WHAT’S UP – JUNE 11TH 2020

BlackLivesMatter

You may have noticed our account go silent over the last week or so and that was with purpose. Alongside Microsoft and other Microsoft Studios, The Coalition pressed paused on our own posts to amplify and create more space for Black and African American voices. While our posts will be picking up again, we continue to stand together with our fans, creators, colleagues, friends, and the entire Black Community against racism and injustice.

As a reminder, you can report any abusive interactions to our team through our support site and also to the Xbox team. Any content or behavior that breaks the Microsoft Services Agreement as explained in the Community Standards for Xbox will be actioned on.

Enough is enough. Let’s stop the bullshit!

VERSUS EVENT: GNASHERS ONLY KOTH

Opponents battling each other with Gnashers

Take a staycation this week and jump into Gnashers Only King of the Hill – where the gibs are mighty and the Lancer Fests don’t exist.

NEW HIVE: THE CORRUPTION

The Corruption is a hive built around a seemingly overwhelming amount of Rejects. Players must explore and find explosive weaponry to deal with the onslaught of rejects.

NEXT FOR GEARS 5

We’ve got a few updates coming next week (no, not the new ranking system) but they are all part of our ongoing work to evolve Gears 5 into the game that you and TC wants.

SIGNING OFF

That’s it from us this week. Tune in to live.gearsofwar.com this afternoon as we return to the stream grind and continue to showcase our TCA Partners. This week we’re hanging with Shadowz, looking out for some sick plays and, as always, answering your questions. Can’t make the stream? Catch the VOD or check out his content on Youtube, Twitch, and Twitter.

Until then,

TC
