NICE!

REAVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!

Love this game and how bro-fueled it is. I've been playing with a bunch of punks on Horde mode and need some new team mates. Who's down?

I still need to download the Season Pass as well. But yeah, love these games. Lots of fun.

Sawed-Off is easy to dodge or counter now for me. Just gotta catch that small glimpse of it from an enemy or the reload sequence from them. I can roll and pop a gnasher bullet in their lousy face.

Recent news, I beat the campaign on Insane difficulty and got the new ghost protocol weapon skin. pretty neat.

All I play usually is Ranked KOTH matches. Occasionally Team Deathmatch and Beast. I like Horde 2.0 but it's very time consuming.

I like Clocktower but that's all anyone ever votes for when in lobby, I'm sick of it already.

How can any rascal even have that by now... All Onyx medals? They must have either hacked it or been dicks and played 16 hours a day since it's come out.

Anyway if you can get a group of 5 people together it's quite fun to troll in Team Deathmatch and only use chainsaws or retro charges.

Unsure, I'm sure it's both populations - modders and losers.

I am really decent in most matches, minus a few lame games here and there. I got messaged by a guy after we lost the match and he called me a cunt and sent another calling me a huge piece of shit since I was last in points on our team both times. We play another match and I come in second place on the team with 34 kills. Stupid asshole, He was still in first but calling people names for bad games is rude as fuck. I reported him and blocked all telecommunications from him anyways. Dipshit.

I'm always looking to play, if you're on and we're frandz then send me a lobby invite!

Individual things in the Beta were considered events and sometimes events are glitched to where it pops up as one adding to the medal after each match, even if you've played the event before.

I know what you mean. I'll play it and enjoy it. With muted mics and no mic at all. I'll tell you all a story...

It was a ranked KOTH match and it was me and 4 randoms vs a clan. Well through the course of a match my entire team quit, minus me. After the match ended I heard one foul mouth on the other team talking shit, to which (also to my mistake) replied on the mic saying well, it wasn't really a fair match anyways with my team quitting. The guy said "you should've quit too, you little bitch" to which I said "how? I'm the only guy that actually stayed the whole match and had balls to lose if i was going to." I was then barraged with tons of fuck you's and terrible insults from everyone on the other team afterwards.

I hope they enjoyed their shit talk and lame one-sided match because I reported every single one of their asses to Microsoft for trash talking and insults.

I was also in a match with a guy on my team in KOTH, oddly we were in two matches back to back on the same team. After each match he sent nasty messages to me because I was last on the team and not doing well. Lo and behold, the third match we were on a team again...I came in second place on the team, after him, yet I still had more kills. Stupid cocksuck.

DLC Blunder #2.

First the Horde Command was hours late due to 'Technical Difficulties' and now me as a season pass holder, can't even download RAAM's Shadow easily as there's a glitch that says I have to pay 1200 MSP to get it. I swear, this is annoying. I wanted to play some before class this morning but I guess that won't happen as I am about to walk out of the door. I find it lame that I bought the season pass and people that didn't are playing this before I do. I know they will fix it but buying the pass (minus the price of everything in totality) and not getting it without waiting or a problem kinda defeats the purpose of it in the first place?

It's being looked in to according to all the usual people on Twitter, another Microsoft thing, EPIC are the ones that forced them to put the text 'DO NOT buy it here' in the grey section on the right while the blunder is being corrected. I sincerely hope they're doing this on purpose to teach people to be patient. They said it'd be released on Dec. 13th so as long as it drops before midnight everyone's arguments are invalid. It's the very reason why theaters had to start having midnight shows and albums online are available RIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. People's patience nowadays is at absolute zero. Even if it's tonight at 9pm, we'll all have it tomorrow...this game has enough content to satisfy everyone for another 24 hours.

