Rumour: Gears of War Kinect an on-the-rails shooter

Wednesday, 9th February 2011 07:47 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Kotaku‘s reporting that the Gears of War Kinect title that’s apparently in development at Epic is an on-the-rails shooter.

The site is also carrying a shot of the game, albeit apparently from an old build of the game, showing Marcus in the main window with the player in a window bottom right of the screen.

Kotaku claims a demo of the game re-used elements, like assets and events, from Gears of War 2.

In November, Epic design boss Cliff Bleszinski said a Gears reveal at the Spike VGAs would be “not what you’re expecting”.

But just a few hours before the event itself, Major Nelson confirmed the showing had been canceled until sometime this year at least.

Epic also trademarked something known as Gears of War: Exile recently.

    I want a chainsaw to come with this when it releases. As in an lancer model but an actual working chainsaw that Kinect recognises, innit.

    I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again, Kinect will NEVER make a good hardcore game, it wasn’t meant for hardcore gamers, only possible way that it could make a decent hardcore game is through another peripheral but doesn’t that destroy the point of hands free gaming?

    what did expected? i mean you have no controller ton control your character so … its just logic that these kind of games will be on rail…

    @12

    Why is the Move the best in your opinion?

    @13:
    it’s not a opinion it’s a fact
    and Move uses PS Eye to track wand position which makes it perfect

    Oh it’s a fact, I see where I went wrong.

    What Move games are you looking forward to?

    @12 back_up doesn’t have opinions, he just generates pro-Sony sentiments no matter the relevance to the story at hand.

    I suspect he and itsucks are two rudimentary AIs, set loose on the internet to ensure the collective IQ of a comments section will never be able to rise past a certain point.

    Hmmmm cool. Any games that really make the most of the Move concept though? I mean input-wise Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4 aren’t that disimilar.

    Several of those aren’t even out, so how the fuck would you know? If you’re working for Sony that would explain all your dumb comments, but that seems incredibly unlikely.

    You said ALL of them make the most of the Move concept, how could you possibly know without playing through all of them yourself?

  25. back_up

    sports champion and ,The Fight: Lights Out, mag are all good with Move
    and those are not released but they looked good especially sorcey
    BTW don’t gamers watch the videos/trailer and say game is looking good or
    gameplay will be awesome (like you posted crysis 2)

    My point is you can’t really judge a game from it’s trailer, you can only judge the trailer.

    I fear you are wasting your time (as was I) with this fucking reprobate.

    He can’t respond with any degree of mature articulation to anything and in the meantime you will be banging your head against a figurative brick wall trying to work out why your sound and informed arguments, are being stonewalled with childish ignorance and Age 7 special needs level comprehension.

    Just smile and wave Crysis.

    Smile and wave.
