Welcome to What’s Up – your weekly dose of everything in the world of Gears of War.

It’s easy to look ahead at all of the upcoming Gears goodies but we’ve still got a few tricks and treats to keep you busy in Operation 4!

  • We’re resurrecting the devilish 6.66 XP (MP only) for the Halloween weekend (Friday, October 30 at 10:00 am PT until Nov 2 at 10:00 am PT). Make sure to stock up on sugary snacks to keep the energy up to grind the weekend away.
  • The final two objectives in our Versus Event Medal group will be live on Tuesday, November 3.
  • The player’s choice Versus event is back! On Wednesday, Nov 4, you get to vote for the final Versus event you want to play in Operation 4.

We’ll have all the specifics in TWIG on Monday.

We know that everyone is very excited about what’s upcoming in Gears of War.

The next few weeks are shaping up to be very exciting for Gears fans. In case you’ve been living under a rock, on November 10 we’ve got Gears Tactics coming to console (with an update for all players) and a campaign update to Gears – both coinciding with the launch of the new Xbox Series X|S.

As if that weren’t enough, we got Operation 5 dropping on November 17. And Finally, the Gears 5 Hivebusters DLC is coming out this December.

Whew! That’s a lot of Gears of War! Make sure to stay tuned next week as we rollout a weeklong extravaganza on Gears Tactics as we go deep on Jack, new enemies and more!

That’s it for us this week. Make sure to pop by our Developer’s Stream today to hang out with Dana and TC Tyrus.
