is it free or wii must buy it for Microsoft points?
Commented on 2007-04-09 23:41:49
Annex is free. The new maps cost.

Just here to say...the blood effect has changed. There is no dark thick blood. More like light splattering ones.

Definitely a weird bright red splash coming out of the gibs as and after-effect when they fly. Not sure I like it.

looks interesting, about time they added a new mode to multiplayer. Also, i could notice a diffrenece in the blood.

For a few months. Then they will be switched to free.

Lol. No, that would be UT Epic's other game.

The new Mode is awesome, got 30 kills in a 2 rounds match and I wasn't even good. Though I'm still rather confused about how the game works.

Just played it, it was awesome! you continually spawn until a team recieves the most point difference (or something like that). No more waiting for noobs playing hide-and-go seek. Advice: grenades always work if there in a crowded like the hammerburst location in Gridlock.

KILLS IN ANNEX DON'T COUNT TOWARDS ACHIEVEMENTS!!!

You play until one team reaches a preset score limit. At the end of the match, it displays the difference in your scores.

I absolutely love Annex, and it successfully brought me back to playing Gears atleast a little longer. If they can keep this up and add new maps, gametypes, and maybe optional weapons then ill keep coming back.

"The introduction of infinite respawns means that kills in Annex don't count towards any of the kill-based achievements like "Seriously …" or "The Nuge.""



--WTF?!?!? What about chainsaws and stuff like that?!?! That's pure BS. WTF epic. You bring shame to Epic Games.

Other than that, though, IT IS AWESOME. FUN. IT IS PURE MAYHEM!


@mosthated, hehehehehe UT3 isn't out yet, you silly goose.
