Legacy Favorites Return to Gears of War 4 with Series 2 Cards and New Maps
 

 
image

It’s a brand-new year, and we’re ringing it in with a new series of content and updates for Gears of War 4! This month introduces a huge 280 new Cards to collect, two of the most popular maps in franchise history, and hotly requested community features that further improve the Gears of War 4 online experience.

280 new Cards to earn as you play!

Series 2 is here, bringing with it our biggest content drop to date with 280 new Cards to collect. From iconic characters of the past, to a wealth of new weapon skins, there is something for everyone in this latest drop.

Thirteen (13) new characters are up for grabs in Series 2, including the first delivery of Legacy Characters in Gears 4! Armored Anya and Armored Sam are back in their Gears 3 armor, and Zombie Minh rises from the dead (sporting Raam’s blade-sized hole in his chest!). We also have a surprise legacy character that will be returning as a Scrap-only Card very soon. Stay tuned – we think you will be excited.

Additionally, there are over 260 new Weapon Skins to collect across 13 full weapon skin sets. Get flashy with the animated Lightning Skin, or show your cool with the Chillin weapon set. These new weapon skins offer you new ways to display your style and stand out on the battlefield.

All Series 2 cards are available in standard Gear Packs and are craftable using Scrap. We’ve been continuing to listen to fan feedback around our Gear Pack system, and are introducing new improvements to Gear Packs today which you can read about on our forums. Catch your first look at all the new content on offer in the image below.

More Value for Season Pass Holders

Since release, we’ve been working on adding even more value for our Gears of War 4 Season Pass Holders. Beginning in December, we added a Double XP and a 20% Credit Earn boost to the Developer Playlist to give Season Pass holders more every month.

Today, we’re excited to announce the Series 2 Airdrop for Season Pass holders! Coming this January, this special Season Pass Airdrop is loaded with twenty Gear Packs containing sixty random cards from the Series 2 Characters and Weapon Skins, giving you a head start on building your new collection of content.

This new Airdrop will be awarded on January 13th to anyone who has purchased the Gears of War 4 Season Pass, and instantly to any new Season Pass holders from that date onward. In addition, Season Pass holders will also now be able to log in and claim a bonus Bounty Gear Pack every Friday!

If you haven’t secured your Season Pass, there’s never been a better time to jump aboard.

Favorites Reborn

This month, two fan-favorite maps come to life in Gears of War 4: Blood Drive and Clocktower!

Blending together the best of Gears 2’s original take and the Gears 3’s re-imagining, Blood Drive in Gears of War 4 brings back intense, center-map pillar f!ghts with the improved flow of its refined sibling. Spawn at the Diner or the Morgue, then head to the city streets to battle it out over the Longshot and Overkill.


Clocktower also returns to Gears of War 4, re-imagined as the stunning Bank of Bronn as it’s slowly claimed by the Swarm. The imposing classic Gears architecture brings back memories of the battles you know and love, from the intense close-quarters combat in the lower streets to the Lancer-heavy crossfire at the Bank entrance.


Both maps are available to Season Pass holders in the Developer Playlist today (including Double XP and 20% more Credits), and will be available for free for everyone in Public Play starting January 17th.

Gears Art

image

Thank you to everyone who voted on their favorite armor from the Gears of War Art collection! In case you missed it, Gears of War Art involved renowned artists from around the world contributing a unique armor design for a special L.A. Gallery event around the launch of the game.

Not only did fans get to see the armor in-person at the gallery, but we also asked fans from around the world to vote on their favorite designs to be made into free DLC content in Gears of War 4 – and here are your winners!

Everyone who played Gears of War 4 before December 31, 2016 while connected to Xbox Live will receive all five (5) designs free in late January. Keep an eye on your Xbox Live Messages for a download code later this month.

Rockstar Challenge

Gears of War is continuing its partnership with Rockstar Energy to bring you the Rockstar Energy Horde Challenge, coming later this month!

Grab some friends and play Horde mode on new maps, Blood Drive or Clocktower, from January 19th to 31st to win sweepstake prizes. Complete 10 waves to win a Rockstar Energy Gear Pack, 50 waves to be entered to win Xbox.com gift cards, and 200 waves to be entered to win a custom painted Jesse Hernandez Gears armor set and mini fridge, complete with a year’s worth of Rockstar Energy Drink! Players in the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico and Brazil are eligible and can sign up through the Xbox dash starting January 19th.

New Features

Since launch, our team has continued to work hard on new features to improve the Gears of War 4 online experience.

Alongside the release of Series 2, Title Update 3 brings the first phase of a hotly requested community feature – quit penalties. Our new matchmaking timeout system punishes leaving the f!ght early, while our Join In Progress feature gives you the flexibility to rejoin the battle for a short time – if, say, your dog tripped the power cable. It happens.

This new update also contains improvements to Spectator Mode, keeping the action front and center while adding new features that give you more information about the intense eSports action playing out live. See it in action this Wednesday, January 11 for the first time during the Gears eSports f!ght Night from 3pm PDT on live.gearsofwar.com.