I got it anyways, it took about 40 minutes to download. I'm in Chapter 4 out of 5. It's fun and adds a whole new perspective into the series. The portions where you play as RAAM and the Locust Squad he has is fun and different. The Foreshadowing achievement (In a Public match, as RAAM, execute a player who is Mihn 10 times) will be a bitch to get. I don't even wanna play as RAAM in multiplayer, I wanna be my beloved Savage Kantus.

I beat RAAM'S Shadow in standard campaign and have gotten the Finger of Doom, Ghosts from the Past and Foreshadowing achievements in addition. I ended up getting lucky and getting the latter in 3 matches - 2 executions in quick match, 6 in ranked and another 2 in ranked. Glad that's over. Phew.

The new exclusive weapon skins - mint and candy cane, are cool. Love to see the mint stay even after Gearsmas is over.

3rd DLC - Fenix Rising Announced - January 17, 2012
Release Date: January 17, 2012
Price: Included in the Season Pass or 800 MSP on the Xbox Live Marketplace ($10)


MAPS

Escalation - Haldane Hall has been the home of the Fenix family for countless generations. But the only history that matters to Marcus’s are his memories of warm summer evenings spent with his mother, Elain, relaxing in the estate’s gardens. Sadly, all the estate’s history and beauty was lost when the Locust destroyed it in an attempt to kidnap his father.

Academy - The lineage of the Fenix family can be traced back along a distinguished line of military officers. Officer training at the Oracle Academy was simply the expected path for Marcus, and he had visited the grounds many times in expectation that he would walk the same path as his ancestors. But it was not to be, and Marcus broke with tradition to be with his best friends Dom and Carlos. Like any number of fine Seran traditions, the Academy is now lost to the invasion of the Locust Horde.

Slab- Convicted for insubordination and treason, Marcus was incarcerated in Jacinto Maximum Security Prison. Known as “The Slab”, this prison is not a correctional facility – it’s a place where Sera’s worst offenders are locked up and forgotten. The inmates are brutal, parole is not an option, and the average life expectancy is about two years. But that was before the Locust showed up, and what couldn’t get worse, suddenly did. Now your life expectancy there is around 2 minutes.

Anvil - The fortress of Anvegad was called Anvil Gate because its impenetrable walls were forged in the fires of war. Huge cannons sat atop battlements that guarded sprawling walls running the line of the UIR borders. Marcus went there to find Hoffman, and they both thought that Anvil Gate would offer protection from the incoming forces of Locust and Lambent. They were wrong, and little remains other than the ruined shell of a once mighty fortress.

Depths - The excessive opulence of Azura defied all normal reasoning. But Adam Fenix could see the cracks in the veneer of splendor from the moment he arrived at this underwater processing center. And all that beauty mattered not at all once he was held captive by the Locust. Out of options, he had to find a way to contact Marcus, and finally reveal the truths he’d been keeping to himself for all these many years.


Character Skins
COG
Recruit Clayton - Clayton was born a Gear, grew up a Gear, and on the very day he became eligible, he signed himself up to become the capable, confident, and devoted Gear he’d always known he could be.

Thrashball Cole - Special Limited Edition - The Cole Train prefers to take the most direct path to the Locust Horde in any situation. What he lacks in finesse, he makes up in raw energy.

Locust
Savage Kantus- Special Limted Edition - The Savage Kantus were profoundly impacted by the loss of the Hollow. They have reverted to a primal, shamanistic state, and their battle cries have taken a dark, melancholy turn. Few sounds are as terrifying to human ears.

Savage Marauder Drone - Locust Marauders were the first to form any sort of organization outside of the Hollow – if their brutal infighting and bloodthirsty raiding parties could truly be called organized.

-

New Systems

Re-Upping - Essentially a "prestige" System. Players can "re-enlist" and being their rank from 1 again after reaching level 100. All unlocks and Custom Items remain. Additionally Re-Upping can grant you access to new Weapon Skins! - You can Re-Up through the Four Tiers of Colors. Bronze>Red>Green>Gold.

