Epic dishes on Gears of War 2 TU4, Dark Corners Achievements


Epic is waiting on certification for Title Update 4, the latest major update to Gears of War 2, but that didn't stop Rod Fergusson from hitting the forums and dropping some info. First of all, Public Horde matches will now have the ability to restart on a failed wave, instead of having to go all the way back to square one. Then there's the addition of experience to Horde mode (which we knew about), which Rod says will break down as follows:
  • 50 points per completed Casual wave.
  • 75 points per completed Normal wave.
  • 100 points per completed Hardcore wave.
  • 125 points per completed Insane wave.
Epic is also adding Achievements for the new Dark Corners DLC and updating the game with 325 more points of delicious Gamerscore. Head past the break for the full list.
