Hidden Fronts Map Pack goes free on Monday

Here’s a little reminder to Gears of War fans who’ve not grabbed the Hidden Fronts Map Pack yet: Beginning Monday, September 3rd at 2:00 a.m. PDT this 4-pack of multiplayer maps will be available as a free download worldwide, joining the original Multiplayer Map Pack 1 and the Annex game mode.

The Hidden Fronts Map Pack is the top ranked piece of premium downloadable content on Xbox LIVE Marketplace with more than 500,000 downloads to date!

Included in the download are the following maps:

Bullet Marsh – “In this Kryll-infested swamp, an old generator still powers the area lights. A few stray bullets could easily knock out the generator, leaving combatants to fend for themselves against the Kryll.”

Garden – “This overgrown and crumbling conservatory still has a working fertilization and pesticide system. This system can pose a serious hazard to anyone who ventures into the greenhouse without first venting the air.”

Process – “Fight for control of this subterranean Imulsion processing plant, still active despite the cessation of the Pendulum wars.”

Subway – “Timgad ‘s Central Subway station used to serve as a central hub for commuters. Now the tunnels are crawling with Locust.”

Here’s a note for those one or two people who weren’t aware: You’ll need to download these maps in order to unlock all of the Achievements in Gears.
