FOUR new MP maps summarized (plus maybe more)

[ Edited ]

I'll just summarize.

 

Here we go: MP info inbound.



FOUR NEW MULTIPLAYER MAPS:



1) TROY. Biggest MP map. Could fit in two GOW3 levels.

Nighttime. City in ruins, and on fire.

Favour objective: Fire catapult to Trojan Horse (if you're Spartan) or Statue of Apollo (if you're Trojan).

3 levels (or tiers) on the map, interconnected.

LifeCycle will be on the map. Can lifecycle environments, like a gate act as a barricade that players won't be able to get through unless they hack it away. you can do lifecycle on other things, such as the catapult, the part of the bridge that connects the middle part of troy, things that may serve to slow others or use them as traps to kill.

There is a mounted flamethrower that you can control in the middle of the map, inside a building.



2) LABYRINTH from GOW3.

Starting Red and Blue cubes for each team, both will jump out of them to start the match, as the two cubes connect. Top-tier of the map has pick-ups, traps, etc. "domination area". 

Conveyor belt mechanism where you can jump to different levels on the map. Side view, a la the prison cube from the demo. Cubes will rotate 90 degrees and move about, just like Labyrinth. Background is where Pandora was held, with cubes moving around as well. Scorpion is the titan of the level, will attack players who are on the edges. Cubes will slide and move, and players might get thrown off. Green cube comes in, so Red, Green, and Blue cubes lock into place and players can move between all the three.



3) Gorgon Statue

level built around a big gorgon statue. Has a cannon where you can mortar enemies, can move the cannon across different levels of the map. Also has flamethrower. Players can use the head (for petrification, perhaps. I don't know how, maybe through a mechanism or lever).



4) The Bog from GOW2.

Has trees, vines, broken pillars, etc. Most likely a Favour of the Gods FFA mode map.



Prisoner from SP demo who vanishes will be your MP character. Gets transported, comes down from the heavens, brought before Zeus (or the four gods, I'm not sure still), then you're brought to the area like in the MP beta where you choose between the four gods' altars.



You start with each god's preferred weapon

Ares - Sword

Zeus - Gauntlet

Poseidon - Spear

Hades - Hammer

 

There's also some possibility of:

There's actually more maps that I think will be there, but I have no further clue of what they are except their names.

1) Persia

2) Olympia

3) Prophet (whatever that is. I didn't know what Statue stood for until I heard of the Gorgon Statue MP level).

4) There's also "HUN" and "FR", but I have not the slightest idea of what they are. Even then, i couldn't deduce "BOG" as a map too, until i confirmed that it is indeed a map.

Hmmm can you explain how you know this? Do you have the game or did you play around with the demo files?

And any other info you have? :smileyvery-happy:

3 levels (or tiers) on the map, interconnected.

 

level is built around a massive Gorgon statue.

 

Will have trees, vines, pillars, etc. although not THAT extensive that it'll be a forest or something, just relative to the Desert map which was barren.

It is real. Hundreds of views and ingrates never even bother to say thank you.

 

More info on Troy.

 

there is a mounted flamethrower that you can control in the middle of the map.

 

There is a cannon where you can mortar enemies across different levels of the map.

 

 

 

The prisoner at the start of the SP demo, who vanishes as he asks for the gods' strength...

 

will be your MP warrior. He gets transported to the tutorial level of the MP. Really cool and nice touch from Santa Monica.
