Gears Patch Still Underway, says Mark Rein
In a recent interview, Planet Gears of War got to clear up a bit of news about the upcoming Gears of War patch…
Planet Gears of War: What sort of things do you guys have in mind for downloadable content? Are there any plans to extend the single-player game as well as multiplayer?
Cliff: Xbox Live is an umbilical crackpipe that an entire generation of gamers are rapidly becoming addicted to. The versus is where we plan on extending the fun of Gears online and thus any continuation of the single player experience remains to be seen.
Mark: The first update we do will be some housekeeping to take care of a few things we need to adjust. We hope to have that in the pipeline before too long. Unfortunately the certification group at Microsoft shuts down relatively early in December so weâ€™re racing against the clock to try to get it finished and certified for release through the Xbox Live update system. Judging by all the great Xbox360 games that have been released recently these folks deserve to have a great holiday season.
I don’t know about anyone else, but that sounds like a bit of awesome to me. Hopefully, the certification team can get this cleared up before the holidays are over – i’d love to enjoy some Christmas Eve fragging with a freshly installed patch that clears up some of the ‘annoyances’.
Any way it goes, Gears of War is awesome. If you’re a fan of shooters and own a 360, it’s a MUST-OWN.
