Gears of War 3 leaderboards point to unreleased maps

Monday, 26th September 2011 01:05 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A couple of entries on the Gears of War 3 leaderboards give a tantalising glimpse of what might have been – or of what’s to come.

Joystiq noted leaderboards for three maps not seen in the game’s multiplayer – Azura, Blood Drive and Rustlung – and even snapped a few screenies to prove it.

Apparently these names conjure delightful images in the minds of those steeped in the Gears of War canon. They may refer to test levels never intended to surface in the finished product, or to upcoming content – the latter seems more likely given Epic’s long polishing period.

Gears of War 3 is an Xbox 360 exclusive out now, to the great delight of our editor, who exclaimed his way through the first ten minutes for your unceasing entertainment.

    these are actually dlc maps some guy on youtube modded it and got azura and blood drive.

    so for 800 MSP you get
    new campaign
    new beast mode
    new horde mode
    new character skins

    My kids are loving this one. I enjoyed the first one a lot, but this one doesn’t really spark my interest and I can’t figure out why.

    @1 800MSP sounds like a good deal, but coming from Microsoft that sounds too good to be true. I have a feeling it’s going to be 1200 at it’s least.

    Pretty sure Blood Drive was a multiplayer map from Gears of War 2…
