American gets new version, Europe to follow?

Microsoft has confirmed that a new edition of Gears of War will be hitting US shelves on June 24 and will be accompanied by a price drop.

The 'two-disc' version will include previously-released multiplayer maps and the Annex game mode.

Achievement whores will be pleased to know that the new version offers the potential to add 250 points to your Gamerscore.

There'll also be a bunch ofGears of War 2stuff on the second disc too, the majority of which you can see on our Gears of War 2game information page.

Microsoft UK was unavailable at the time of writing, but we'll be badgering them for a UK ETA and will keep you posted.
