Years ago, the Locust Horde gathered under every major city and launched a surprise attack. Untold numbers died on Emergence Day, and rather than allow the Locust to keep the spoils of their aggression, humans used chemical weapons and orbital particle beams to destroy them - and their own cities. With most urban centers and military installations rubble, survivors gathered on Jacinto Plateau, whose solid granite strata could not be easily penetrated. When the Horde breached the plateau's defenses, Marcus Fenix defied orders to save his father at East Barricade Academy - but he was too late. Charged with dereliction of duty, he has been sentenced to 40 years in Jacinto Maximum Security Penitentiary...

About H.I.V.E Mode Lambent Edition with 0 comments by bmbr1990 on Jun 29th, 2014

This version bring a lot of new content, abilities and other stuff that you had occasion to see during development process. I know it is half year since last update, but I think it isn't wasted time for H.I.V.E. It's quite unfinished version but you will see it. I've made such decision to publish it with some bugs for one reason, I have less time for developing this mod, as only person which do it, progress drastically slowed down. There is a lot of bugs that I haven't occasion to fix. Now It's time to present what's new with Lambent Edition.

Main new feature is of course Lambent. They Appear at Wave 15 and are present to the last wave. You can encounter Lambent wretches, formers, drones and Drudges, Gunkers and Lambent Berzerker. They are exploding after death so be aware how close you are standing. Bigger Lambent Can kill you while dying. Alse there is a new Wave objective related to Lambent - Stalk Rise. When objective is active stalks rises from earth and spawn lambent creatures. You have to shoot pods to stop spawniong lambent and being able to damage stalk. When you kill stalk - you win. you loose if you run out of time. Last thing to mention is that Lambent and Locusts are enemies, so you can see they can fight each other.

Also you can play with new characters that made their apperance in other Gears Games. Since last update you can play as Sofia Hendriks, Alex Brand, Barrick and Alicia Valera. In next patch I'll Add Loomis and one more character. Also Locust team got some new soldiers. You can Encounter Mauler, Flamer, flame boomer, nemacysts and new Boss - Skorge*. With nemacyst there is a Wave objective related to them - Nema Rain. You have to survive attack of nemecyst, if you die you loose if you survive until timer is over, you win.

Also what this update will be without new weapons? Worthless. So you can burn out locust with Scorcher, Blow them out of cover with digger, slice them with cleaver, Poison them with Ink Grenade, and duel them with Chainsaws. You have to hit melee button fast to win chansaw duel.

Another feature that makes it another apperance in GoW PC are fortifications. You can build fortification between waves. You can place them anywhere you want, there aren't any fixed points on map to build them up. Wanna build a fort? Do it. place 5 sentries near you and make a circle out of razorwire. You need to take into account that placing fortificaton can be difficult. If you want to rotate fortification just hold fire and rotate mouse to rotate fortification. to place fortification press R.

Also you can play on new maps. Forsaken Dream and Strife are maps made by me so currently only playable version of those maps are for H.I.V.E. Another maps are Sanctum and Ravens Nest. Also you can play on old maps without redownloading them - all thanks to unrealscript. 

I got many messages about making video tutorial for installing H.I.V.E - so here is an occasion to make it and you can watch how to install H.I.V.E properly and enjoy it every minute you play.

Hope you gonna like new version - not counting evey bug and problem you encounter as something bad, if you can help me catch those bugs, I'll be able to fix them. And that is all for now, have a nice time killing horde of locusts and Lambent.

*Skorge is unfinished so if you see him not doing anything or just does not any damage to you- I know about it.

Can anybody tell me, why there are no mods for Gears? You get the whole Unreal Engine 3-toolset to create own maps and mods on PC, so why the hell is this section empty?

I agree with LAUGHING_MAN, theirs no way that i will paying to go online too, look at UT3 for an instance, you dont have to pay to go online for that, and it's made by same game designer/makers EPIC. So really for PC user it should be free, as we allready have to pay for a internet provider anyway. I'll just stick to my games where online play is free such as UT04 UT, UT3,D00M3 and so on. It's just another way to get our good earned money out of our pockets.

Is it moddable anyway as i see no mods yet being made or developed!

Gears on PC is great, and runs really nicely on a fairly high-end system. I just wish there were more multiplayer servers. Anyone in the UK or around Europe want to play some co-op some time?

You have a good point there, I mean I can just about get it on Medium settings, but it still looks nice and I would like to see more active players on the game. Everytime I've tried to get online, there's been a maximum of about 3 servers, though they usually have a full list of players.
What do you think it's down to? I think it's the lack of player created maps and custom content to be honest.

i dont play online for the simple reason i dont want to pay my good money to have to play online, i dont have to do it for all of my other online games so why this one, and i think this is the reason why lots of other people dont play.

I'd just like to ask, how many people own Gears of War on PC? Apparently it sold quite well, but I'd like to know roughly how many people on ModDB have it :)

It's pretty generic, just like most third person shooters this days. shoot the shit out of lods'a monsters, hear a annoying briefing that won't help you even a bit, use bigass machinegun, face different enemies and all the shit you can imagine(in a action game of course). But, this game, has nothing too inovative, it's just, TAKE COVER, SHOOT, SPRINT TO COVER, SHOOT, KILL AND ENEMIE USING MELEE, ADVANCE IN STAGE, KILL THEM, KILL MOAR LOCUST, ADVANCE IN STAGE, and keep on goin'. i had a bit of fun…