Every Re-Up earns players a new weapon skin obtainable only after Re-upping.

Re-Up Plasma - Animated Plasma in GOLD!
Re-Up Omen - Shiny Red Omen!
Re-Up Electric - Animated Golden Electric Shocks!

- The Rank Number will change color depending on the Rank you are currently on.
- Your Rank and XP is reset back to the beginning. Unlocked items and custom items are not reset

Achievements
250 points in Achievements. More details to be announced.

I like and dislike this DLC. I am a season pass holder and for this I'm pretty sure they'll release the maps free like they did with Horde Command. So what do I get? let's see repackaged dlc characters (I have Savage Kantus) and 2 skins (Cole and Carmine) I won't use. The prestige system is nice but necessarily needed. I don't care for this DLC much to be honest. I get it for free anyways, even though i forked up $30.00 for season pass. Not the best Epic.

P.S. Whiners get the pre-order characters so now I'll see 3 out of 5 on my team being the Savage Kantus. There goes my exclusivity. Ugh. I felt special knowing I didn't have another of my kind on the team. Now the new Savage Kantus and Cole have different color schemes, whoop-dee-doo.

After busting out of the gym at the school, me and my team end up outside. The berserker comes berserking through the other exit and it's supposed to be on.
However, we exit and my team just stands near the door. The berserker is nowhere to be seen and the car park is empty. I'm lead to believe there should be cars and shit everywhere.
I restarted the game, turned off the console, etc, but the emptiness of the car park still remains.

Don't get me started on the Sawed Off. I wrote a page long rant on the official forums that started a huge debate as to how the designers themselves, especially Rod F. actually said in interviews that it was a gun for new players to be able to 'keep up with more seasoned players'. That and the gnasher are not only OP both in power, but in range. An active gnasher downs you in 1-2 shots from a range far greater than it should be. It's a natural result though of gaming. Whatever weapon will give you the easiest kills is the one that people will always gravitate towards. I've been in, I'd say, three matches EVER where it was hammy/lancer fests...but 99% of the time it's Shotguns of War. There's a reason my K/D is actually pretty good and why I use the Retro Lancer 99% of the time.

Of course shotgun users will be the first to whine that everyone who uses Lancers are the terrible players, but it's a game that HEAVILY favors shotgun runners. If it was maps of open fields, I'm the first to admit it'd be a different story...but it's mazes of walls and corners to hide behind. The game itself is a game based on a system of cover. Shotgun runners are shitty teammates, waiting around corners for that cheap, shitty kill (especially Sawed Off users) instead of helping their team. I can't tell you how many Sawed Off users I've laughed at that ran headfirst in to my bullets JUST to try to get close enough to me...from chasing me for 20 seconds straight ('could've lancered me loooong ago, pal') to staring at me from 50 ft. away...me not moving but just watching them to see if they'll realize a shotgun won't do much at that distance ('could've just lancered me loooong ago, pal'). Basically, it turns you in to just another predictable shotgun clown that I can beat 9 times outta 10. It also makes you shit in terms of helping your team. With the Sawed Off, sure you might get a kill, but you'll probably die too since you ran in to a crowd of gunfire. So what good for your team were you? 1 for 1...no advantage for your team.

Again though, I get it...whatever takes the least amount of skill to actually do ('what, I have to actually AIM with a Lancer?...pfft) will be what people do the most. Nothing new.

In other news here are the new achievements for Fenix Rising. (http://epicgames.com/community/2012/01/seven-new-achievements-to-earn-in-fenix-rising-dlc/)

My absolute favourite is after a player shoots their sawed off shotgun, they usually do their run away shit while reloading and so many times while they've done this they've run straight into me with a loaded weapon, they still reloading of course because the sawed off takes so fucking long to reload. Nothing pleases me more than to shoot them in the face with my gnasher.

