Turns out that Gears of War 2 multiplayer map pack revealed this morning will be a retail and a DLC release. And that's not all.
While the retail edition bundles all previous DLC plus the seven new multiplayer maps on a disc called Gears of War 2: All Fronts, the DLC will deliver just the new content in a pack called Dark Corners.
As well as the multiplayer maps, Dark Corners also comes with a "deleted campaign chapter" called Road To Ruin. According to Microsoft, this chapter sees "Marcus and Dom return to the Locust Hollow in a scene that can be played two ways, guns blazing or in all-new stealth mode."
Dark Corners will release on July 29 and cost you 1600 Microsoft Points.
No word yet on when the All Fronts disc release will be available in Australia, nor how much it will cost. UPDATE: Microsoft has confirmed with us that there will be no retail disc release in Australia. Looks like we just get Dark Corners, not All Fronts.
