This Week in Gears: November 10 – 16
Versus Event: Brothers to the End (Player’s Choice)
As voted by you, the people, we’re excited to bring a longstanding Gears classic back for the first time in Gears 5.
For those of you who may not have played this classic, Brothers to the End is a 2v2 TDM slugfest in which both teams begin with just 6 respawns, and; as the title suggests, it’s best to stick with your partner to the end.
Escape Hive: The Mist
Final week for The Mist, where you and your squad must navigate your way to the exit through a dense fog. Keep your head on a swivel as the enemies will use the lack of visibility to their advantage to ambush you any chance they get.
Gears 5 is getting a major campaign update so we’re bringing back a few items to the store. Don’t forget, this is the last week the store will be updated with new content. Once Operation 4 ends, all items in the Operation section of the store (except Marks and the District weapon set) will head into the vault; so, if there is anything you really want – now is the time to grab it.
To celebrate the introduction of Dave Batista as Marcus Fenix in the Gears 5 campaign, we’re giving away the Batista character skin and his iconic Batista Bomb execution for FREE! Just head to the in-game Store before the end of Operation 4 and claim them for yourself.
