War Machine looks set to become the next playable map on Gears UE BETA


War Machine appears to be winning the next map poll!

You can see on the forums how everyone is replying with “War Machine” in massive majority.

We have not counted the actual number of War Machine votes, but its looking like a 70 to 80{f362ba258205f4e1cb8a532d311be4ed4d125da6c9b83b6ce61dbaa08cf8a25e} majority! The votes from twitter also make for similar votes.

You can vote up until the end of the day on the 17th of JuneĀ Just reply in the thread here with your vote

So far Canals is and has always been my favourite map. The ability to quickly flank and get away from a chasing enemy makes it a really fun level.

War Machine, although it has a lot of flanking routes, they are much longer generally to do than on Canals. So ensuring you are keeping your position locked down from potential flankers, whilst dealing with any immediate threat is a typical balance you will face during a match.

It is interesting how the maps are marked with a weapon spawn with an X, rather than the actual weapon. This means that this same image will be universal and would suit a map where a weapon spawn may be subject to change. For competitions etc, where weapon spawns are often changed.

There has been a really big effort made into re working the maps, and I am eagerly awaiting to see what War Machine looks like on the Ultimate Edition of Gears of War.

It is possible to get a sneak peak preview of the map from footage obtained from e3. See below.
