The Gears of War franchise is ready to celebrate Gears of War 4 10th Anniversary on November 7 and Microsoft is celebrating “10 Year of Gears” Event, one part of which is DLC called the Tenth Anniversary Gear Pack for Gears of War 4.
Additionally, Microsoft is holding some community events and competitions to celebrate the Gears of War franchise’s 10th anniversary; specifics will be announced at a later date.
Finally, Microsoft outlined some changes coming to Gears of War 4. An update available now will make changes to the Gear Pack system in an effort to create a “more consistent credit-earning experience,” as well as “more ways to build your collection of customization content as you play.”
As part of the update, the credit earn rate for versus multiplayer will be increased, while the number of credits received after a loss will be “much closer to winning.” This should help players earn more credits even if they aren’t playing so well, Microsoft said.
Another change in the update has to do with Gears of War 4’s Bounty system.
Gary Carmine is part of a special Tenth Anniversary Gear Pack built for our fans. This special pack contains Gary Carmine, a trio of weapons themed to the previous Carmine brothers, commemorative anniversary weapons and emblems to collect as you play.
Obtainable exclusively through gameplay, each 200 Credit pack contains one 10 Years of Gears customization item, one 10 Years of Gears Emblem or bounty, and a random card from the Gears of War 4 Launch Series of Cards. The full list of content can be found below:
