Its October and you know what that means nice tricks and free treats.
Next week, Gears of War 4 is having a huge update, which introduces two new maps, Xbox One X support, and what everyone wants in October a Halloween event. The Xbox One X arrives on store shelves this November, and what better way to unleash the “True Power” of the console than with a 4k update for GOW 4. The Coalition says it is preparing to bring support to the game as we lead up to its launch, by allowing players to pre-download 4K files.
The two new maps are Lift Apex and Fuel Depot. Fuel Depot is a map that was featured in the first Gears of War and Gears of War 2. Now, this large warehouse setting makes its return. Lift Apex, also inspired by an earlier map, is set in an Imulsion Extraction Facility in the middle of the Serano ocean. These two maps can be played by season pass holders as of October 23, whereas all other players can join in on October 30.
Gears of War 4 also has celebrations to look forward to, including a Halloween event which will feature new characters, weapon skins, and “spooky-themed events.” Then, in November, The Coalition will be celebrating its 11th anniversary for the Gears of War franchise.
