What’s Up September 10
Welcome to What’s Up! Your one-stop location for everything in the world of Gears. Today is the one-year anniversary of the official launch of Gears 5. The last year has been quite a journey. We know there have been some ups and downs but on behalf of everyone at TC, thank you for coming on this journey with us.
We’ve still got lots more planned and can’t wait for what the future holds. But in the meantime, we have cooked up some goodies in celebration of today (beyond the early release of Sam, Minh, and Sraak).
We’re giving everyone free boost and 3xp until the morning of Monday, September 14. For those of you not familiar with how boost works – it means a robust 6XP. There has never been a better time to chase those Re-ups and level up your PvE Classes.
And finally, make sure to head to the store and pick up your FREE Anniversary Weapon Set.
Yesterday we launched Gears Armory – an Instagram page dedicated to sharing the latest Gears swag, collectibles, sweet deals, and sneak peeks! It will also be a hub for us to spotlight some of the fantastic tattoos, fan art, cosplay, and everything else in the world of Gears creations. Make sure to tag us so we can share your great work with the world!
To celebrate the launch of Gears Armory, we’re giving away an entire set of Gears of War action figures from Storm Collectibles. To be eligible just make sure you follow both @GearsArmory and @GearsofWar on Instagram; like the most recent post and comment #sweepstakes & tag two friends.
This is just the first of a whole bunch of planned giveaways over the next few months so make sure to check @GearsArmory regularly.
We made minor update to the game today. We’re not thrilled with how Pahanu plays in KOTH so we have pulled it from all KOTH playlists (Ranked, Quickplay, Events, and Beta).
That’s it for us today! Make sure to join us on the stream today as we answer your questions and celebrate all things Gears!
