Epic Games have announced that two new maps for the epic shooter Gears of War will be available to download for free on January 11th.

The free content, which is sponsored by the Discovery Channel, will consist of two multiplayer maps, Raven Down and Old Bones.

"Raven Down: A Raven Helicopter has gone down in the middle of a large scale battle with the omnipresent Locust Horde. Gears have taken out the Seeder and gamers join Delta Forces moving intot the crash site from all angles to search for survivors."

"Old Bones: In an attempt to eradicate any traces of human history and culture, the Locust Horde has emerged under Sera’s Capitaline Museums and has begun to destroy them brick by brick. Each gamer's mission is to help the Delta Force recapture the museums before all remnants of humankind’s existence are obliterated."

Gears of War sold over 2,000,000 units world-wide in the first six weeks of sales. The game was crowned 2006 best shooter by numerous websites and magazines.

Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games also took the time over on the official Gears forums to mention that some bug fixes would be issued before the delivery of the new maps.
Hopefully they're gonna stop people run-shooting (glitching the game) too, which really peevs me off :mad:

Fair play to epic on getting sponsorship and getting the customers free maps…I like it :D

More maps for me to get pwned on ;)

Getting better tho.

Can't seem to get many games hosted in the UK for some reason :rolleyes:
Cool, I'm not the best at it (although I did own all on the multiplayer map with the Hammer of Dawn weapon last time I played it :)) some new maps would be great.
