Now while I don’t expect anything like this for Gears 5, I think adding a map editor could be a pretty cool idea! Maybe something we could see in 6?
Gears first had a ‘seudo map editor’ in the Gears 1 PC version. However, it was fairly complex in its design. What I’m thinking is more along the lines of a Halo Forge meets Far Cry Map Editor, where it’s streamlined, but you’re still able to make some amazing maps out of it. You could even implement scripting a la DOOM.
Where it could be more interesting, is where TC could then turn around and take maps that have a high rating among the community and integrate them into map rotations. Obviously this would be more for the social playlists, but would add a bit of extra variety and spice to the same ol’ maps we always see and play. I love Gridlock and all, but it would be nice to see something new, and what better than to have the community involved as well!
What are your thoughts?