Full information on all this and more can be found in our full patch notes on our forums. We can’t wait to deliver further improvements, Legacy Characters and more throughout 2017. Here’s to another year of Gears! We’ll see you online.

Gear Pack Pricing Restructure

Over the holiday break we received a good mountain of feedback from the community regarding pricing on our premium packs (specifically UIR packs). I mentioned during the break that we were going to have a sit down with our live operations and business teams who manage these items. We wanted to relay feedback from the community over from during the break. This meeting occurred and we have some changes that will be coming to Gear Packs.

With Series 2 cards now hitting the game (Title Update 3), we will be adjusting and changing some of the Gear packs which contain Series 2 cards. We will also be adjusting and changing all future premium content packs as well. You can find the changes below.

Horde and Versus Boosters - 400 credits or $.99
- We've seen some positive comments since we adjusted these values late last year and we are going to stay consistent with those changes.

Operations Packs - 800 Credits or $1.99 (Formerly 1000 Credits or $1.99)
- We have adjusted credit values to better align with Horde and Versus Booster values for Operations Packs.

Elite Packs - 2000 Credits or $4.99 (Formerly 3500 Credits or $4.99)
- We have brought the credit values significantly down on the Elite Packs to better align with the above packs. Players will now have an easier time obtaining these with credits. We have also re-tuned Elite Packs to offer better rewards and results.

Community Packs - 400 Credits or $.99
- These packs will stay at the current pricing for future events. These packs are similar to our Gearsmas packs.

eSports Packs - No Credit Value and $9.99
- These packs are meant to help benefit the eSports programs and our prize pools. We will continue to keep these at their current price point to help drive additional prize pool and event funding.

Feature Packs - 2000 Credits or $4.99 (Formerly 4400 Credits or $9.99)
- This one is the big change. Future Feature Packs will now have a much lower credit and dollar value cost. We are wanting to make sure these are obtainable by those in their limited availability windows. For reference, Feature Packs are packs that contain new content and sold in special packs (ie: UIR Packs were a Feature Pack)


We are also looking at future ways of bundling Feature Packs and Community Packs. For example, if you buy four Feature Packs for $19.99, you will receive one pack for free. We are hoping to have this ready in time for the next big content release.

We also saw a good amount of feedback regarding Feature Packs feeling a bit of a dud with emblems. We are going to make some improvements to emblem drops in these packs so players won't see multiple emblems in the same pack.

These changes will take affect with all new packs starting with the Series 2 release. For the time being, we plan on keeping existing packs at their old prices but we may tweak these in the future.

Thanks for all the feedback over the past few months. We will be the first to admit that we aren't always perfect and we aren't always going to nail things but the feedback (though harsh!) is incredibly valuable in helping shape the best possible system for everyone.

Bout time they changed the pricing,still don't change the fact they wanted to r*pe people in the first place.

Devs need to take notes from games like PVZGW and Overwatch where the microtransactions are done right.

Still glad I haven't gave into a single microtransaction for any game yet

Good thing are price reductions and AirDrop for season pass owners, also the quit penalties are welcomed since quitting has never been this bad so I'm happy for all these, but "new" characters are pretty disappointing, I'm only interested in Corpse Gear and maybe Medic, others are meh ESPECIALLY those helmetless mugs, no appeal whatsoever, which actually is a good thing coz I won't be needing that much scrap after all

Not really excited about Blood Drive either, Clocktower looks dope and it's night time this around so that's cool, too bad we're not getting Gears 2 maps coz those were the best by far but I guess art style has changed since Gears 3 so re-making Gears 2 maps is a problem.

All in all it's a decent update, hopefully things get only better from now on, really glad they listened on pack prices too as that was one of the biggest complaints ppl had and for a good reason.

It's a big day for Gears of War 4. As announced previously, an update for the Xbox One and PC shooter coming today will add two new maps and 280 cards to collect as part of the Series 2 package.

The new maps are Blood Drive and Clocktower, Microsoft announced on the Xbox Wire. You may remember them, as Blood Drive first appear in Gears of War 2 and was reimagined in Gears of War 3. Now, it's been reimagined again for Gears of War 4. As for Clocktower, it was in the first Gears of War and Gears of War 3, according to the Gears of War Wikia.

People who own the Gears of War season pass can play both maps today in the game's Developer Playlist; double XP and a 20 percent credit boost are available right now. Everyone else can play Blood Drive and Clocktower starting January 17 when they enter the public multiplayer map rotation.Moving on to the new cards, today's update is the biggest ever in terms of the total number of new cards (280). There are 13 new character cards, including Armored Anya and Armored Sam, while there is also a zombie version of Minh. Microsoft teased that it will announce another legacy character card "very soon."



The update also adds more than 260 weapon skins across 13 skin sets, including the "Lightning" skin and the "Chillin" weapon set. You can get all the Series 2 cards through Gear Packs, while they can also be made using the game's Scrap items.

If I remember correctly they're rotating maps in and out so 2 maps in and 2 maps out every month.
