This Week in Gears – September 7 – 13

Hello everyone! Welcome to another This Week in Gears blog where we bring you up to speed with everything in-game this week.

September 10 marks the second anniversary of Gears 5! To celebrate two years of gibs, we’re running a combo with a reward and a 5X XP event, from now September 6 until Monday, September 13, 10 am PT. What’s the reward? The iconic V-Day Marcus skin, for free!

Everyone who plays a match in any PvP or PvE mode during the 5X XP event will earn V-Day Marcus. Do keep in mind that the skin will be awarded retroactively once Op 8 Drop 2 rolls out, so sit back and go on a few Gnasher duels while we deploy.