Playing a Ranked Execution Match on Blood Drive with my stacked team/eventual clan members was almost certain defeat (3-1). But somehow, someway we pushed and ended up winning the match. So satisfying, a real feeling of accomplishment when you do such feats in this game. So tactical and methodical in playing. I love it and this game.

I ended up going 4 kills, 8 downs, 3 revives and 5 deaths.

New characters are meh, the first prestige weapon skin is meh (a lot of the skins are meh and I find that there should be more character changes, like colors on the helmets or something rather than just weapon skins)...digging it a lot but still...the new stuff is alright at best.

I'm Level 19 already in my second go through.

As me being an owner of Savage Kantus. I find it unfair and a waste that he was released as DLC in this. In actuality we're getting two more skins - Recruit Carmine (Clayton with sleeves re-skin) and Savage Marauder (which was Savage Creeper before?). The rest is just recolored skins - lame and lazy. I think it's dumb they are releasing Cole Train, since you had to earn him in the Beta.

I for one hate the Cupid's Wingman event and Wingman is a horrid gametype in general. I have to play it for an event ribbon though so eh. It's not unlocking anyways for playing a match this weekend.

Am i the only one that feels the color palate Epic decided to go with after Gears 1 was a poor choice? They made an otherwise gritty, badd ass, bloody game into a colorful, almost anime looking one. Gears 3 was a vast improvement over Gears 2 but still no where close to the greatness of Gears 1.

Anyone share these sentiments?

october_midnight
06-07-2012, 08:28 PM
Actually I believe that in multiple interviews before Gears 3 dropped, Cliff and Rod mentioned on numerous occasions that most people complained about how drab the first two games were, and how they tried to bring more color in to the game. I feel that while it has more color now, it's far from 'anime looking'.

As for the new Gears, I've gotta say darktemplar is on the right path. It looks ok, but I'm not pumped on it at all.

Rabbit
06-07-2012, 08:45 PM
the only people i saw complaining about how Gears 1 looked were casual players and critics. Never follow the casual or critics into making a game... you'll end up with something watered down and stupid.

Epic failed me with Gears. I thought Gears 1 was the fucking shit, now it's just another game.

New game details:

Gears of War: Judgement is an upcoming entry in the Gears of War (http://www.giantbomb.com/gears-of-war/62-565/) series being developed by Epic Games (http://www.giantbomb.com/epic-games/65-149/) and People Can Fly (http://www.giantbomb.com/people-can-fly/65-730/). The game will serve as the first chapter in a planned prequel trilogy set 14 years before the events of the first Gears of War (http://www.giantbomb.com/gears-of-war/61-12231/), and will focus on the characters Damon Baird (http://www.giantbomb.com/damon-baird/94-694/) and Augustus Cole (http://www.giantbomb.com/augustus-cole/94-687/) along with two new-to-the-series squadmates, all of whom form Kilo Squad.

The game will be told via flashbacks as Baird is on trial, with narration from his testimony framing the action. After finishing things the traditional way, players will be able to go back and play games in "Declassified" mode, which tweaks things even further by having Baird "remember" things differently.


Judgment is designed to be a faster-paced, more intense experience than the previous games in the series, leading to some control changes. Grenades are now treated as an off-hand weapon and thrown using the left bumper, and weapon switching is done with a button press. Enemy spawns are handled by a new system known as the "Simple Spawn System," or S3. Sounding similar to the AI Director found in the Left 4 Dead series, the S3 watches a player's performance (using metrics including accuracy) and delivers enemies accordingly. The end goal is to make Gears of War Judgment a significantly more difficult experience than its predecessors, though traditional difficulty settings are also available to govern the overall nastiness of the S3.


Multiplayer will consist of at least one new mode, called OverRun. This is a class-based mode that feels like a twist on Gears 3's Beast mode. The attacking Locust players attempt to reach a generator that's being protected by human forces. Meanwhile, the humans are also broken up into classes, including soldier, medic, engineer, and so on. The different classes have different rechargeable abilities, such as spawning ammo crates, healing, creating turrets, and throwing grenades. This is a Stopwatch-style mode, so players play on both sides of the action and the team with the better attack time wins the match.

