With the release date pressing down and Comic Con taking course, one thing you can definitely expect is some new Gears of War lore.
Following on the heels of the “Rooftops” map, Epic Games has revlead the all-new “Island” map. So where is this Island? Island takes place on an archipelago of islands off the coast of Halvo Bay, which serves as a supply and re-fuelling depot. The individual islands are connected by a series of bridges and tunnels, forming a network of unknown size and security. This is restricted territory, and civilians are not permitted on, or even near any of the islands. The fact the locust are crawling on you knee-deep and rising, might also have something to do with that.
