Slowly, Treats from the Gears of War Universe Just Pour In
Out now, a new Gears of War 4 update for fan veterans. This latest patch, Series 2 Collection, significantly expands multiplayer content. We get over 280 collectible cards, including iconic characters from Gears of War 3. Out of a total thirteen, four make up our “first” band of legacy characters. However, there’s more in this latest patch.
Additionally, two fan-favorite maps have been re-imagined. “Blending together the best of Gears 2’s original take and the Gears 3’s re-imagining,” we get the Gears 4 version of Blood Drive. Battle through pillars and along city streets, where open terrain leads to longshot firefights.
Then we have the classical Clocktower re-imagined. It is now the Bank of Bronn, where players can reacquaint themselves with turkey shoots at the bank entrance. Otherwise, fight on the low streets for control of the center, in what will inevitably lead to back and forth chainsaw kills.
Both maps are currently available for Season Pass holders, and everyone on January 17. On top of that, The Coalition wants to give Season Pass holders more for their buck: Today, they announced sixty random cards from Series 2 Characters and Weapon Skins. This new Airdrop comes January 13, in conjunction with Bounty Gear Packs every Friday. Just be sure to login.
Furthermore, players who leaves games early will now be suspended from matchmaking. That’s right, salty players have to stick to their guns. First player to leave gets the most severe punishment. Players who consistently leave suffer longer suspension from matchmaking. If your departures rise, so do the punishments; moreover, if you are a party leader, no one in your party can enter a game until your suspension is lifted. In other words, don’t be that guy. And this is only marks phase 1 of The Coalition’s penalization updates. Developers may respond to feedback accordingly.
Speaking of, The Coalition has responded positively to player feedback. You can check out the full summary of changes to Gear Packs here. But, basically, everything is now less costly. And obviously we expect more changes from devs in the future.
Gears of War 4 is available for exclusively for Xbox One and PC, with more content yet to arrive. So remember to keep updated with COGconnected, and let us know your thoughts on this latest Gears of War 4 update. Do you think it’s a step in the right direction?
