Canals/Mansion Remake, Gold HAMMERBURST, Midnight event and more

Epic is living up to their name...........

First off they are fighting Piracy and used game sales, The remade maps - Gridlock, Subway, Canals, Mansion, and Tyro Station - will be available to download off the XBLM day one of release FOR FREE, but ONLY to those who purchase a new copy of the game with a redemption code......used game buyers who feed gamestop, TOO BAD

And the rumor is that all who attend Gears 2 midnight launch events will receive a redemption code to unlock an in-game gold plated Hammerburst. (not the special edition Lancer, the locust gun)

Wow, people find ways to Bitch about even free maps????
If you were not gonna purchase the game, DONT REPLY TO TOPICS ABOUT IT

While I'm really happy about this, I can see the maps being a problem for sites like Gamebattles.  Using the DLC maps could cause problems when people don't have them, as it's always been a pain in the past.

I think that is false. I hope it is becuase remember what happened with Bad Company? Unlock codes are a bitch. Plus isn't Gridlock already remade and confirmed to ship with Gears of War 2?

If its false, oh well.
If its not, yay free maps and golden hammerburst.

But the thing thats a-tickilin my facny is that if there is more than one golden weapon who's to say that all the weapons are not gold plated?
Maybe when you get the achievement's for each weapon it unlocks the golden version ala Call of Duty 4?
Interesting.....very interesting.

This is just a rumour - a huge rumour. Happy about canals, but where's my Fuel Depot? I know so many people that love that map. Should've swapped it with Tyro Station, to be honest. Also, if the gold lancer + hammerburst are unlockable without the limited edition -- I'm downgrading my preorder. No need for all the extra stuff ...

EDIT: This is slightly off-topic, but if any of you haven't seen the "Enemies" ViDoc, go and see it -- it's awesome. Didn't want to make yet another thread on this forum for it. Enjoy.

Shut yo mouth!
If its like our article says and the weapons are randomly spawning maybe the map will actually be fun since it wont be a rush to the god damned boomshot.

Yeah I would have preferred Fuel Depot over Tyro Station but I'm still content.

Add Fuel Depot and War Machine to that and it would have been ideal for Hulk.

I hope War Machine gets remade too but i cant wait for this game

What is it with new members and douchebaggery? 

I'm totally stoked for Mansion.  It was my favorite map in the original game. 

<3 Epic.
