October 30, 2016

The Coalition has announced there will be several free Gears of War 4 DLC packs released in 2017, however they also announced there will be a Gears of War 4 DLC map pack dropping next month in November.

Today it was revealed that the first Gears of War 4 DLC pack will launch along with an update on November 1st for owners of the Gears of War 4 season pass, and become free for everyone a week later on November 8. It contain two fan-favourite maps from Gears of War 3: Checkout and Drydock. Checkout was also reworked and featured in Gears of War: Judgement.

Revisit the iconic supermarket in Cole’s hometown of Hanover 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3 in Checkout. Much like the rest of Sera, nature is reclaiming whatever it can following the Locust Wars, but that hasn’t slowed the fast, furious and frenetic combat that takes place between the checkout lanes and the electronics department:


Transported from a COG ship building facility to a ship breaking scrapyard on a Seran mudflat, Drydock returns with a vengeance to Gears of War 4 Versus Multiplayer and Horde modes:

Gears of War 4 is also currently running a Halloween promotion for players, including a gear pack and a new mode. The gear pack, named “Halloween Elite Pack” guarantees an epic or legendary card and can be purchased up until November 1. “Pumpkin Ball” is a dodge-ball-esque gameplay mode where respawn timers have been reduced to just one second, meaning gameplay is fast and somewhat scary. With two sets of Gears of War 4 DLC available, you have no excuse not to jump in!
