There has been a, shall we say flurry, of Gears 2 news lately. Tomorrow title update 3 for Gears 2 will become available and will add new achievements and replace the existing multiplayer ranking system as discussed in the item Gears 2, Title Update 3
. Last week, we learned the achievement list for the multiplayer system and the upcoming Snowblind Map Pack as discussed here: Gears of War 2: 1,425 gamerpoints

, a massive industrial complex with low bunkers and high sniping positions.*Under Hill
, which takes players through snowbound tunnels and beyond.*Courtyard