Good, was dreading it'd come out the later half of 2013.

I don't think they can improve much off Gears 3's engine, gameplay and online connection (sadly) but I do hold high regards in excitement and something new.

Looks like you'll get Infinite and I'll get Judgment. The I'll get Infinite cheaper later on and you Gears later on. No biggie.

I love this game (and series to death) but for me 3 is dying due to resurgence of loser usage of Retro Lancers and lousy connections. There are no dedicated servers for this anymore. I get hit by 5 Lancer bullets and I immediately go down, I shoot a fucking guy in the back of the head at close range with my Gnasher and I get nothing.

Just watched the 13 minutes Overrun video and now there's a 48 min one I skipped through for Domination. Looks good, I'll sink some time in to it, but it's still just gnashers and wall bouncing which they should've tried to do away with. I like the new aspects such as a button press weapon change instead of D-pad and things like picking classes or your one loadout and that's all you get. One touch grenades with cooldown, etc. Still, BioShock Infinite is my priority.

Well of course I know your Bioshock fandom which is why I asked. I remember exchanging words where you said you wouldn't be getting Judgment and etc.

I like some changes but some I don't. I never had an issue with the weapon swapping with the D-Pad BUT sometimes I hit the wrong button when switching to Gnasher and got my Snub out...needless to say that's a dying mistake. I'm a fan of Gnasher gameplay but sometimes it's too much. I highly doubt it but I hope they make the game have good variety. I'm a 50/50 player. I try to use my rifle as much as the Gnasher. Some people, like I'm sure as they will in this, will do one 100% over the other.

I hope they make the Retro Lancer completely useless. I hate that gun and it's the only one people use on Gears of War 3. Fucking cheap, overpowered, overused and no variety.

I'm sure there will be intentional trolls and dicks in this game too.

The Sawed-Off getting same damage and range as Gnasher doesn't really make me mad like it does everyone else. It's essentially the same gun now, minus a wider spread and 6 less shots. Whoop dee doo.

Looks alright, only for EPIC staff but I'm sure some day they'll open it up across the board. I got to play it in Seattle last week with my friend...only got to play Overrun but it was pretty awesome. Seems faster a bit.

Also got to talk to raczilla for a few minutes, he said that in the campaign there's a few points that are almost like Horde style where you're bunkered down and just facing a crazy high number of locust all flying at you in giant waves.

That's good to hear considering that's where every bit of focus is for this game. I didn't pre-order from Gamestop so no early access for me. I'll just wait till Tuesday, not far away anyways. People that have this early access and rank up to level 30 wont be any better than me anyways. Rank is a number only, doesn't mean you're better.

For me the different button layout was the hardest obstacle to overcome. No wall bouncing, weaker Gnasher, no active reload, different way to toss grenades, larger blast radius, different characters, it's familiar sure, but practically a new game in a lot of aspects. It's more tactical now instead of Gnasher wars in every match. Skyline is a pretty tight map, I'm diggin' it more than the Estate map I played in Seattle.

Then I'm fine with it. Only thing that peeves me is the unnecessary button layout reconfiguration. LB for the Tacom and the d-pad for weapon swapping was a good, easy method. Now like every other shooter it'll be Y and down on d-pad for tacom. Very blah.

I knew of most changes and I expect Overrun as such but core gameplay on standard multiplayer will be same old.

Only thing that'll piss me off is if there's tons of Retro Lancer douchebags. Fucking hate that overpowered weapon.

New DLC and title update drop tomorrow. Haven't played in about a week, but the 3x XP should help me re-up for the second time sooner than expected...hopefully lol.


DLC Update




The first DLC pack and Title Update for Gears of War: Judgment is dropping a few days early. Tomorrow, (Friday, March 29) in fact!
The pack includes a new multiplayer map called Haven and the fan-favorite mode Execution.

