This Week in Gears: January 26 – Feb 1

With another week upon us, we have another edition of This Week in Gears lined up for you.

The Versus Event Logo

As mentioned last week, 14 Player FFA will be staying around for another week which means we’ll continue to bring the inevitable chaos you can come to expect in this mode. As a reminder we’ll be using four specific maps in this playlist – War Room, Pit, Nethercutt, and Core.

Enjoy, and let us know how you’re enjoying it!

We don’t have a Horde event this week but don’t fret PvE fans. There is still the daily Horde challenge as well as the daily & weekly Escape Hive (Lethal Engagements) which are chocked full of great rewards.

Stay tuned as we have a special Horde event coming your way soon!

Wow! We have been utterly blown away but the Gears Glory submissions and everyone’s creativity. Feast your eyes on a few examples chosen by our Community team below.
