Here’s a Rundown of All the Horde 2.0 Features in Gears of War 3 (VIDEO)
Epic has greatly reworked Gears of War 2′s Horde mode for its upcoming sequel, and quite a few of those additions are based on a new economy that runs inside the game. Namely, you kill bad guys in Horde, you earn money, which you can use to buy things.
The video below shows the idea in practice, and it looks like it’ll work well in Gears, although they’re not super-original. They will add some strategy to the proceedings, though — it seems players can share money, ammo and weapons, and complete different challenges that pop up at random in order to earn bonus cash. And cash can be spent on weapons and fortifying different locations, which is nice. Horde was already a de facto “find a good spot and defend it” kind of game, so actually having the ability to upgrade real defenses is going to make things interesting.
