Epic unable to add Gears of War 3 unlocks from past Epic games

Shooter Xbox 360 News Microsoft EA Epic Action

Apparently Gears of War 3 was supposed to have special unlockable equipment and skins for those who had played previous Epic games. This would have included a special gun from Bulletstorm and a Shadow Complex gun if they had been able to implement these features. Unfortunately due to restrictions on the Xbox 360 itself, Epic will not be able to do this.

Epic Games lead gameplay programmer Joe Graf explained on his Twitter that the Xbox 360 will only read data from inside the publisher and developers own family. Meaning that Gears of War, which is published by Microsoft Games Studios, will not be able to access data from Bulletstorm which is being published by EA. There may be workarounds in the future but as of now these special unlocks are canceled.

    trust microsoft to balls everything up for everyone else. The amount of limited content they have epic should just do it for the ps3 and pc and tough luck to xbox users.

    LOL, the game is published by Microsoft Games Studio. Epic are not going anywhere with Gears. It would be nice though if PS3 users could get to play this gem of a series, but Microsoft won’t let go.

    The game itself is going to make up for a couple of missing unlockable guns and skins. Just bring on September already. The wait is killing me.
