Earn Unique In-Game Prizes in Gears of War 4 Event This WeekendJason Love

This Horde Variant playlist kicks off today and lasts until 1:00 PM Eastern Tuesday, February 28. In order to get the three unique Swarm Character skins, you have to register for the event over on the official site page. If you don't care about those skins, then you can still enjoy everything else the event has to offer, including the new Feral gear pack, the double Class XP bonus, and the playlist variant itself. The Feral gear pack has just three cards in it, but it also offers an increased chance to earn Epic Skills for the different classes, all for the reasonable price of 400 in-game Credits.

In addition to the new vertical splitscreen, the update that drops today also adds two new maps, Glory and Speyer, to multiplayer, and some various tweaks/improvements. One of the bigger ones for Horde are the changes to mounted turrets, which now do less damage, are less accurate, and have lower ammo reserves. The full patch notes can be found in The Coalition's community forums here.

There are a lot of titles on sale here so I definitely recommend perusing the full list. Outside of Gears of War 4, the other standout co-op titles I see here include Forza Horizon 3, Dying Light: The Following - Enhanced Edition, Dragon Age: Inquisition GOTY Edition, and a Master Chief Collection + Halo 5 Bundle. It's worth noting, again, that these deals are only on the digital versions of these games. The physical disc version will go on sale starting this Friday, November 24.

With an engaging campaign, smart Horde mode additions, and a cast of characters that go beyond being the stereotypical "meatheads," Gears of War 4 is an impressive achievement. The Coalition has not only successfully transitioned the series from its previous stewards, but clearly took the time to improve upon the formula as well. This jus...

The Prologue is set during E-Day and then 17 years later.  It is designed as a contained mission to help players get used to the game.  You won't get to play it yet, but you can see the video:

Along with the PC couch co-op, the developer also stated that cross-platform play for the campaign and Horde mode would be supported between the PC and Xbox One versions. So, if you've got the Windows 10 edition and your best gaming buddy prefers the Xbox One, you can still take out those Swarm foes together. Finally, both Xbox One and PC will also feature offline LAN play, up to two players for the campaign and up to five for Horde. While that particular feature is fairly common for the PC, it's surprising to see it for the Xbox One.

The two biggest additions to this version of the infamous Gears Horde mode are classes and player-built fortifications, such as turrets and barriers. While the reveal video showed off these features, there wasn't a whole lot of information about what those features actually mean in terms of gameplay. In a recent blog post, The Coalition went into further details and here are a few of the highlights:

It's worth a quick reminder that the Play Anywhere program only applies to the digital version of the game purchased through either the Xbox Marketplace or Windows 10 app store. So, if you pre-ordered a physical edition of the game for the Xbox One, you're only getting that version. The full list of supported Xbox Play Anywhere titles can be found on the Xbox website.
