Microsoft Game Studios and Epic Games will release the “Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection" this June.
To commemorate Gears of War 2's sales surpassing 5 million copies worldwide, and the overall Gears of War franchise having soared past the 11 million unit mark, Microsoft Game Studios and Epic Games will release the “Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection,” a compilation that combines all previous “Gears of War 2” Game Add-ons with brand new multiplayer and campaign content. Available only at retail, the new collection will arrive on store shelves worldwide on July 28th, for $19.99 (£14.99).
Included in the “Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection” is the “Gears of War 2: Dark Corners” Game Add-on, which features seven new multiplayer maps and a deleted campaign chapter titled “Road to Ruin.”
The seven new multiplayer maps in the “Gears of War 2: Dark Corners” Game Add-on are:
• Allfathers Garden
• War Machine
• Way Station
In addition to the new content, the “Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection” also contains every “Gears of War 2” Game Add-on released to date, including the classic “Flashback” Map Pack, “Combustible” Map Pack and the winter-themed “Snowblind” Map Pack. Also included is an introduction to “Road to Ruin” from Epic Games design director Cliff Bleszinski, along with a custom Xbox LIVE theme, collectible “Gears of War 2” poster and a strategy guide.
Those who already downloaded the “Gears of War 2” map packs can download the “Dark Corners” Game Add-on on Xbox Live Marketplace for 1,600 MS Points.
