Update: Mere moments into the Spike Video Game Awards, supermodel Marisa Miller announced that the Gears of War 2 "Combustible" multiplayer map pack will be indeed released tonight at 12 AM PST / 3 AM EST. No pricing was mentioned.
One of the new maps, Flood, was previously unveiled in a batch of leaked screenshots. Two other maps, Fuel Station and Gold Rush, were named tonight as well.
Update 2: The Combustible Map Pack is now available for 800 Microsoft Points ($10).
Original: A new downloadable map pack for Gears of War 2 will be released in just a few hours--12 AM PST / 3 AM EST--according to Primotech.
The revelation supposedly stems from a rehearsal of the Spike Video Game Awards, which are set to air live beginning at 9 PM EST. The network had previously promised a "special announcement" regarding the Xbox 360-exclusive action game.
The map pack is titled "Combustible," according to the report, which does not specify a price. Shortly following the game's mid-November release, supposed screenshots of a new multiplayer map popped up, though their validity remains unconfirmed.
Already? I still haven't played the stock map enough to get bored of them. It's also already hard enough to find people with the matchmaking service..
Yeah, the matchmaking is absolutely terrible. Worse then Halo3 ever was(and that was bad enough..)
