During the "Gearsiverse" panel, the folks at Epic Games announced that there will be some premium Gears-inspired Avatar costumes coming to the Xbox Live Marketplace. Although no immediate details on pricing were announced, the pair showed off two outfits, a set of COG armor, and a set of Locust armor.
Insomniac games was on-hand at this year's Comic-Con, and they announced two new weapons for Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time. These two weapons belong to the Constructo line, and will include the Constructo Pistol and the Constructo Bomb Glove.
The Constructo Pistol will feature expandable upgrades that offer different charges and elemental add-ons. The Constructo Bomb Glove also features expandable upgrades like the pistol, but of course these upgrades will pertain to ranged grenade-style bombs.
At the Next Generation of Marvel Games panel, it was announced that several of Marvel's most prominent heroes would be making their way into the thriving world of LittleBigPlanet. Three new concepts for Marvel-based Sackboys were revealed during the panel, including Wolverine, Iron Man, and Captain America. No word was given on when we could expect these special Sackboys to be available.
From the Halo anime to the new content for last year's The Force Unleashed, this year's Comic-Con featured plenty of cool announcements and surprises. Now that the biggest event in comics has ended, we can now look forward to September's Tokyo Game Show for even more announcements regarding upcoming games. Stay tuned!