IMPORTANT: You must download the DLC pack directly from the Xbox 360 dashboard or add it to your download queue via Xbox.com. The dialogue box prompting you to download the pack in-game is not functioning properly and will be fixed as soon as possible.




Title Update Details



Various dedicated server improvements.
Players no longer get stuck in the main menu background after playing three random matches.
Locusts no longer spawn at the second E-Hole on the first wave of Island.
Players will no longer get stuck inside of a Boom Shield that has been planted by an enemy player.
Players will no longer able to look down the scope with a Markza while holding a Meat Shield.
If a Locust destroys an objective at the same time the timer runs out in OverRun using Mercy rules, the match will not end early.
Fix for exclamation points not disappearing after viewing an unlocked character.
While holding a Meat Shield you will only need to tap B to melee.
The Meat Shield will now drop if you switch to the snub.
The “Spray and Pray” ribbon can now be earned in the first round.
If the Boom Shield is disabled in weapon swap you will no longer see the icon in Tac-Com.
You will now earn the Team Savior ribbon for reviving three individual teammates in a single life.
Players can no longer chainsaw another player while holding the Boom Shield.
Improvements to the Hammer of Dawn targeting.
You will now see XP tallies between matches.

I can't even conceive of getting to level 50 the first time. Having fun with the single player, but it feels like everyone on multiplayer is so far beyond my skill level that it's anti-fun. I guess that's what happens when you get into the series 5 years after everyone else and are up against long-term vets haha. I played a decent amount of Horde when 3 first came out (my introduction to the series), but the co-op and competitive multi modes are a completely different kettle of fish on this one. I love the campaigns in all the Gears games but missing out on most of the multiplayer achievements is doing no favours for my Gamerscore...

It is. In previous games getting from around level 70 to level 100 was a slow, long grind. Unsure when any of you have played Gears of War 3 last (I regularly play it least once a week, have been ever since it came out) but they have like a double/triple/quadruple XP modifier (unsure which it is) permanently now so it's not so hard to level up on there either. Few, solid KOTH matches net huge XP. Even though I'm at Gold Wings (Level 400), I still net about anywhere from 28,000 to 40,000 XP a match.

- Gnasher will spawn with 16 shots in all modes also. These changes will go live "soon".
- Locust in Standard MP: Not looking possible, but they are looking into improving audio and other things.
- Ranked matches will be getting a larger EXP boost, w/ possibility of different, more competitive swaps.
- Possibility of lowering mag size for the Lancer in all modes. (being tested as we speak).
- Audio changes: Enemy footsteps can be altered to sound different than friendly footsteps.
- Hill break time in Domination will be made faster.
- Prizeboxes: They will now always give prizes. No more XP, until you get all the unlocks/skins.
- (Test Server): Pull Grenades from Ammo Boxes. No more grenade refills from ammo boxes.
- Horde will not be returning to Judgment. "Too much of a lift at this point".

I have yet to ever encounter one but I don't play Free For All so doubt I ever will. It's a cool medal and skin but it's too damn hard and elusive to even get. Should've been handled better to me. No way in hell will the entire community ever get it.

In other news, the dual loadouts made this game 50% funner than it ever was. Baffling to me that people are actually complaining on EPIC Games Forums about the dual loadouts. I love Gnasher shotgun fights too but damn, we need more than that shit in this game. The dual loadouts made it better balanced, have more variety and turned up the tactical factor a bit.

Gears of War 1 was probably my second most played game for the 360. I loved the franchise dude, loved it. Gears 2 was the biggest broken piece of shit ever released. Gears 3 tried to save it, but fell short.

They have to do really BIG things to make this franchise relevant again. Gears remastered population vanished quickly. Way faster than what i expected. I thought it was going to have some legs.... nope. People don't care anymore.

