The latest Gears of War 2 Map Pack â€śSnowblindâ€ť is now on Xbox Live. Available for the small price of 800 MS points, the new pack offers up four new maps and nine new Achievements.
â€˘ Grindyard is a massive industrial complex located in a junk-processing plant from the days of Seraâ€™s industrial excess. The office, now gutted, serves as a perfect place to fortify, but if youâ€™re not careful, youâ€™ll end up trapped inside the office with no hope of escape.
â€˘ Under Hill takes players through snowbound tunnels that were once billed as a feat of Seran engineering. Head for high ground on the bridge and youâ€™ll be rewarded with massive firepower, but be prepared to defend your position and try to escape being cornered.
â€˘ Courtyard is a wide-open battle royale containing explosive weapons that once formed the heart of Ephyraâ€™s fashionable Civic Centre. Lines of sight are far and clear here, and battles tend to focus around the elevated sniper nest. Watch your back and keep a fresh clip.
â€˘ Fuel Depot, back by popular demand, Fuel Depot is a â€śGears of War 2â€ť remake of the fan-favourite â€śGears of Warâ€ť map, but winter has set in and the depot is now covered in a blanket of snow. Open and unforgiving, it takes a well-coordinated team to cover all the angles here.
