Epic Games revealed the last of the Gears of War 3 multiplayer maps today, and it's a returning favorite from the previous two games. Gridlock, a broken down street with wrecked cars to provide cover, has gotten a visual overhaul and new weapon spawn points, and now takes place under the cover of night.
The reveal means that for the first time, we have a full map list for Gears of War 3: the newly announced Gridlock, plus Checkout, Drydock, Hotel, Mercy, Old Town, Overpass, Sandbar, Thrashball, and Trenches.
Epic also promises that Old Town, Thrashball, and Trenches have been tweaked due to feedback from the public multiplayer beta. Examples include Trenches, which has been altered to include a new combat area, and Thrashball, which has been changed to prevent spawn camping.
The game is due for the Xbox 360 on September 20.
