As the storm of E3 approaches, so does our next big update for Warhawk and with it comes 2 entirely new gameplay modes for every map, including the Booster Packs - and these new gameplay modes are completely FREE!
Before I get into the meaty list of updates, let me start off by saying that Warhawk v1.4 will have its global simultaneous release very, very soon... how soon you ask?
In just about 48 hours – July 16th at 10:00 GMT (that's 3am Pacific)
When we started designing the new modes, we looked at play styles could freshen up the Warhawk play experience. After all, Warhawk is now almost a year old And after a few months of development and play testing, we're ready to rollout 2 new gameplay modes that the team and I are incredibly happy with: Hero and Collection.
New Gameplay Mode "Hero"
This is a team-based game mode in which one member of each team is randomly selected to be their team's Epic Hero. Players score points for their team by killing the enemy Hero or by killing enemies while they're the Hero. The team that reaches the score limit first (or has the most points when time runs out) wins the game.
Really what it all boils down to is a huge battle between...
289w ago - Update: Rumor officially debunked. Cliff Bleszinski popped up on the NeoGAF boards to discredit these supposed EGM GoW2 details saying that whoever published this news is making it up. Thanks for the clarification Cliffy.
We've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of EGM's special July issue featuring Gears of War 2 awesomeness that's set to hit newsstands on June 3rd. But, if the rumors are true, we won't have to wait until June to get the new feature reveals, because a helpful EGM subscriber claims to have already received his July issue and has spilled all the exclusive Gears 2 deets.
Over on the GameSpot forums, member Prosecut0rGodot claims to have already received a copy of EGM's July issue and posted a recap of all the new Gears 2 details that were revealed. If true, EGM is said to reveal new GoW2 features including co-op specific cut-scenes and decisions that'll affect the game's ending, a brand new stamina bar has been added and will dictate a player's performance, a never before seen "Acheron" Locust creature will make an appearance and two new multiplayer modes were announced including the chainsaws only "En-Garde" mode.
A few other goodies were supposedly revealed, so make your way towards the break to read the entire list of the rumored GoW2 info.
297w ago - The version 1.3 patch for PlayStation Network title Warhawk, which is set to bring a number of custom aircraft paint schemes and HOME integration to the table, isn't out just yet – but that isn't stopping Dylan Jobe and crew from dropping details on the next major update for Warhawk.
To quote from the blog comment linked above: So while I can't say too much, I can say that the team is hard at work on developing some new game modes.
We have a lot of new designs at various phases of development so I can't say which ones will make the cut for the v 1.4 patch just yet... but rest assured that the next patch *will* have new modes, and of course, they will be free.
Don't forget that the version 1.3 update is scheduled to hit later next week. :P
