    The Gears 2 build you are talking about is called a UDN build, Unreal Development Network. They gave that out to developing that were interested in using UE3 for their titles, and to show them examples of how things were done and what was possible. The whole game is NOT included, only a campaign mission and 3 multiplayer maps. There exists Gears 1 and 3 UDN builds as well.

    Yeah I got it running on my last video. You have to make some config files changes to make it run the Gears 2 menu but it works great. Only problem is, if you try to stick a grenade on the wall, the game hardlocks.

    Ah that makes sense. Seems to be a 2010 build there's also a 2011 Gears of War 3 build not even sure where I got these from as I've got hundreds of gigs of data the past month or so.

    Yeah there is a lot of builds out there, most of them are more or less the same. Older, the more ugly.

    The 2011 build is the developer build that leaked from PNET I think

    Fun fact, the pink objects aren't "broken", the developers intentionally used a debug material that stands out to tell other modelers that it needs UV fixing or something to do with the model.

    When they went the DUDE BRO shooter, it was an actual title on the war of the gears story. So Gears 1 was always called WarGame. There is a leaked build online of this version of Gears of War with Unreal Engine v469. One of the many places the books had that the game didn't was Aspho Fields, which was a massive battle called Operation Leveler. There exists other maps as well in the prototype.

    Gears of War exists since the UE2 first announcement back in 2000 as one of the Unreal bots had the Locust sign on his back, it wasn't called WarGame, but I don't recall right now how it was called, the version we know was from the UE3 announcement at GDC 2004, but no one didn't know that the monster tech demo was from Gears of War as the game was only officially revealed at E3 2005

    EDIT: It was called Unreal Warfare, I think the same name was used for the 2002 tech demo, it featured what was meant to be the COG and Locust

    We aren't talking about the officially released title name, we were talking about the nickname of "wargame". UE3 games always have their games nickname in the front, in this case it was "war" and always ended in "Game".

    WarGame
    UTGame
    MobileGame
    UDKGame

    Just later on since they knew what the title would be, and for it to be more specific to the title, it was changed to GearGame.