I hope i'm wrong and this game rocks. I'll wait for the beta to make that day 1 call.

That's because plebs who aren't true fans to the main series gameplay were turned off to how slow it was compared to Gears of War 3. I still find and play ranked matches all the time on UE. I'm close to re-upping and missing 2 achievements (Seriously... and cluster luck). I'm about 6,000 kills short for Seriously... but I'll eventually get it.

i didn't even bother with gears of war 3. i think i did the beta and that was it.

After watching this video I want this game even more than previously. It's in a bad way now. I'll probably still play it 5 years from now like I do with 3.

Also forgot, new details from Rod:

- The beta will apparently be fairly rough at spots. "It is an honest to god technical beta, not a marketing thing. We need to run tests and slam the servers."
- Local split-screen will be included. "All modes can be done via split-screen."
- Co-op campaign is two player, not four as in Gears 3.

They also have a beta exclusive unlock pack. Reach level 20 in the beta to get it.


The Reward Pack includes the Vintage Kait character skin, Vintage weapon skins for the Lancer and Snub, an emblem to customise your in-game identity, and a rare one-match Double XP Bounty to help you level up faster.

I initially wrote off that Dodgeball mode but that video and others I watched on youtube last night swayed my opinion. I wish TDM wasn't in the Beta. I'm a KOTH guy.

Sawed-Off shotgun and Booshka not returning.
Retro Lancer and Hammerburst recalibrated.
Snub Pistol far weaker at range.
When looking through the Longshot scope, you will be able to see your peripheral a bit more.
Wall bouncing will be reduced via cooldown (i.e. can 'pull back on cover' aka wall bounce XX times and then won't be able to for YY seconds).

I knew they'd fuck up the code release. Someone I'm friends with has a guy that got the game 2 months ago and got his code, yet me and him, day one players, still haven't gotten it yet. Meh. I'll just die in Dark Souls III until they get the code out.

How is the repeated and constant announcing via every single one of their social media feeds over the past week of 'there are tons of codes going out, they'll come out in waves, it will take time.' fucking up?

I was under the impression that the waves were in forms of when the game was played on the account. As in day one people get it first then the later on people got it in the next wave and and so on and so forth until the open beta. Not one mass code sent to people that played it before XXX.

I was right after looking at the forums. Long as I get it before the day is over I don't care. (https://gearsofwar.com/en-us/forums/e9b54fc61eb74ad783d533ca502b0132/threads/gears-of-war-4-beta-early-access-key-distribution/ff863133-5177-4c44-816c-abb5f9f4cfd4/posts)


We plan on sending out codes to users who played Gears of War: Ultimate Edition in chronological order from the date they first played. For example, if you played on the first day the game launched, you will most likely receive your code on the 18th. Players that jumped in toward the tail end of the deadline (April 11th) will probably fall toward the end of the distribution. Codes will arrive via Xbox Live Messages.

Got my code finally. Just downloaded it. About to do my first match.

Good beta overall however my cons list is short but I'll say them anyways:

- Shooting delay with Gnasher coming out of roadie run/just general delay when shooting. It's made me lose loads of gunfights. Lag related or not it's a BIG issue.
- Hammerburst is personally (and in MY opinion) and completely unusable. You'd be a FOOL to not use the lancer as your rifle. TC made it like the first game's but with worse recoil.
- The TDM game mode has issues with spawn camping due to no spawn changes (or just not frequently enough), I've both done it and have had it done to me while playing.
- The maps are mediocre at best. There's no life or intrigue to them. Dam is the best map in the beta, which isn't saying much. This is again MY opinion.
- CCC seems completely absent from MP gameplay. Never once seen it used or have performed it on anyone. Which could be a good thing I suppose. Either way, it's a feature that's not really present.
- B vaulting over cover after a roadie run sometimes doesn't work.

Either way, I really have enjoyed my time with the beta so far. I've hit level 25. Open beta is tomorrow for everyone finally.
