maps and a New Multiplayer Mode

Microsoft and Epic Studios today announced the second expansion in the “Gears of War: Judgment” multiplayer experience, the Call to Arms Map Pack, coming to VIP Season Pass holders on Tuesday, 23rd April on Xbox LIVE, and available worldwide on 30th April. Developed by Epic Games and People Can Fly, the Call to Arms Map Pack brings players three new multiplayer maps, a brand-new mode called “Master at Arms,” and six armor and gun skins for customizing your characters and weapons.

Set against the backdrop of the Locust invasion of Halvo Bay, all three new maps provide a mix of close quarters and vertical combat, keeping players  immersed in the action.  The Call to Arms Map Pack provides 10 new Achievements worth a total of 250 Gamerscore.

New Maps:

  • Terminal: The speed and ferocity of the Locust invasion took Halvo Bay completely by surprise.  Residents scrambled to evacuate by every means possible, and COG forces were called in to maintain order as martial law was enforced.  However, the Locust showed no mercy, and gave no quarter; they swept through train terminals like this one to take advantage of the close quarters and sheer number of defenceless humans trapped within its walls.  Sometimes, COG forces could hold the line long enough for a final evacuation, but too many lost their lives in defence of the people and the land they loved.
  • Blood Drive: As casualties started to mount, the staff at Halvo Memorial quickly began what would become the largest triage effort in the history of Sera.  Their “Give Blood Today” campaign inspired a global blood drive in support of COG forces and wounded civilians.  Sadly, Halvo fell quickly, and the hospital became a battlefront instead of a sanctuary.  The seed of hope was planted, however, and government-run Memorial hospitals across the country mobilised to keep the effort alive until Jacinto Memorial was the last standing bastion of hope for the people of Sera.
  • Boneyard: The concept of traditional memorial services had to be suspended due to the constant stream and alarming volume of casualties as Sera fell victim to the Locust Horde.  Memorial grounds quickly became boneyards.  Unmarked holes became grave sites and mausoleums were filled with the nameless remains of the fallen, their skeletons piled into heaps.  Tread lightly, you never know what, or who, you’re walking on, and one day you’re bound to join them.

New mode is calls Master at Arms. This new free-for-all game mode exclusive to “Gears of War: Judgment” will test players skill.  The goal is to get a kill with each of the 20 different available weapons, without resorting to melee or grenade tactics.  Every successful kill will automatically advance you to the next available weapon until you have used them all and proven your skill as a true Master at Arms.

Call to Arms will cost 1000 Microsoft points and will be free to VIP pass owners.

Battlefield 2143 Being Demanded by Fans After ‘2143 Easter Egg’ Spotted in BF3 Map Pack

Fans have begun to demand a sequel to Battlefield 2142 the future-based, sci-fi shooter that brought on PC gamers love for a multiplayer experience that was, and still is to this day, unique. With the approach of Next Gen gaming thanks to the PlayStation 4, now is the perfect time for fans to speak up if they want EA to consider funding such a title. Medal of Honor has been canned as a series from EA’s publishing, in the following article DigitalBattle argues for such a game:

Are the guys at DICE just messing with us? Or perhaps they’re just throwing out bits of nostalgia at the BF2142 fans. Who happen to be some of the most die hard Battlefield fans ever. 2142 was released just a year after the groundbreaking Battlefield 2, and quickly established a major fan base of its own.

They’ve already confirmed that Battlefield 4 will be set in modern day, which is good if you’re looking to sell a lot of copies and compete with Call Of Duty. But down the line, we’d really like to get back to the future with the Battlefield series. Hopefully 2143 is something they have on the drawing board. Battlefield 4 is currently in development and scheduled for release later this year on current and next-gen platforms. And the PC of course.”, read the rest by clicking here.

Black Ops 2 Revolution: PS3 Zombies Die Rise Solo HD Gameplay

Brand new released downloadable content for the PlayStation Network, Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution map pack which is introduces the new zombies map  “Die Rise”. Some really funky old school video game music kicks things off. When you hear the “Click, click” you know it’s starting. Treyarch outdoes themselves as always, take a look at the video and see if you agree.

Tristans Twisted World: Halo 4 Majestic Map Pack First Impressions

Halo 4 Majestic Map Achievements

The maps are small and have a very Halo 2 and Halo 3 feel to it which is very good.

The first map I played was Landfall Infinity Slayer which Landfall felt like Longshore from Halo 3 mythic map pack it had a very straightforward approach to the map which made the map easy to find people but with different levels.

The second map was Monolith which had a very Halo 4 feel in terms of how it looked but had a new feel which I think its the best map in the entire pack I played some king of the hill the grav lifts had me and others jetpacking off them trying to get to hills it was a blast!!

The final map was Skyline which felts like a few Halo 2 maps since it was like a city. I played the new gametype Infinity Rumble on it which was quite fun and the map had about 4 different levels so it made it fun to drop on people and kill them.

The map is better than Crimson and is about a top 5 Halo map pack off all time gives everything you could ask for new modes, new maps, new fun.

Rockstar Announces Paid DLC for Max Payne 3… Before It’s Even Out

Max Payne 3 Paid DLC Before Release

Max Payne is a franchise name that jumpstarts the fondest of fond memories for Action / Shooter gameplay fans who were lucky enough to have experienced this primarily PC and PlayStation 2 gem. Considered to hold the potential to live up to the classic by many, the third installment of Max Payne is headed to release May 15, 2012.

It is also potential, however, that Rockstar Games has decided to announce waves of Downloadable Content for the game (some of which is of course, paid DLC) before the game even releases.

Until the fans of gaming giants like Rockstar games react to announcements like this they will continue to be considered acceptable. Right now the community seems to be divided on this issue with many gamers turning a blind eye and apathetic shrug of the shoulders to the whole situation while others are up in arms about it.
