A map pack for the hit Xbox 360 shooter Gears of War released four months ago has now been made free.
Epic and Microsoft released "Hidden Fronts" in May for $10, an add-on pack that included four maps for multiplayer play. Over 500,000 people paid for the packs.
These same maps can now be downloaded for free. They are described as follows on the Gears of Wars website:
* 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.
