Earlier this month we revealed the start date for the Gears of War 3 beta, now we are hearing how the game’s multiplayer experience is going to be key to whether or not the Gears of War franchise has a future.
According to Epic Games’ design director the Gears of War 2 multiplayer experience was not up to scratch upon launch, after 6 title updates things were much better, however the general feeling seems to be if the GoW 3 multiplayer isn’t great upon launch the franchise is dead.
Chances are Gears of War 3 will be much better on release thanks to the beta testing which millions of Xbox 360 gamers will undertake, there was no public beta for GoW 2, therefore a lot of developers were unsurprised to hear of all of the multiplayer problems gamers experienced.
If you head over to IGN you can find out a lot more about how much pressure is on Epic Games to deliver a great multiplayer experience with Gears or War 3, do you think that Epic Games will step up to the plate and restrengthen the GoW franchise?
