If you're getting tired of battling on the same old battlefields in Gear of War, you're in a for a treat this week. Two new maps for the best-selling game are dropping on Wednesday.
- Raven Down: takes place on the bombed out city streets surrounding the crash site of a Raven Helicopter. With densely clustered car wrecks and detritus providing ample cover points, the map sees Delta Force make their way in from multiple access points to search for survivors.
- Old Bones: In an attempt to eradicate any traces of human history and culture, the Locust Horde has emerged under Sera's Capitaline Museums and has begun to destroy them brick by brick. Each gamer's mission is to help the Delta Force recapture the museums before all remnants of humankind's existence are obliterated.
