The lights are on
A set of screenshots reportedly taken from an alpha build of a Kinect-only Gears of War real-time strategy game have surfaced on the Internet.
The screens show a top-down view of what appears to be a squad of four soldiers led by Baird. One screen implies that the mission shown is a defensive scenario, asking players to "hold out until help arrives."
VGleaks.com, the source of the images, reports that players control the squad of four by tracing the path they want their soldiers to take by tracing a line with a finger.
Nothing about the shots seems obviously fake, other than their overall low quality – which can be explained away by the site's claim that they're taken from an early video presentation. Microsoft and Epic have yet to respond to the leak, and are unlikely to given the fact that both companies invariably reply with a blanket refusal to comment on any rumors or speculation, but we'll be sure to update the story if anything comes of it.
Head over to VGleaks.com to see the full set of images.
cool hopefully kinect is optional though
See. Why can't Microsoft do INTERESTING STUFF - like this - with the Kinect? Why is it all mini games, fitness titles and party games? That thing is such wasted potential...
But why doesn't Microsoft make new IP? Why keep spinning off one of your TWO successful franchises into RTS games? First Halo Wars, now... Gears of War: Tactics or whatever? Microsoft are such failures. Just make new games, and nourish them, and turn them into major hits. Stop wh*ring out your few successes.
I think this is just a screen shot from Judgment. Remember how the last Kinect Only Gears Game went.
wait... kinect only?!
"Using your finger"? Unless you mean your hand, then this is fake.
A touch controller tactics game could be cool. Motion? Less cool. Motion controlled RTS? What? Gears of War? Huh?
I hope this is fake on the sole fact that it's already doomed.
Maybe this was Gears of War: Exile.
I like the idea of the motion controls on RTS games it seems so cool, but only if the motion controls worked...and this might be from gears of war exile
A Gears RTS sounds great! But Kinect Only? You really need to sell me on that with the controls.
I hope this isn't real. I love Gears of War but it seems like they are just driving the series into the ground. This series does not need a kinect only RTS.... No series needs a kinect only RTS for that matter.
Isn't this the cancelled Gears of War Exile game? It was rumored to use Kinect. I doubt this is a game in development at the moment. I don't know why people are getting upset about it.
Kinect only? What a terrible idea
Kinect rts?! My god, it will suck ass!
Giant thumbs down!!
I don't care for the looks of this at all. The overhead view looks kinda cheap. I am holding out hope for the next version of Kinect to have software that is truly fun and awesome. The games so far have been....well, you know...
